The Government will work in a new way
Implementation of the project approach in the government – state administration reform, launched in the spring – is facing problems, write "Sheets", Referring to the officials involved in the discussions. Do ministries and government staff have differences: on the scheme of work of the project office, the efficiency indicators (KPI), who will be responsible. End to the dispute at a meeting of the Board of Strategic Development August 24 can put his head Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
There are several important criteria that will make the project design, and not just another state program, says one of the interlocutors "sheets": It should be clear who is responsible for the project, deadlines (2018, 2020 and 2025.), The KPI specific, you need to bypass the standard approval procedures.
The project must not be vague topics like education, namely: increasing the availability of equipment and libraries, not export support and reform of trade missions and the creation of logistics centers, lists the official. The project manager must have an official, who has competence for the project, and enough time to plunge into it, so it should not be the minister, and a lower level, such as his deputy. With this approach, agrees the first vice-premier Igor Shuvalov, as well as presidential aide Andrei Belousov, said the official. But against the ministers, the source continues "sheets"They themselves want to be responsible for the projects. "It blurs the responsibility, while the deputy minister lost all motivation – until a particular person does not realize that he is personally responsible for the project, nothing will change"- explains the federal official.
The third cause for disagreement – evaluation of projects. Ministry sent its KPI formulation, and often they are as follows: improvement, expansion, improvement and optimization of procedures and other standard set of phrases that are so fond of officials, says the source “Vedomosti”. But the KPI should be very specific, for example, should be reduced term of access to certain public services. Ministry of scares this approach, concludes the official.
Fourth, and most painful question – how the Ministry will respond to the rejection of inter-agency coordination.
How should work
The project approach may well be faced with the sabotage of the ministries, warns a former official, for example, the deputy minister, who is engaged in the project, his immediate superior can entrust the coordinate position with him. Guide corny does not like to share power, the source continues "sheets". Sensitive issue – the allocation of funds (especially budgetary) – The Ministry of Finance controls the whole process and is unlikely to want to let him go by himself, he said. This should not be a big problem, because the project does not involve knocking out additional money, on the contrary, the essence of the approach – less money and more responsibility, the federal official objects: this is what scares many ministries.
The reform is partly strengthen the position of Medvedev, says chief economist Vladimir Tikhomirov BCS as structuring system solutions and responsibility, which is now dispersed in various departments. Now, many ministers go to the president directly: now the main role will be played by the Vice Premier. But the president and he was tired of the constant stream of lobbyists, said Tikhomirov.
