Medvedev is going to "cut" the state apparatus by 10%

63
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced another initiative to reduce the number of civil servants. This time we are talking about an optimization program, in which the reduction will affect 10% of the number of employees of various government agencies of various levels. This is the official Russian Cabinet website.

Medvedev is going to "cut" the state apparatus by 10%


Dmitry Medvedev instructed the Ministry of Finance before July 1 to submit proposals on the optimal reduction of the number of government employees.

The prime minister, during his speech before the State Duma 22 deputies of April, started talking about the need to think again about the need to reduce the state apparatus at various levels. According to the chairman of the government, Russia needs a compact and efficient state apparatus, which is oriented on citizens' requests.
New cuts are planned to be made both at the regional and at the state level.

The initiative itself Medvedev causes approval from the Russians, but not everyone is confident in its implementation. According to opinion polls, more than 82% of Russians advocate a reduction in the number of the state apparatus.
At the same time, the overwhelming majority of respondents are not sure that the optimal reduction will be carried out in reality. The main reason for such skepticism is that there is systematic talk about reducing the number of officials in Russia, but they do not always lead to a result. So, Medvedev's previous order to reduce the state apparatus by 20%, in his own words, was implemented “somewhere better, somewhere worse.”

ITAR-TASS presents an infographic on the change in the number of civil servants in the Russian Federation in recent years:

          And so it will be. Especially the average salaries "in the hospital" made me happy. In the regions, "specialists" of all kinds of federal "supervision" receive a penny, 13-15 thousand rubles each.

        The increase in the number of officials in any administrative apparatus obeys the well-known Parkinson's law, which states that the increase in the number of officials in the administrative apparatus does not depend on the volume of work performed by this apparatus, but tends to a steady gradual increase due to self-bureaucracy of the administrative apparatus.
        Parkinson’s Law on the increase in the number of officials is perfectly confirmed by the multiple increase in the number of officials in Russia, compared with the number of officials throughout the USSR.
        In the apparatus of the Government of the Russian Federation, it is necessary to reduce all non-professionals who drag a bunch of different kinds of advisers into the management apparatus, because they themselves do not possess the necessary knowledge, life, professional and production experience.
        Remember: the head of the public health was an accountant, the defense was a salesman, etc. etc.
        And the first one you need to reduce is the prime minister of the Government of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, who does not have any economic knowledge, does not have enough life, professional, production experience to occupy such an important post of government in the state. So a lawyer who has never worked in her specialty anywhere other than an educational institution.

        A little more about the sanctions:
        Canada demands Magna to stop cooperation with Avtotor
        The government of the country demanded that the Canadian-Austrian company Magna break off all relations with the Russian Avtotor. Magna is not only one of the world's largest automotive component manufacturers, but also a participant in the project of creating an autocluster in the Kaliningrad region.
        The letter sent to the Magna company by the Canadian government was reported by the chairman of the board of directors of the Russian company, Vladimir Shcherbakov, to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during a visit by the head of government to Kaliningrad. Medvedev examined one of the plants of the Avtotor group of companies.
        According to Shcherbakov, Canada demanded to terminate the contract with Avtotor. However, in response to this, the Austrian mission announced that it intends to continue to work with Russian partners.
        Medvedev, in turn, instructed the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Denis Manturov, to keep this situation under control, including in terms of relations with Canadian companies. “We need to see and send some kind of letter,” the head of the Russian government quoted RIA Novosti as saying.

      The population (since Soviet times) has not increased. Functional responsibilities are about the same (and then everything also worked). Without exception, all civil servants now have computers (in theory, labor productivity should grow significantly). That is, there is no reason to increase the number of employees. It would be more appropriate to talk about their reduction at times, and not by units of percent.

Obviously, they used to steal and buy at inflated prices, but they are stealing and now, while buying the rarest Chinese city at low prices ... A living example, a brother in the civil service, told: in 2005, special multi-thousand candle lamps "Siemens" were purchased at a price of 5000 a piece. After 8 years, a replacement was required, a Siemens tender was held at a cost of 10, but Chinese analogues of 000 appeared, the declared characteristics are the same. I had to take it, after 4 weeks they started to burn, after a month all 500 (2 million rubles) burned out, a new tender, again Chinese ... In short, instead of 500 million (our taxpayers' money) and 2.25-5 years of equipment operation, for last year it is too early, otherwise not to say, 8 million and this continues. (((

To take as an example the reduction in the police, all the chiefs remained, and the working personnel were cut down by the very least, especially in the districts (although the reduction concerned only high-ranking officials).

