Current situation with Russian E-Gov
From the middle of last year Russia has an official portal, where citizens can get about 40 different kinds of public services — gosuslugi.ru
The Government plans to implement all the commitments to implement e-government in Russia in 2014. At the same time, as the head of the Ministry of Communications says, there is no guarantee that it will be implemented everywhere in the country by the deadline.
Minister Igor Shchegolev recalled that in this area there is the distribution of powers between the federal government, regional and municipal authorities. The last two government encourages the active introduction of electronic public services but vouch for the full, that they have enough time, according to Shchegoleva can be difficult.
According to the UN standard of Russia’s readiness for e-government leaves much to be desired. According to this indicator in 2010 Russia set a seat for 59 out of 180. Ahead of Russia was Kazakhstan (46 seat) and Ukraine (54 seat). One factor that takes into account when assessing the readiness of the UN country to introduce e-government is the level of computer literacy and access to information technology. Thus, according to the Public Opinion Foundation in late 2009 beginning 2010., Internet access and use of electronic services, there are only 37% of Russians. According to the Russian-American project of educational programs PH International, computer skills are not the order of 100 million citizens of Russia.
