Research of Formation and Use of the Municipal Budget Ufa

Introduction. In the current crisis conditions decline in growth receipt of incomes to local budgets is felt stronger in comparison with the previous year. In relation to this fact it is necessary to mobilise all reserves for local budget extension. Local budgets are one of Russian consolidated budget elements. Nowadays in Russian Federation the role of local government authorities is increasing in economic and cultural construction. They acquired significant rights in the management area of economic, social and cultural construction on a catchment area. For assigned obligations completion the resources are needed, in particular, by way of different inpayment to municipal organisations budgets. Therefore, this research including structural characteristics of Ufa budget analysis, determination of reserves for municipal budget extension increase and extraction of budget outcomes priority directions, is particularly topical. Results of research. Based on economics and statistics methods budget incomes and outcomes of Ufa for the period of 2007–2013 were analysed. The analysis carried out shows that the central problem is the problem of the municipal budget extension, especially in terms of tax and non-tax proceeding. The insufficient social orientation of the municipal budget is concluded. In particular, from 2009, a significant decrease in public health service outcomes was observed, by 15% in average annually. In spite of the fact that Ufa is in the list of cities with high level of environment pollution, outcomes on ecology are insufficient, being an extremely negative factor. Conclusions. In the conclusion, the Ufa budget optimization suggestions were formulated. Disadvantages of change-over to programming method of budgeting were emphasized, a subjectiveness of budget outcomes priority directions was determined. The closed character of information on budget outcomes is also one of the central problems, that makes an estimation of budget outcomes effectiveness more difficult.

Cognitive Modeling the Impact of a Regional System of Higher Education in the Innovative Development of the Region

Introduction. To find the most effective management tools for interaction of regional higher education and regional innovation system to analyze their mutual influence through cognitive analysis. Theoretical analysis. To assess the role of regional institutions of higher education in regional development in the foreign studies used different models to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the contribution of universities to social and economic innovative development of the region. Empirical analysis. It is obvious that the education system and innovation system linked at the regional level. To construct the initial cognitive map, a model that reflects the current state of the education system and the regional innovation system and their influence on the innovative development of the region, used indicators of educational activities, research and innovation, human resource development, international activities, infrastructure, employment of university graduates, financial indicators. Results. Tools cognitive modeling can simulate the effects of decisions made on the interaction of all the actors of the regional innovation system: government, science and business at the regional level, and lays the foundation for the efficient use of the capacity of higher education institutions in promoting opportunities to promote regional development.

Innovation in Corporate Governance in Russia

Introduction. The dynamism of corporate governance generated by internal factors of development corporations, such as the desire to attract investors, to improve its ranking in the eyes of the public, to increase the effectiveness of personnel management of the corporation. External factors are the dynamics of the corporate institutional framework of corporate governance, which can include legislation on aspects of corporate governance in Russian companies, as well as guidance documents, which include the Code of Corporate Governance. As part of the institutional framework have been many changes,
which require analysis and systematization. Theoretical analysis. Based on analysis of the amendments to the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, a number of corporate laws and the Corporate Governance Code implemented systematization of the latest innovations in the institutional framework of corporate governance.

The author identifies the official emergence of the term «corporation» and «corporate relations», particularly public and non-public companies, considering innovations in relation to therights and responsibilities of shareholders, as well as the functions of members of the Board of Directors. Results. Analysis of innovation in the institutional framework of corporate governance, as well as analysis of the new Corporate Governance Code has revealed the role of these innovations in the formation of an effective system of corporate governance in Russian companies, as well as in resolving corporate conflicts. Key words: corporate governance, public joint stock company, rights of shareholders, Board of Directors, Corporate Governance Code.

Statistical Analysis of the Cost of Quality in the Organization

Introduction. Statistical analysis of the cost of quality is one of the most important elements of cost management in the organization, as well as necessary in the construction of a quality system in accordance with ISO 9000 quality costs include all costs associated with quality,
and are divided into two general group – costs caused by inconsistencies inconsistencies, and the costs of prevention and detection of inconsistencies. Theoretical analysis. In the statistical literature is often used index method to identify individual factors on the overall result. In the statistical literature under the subindex refers to the average index. With the subindexes can estimate the extent to which the overall index due to the influence of the dynamics of costs for each cost element. The main feature of subindex analysis is that it allows you to reconcile the analysis of changes in the dynamics of individual indicators and the entire population as a whole, as well as its structural changes. Results of study. Analysis of quality costs dynamics revealed that the increase in costs on the quality of the organization influenced primarily warning costs. The greatest impact on cost increases in the dynamics of the quality of the Saratov storage tank construction works in 2014 had four components: the cost of audits ( internal and external) quality management system, to carry out production design work training in the field of quality; costs of organizing the input control. This confirms the existing policy of the organization, which is aimed primarily at compliance with international and Russian standards, as well as to prevent the marriage.
