Introduction: the level of digitalization of the Russian economy achieved so far contributes to the formation of a digital platform for the public administration, whose further improvement will undoubtedly accelerate and simplify the interaction of the state with business. In recent years, the procurement sector has also been reformed in this direction: its electronization has been carried out, whose important stage has been the creation of a Unified Information System. The relevance of studying the results of these reforms lies in the need to identify the barriers to the development of electronic procurement, whose transformation into digitalization will certainly contribute to improving the efficiency of Russia’s economic development. The purpose of the study is to assess the effectiveness of the electronic procurement system in Russia and to identify the factors hindering its development to develop proposals for its improvement. Methods: the methodological framework for the study is statistical and theoretical analysis, synthesis, comparison. Results: the paper presents the assessment results of the effectiveness of the electronic procurement system in Russia, its role in the country’s economy, as well as the factors hindering its development. In the course of the analysis, the main characteristic features of the modern procurement system are highlighted; the relative savings in procurement are investigated. Conclusions: among the key shortcomings, the instability of the legislation in procurement and the wrong orientation of efforts to improve the functioning of the Russian procurement system are identified. The results obtained can serve as a basis for the development of proposals for its further development.

Key words: procurement system, electronization, digitalization, unified information system, legislation, reform.
