Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 138)


The paper provides a brief overview of the current system for assessing functional and operational effectiveness in the current Russian practice of result-orienting management. The main shortcomings are identified and the ways to eliminate them are proposed. The category of the life’s saving economic equivalent (EESL) is proposed, allowing to analyze the social & economic efficiency of state programs based on the benefit and cost framework. The comparison method estimated the EESL value for Russia. Experimental assessments of social & economic efficiency are provided.
