Subject. This article discusses the issues of development of the budget system of Russia and the cooperation between public authorities and the business community.
Objectives. The article aims to analyze expert assessments of the quality of the institutional environment of public-private partnership in the Sverdlovsk Oblast.
Methods. For the study, we used a statistical analysis.
Results. The article finds that the experts highly appreciated the quality of information and consulting activities in the framework of the development of the public-private partnership system in the Sverdlovsk Oblast, and also notes the low quality of interdepartmental cooperation in the process of development and implementation of projects.
