Arctic Yearbook 2015 - Page 48

48 Arctic Yearbook 2015 Given the redistribution of responsibilities among federal, regional, and municipal authorities, the maintenance of state control over a feasible choice of suppliers and price-formation has become much more difficult. Organizational and economic mechanisms of interaction and division of powers among federal, regional, and municipal authorities, and business entities participating in goods delivery, have not been regulated yet. As such, no system of organization for pre-scheduled goods delivery in Chukotka and Yakutia has been elaborated. The potential for improvement of the economic mechanisms of pre-scheduled fuels delivery, predominantly through the establishment of local production of petroleum products to replace fuel types delivered from other Russian regions, has been demonstrated. The survey and recommendations given in the article confirm the significance of the theme of the study. Acknowledgments Financial support for this study was provided by the Program of Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Project “Feasibility Study of Coal Mining in the Arctic Zone of North-Eastern Russia”. This article has greatly profited from comments by two anonymous reviewers. Notes 1. See http://demoscope.ru/weekly/ssp/rus89_reg1.php. 2.
