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

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.

Strengthening analytical and evaluation capacity in the Slovak Republic

This chapter examines the Slovak government’s use of evidence-based decision making and its analytical capacities. It argues that the decisions of the Slovak administration on policies, legislation or spending are often insufficiently based on evidence and sound analysis. There have been attempts to improve the situation; however, progress remains slow, especially due to the lack of demand on the side of the decision makers. This chapter also provides a set of recommendations on how to strengthen the analytical capacities of the Slovak administration to better support the government’s decision making.
