Appendix No. 1

to the Presidential decree of the Republic of Uzbekistan of September 8, 2017 No. UP-5185

The concept of administrative reform in the Republic of Uzbekistan

The strategy of actions by five priority directions of development of the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2017 - 2021 (further - the Strategy of actions) the key purposes of upgrade of the state and society determines enhancement of the state and public construction, ensuring rule of law and strengthening of guarantees of protection of the rights and freedoms of citizens, development and liberalization of industries of economy and the social sphere, safety, interethnic concord and religious tolerance, implementation of the weighed, mutually advantageous and constructive foreign policy.

The most important condition of achievement of the specified purposes is accurate functioning of the system of public administration capable to provide full realization of the performed reforms adopted regulatory legal acts and state programs and also to reveal timely and to effectively solve problems of social and political and social and economic development.

At the same time, systems analysis of the course of strategy implementation of actions and results of dialogue with the population demonstrate preserving massive faults in the organization of activities of state bodies and executive bodies on the places (further - executive bodies) interfering full realization of reforms. In particular:

bases of the organization of activities of executive bodies do not provide the timely solution of the collected problems on the places reducing rates of development of the territories. Lack in some cases of accurate differentiation of legal status of executive bodies (the ministries, the state committees, the agencies, committees, the centers, inspections) does not allow to determine their specific place and role in the state apparatus;

declarative nature of the tasks assigned to separate executive bodies, insufficiency of organization-legal mechanisms of their realization, duplication of functions and redundancy of state regulation have an adverse effect on efficiency of implementable reforms. Accomplishment by executive bodies of functions unusual for them, and also availability of the considerable quasi-public sector (bodies of economic board, the state unitary enterprises) lead to excessive state regulation of industries of economy and the social sphere;

the operating system of coordination and control of activities of executive bodies does not provide timely identification and elimination of the system problems interfering execution of the made decisions. Availability of large number of the interdepartmental collegiate organs (the commissions, councils, working groups and others) given state powers of authority leads to substitution of tasks and functions of executive bodies, washing out of responsibility for the made decisions and achievement of specific results;

mechanisms of assessment of activities of executive bodies come down only to ascertaining of the facts and the current collection of statistical data which often do not reflect actual situation in places;

there are no accurate differentiation of spheres of responsibility of executive bodies and their heads, efficient mechanisms of interdepartmental and interdepartmental interaction of executive bodies, especially on places;

excessive centralization of the state functions and powers leads to decrease in role of executive bodies on places in forming of development programs of the territories and the solution of pressing problems of the population;

implementation level in management process of modern innovative planning methods and the organization of work, the advanced information and communication technologies does not allow to trace quickly the course and to provide effective implementation of the made decisions, and also is the reason of excessive bureaucratization and high costs of public administration;

combination of economic board of the state regulating and economic functions by bodies, the obsolete system of branch management which does not have sufficient flexibility and market focus, unreasonable provision of individual privileges, preferences and privileges constrain development of healthy competitive environment;

backwardness social and public-private partnership limits participation of non-state non-profit organizations and subjects of entrepreneurship in the solution of urgent social and economic problems and, as a result, does not provide decrease in budget costs;
