DG REFORM was created in January 2020, taking over the mandate previously carried out by the Structural Reform Support Service.

DG REFORM 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.

Examples of reform support

DG REFORM also coordinates the Commission's efforts to support the process led by the United Nations for the reunification of Cyprus. DG REFORM is also responsible for the implementation of the EU Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community and for monitoring 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.
