Expertise Issues of the Decision-Making Process in the State Regulation

2017. No. 4. P. 158–172 [issue contents]
Complete and reliable information is the most important condition for the adoption of competent management decisions and a condition for the effectiveness of public management. But often actual information can be provided only by specialized organizations, experts with special knowledge and necessary qualifications. The involvement of experts and expert organizations generates a set of issues related to their qualifications, a degree of reliability of the examinations results, etc. This article describes the reasons and cases in which external experts should be involved in the decision-making process in the field of state regulation. In the course of the analysis, practice of interaction between state structures and the expert community in the regulatory activities of the state was studied and basic criteria for the need for and adequacy of involving experts in regulatory activities of the state were outlined. Also various scenarios for regulating activities depending on the characteristics of the regulatory functions, some key trends and problems of interaction were determined and described. It turned out that the dialogue between public structures and the expert community is complicated by high costs of contracting and a signifi cant risk of opportunistic behavior of each side. As a result, an expedient decision seems to increase the responsibility of each of the parties for the quality of state decisions taken within the regulatory framework and to ensure wide involvement of representatives of civil society in the development of state regulatory policies.
