Subject The article focuses on organizational, legislative and practical aspects of governmental programs for managing Moscow City expenditures.
Objectives The study determines how governmental programs of Moscow City should be improved as a means analyzing and evaluating what impedes a growth in the efficiency, transparency and accountability of Moscow City spending. The development strategy for Moscow City programs is intended to increase the efficiency of regional spending.
Methods Research is based on statistical, economic-mathematical methods, methods of analysis, comparison.
Results I analyzed the regional regulatory framework and the usage of governmental programs of Moscow City. I found difficulties and advised how the improvement of governmental programs should be managed, including a common approach to evaluating the efficiency of the tool.
Conclusions and Relevance As there is no strategic planning program at the regional level, governmental programs of Moscow City do not evolve. Operating without a common approach to evaluating their efficiency, entities just formally comply with target indicators and revise them all the time. To enhance budgetary spending and refine governmental programs of Moscow City, I suggest adopting a set of strategic planning documents, adhere to management by objectives, develop a strategic development portal, implement a common technique for evaluating the efficiency (in line with public sentiment) and a new relationship map of strategic planning components.
