If they do not have enough of this information, they will find it hard to determine their policy and the way they should conduct themselves on the market, especially when making long-term or medium-term plans. In this respect, an open budget is important because it reflects the key parameters and the key preferences of the authorities and business may ‘tune its conduct in line with the expenditure outlines that the government specifies for itself.’

Olga BYCHKOVA, a host on the Echo of Moscow radio station, opened the discussion and presented the participants:
'We have gathered here today to talk about public services, about the state of affairs today with the concept that was put forward and named the Public Services Supermarket.' It is believed that sooner or later there will be a situation when a civilian will be able to come to a place and, in one location, receive all that he or she officially needs from the state quickly and effectively. But how does this actually happen? How are the administrative obstacles overcome? We have quite a panel with us here today: Russia's Deputy Minister for Economic Development Oleg FOMICHEV, Alexei KHERSONTSEV, Director of the Department for Public Regulation in the Economy under the Russian Ministry for Economic Development and Andrei KLIMENKO, Vice-Principal at NRU HSE, Director of the HSE Institute for Public and Municipal Management.

Are Russians happy with the quality of public services?

Almost three quarters of Russians are happy with the quality of public and municipal services, provided by the respective Russian agencies. A survey by the Russian Academy of National Economy presents evidence that the quality of public services is rated as good and very good by 74.6% of respondents, surveyed in November 2011 in 20 constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

Cuts in bureaucracy are essential

Over the last 10 years the number of Russian civil servants across all levels has grown 1.4 times. This data is contained in the final report on adjustment of the long-term strategy until 2020, which has been submitted to the government. There is an excessive number of civil servants in Russia and they hinder economic growth, believe the government report’s compilers, and they are basically something the country can ill afford. The budgets of all levels spend about RUB 67 billion a month on their salaries alone, or RUB 804 billion a year. If their number is reduced to even just the level of the year 2000, annual savings of some RUB 240 billion will be assured. Given the expenditure on premises, transport, communication and so on, these sums could double, believes director of the NRU HSE Institute for Public and Municipal Administration Andrei KLIMENKO.
