Effective Public Administration - ESF

Programme description

The Slovakian operational programme ‘Effective Public Administration’ ensures investment in strengthened institutional capacity and effectiveness as well as an effective judicial system and increased law enforceability.

This programme outlines the priorities and objectives to spend EUR 335 million (EUR 278 million from the EU budget) on reducing regulatory and administrative burdens and promoting high standards of transparency, integrity and accountability in the Slovak public administration.

The planned actions will target central government bodies, territorial self-governing bodies and municipalities, courts and judiciary institutions, social partners, and relevant civil sector organisations. The programme will contribute to the implementation of central and regional public administrative reform in Slovakia, including modernising human resource management and improving regulatory impact assessment. At the same time, it will support important cross-cutting themes, such us the fight against corruption or improvements in public procurement processes in Slovakia.

Measures that will address the identified key problem areas in the judicial system aim to achieve improvements in law enforceability. This includes shortening court proceedings and increasing clearance rate – important factors in building trust among citizens and businesses. All reform steps and activities will be implemented in a consistent way in compliance with the principle of an independent judicial system.

For the provision of e-government services support, implementation of this programme will be closely coordinated with the operational programme ‘Integrated Infrastructure’ under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
