Применение ключевых показателей эффективности для ФАС России: анализ на основе статистики судебных решений

Outcomes of key performance indicators application for the assessment of public authority performance are ambiguous. Theory of incentive contracts as well as international experience highlight the difficulties and possible externalities of KPI setting for public authority. Motivation system often distorts the incentives of public authorities, and applied indicators do not correctly reflect the priorities of enforcement for the society. One specific example is the assessment of performance of the Russian competition authority. In the paper we analyze the peculiarities of formation of ratio of the infringement decisions coming into legal force to all the infringement decisions made by competition authorities applied as one of key performance indicators. Using the data of the database of judicial reviews of infringement decisions, we show that the assessment of FAS performance based on the share of infringement decisions coming into legal force, distorts the incentives of the authority substantially. It motivates competition authority for making the large number of infringement decisions with the low probability to reverse but the low positive impact on consumer surplus and total welfare.
