The Institute for Public Administration and Governance (IPAG) of the Higher School of Economics National Research University (HSE NRU) specialises in research, developing and implementing applied solutions in the field of public and municipal administration in the Russian Federation.
The institute was formed in 2003 as a unit of the Higher School of Economics National Research University.
IPAG draws on the expertise of about 50 full-time staff members.
Overcoming the fallout of the crisis and creating the new image of post-crisis Russian economy, first and foremost, requires the implementation of efficient methods of budget expenditures – the network of measures used by institutions and mechanisms, established in recent years during public administration and budget reform.
The purpose of this research is to develop methodological approaches to introducing tools of efficient management of public resources in current processes of administration and management (budget, lawmaking, regulatory, law enforcement, carrying out existing complexes of activities).
During the research, we focused on the following tasks:
The information base used in the paper included regulatory acts in the area of strategic planning, budgeting and activity control, results of monitoring the implementation of administrative regulations (IPAMM, 2008), results of the project Instruments of Monitoring in Systems of State Strategic Planning (2009).
In the course of the paper, we carried out an analysis of budget expenditure efficiency and prepared proposals to eliminate the main areas of inefficiency, including:
The scale of improving efficiency of budget expenditures is characterized by the reserves available in this area. First of all, these reserves are associated with excessive government involvement in the economy, non-optimality of state commitments in terms of their volume, targeting and forms, broad interpretation of legally prescribed financial obligations and unbalanced obligation distribution across budgeting systems. Amid the overall growth of financial security of state-financed organizations during the pre-crisis period, the quality of services rendered by these organizations remained poor, falling behind individual and business requirements. Currently, the state dominates not only in the traditional "state-financed" sectors (such as education, healthcare and social security), but also in several other industries, producing goods that do share the properties of public goods and are not related to securing individuals’ constitutional rights - and therefore essentially do not require state participation.
Due to the fact that the efficiency of budget expenditures can be determined only at the end of every budget cycle, it is necessary to have instruments for current adjustment of projects and programs that have a direct impact on budget efficiency. Therefore we developed proposals for a system of monitoring the implementation quality of the Program aimed at improving the efficiency of budget expenditure.
The amount of expenditure earmarked for public property maintenance, including state-financed organizations and entities, is estimated at up to 35% of the consolidated budget expenditures of the Russian Federation. We determined institutional conditions for improving the efficiency of public property management, including that of state enterprises and entities and worked out proposals to streamline the system of corporate governance for state-related companies.
