Ministry of Sports spends budget subsidies unsatisfactorily – Accounts Chamber

The level of planning of the amount of subsidies by the Russian Ministry of Sports is unsatisfactory. For a number of projects, more than half of the allocated funds in 2015 were not used, according to the report of the Accounts Chamber of Russia, published on the official website of the department.

The Accounts Chamber presented an opinion on the execution of the federal budget by the Ministry of Sports in 2015. It follows from the conclusion that the revenues administered by the Ministry of Sports amounted to 1.1 billion rubles. This is more than the indicator of the approved budget allocations by 82.6 million rubles. at the expense of targeted deductions from the All-Russian state lotteries, the planned budgetary indicators for which were exceeded by 25% last year.

At the same time, in 2015, as in 2012-2014, the budgetary funds provided for the implementation of the joint project to involve socially unprotected segments of the population in regular physical education and sports were not fully implemented. “The annual failure to fulfill the planned costs in this area indicates a systemic problem in planning costs and preparing justifications for the economic feasibility of forming such a reserve,” the message says.

Accounts receivable from the federal budget as of January 1, 2016 amounted to 55.8 billion rubles. Compared to the state as of January 1 of last year, it increased by 16.7 billion rubles. The increase in accounts receivable is mainly due to advances issued on budgetary investments in capital construction projects – stadiums for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The balance of subsidies to legal entities that were not used as of January 1, 2015, provided by the Ministry of Sports in the reporting year, amounted to 671 million rubles, or 8% of the funds actually provided. “This indicates an insufficient level of planning on the part of the Ministry of Sports for the volume of subsidies provided,” the Accounts Chamber said in a statement.

Based on the results of the audit, the Accounts Chamber plans to send appeals to the Federation Council and the Federal Service for Labor and Employment.