      As the results of comparison with other countries of the world show, the opinion of an overabundance of officials in our country is quite controversial. So, if in Russia, according to the results of 2011, there were 10 officials in government posts per 67 thousand people, in economically growing China this figure is about 50, according to RIA-Analytics experts.
      At the same time, approximately 10 people employed in the civil service account for 250 thousand people in Romania, about 300 in Germany and Norway, about 350 in the USA, and about 400 civil servants in France (i.e., in the relative values ​​of officials in France, 6 times more than in Russia!).

      Outwardly, the idea looks great - to reduce 10% of officials (service people) to increase the efficiency of the state apparatus. Urya-I-I-I - !!!!!
      In reality, it will look something like this ... There is a certain government ministry (agency, service). Her boss will receive an order for a 10% reduction. The topmost boss will think and give an order to reduce the central office by 3 percent, and one level lower will lower the order to reduce percent by 12. At that level, the next boss will do a similar procedure, and so on. in the Result at the lowest link, i.e. leading directly rough work, will be reduced by all 20%. It would be okay if this reduction was accompanied by a change in approaches to work, all unnecessary bureaucratic crap in the form of endless reporting on the same eggs in profile, full face, bottom, top, at an angle of 30 degrees, etc. those. a real increase in work efficiency. But it will turn out just the opposite: the bureaucrats remaining on top, to justify their existence, will spawn a bunch of circulars and let them down for execution. All this has already passed and more than once. But a certain character wanted to step on a rake once again. At one time, he also reduced the police, and then wondered why it turned out to be 2 police officers for the entire Kievsky railway station ...
      There are no words, it is necessary to increase the efficiency of the state appraisal. But the number of civil servants should be reduced only according to the results of ALREADY CARRYED OUT ACTIVITIES THAT REALIZED. Those. Reduce posts that have become unnecessary due to INCREASED EFFICIENCY, and not vice versa.
      Again, the causes and effect are mixed up in places. About 10 years ago, an administrative reform was carried out in the country, which, it seems, was ordered to be forgotten due to its deafening failure. And who is the author of this reform, remember? ...

        While there is no confirmation anywhere, and the source cannot be called serious ...
        But if the truth is good. The junta must be afraid ...

      Salaries are shown to ministries, and in the regions the federals have salaries that are often below average. While the real work is being done on the ground. They are cutting back not in the ministries, but in the territories. The highest salary in the government apparatus - i.e. those who serve Medvedev himself and various Dvorkovichs. But on the ground to cut people for long, only who will work?

      The idea can be a good one and it is being implemented very badly, I, as a former official of the federal customs service, do not know by hearsay. In the Far East, with an allowance, the chief inspector receives a little more than 40000 rubles, and the rest are even less for the most part, and the chief specialists who are unable to defend their staff are reducing the specialists in the departments, these are mainly IT departments, logistics, etc. d. departments that provide work for those who work directly with citizens. And from my own experience I will tell you, from 2006 to 2013 the volume of paperwork has increased significantly. We did not work, we only reported. Every year we formed a plan for the budget for three years in advance, Mr. Ahren asked. The reduction, in my opinion, will not lead to anything, it’s just that even more work will be done on ordinary officials, and then the people will simply run away from there, as I did at the first opportunity that turned up. Those who work in government agencies will understand me, it DAMAGED.

      The idea is good, but its implementation is strange - reduce it by 10%. An amazing approach, some kind of structureless, but purely numerical. But in this case, it is better to immediately reduce 50%. Better yet, 90%! And how do you understand the command given to the ministries to work out whom to reduce? Yes, you rulers themselves must work out everything and lower the new structure from above to all government departments! The numerical approach will not have any effect on the management of the state, but most likely will worsen such management.

      by optimal reduction in the number of employees of the state apparatus.

      Judging by the "order" - the optimality ends with 10% of the population. Offer - 10% of the budget for the category of employees with a salary of more than 75 "pieces".
      But to whom to entrust this good deed? what

      Medvedev is going to "cut" the state apparatus by 10%
      If he himself got into these 10%, then he wouldn’t have a price- Yes !

      That's for sure. He recalled for a long time, but could not recall at least one proposal he had put forward that would be of benefit. Or zilch ... or harm ...

      As we have said, they will reduce it by 10%, and increase it by 110%. In general, the government needs to be reduced by 90% and there will be more benefits.
