The RAEX rating agency and the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation presented the results of a study of the work of public councils under the federal executive authorities (FEB). Based on this data, ratings and under-ratings were compiled, showing how effective a particular advice was. For the analysis, open sources of information were used: regulatory documents, official pages of public councils on the Internet, SCAN-Interfax data, as well as data from an expert survey of members of the RF OP and public councils. All evaluation criteria were combined into 8 evaluation factors: impact on the activities of departments; implementation of the function of public control; information openness; publicity; interaction with stakeholders; organizational aspects of the activities of councils under federal executive authorities; interaction with the RF OP; data from a special expert survey. Separate sub-estimates were compiled for each area. In the main assessment, all public councils are divided into five groups: group A – leaders; Group I – advanced; Group C – average level; Group D – basic level; Group E – entry level (maximum development potential). The “leaders” were councils under ten federal executive authorities: the Ministry of Construction, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Labor, Rosreestr, Roszdravnadzor, Rosobrnadzor, Rostransnadzor, Rosleskhoz.
