You have visited the Web-site of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation. I appreciate your interest to the supreme body of state financial control of Russia.
In the last decade of the 20-th century the transition of the Russian economy to the market orientation has required introduction of qualitative changes into the system of state financial control. These changes are reflected in the Constitution of the Russian Federation which has envisaged the establishment of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation with the following main objectives to be pursued by it:
- Control over timely and full execution of the federal budget and federal extra-budgetary funds
- Verification of effectiveness and expediency of disbursement of state funds and use of the federal property
- Expertise of drat federal laws which can have different degree of influence on the formation and execution of the federal budget.
In other words, the destiny of those public funds, resources and federal property which compose the wealth of the nation are subject to control by the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation.
I do believe that the Web-site of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation will be useful first of all for those who are working in the area of financial control, budget, taxes and monetary-credit policy. I have no doubt that the information located on our site will be interesting and useful for wider audience as well - for those people who are concerned about the destiny of the national financial and material resources and about the success of economic reforms in Russia.
I am sure that our information will contribute to solving existing economic problems and eradication of breaches and abuses in the financial sphere.
