PROJECT PLANNING AND ITS IMPACT ON THE BUDGETARY PROCESS

12:30-13:45 Congress Centre, Conference Hall B2
Project activity by the Russian Government is primarily aimed at focusing the administrative and financial resources required for fulfilling specific tasks. The action plan for implementing project activity calls for amendment of the strategic planning legislation, the tax code, and the state programme development procedure. Creating a transparent management system, which would ensure alignment of the project approach and results-oriented budgeting methods, is another crucial task. What project management tools can be used to ensure maximum efficiency? How can the strategy, government programmes, and budgetary process be efficiently linked to project planning? Are there lessons that can be learned from the corporate sector, especially considering the rules and specifics of management within government bodies?

Highlights

We have been given the strategic task of achieving growth rates exceeding global ones.

Tatyana Golikova
Chairwoman, Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation

Given the experience we have of government programmes, it is clear to us that we should transition to other, more understandable, easier and manageable mechanisms for determining budget priorities.

Tatyana Golikova
Chairwoman, Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation

A programme and project approach is always better than lack of one. Goals, instruments and actuators must be structured understandably.

Anton Siluanov
Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation

A state programme should focus on resolving issues of development not functioning. There should be a special management mechanism, largely tied to the Ministry of Finance.

Vladimir Mau
Rector, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA)

The head of state charged the government and the expert community with developing a programme of structural reforms; that programme should determine priorities in the country’s development that would allow the growth rate to be achieved and the tasks set us by the President fulfilled.

Tatyana Golikova
Chairwoman, Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation

We do not know in what situation we will find ourselves a year from now. We should create a maneuverable and adaptable management tool.

Andrey Slepnev
Deputy Chief of Government Staff; Director, Project Management Department, Government of the Russian Federation
