Russian Federation (The Call for Innovative and Open Government: An Overview of Country Initiatives)

The reduction in budget revenue during the global financial crisis and subsequent stabilisation of the economy has led to cuts in expenditure for managing the federal provision of public services, while also reducing the number of federal government employees. According to the Budgetary Address of the President of the Russian Federation Policy for 2011-13, by 2013 the number of government employees will be reduced by 20%. At the same time, new technologies will continue to be introduced that allow better services to be rendered at lower cost; these will include "one-stop-shop" delivery of state and municipal services, and e-services.
