The protokoly show that at the 34 meetings of Sovnarkom held in 1931 28 the numbers attending varied between 21 and 46. Voting members were supplemented by 'consultative' members with a right to speak, but not vote. The increase in the number of full members during the 1930s reflected the creation of new commissariats. There were 23 by the time of the implementation of the Stalin Constitution in 1938 (resulting in 29 full members of Sovnarkom). There was a further rapid growth to 43 commissariats by the outbreak of war in 1941.

This provided a central part of the system of control, often backed up by internal control (vnutrennyi or vnutrivedomstvennyi kontrol') agencies inside the commissariats. This system was supplemented by various other control mechanisms - party, government and popular. The activities of the commissariats were constrained through planning, financial and credit control exercised via Gosplan, NKFin and Gosbank. The economic commissariats possessed their own planning and financial sectors, which worked partly with and partly in opposition to Gosplan and NKFin as components of the complex of interlocking institutions.

The extent of that access depended on the commissariat and on the issues involved. Other party fora: the Central Committee, the party conferences and congresses provided a more limited opportunity to advance proposals and to defend the record of the department. The Politburo was closely concerned with the question of ensuring fulfilment of its directives and orders. 48 The commissariat's work was subject also to control and scrutiny by the party itself, through the party's own machinery. The party Secretariat and Orgburo had specialist sectors to supervise the work of the commissariats.
