It was proved in the article that it is reasonable to base the relations between the central and territorial public authorities on a contractual basis, at that two types of contracts are distinguished: "transactional" contracts and "relational" contracts. For "transactional" contracts, the state clearly and completely determines the rights and obligations of both parties in advance. On the contrary, "relational" contracts simply develop a framework of interaction process. "Transactional contracts are very secure, but can be difficult to design, because every unforeseen future must be decided in advance. "Relational" contracts are less secure because mutual obligations are incomplete and can be interpreted differently post factum. However, they are more flexible and therefore better suited to complex and evolving relationships. In addition, they allow for the accumulation of knowledge and experience, because their flexibility allows for the experimentation and implementation of non-standard solutions.
