GORKI, November 9 (Itar-Tass) — The Ministry of Education and Science intends to conduct an independent audit of spendings, Minister Dmitry Livanov told the meeting of the government commission on coordination of the open government' activities.
Speaking about the plans, Livanov said the ministry would certainly make its work more open. In particular, more information will be accessible, including in the Internet.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev supported the idea to conduct an audit in the system of the Education and Science Ministry. These are absolutely reasonable things, he said, after hearing Livanov's report. People want to know on what money are spent. People want to know much, including how a salary is formed, and not only in the ministry, but also in some universities, the premier noted. Activities of the open government and the commission must expand in this direction as well, he believes.
