Having adopted the Constitution in 1993 and declared itself a social state, the Russian Federation assumed the duty not to exert power over its citizens, but to provide them with services. However, the provision of services has become a new, previously uncharacteristic area of activity of the state apparatus. Given this, the issue of creating a qualitatively new system of public administration in Russia was of particular relevance. Since the early 2000s. its decision is directly related to the «administrative reform», in which, among other things, the term «public service» was introduced into domestic legal circulation. Currently, the issue of improving the efficiency of public services is still on the agenda, because in the sphere of realization of citizens and organizations of their right to receive public services remains unresolved a number of problems, the main of which is the lack of a full legislative framework governing the institution of public services. The author, having carried out a comparative legal analysis of the administrative legislation of the Russian Federation with the legislation of the United States, which is considered more progressive in this area, attempts to identify the most significant advantages and disadvantages of the current domestic legal framework in the provision of public services. Taking into account the findings, the author formulates proposals aimed at improving the efficiency of management decisions in the provision of public services.
