Subject This article discusses the issues related to the implementation of municipal programs as tools to solve important problems of development of territories, and problems of deductions into the budget of businesses which are engaged in production in territories of several regions.
Objectives The article aims to study the areas of improving the functioning of organizational structures and their reform in order to ensure the implementation of municipal programs.
Methods For the study, we used the statistical and prediction-and-effect analyses of the accounting reports of OAO Tsentrgaz structures as a major business.
Results Based on the study of organizational structures of different type enterprises, the article presents developed algorithms for determining the effectiveness of their activities and reform models using the elements of budgeting and evaluation of the regional contribution.
Conclusions At a certain stage of the regions' development, big business structures have introduced the elements of comprehensiveness when solving various problems of investment, design and construction of facilities. At the same time, the structures of multilevel and multi-purpose subordination and reporting began to dramatically reduce their profitability, which led to the need for reform.
