In August 2009, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has instructed the Ministry of Communications to develop the project «Electronic Government» for 2011-2015 by November 1 last year. Ministry asked to reschedule due to the fact that they were busy with developing a plan of building an information society. In February 2010, the Presidium of the Council for the Information Society recognized the draft concept of electronic government unsatisfactory and sent it back for revision.
The main problem of document is that its format was not determined. «There is no clear definition of what system project is and how it should look like: concept, terms of reference or something else, exactly what questions should refer to the proposed list of measures: infrastructure solutions, changes in law, architecture, e-government, etc.» — said Yuri Khokhlov (Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Institute of the Information Society). Yuri Khokhlov believes that it is necessary «to restart the whole project.» That is, to form a clear requirements for the system project, its structure and content and write it again.
