Recently, in various management practices (especially in the private sector) new technologies are constantly being developed. The main aim of such methods is to improve organizational effectiveness. Often, government use proven methods and management technologies that were effective in the business sphere. Outsourcing is an example of such technologies.

Moreover, the focus of the research work is concentrated on analyzing different approaches of defining the outsourcing process.

The study results have been gained with the help of the thorough analysis of the city mini-buses reform of the Department of Transport and Development of Road Transport Infrastructure in Moscow and the ratio of its content with the theoretical base in order to identify signs of using outsourcing as part of the reform. The other part of the results is based on a survey of the citizens' satisfaction with such kind of public transport as minibuses after they were outsourced and comparison of the data obtained with surveys conducted before the reform. Comparative analysis has shown that the use of outsourcing in public administration really increases the level of provision of public services, which proves the hypothesis that we formulated in the beginning of the study.
