The Accounts Chamber spoke about the ineffective development of small towns

The auditors of the Accounts Chamber stated that the implementation of projects for the development of small towns in the Russian Federation was insufficiently efficient with large volumes of state support.

According to the statement of the control department, made following the results of the analysis, the socio-economic development of small towns “requires more attention.”

According to auditors, of the 240 projects approved in 2018–2019 and received a total of about 15 billion rubles from the budget, 166 projects have been implemented (which is 69.2%). At the same time, the expected effect from their implementation in full has not been achieved.

The Accounts Chamber cites poor control and imperfect regulation as the main reasons for the lack of efficiency. In particular, in the agreements that are concluded with the regions on the implementation of projects, measures of responsibility for violation of obligations are not spelled out.

In addition, the regions also cannot cope with co-financing projects from local and extrabudgetary sources. The total amount of attracted financing amounted to 48% of the declared one.
