Analysis and evaluation of the achievement of strategic planning goals in the public sector




The article analyzes the system of state planning in Kazakhstan. The analysis and evaluation of
the achievement of goals and target indicators in the strategic documents of the central state and local
executive bodies is carried out. The analysis is based on studies of international organizations, reports
of state bodies on strategic plans and programs for the development of territories, analytical reports of
the Center for Research, Analysis and Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Accounts Committee of the
Republic of Kazakhstan. The standards and best practices of the Organization for Economic Cooperation
and Development (hereinafter – the OECD) used by the governments of developed countries in the
development of strategic documents and standards were considered. The main problem areas for the
development of strategic documents by the state bodies of the country are indicated. The article concludes
that the quality of strategic planning documents largely depends on the quality of predictive and
analytical work and on the methodological tools that are available to government agencies. The authors
also come to the conclusion that strategic documents should be focused on solving current problems of
society, they should clearly observe the principle of decomposition of goals, and when developing them,
alternative solutions to the problems that these documents are aimed at should be considered in order
to ensure the choice of the best and most effective solutions available to society.
