Introduction: the article considers introduction into the system of the state power organization of such an element as delegation of particular public authorities to the subjects of private law. Purpose: to analyze the relations emerging when subjects of private law exercise functions and powers characteristic of governmental bodies; to identify the forms of delegation and gaps emerging in the system of public administration; to perform analysis of each form of delegating authoritative powers. Methods: the research is based on analysis of statutory regulation, technical and comparative law methods. Results: the identified forms of delegating state powers of authority accepted in the Russian Federation are as follows: co-regulation, self-regulation and quasi-regulation; establishment of an organization with a special status combining the features of a state body and those of a non-profit organization but having the right to engage in business activities; management of a territory by a private law organization; outsourcing of the functions of governmental bodies. It has been revealed that the RF Constitution does not provide for (but also does not prohibit) delegating powers of authority to non-governmental organizations. Permissibility of such delegation is based on the broad interpretation of the RF Constitution general provisions given in some rulings of the RF Constitutional Court. Conclusions: modern ideology of libertarianism, which proves inefficiency of the government in performing its public functions, has a considerable influence on the content of the administrative reform. One of the reform lines is the government’s renunciation of excessive authorities and their delegation to the third sector – different non-governmental organizations. Lack of unified rules of such delegation in the Russian Federation entails abuses, as well as the government’s refusal to control the efficiency of performing public functions.
