The implementation of a new approach to government and municipal procurement in the EAEU countries, caused by the potential of a common market space, would solve many important market problems, including the urgent practical problem of import substitution, exacerbated by Western sanctions. It allows formulate the conceptual proposals for solving the problem of import substitution in the field of information and communication technologies.
