The paper examines the problem of improving the efficiency of public administration in Russia. The urgency of raising the effectiveness of modern public administration in Russia is caused by a number of reasons. First, the relevance of the problem under consideration is determined by the worldwide trend of increasing the role of the state in the modern era. Secondly, inefficiency of the existing model of public administration: the use of outdated principles, methods and technologies of governance in the system of public authorities. Thirdly, there is no correspondence of state management to internal and external challenges. Fourth, the problem of the public administration effectiveness in Russia is exacerbated by the use of sanctions measures against the country. Fifth, assessment of management efficiency allows societyy to determine the quality of the activities of state institutions and the state apparatus to evaluate the results of its own activities. The purpose of the study is to consider the problem of improving the efficiency of public administration in Russia. Achieving this goal requires revealing the main problems and tasks for improving and reforming the state administration of Russia. As a methodological base of the research, the work includes the following approaches and methods: systemic and structural-functional approaches, sociological, dialectical and comparative methods, as well as analysis of conditions and factors affecting public administration in modern Russia. As a result of the research, we came to the following conclusions:

1. An inefficient public administration model contributes to stagnation and a permanent crisis in the development of society and the state.

2. The ineffectiveness of public administration does not contribute to the growth of Russia's competitiveness in the world.

3. The competitiveness of Russian society and, first of all, the economy of the country is impossible without a corresponding competitive state policy. Contemporary competition policy in Russia is being reduced mainly to antitrust policy, the competition development strategy does not receive due attention from the authorities.

4. A modern effective model of public administration should rely not only on basic values and management principles, but also take into account the realities of the information society that is emerging in Russia, and the formation of a knowledge society.

5.Overcoming the stagnation and social withdrawal of the administrative apparatus by involving the public in the work of state administration bodies. The relationship between the Russian state and civil society built on a hierarchical principle needs to be transformed into a networked relationship with conversion from trusteeship to partnerships.
