The SRSS coordinates and provides tailor-made technical support to EU countries, in cooperation with the relevant Commission services. The support is notably provided through the Structural Reform Support Programme (SRSP). The objective is to help EU countries build more effective institutions, stronger governance frameworks and efficient public administrations. Such support reinforces the capacity of EU countries to design and implement policies to support job creation and sustainable growth.

Areas of support include:

  • governance and public administration
  • revenue administration and public financial management
  • rule of law, anti-corruption, anti-money-laundering and anti-fraud activities
  • investment climate
  • public assets
  • energy union and climate issues
  • education
  • sectoral policies
  • health care
  • labour market issues
  • financing and access to finance, capital markets union (CMU)
  • migration and border control

The SRSS also coordinates the Commission's efforts to support the process led by the United Nations for the reunification of Cyprus. The SRSS is also responsible for the implementation of the EU Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community and for monitoring the application of the Green Line Regulation.

In June 2018, it took role as the Commission’s coordinating service for public administration and governance.

The Quality Administration Toolbox is intended as a reference and resource by pointing readers to existing EU policies and international practices in the field of public administration and governance.
