M. Buryk <p><em>In modern conditions, the implementation of mechanisms for state management of transport infrastructure is not economically and efficiently enough, which manifests itself in an increased level of financial and labor costs for the construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure, only partial achievement of the goals set by the authorities and insufficient solutions to the problems of development of transport infrastructure, manifest from - for increased wear and tear, congestion, accidents, and underestimated levels of exploitation and miscibility of bridge and road infrastructure. The article is devoted to the study of topical issues of improving the mechanisms of public administration in the field of road facilities. Positive trends in the development of the industry have been identified as part of the implementation of the National Program for the Restoration of Bridges 2020-2025 and the Large Construction Project. It has been established that for the further improvement of the transport industry, it is necessary to delegate expanded management tools to local authorities, streamline, adapt the regulatory framework with EU legislation, promote the development of public-private partnerships, ensure extended independent expert and public control of the quality of road works, stimulate well-coordinated interaction between figurants in the sphere of roads, providing expert monitoring of the condition of roads. Further research can concern a comprehensive analysis of innovations in the niche of the road sector with the analysis of statistical data and dynamics of qualitative indicators of development.</em></p> <p><em><strong>Keywords:</strong> public administration, transport infrastructure, construction of bridges, road building, Ukravtodor.</em></p> 2020-07-10T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## ENSURING SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT BASED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF STATE POLICY IN THE FIELD OF NATURE MANAGEMENT 2021-01-17T13:35:37+02:00 Irina Dragan <p><em>At all levels of state regulation there is a need to transform the organizational structure of state policy of natural resources management through the introduction of a modern system of territorial natural economic entities with changes in relevant functions, mechanisms and powers to increase environmental and economic effect in various spheres of economic activity.</em></p> <p><em>The conceptual and categorical field of the theory of formation of the spatial system of natural resources management is developed due to the author's interpretation of the concept: "principles of formation of the innovative model of natural resources management".

It is emphasized that the development of tourism contributes to the capacity of communities through the efficient use of resources, the formation of common interests, providing opportunities for decent work, productive employment, increasing the competitiveness of the region. It is noted that for many local communities, which due to the difficult socio-economic conditions of existence, lack of experience and lack of specialists most need the development of alternative activities, the introduction of tourism is an extremely difficult task. Therefore, the implementation of reforms in the field of tourism depends on the interaction of public administration bodies at the regional and local levels, the coherence of regional and local programs in the field of tourism, the quality of project implementation, the level of qualification of public servants.</em></p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong><em>public administration, tourism sphere, local self-government bodies, regional development, development of territorial communities</em></p> 2020-07-17T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## INNOVATIVE POLICY OF THE STATE TO IMPROVE THE SYSTEM OF INCENTIVES FOR THE WORK OF LECTURERS IN THE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION OF UKRAINE 2021-02-13T23:54:11+02:00 Larysa Hren <p>Ensuring the functioning and development of the education sector, its self-regulation at the national, regional and local levels requires state intervention through the implementation of an appropriate innovative educational policy; it has been proved that the issue of finding effective tools for motivating scientific and pedagogical personnel to activate and improve scientific pedagogical activity requires an innovative nature of state policy, and a rational personnel policy in a higher education institution will positively affect an increase in the institution's prestige as an employer, and optimize the motivational system.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong><strong>:</strong>&nbsp;innovation policy of the state, directions of state policy, stimulation of work, motivation, institution of higher education, scientific and pedagogical workers.</p> 2020-08-21T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## IMPLEMENTATION OF E-GOVERNANCE IN THE PUBLIC SPACE OF UKRAINIAN CITIES 2021-02-14T19:51:22+02:00 Serhii Lukin <p><em>The article is devoted to the study of public space and the development of e-governance.

