Accounts Chamber: social support program in the Far Eastern Federal District is ineffective

Accounts Chamber: social support program in the Far Eastern Federal District is ineffective

The implementation of the state program "Social support for citizens" could not significantly affect the growth of well-being and the quality of social services for residents of the Far East and Irkutsk region. This was reported by the Accounts Chamber of Russia.

According to the auditor of the Accounts Chamber Sergey Shtogrin, the share of the population with incomes below the subsistence minimum in most regions of the Far Eastern Federal District is higher than the average in Russia. The indicator is significantly exceeded in Transbaikalia, Yakutia and the Jewish Autonomous Region. Even Far Eastern allowances and coefficients do not help.

According to the results of a joint audit of the Accounts Chamber, the Federal Treasury and the regional audit chambers, it became clear that the main reason lies in the state program itself. According to the Accounts Chamber, it has not been fully worked out - in the sections on the accelerated development of the Far East there are no specially designed social support measures for the population. 

According to the press service of the department, the costs of social support for residents of the Far Eastern Federal District and the Irkutsk region are growing, it goes several times more from regional budgets than from the federal one. 

At the same time, the Accounts Chamber revealed discrepancies in statistical data for some subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District. Regional authorities give one number, Rosstat - another. The department also found violations when using subsidies for the provision of housing for orphans. So, the regions paid for work that did not meet the conditions of state contracts and building codes. In homes for orphans, sometimes there were no internal doors, wall insulators, electricity and water heaters.
