Its goal is to increase labor productivity and meliorate the quality of services by improving the organizational culture of RusAccreditation team.

When discussing the improvement of public administration processes, Alexey Khersontsev urged the participants not to forget that these processes are implemented by workforce. At the early stage, it was important to take into account public administration's general values, as well as the specific functions and tasks of RusAccreditation. Thereupon, the mission of RusAccreditation was defined. Then, the values were determined: trust, competence, team, adaptability. Plans of the Federal Service for Accreditation include gradual introduction of rules of conduct for employees developed in accordance with these values.
