image of Slovak Republic: Better Co-ordination for Better Policies, Services and Results

This review analyses public governance in the Slovak Republic and provides recommendations to support ongoing comprehensive public administration reform. The analysis is structured around five key areas: the centre of government’s capacity to steer and lead policy development and implementation; analytical and evaluation capacities; human resources management and civil service; e-government; transparency and integrity in the public administration. The review identifies two main themes running through these five areas: The first is the need for more effective whole-of-government co-ordination of strategy-setting and implementation, led by the centre of government. The second is the need to generate and use evidence more effectively when making decisions.

Enhancing transparency and integrity in the Slovak Republic

This chapter reviews the existing integrity and transparency mechanisms in the Slovak public sector, especially in relation to codes of conduct, management of conflict of interest and ethics training. Examination of these three areas will give the opportunity to provide evidence-based guidance to help the Slovak Republic advance towards implementation of comprehensive integrity framework. This is important since the level of perceived corruption in the Slovak Republic still remains high, despite the government’s efforts to enhance integrity across the public administration.
