The Council of People's Commissars of Soviet Russia established a state planning commission, Gosplan, in 1921. The commission instituted and operated a unified, planned program for the Soviet economy that in turn, coordinated the plans and outlooks of various state-run economic departments. Gosplan had a central committee that handled the planned economy as well as the economic objectives of the Communist Party and Soviet Government. Every five years, the government developed plans for operation and these are referred to as the Five-Year Plans. Gosplan also had its own publishing department. Over the years, this was referred to as: Gosplan State Publishing House (1938-1939); Gosplan State Publishing House of Planning and Accounting-Statistical Literature (1939-1946); State Planning Publishing House (1946-1948) and the State Publishing House of Economic, Planning and Accounting-Statistical Literature (1948---1951).
