Abstract: The study of the activities of regional authorities to preserve the level and quality of life of the population in the context of the COVID-19 pan­demic acquires scientific value due to the special conditions in which the re­gional community and the regional political institutions were placed.

The article analyzes the impact of the conditions of the COVID-19 pandem­ic on the activities of the institutions of the regional political system to pre­serve the level and quality of life of the population within a particular sub­ject of the Russian Federation – the Trans-Baikal Territory. As the main re­search method, a dichotomous assessment of the data obtained as a result of an expert survey in the fall of 2021 is used. The experts were the heads and specialists of the public authorities of the region and local authorities.

The contribution of the institutions of the regional political system to the preservation of the level and quality of life of the population is considered through the categories of “social efficiency” and “level of administration”. As a result of the study, we defined the pandemic has a negative impact on the functioning of the institutions of the regional political system in the field of maintaining the level and quality of life of the population. The revealed trends do not allow us to consider the regional political system sufficiently effective and capable of providing the basic conditions for the sustainable development of the region.
