The modern administrative system of the Russian Federation is characterized by an increasing number of regulatory aspects. This property is especially widespread in the sphere of science and education. According to stakeholders, it often leads to excessive formalization and bureaucratization of processes in the work of scientific and educational organizations. Experts identify different reasons for the growth of bureaucratization: the complexity of interaction, the shortcomings of organizational and business processes, the problems of structure and distribution of responsibilities, insufficient competence of specialists, etc. However, the issues of stakeholders communication, so-called the “bureaucratic language” that is expressed in different approaches to the creation of regulatory and regulatory documents, are not fully revealed. The article shows how the language of modern regulatory influences the complexity of bureaucratic processes, describes a number of reasons that determine these features, and also makes the proposals, how to reduce their negative impact.
