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 the capability of the state civil service in the Slovak Republic

This chapter focuses on strengthening the capability of the state civil service in the Slovak Republic through strategic human resources management (HRM) practices that build on the legal and institutional reforms currently planned or underway. The analysis supports the findings and proposals contained in the Slovak government’s HRM Strategy to 2020, underlining the need for HRM practices that ensure merit, professionalism, continuity and the development of human capital in the staffing of the civil service. The chapter highlights how the consistent application of basic HRM procedures and standards across the civil service, supported by the Government Office and the planned establishment of an impartial and independent Council of the Civil Service, will create scope to develop strategic HRM based on competencies, performance and workforce planning.
