GORKI, April 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian government reviewed the implementation of state programmes in 2013 and made a critical evaluation.
Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said “state programmes do not perform the function we expected” and “we must work hard on their contents in order to meet the key target figures”.
Only five of 38 state programmes were recognised as highly effective and three were proclaimed ineffective. The former include projects in such fields as social support, healthcare, aircraft building, combatting crime, and protection from emergency situations. The latter are science, forestry and fisheries.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said one of the objective difficulties was the overall decline in investment activity, but “this does not relieve contractors from their responsibility for the implementation of state programmes”.
The government is planning to funnel 95% of the federal budget into state programmes by 2016. Presently, no more than 58% (about 76 trillion roubles) go through these mechanisms.
“We are planning to bring this figure to 75% within two years if a state programme for the development of the pension system is approved, and to 95% after a state defence capability programme is approved,” Medvedev said.
