In the program "Postscript" was shown the story about the state of roads in one subject of the Russian Federation. This plot is used only as an example, so it doesn’t matter where it happens, neither are specific figures.
The plot is normal, positive, that the roads are bad now, but the authorities are doing something to remedy the situation.
Everything is good, but some details make the BRAINS INCLUDE, but then the picture doesn’t look so rosy.
As stated in the plot and as often happens, “after the winter the snow melted and the road went down with the snow”. Of course, not completely "gone", but the quality has deteriorated sharply. If this is so, then three options are possible: a road builder’s marriage took place; the road was poorly maintained; Existing norms and rules for the construction and operation of roads do not ensure their quality and normal service life.
It is well known that every achievement, including with a minus sign, must have its own name and surname, otherwise it will be an endless process. However, the story did not say that specialists and managers who had not properly performed their duties were identified, nothing was said about who had accepted this poor work (including low-quality road maintenance works). It is not said about whether the breeders were suspended from work, what responsibility were the breeders involved in? The question was not raised about the need to revise the rules and standards of construction (maybe the soil should be tamped more carefully, and the quality of roads will improve?). Moreover, the absence of specific “heroes” and taken measures is not a flaw in this plot, but a general rule (see other plots).
These are not idle questions. If bridal makers are not suspended and not brought to justice, then poor-quality roads will continue to be recreated, no matter how much money is allocated for their repair and maintenance. Well, if the adoption of technical amendments is necessary, then the issue of quality is not at all.
Some hitch in the builder’s assertion of a five-year warranty period, which took place in the plot, although it could be a mere coincidence, is very characteristic. There is no real responsibility for the quality of construction and repair. Everyone understands that the cost of eliminating the consequences of poor-quality work is so great that it is cheaper to close the organization that performed the work, to write off all sins and to open a new one, even taking into account the cost of obtaining permission to carry out construction work.
Under these conditions, it would seem necessary to solve organizational and technical issues, and then proceed to the costly repair of roads. However, the repair is in full swing, moreover, additional funds have been allocated that should almost double the volume of repaired roads, and the Russian government will allocate a billion rubles for the additional volume of road repairs throughout the country.
Additional budget allocations, if by all the rules, require an additional tender to determine the contractor organization that will examine the roads and develop a repair project, a competition for repair work among organizations that have the appropriate capacity and resources, and design and repair work itself. And on most of the territory of Russia in September, active road works should be stopped due to weather conditions, but a report should be submitted on the funds allocated by December 25.
It is difficult to assume that it will be possible to carry out everything in full and proper quality. Moreover, either not the best organizations will attract to the works (the best of those equipped are already loaded with the works that were planned earlier), or, most likely, these will be works performed with the overload of resources. So, again, there will be no surveys of the roads, there will be no repair project, and the builders "by eye" will somehow perform the ritual of "patching holes, creating the appearance of quality repairs." The situation in which, as the customer, who, of course, understands the shortcomings of this state of affairs, and the builders, who also understand everything, creates the possibility, to put it mildly, of inefficient use of budget funds, if not their theft. The result will be: lack of quality roads, lack of funds for quality repairs and lack of blame.
It’s impossible to say that it’s like the proverb: “Force a fool to pray to God, he will break through”, it’s impossible, there’s too many fools in the government of the Russian Federation, in the leadership of the Federation, and in public organizations that allegedly control the process, and in government regulatory organizations. In addition, the availability of correct and timely reports on the use of budgetary funds, which certainly will be, excludes the possibility of explaining everything by stupidity.
Based on the principle of "switching on the brain" and certain experience, we have to assume that the trouble in this case is lack of control, i.e. lack of control by really interested persons. If, as provided for in the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the people could directly ask the responsible persons for the quality of the roads and the means used, then 99% of all problems would disappear as soon as possible.
Imagine a situation: the official knows that the issue of his negligent discharge of duties and inefficient spending will be dealt with only on the basis of a statement by a simple driver, whose car has fallen into an over-standard hole on a repaired road, and the jury will deal with the same drivers, and not “ all understanding "judge. It is impossible to allow poor-quality repair!
Thus, we have to assume that the trouble of Russia, apart from fools, is the lack of real demand for the fulfillment of duties, i.e. irresponsibility.
