GORKI, May 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov to consider the corruption-related aspects in the development of state programs.
The prime minister recalled that the Cabinet is to develop and approve several state programs in 2012. “This is the work not for one day, because it also envisages general systematization and the adjustment of activities to make budgetary expenditures more optimal and more transparent,” Medvedev added. “There is one more aspect in this issue, the corruption aspect, which is estimated in different ways, but also influences the efficiency of expenditures. I would like you to estimate this as well,” the premier added.
For his part, Shuvalov noted that “the projects of the state programs will be posted in the Internet to discuss them publicly.” “Before the end of the year we should develop these programs,” Shuvalov went on to say, adding that at least five programs will be developed.
Shuvalov noted that the method of programs changes the principle of federal expenditures. “We worked earlier under the federal targeted programs and departmental programs,” the first deputy prime minister recalled. “The non-program method was changed and, on the one hand, becomes more complicated for the agencies, which should pass from the federal targeted programs to state programs, and, on the other hand, all expenditures of federal, regional and other levels are being consolidated, become absolutely transparent and the goals are set for budget allocations,” the deputy prime minister said.
