Currently, evaluation of effectiveness in public administration is an accepted practice. Meanwhile, the results of activities of state organizations are often difficult to assess, especially quantitatively. Result-based management that is wide-spread in the Russian Federation has both positive and negative consequences for the managed systems. In the long term very often the negative effects become rather stable and displace the positive result. Therefore, when designing evaluation systems for the efficiency of public administration it is important to focus on the principles that can minimize the possible confounding effects. Introducing the efficiency evaluation
systems, an organization has to provide an opportunity to implement the principles of interaction, diversity and dynamism which allow to make the system more transparent and rational.
