We need to combine a number of functions so that there are fewer of them and fewer such dialogues. In this way, I am sure we will reduce the number of government functions and points that need to be involved. As a result, according to our estimates, 30% of officials could be laid off thanks to digitalization based on information system development. — Alexey Kudrin, Chairman, Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation .
If we can provide standard services, simple services, with legally relevant data on the basis of which decisions are made, we will be able to cease the huge expenditure of resources on people moving paper around and, among other things, making decisions. — Savva Shipov, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
The management system must become much simpler, it must become flexible, it must become efficient, and it must be digitalized. The word ‘digital’ is of utmost importance; everything within the government must be digitalized. [...] If the data is in different systems, in different departments, then the synergy effect will not be reached. The system must be unified and there must be a single data stream so that there is unified access for quick decision-making based on the existing data stream. Someone must be the architect of this platform. And the financing system must go through the same hands. It was repeated many times today that we need radical reforms, and we need to move forward very quickly. — Herman Gref, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Executive Board, Sberbank.
It is important that all the teams and all the people who work on the project share a single management environment that would allow them to quickly exchange information on the best practices so that if something works for someone else, everyone would be able to know about it. — Evgeniy Ditrikh, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation.
