The article discusses the prospects for improving the effectiveness of the institution of disciplinary responsibility in the civil service system of the Russian Federation by improving disciplinary penalties. It is concluded that the effectiveness of disciplinary penalties is a kind of an indicator of the effectiveness of the institution of disciplinary responsibility in the public service system. The study found that the most serious problems in the practice of functioning of the state service of the Russian Federation are connected with the disciplinary actions of a moral nature, the impact of which largely depends on the personality of the offender. As a solution to this problem, it is possible to combine – if necessary - moral disciplinary penalties with some additional disciplinary measures that have a material nature or restrict the career growth of an official (reduction or deprivation of monthly monetary incentives; elimination of various benefits and compensations; deprivation of breastplate badges, etc.). Separately, it is necessary to regulate the issue of establishing restrictions on the possibility of entering the civil service of persons dismissed due to loss of confidence. To do this, it is necessary to introduce a new disciplinary penalty in the form of deprivation of the right to fill public service positions for a certain period, applied as an additional one. The introduction of these changes will increase the effectiveness of disciplinary measures against offenders.
