Russia and the other CIS states have made significant improvements in recent years in building infrastructure, reducing the state's role in the economy, reforming the tax and financial systems and lessening their reliance on energy and raw materials.

PIRIT is well positioned to fulfill this need as it has an extensive customer base of administrative bodies (Presidential Administration, Federation Council and State Duma) and other large-scale organizations including ministries, banks, insurance companies, major manufacturers and universities.
