The article is devoted to the analysis of the practice of applying in Russia the main method of implementing state policy - state programs. The relevance of the study of this method is predetermined by regular modifications of the mechanisms for the development, implementation and evaluation of programs, the next of which occurred in accordance with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of May 26, 2021 No. 786 “On the management system for state programs of the Russian Federation”. In order to achieve the strategic goals of Russia’s development, since 2017, a mechanism for transferring programs to the principles of project management has been piloted, which literally meant embedding federal and departmental projects into the structure of programs. The experimental regime has ended, since January 1, 2022, all state programs are being implemented according to the new rules. The purpose of the study is to analyze innovations in the principles and mechanisms of working with government programs and to identify additional measures to improve the effectiveness of programs. In the logic of the next stage of the reform of state programs, the article describes the new rules for the development of documents on state programs, the formation of a functional model for program management, and the new structure of the list of programs. In general, positively evaluating the reformatting of the program method, the author raises the question of the completeness of solving the problems of program effectiveness through these innovations. Based on the analysis of expert opinions, official reports of the Accounts Chamber of Russia on evaluating the effectiveness of state programs, the author identifies additional reasons for their low efficiency, including: the formal nature of control and monitoring; non-transparency of processes at the stage of implementation (implementation of measures); the formal nature of program effectiveness evaluation; inconsistency of actions of different levels of management and participants in the implementation phase. In conclusion, the author formulates proposals on measures that help minimize the impact of these factors.
