Super IT-regulator and federal CIO to emerge in Russia?

The shifts in the government structure, which are to follow the March elections, might radically change the ICT management structure. CNews has received some documents at its disposal, which present one of the possible development options. The question is of establishing the so called RF Committee on public administration.According to the concept developed by the government the new body will unite Rosfinmonitoring (Russia’s Federal Service for Fiscal Monitoring), Rosstat (the Federal State Statistics Service), FAIT (the Federal Agency for Information Technologies), Spetssvayz FSO (Special communication and information service at the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation), profile FSUE (Federal State Unitary Enterprises) and Research Institutes. According to the document, a new position of a Vice-Premier is planned to be introduced, whose working title is meanwhile ‘all-Russian CIO’. If the proposal is approved, then the Chief IT-Director will be able to tightly regulate the government informatization.
