"We are working on a draft new Cabinet of Ministers Rules to improve the decision-making process," said Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Olexandr Saienko in an interview with The RBK-Ukraine.

According to the Minister, the current decision-making procedure requires updating. "Now, this process is as follows: the office develops the draft act and submits it for approval, in response it receives revised data and comments from other departments. Officials work with already developed legal act, and the discussion often takes place only between legal entities. We want to improve this mechanism," stressed Olexandr Saienko.

He also emphasized that the quality of a government decision depends greatly on this stage. Each initiative should be developed openly, undergo all policy analysis procedures, consultations with all stakeholders in one or another market. Then there should take place a political dialogue, and aftermath the stage of development of the normative legal act begins.

"I look forward to the adoption of the document in the first quarter of 2018. We want to prioritize the approval of political decisions, while to make the preparation of regulatory acts a more technological process, which will be carried out exceptionally in e-form, perhaps even within the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers or the Ministry of Justice. As I told earlier, the ministries are now coordinating with the concerned agencies the prepared project," the Minister said.

It should be mentioned, under the reform of public administration State Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers Volodymyr Bondarenko leads the process of development of new draft Rules of the Cabinet of Ministers. Among the approaches to the preparation of government decisions which are being introduced are as follows: project approach, impact forecasting, efficiency management, inclusion in the decision-making process.
