The article deals with proper using such terms as "system", "nonsystem", "intersystem" as regards the state legal institutionsinconditions of transition from one social system to another. The application of the system theory instudying the state and law for a transitional period is conditioned by the complicated processes taking place in state legal superstructure in the time of changing social systems. Taking into consideration these categories it is possible to comprehend thepeculiarities of coexistence of mutually exclusive state institutions (e.g. the institutions of Presidency and the Supreme Soviet in the USSR in the late eighties and in the early nineties of the XXth century) as well as the reasons of disparity between the republican legislation and the all-union one. The article is devoted to some aspects of constitutional reform of public administration system in the USSR in the late 80's-early 90's of the 20th century.The legal analysis of the constitutional reforms of 1988-1990 is taken as the basis.Particular attention is paid to the qualitative change of executive, legislative, judicial and constitutional organs of state power. It is concluded that the introduction of the institution of the President, the Congress of people's deputies, as well as changing the status of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR and the Constitutional Review Committee have contributed to the destruction of the soviet form of Government and a unified system of public administration.
We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
