In this paper a new format of the procedures for determining the best solution is presented to solve multicriteria optimization problems in the supply chain. This format includes: 1) modifying parameters of the particular criteria, taking into account the attitude of decision maker (DM) to such indicators and the importance of the attitude of DM to criteria themselves (which is implemented using a comparison procedures developed for the analytic hierarchy process); 2) implementation of procedures for the selection on the basis of the traditional theory of selection criteria (which corresponds to the synthesis procedures, analytical hierarchy process method with the traditional theory of optimization procedures). Illustrations of the proposed approach to the modification of the selection procedures are given for the problem related to optimizing the locations of the warehouse and its form of ownership. It is shown that the presented approach to optimization solutions will expand the available arsenal of methods for selecting managers that will give an opportunity to improve the quality of decisions due to better adapt them to the preferences of the decision maker.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.

At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