V. Karamyshev V. P. Prasol <p>During the years of Ukraine's independence, the healthcare system has not changed significantly. Until recently, the country had a fragmented network of medical institutions established in the Soviet Union years ago. This system did not cover the real customer needs and did not comply with international standards. Semashko system provided funding for medical institutions' existence, instead of funding for provided services. The lack of independence of budget medical institutions in decision-making, outdated infrastructure, low wages, and financing of the industry by a residual principle has caused a crisis in the healthcare industry. The article examines the primary world models of healthcare system organization, summarizes the approaches to the public administration of the domestic system and its financing in the healthcare reform context – outlines the main benefits and risks at the present stage. It proves the necessity and expediency of the non-state healthcare sector's development and clarifies the main mechanisms of state influence on its functioning; reveals a comprehensive approach to the public administration of this sector, which represents a set of management mechanisms: political, administrative, financial and economic, organizational, motivational, etc.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong>&nbsp;healthcare, health reform, non-state healthcare sector, public health governance mechanisms.</p> 2020-09-04T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## An innovative model of human resource management in the civil service of Ukraine 2021-02-15T20:34:16+02:00 Natalia Goncharuk Yuliia Pyrohova <p><strong>Abstra</strong><strong>c</strong><strong>t. </strong>The article is devoted to the research of the modern system of personnel management in state and local self-government bodies and creation of an innovative model of human resources management in the public service in Ukraine. It has been established that the modernization of personnel services into personnel management services started in the public authorities after the approval of the Strategy of the state personnel policy for 2012-2020, the Strategy of reforming the public administration of Ukraine for the period up to 2021 and the adoption of the new Law of Ukraine "On Civil Service" and continues today.&nbsp;Analysis of the existing personnel management system in state bodies and bodies of local self-government, its strengths and weaknesses has identified a number of systemic problems, and also, that today in Ukraine there is no single, legally regulated system of personnel management in the public service in general and of the personnel management system in the sphere of state service and service in bodies of local self-government in particular. A large number of legal documents governs this system and only fragmentary reflected in them. &nbsp;It is proposed, to solve these problems and improve the management of human resources in the public service in Ukraine, to move from personnel management to a qualitatively new level of service strategic management of human resources. It have been defined the main purpose, objectives and functions of the office of strategic human resource management in the public service, and have been developed a model of strategic human resource management in the public service and mechanisms for its implementation.</p> 2020-10-01T00:00:00+03:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## METHODOLOGY OF MONITORING AND EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF STATE POLICY IN THE SPHERE OF ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY IN UKRAINE 2021-02-24T16:45:23+02:00 Alina Pomaza-Ponomarenko Diana Medvedeva <p><em>The current environmental legislation of Ukraine is analyzed to determine the monitoring and assessment system of the state environmental policy.

After all, in the process of land reform in Ukraine there are many problems. For example, problems related to securing land ownership, which has led to the widespread use of land resources, especially agricultural land, without legal registration and, accordingly, the proper conduct of property rights transactions that arise in the economic activities of enterprises. The development of theoretical foundations for the formation of an information mechanism for land management of any country is the basis for the development of globalization, competitiveness and innovation, which have a decisive influence on the formation of a market economy and specifically each entity. The reason for this is the consideration of property rights in the field of land relations, which in Ukraine are complex.</em></p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong>&nbsp;<em>land relations, property relations,</em><em>&nbsp;</em><em>land ownership relations</em><em>,</em><em>&nbsp;management, information mechanism, public administration, state policy</em></p> 2020-11-05T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## State support of stability of the information field of the electoral process in Ukraine 2021-03-20T15:29:33+02:00 Andrii Antonov Alexandra Stoyan <p><em>The article is devoted to the research</em><em>&nbsp;</em><em>of the information field of the election process in Ukraine, to determine the features of the state ensuring the stability of the information field and to establish ways to develop the system of information support of the election process. The characteristic of the information field and sources of its formation is given. The information field of the election process is divided into informing voters (official information from the authorities) and campaigning. The formation of the information field of the election process is influenced by two main sources: public authorities; political parties, candidates. It was determined that the former provide information on legal provisions and official information on the election process, the latter partially inform voters by duplicating official information, as well as organize agitation, which may be informal and ideological in nature. There is a special role of mass media, which act as a mediator between the subjects of the election process and the repeater of the whole set of information. A threat to the stability of the information field is that mass media</em><em>&nbsp;</em><em>may be politically biased or disseminate inaccurate information in their own interests. It has been established that in recent years the political struggle has shifted to the Internet. This involves large social groups, especially young people - the vast majority of whom are users of modern technology. It is determined that such improvement of methods of information transfer and improvement of communication technologies leads to the fact that the possibility of manipulating the consciousness of a large number of citizens increases. It is concluded that the solution to a number of problems of state ensuring the stability of the electoral process in Ukraine should be, first, the regulation of the dissemination of information using the latest technologies; secondly, strengthening control over compliance with election legislation and real penalties for violating it; third, the development of a strategy for the formation of political and legal culture of citizens.

The purpose of the study identifies the features of modern suffrage. The world experience of the presence of qualifications in local elections is analyzed, in particular, the qualifications of active suffrage often include: settlement (living in a country, region for several months or years before the election); citizenship, age (standard - 18 years); denial of elections to the mentally ill, incapacitated and citizens who have committed a crime. </em><em>The qualifications of passive suffrage usually include: the availability of basic education (in developed countries for high positions – the availability of higher education); increased age requirement; increased official qualifications (on the basis of position, professional activity or spiritual rank).</em><em>&nbsp;</em><em>Aspects of suffrage realization at local elections in the Ukrainian legislation are characterized.</em><em>&nbsp;</em><em>Ways to improve the legal framework for the suffrage implementation in local elections, in particular, by introducing additional requirements in the Electoral Code of Ukraine to increase the competence of choice through the introduction of dynamic active suffrage, taking into account social status, professionalism, education, etc.; on the introduction of new educational and intellectual qualifications for candidates for elected positions; to improve the quality of institutions of public control over the procedure of local elections.</em><em>&nbsp;Despite the fact that the electoral legislation of Ukraine, including the latest changes, generally complies with basic international norms, a number of these provisions should be specified, which will significantly strengthen the foundations of democracy in the electoral system of the state.
