HSE hosts discussion of draft section of regulatory policy on the Country Development Strategy Until 2024
On 27 September, NRU HSE hosted a round-table discussion, titled Discussion by the regulatory policy bloc of proposals for the Russian Strategic Development Strategy for 2018 – 2024, held under the auspices of the Centre for Strategic Developments and the Institute for Public Administration and Governance, as part of work, performed by IPAG under the government assignment Development of proposals for individual aspects concerning improvement of public administration(for the CSD).
CSD Vice-president Maria Shklyaruk and Director of the RIA Centre Daniil Tsygankov have written a column in the RBC on the directions and prospects of regulatory policy in Russia.
A discussion with Daniil Tsygankov on how the practice of regulatory impact assessment came into being, what approaches exist to implement it, how RIA procedures are applied in Russian and much more.
The Centre for Strategic Developments is proposing a decisive regulatory reform, in line with the working materials of the Country Development Strategy 2018–2024, discussed at the CSD on 8 June. One of the ideas is to create an administrative tribunal of 7–9 people, which will do away with so-called “sticking points in the law”, meaning omissions in enactments, superfluous and contradictory norms. There is currently no effective means for their repeal, but such a tribunal would give impetus to deregulation in 3–4 years, the CSD believes.
An article in the Kommersant newspaper contains the opinions of Director of the NRU HSE IPAG RIA centre Daniil Tsygankov and other experts.
Public authorities appear wholly unable to introduce import substitution into software. This is the second time this year that the procurement of computers with Microsoft software for the Internal Affairs Ministry has raised questions at the Federation Council. They believe that the department turned away without just cause from similar, domestically produced software. Experts point to a loophole: Officials are currently not prevented from procuring foreign computers, the manufacturers of which install the software themselves. The opinion of leading expert from the Institute for Public Administration and Governance of NRU HSE Dmitry Kozhevnikov and other specialists can be found in newspaper article in Kommersant.

To ensure state sovereignty of the Russian Federation by as early as 2020, networks of Russian communications operators and data centres shall consist of 85% equipment domestic manufacturers. Such is the proposal contained in the "roadmap", drawn up by the working group under the Russian presidential administration.
Leading expert from the Institute for Public Administration and Governance at NRU HSE Dmitry Kozhevnikov notes after studying the document that analysis of the current situation in the industry within this "roadmap" seems somewhat partisan, as it concentrates on foreign economic factors, while the indicators and their dynamic appear contrived.
