This report identifies the key elements needed for the development of a sustainable strategic framework for public administration reform, situating them in the Slovak Republic's administrative, cultural, legal and political context. The report is particularly timely, as it provides insight into the activities conducted by the Slovak Ministry of Interior and other Slovak authorities toward meeting the ex-ante conditions for EU structural and investment funds for 2014-2020.

Key messages and recommendations

Central government co-ordination: the transfer of some key horizontal responsibilities to the Government Office, the Slovak Republic’s Centre of Government institution, has the potential to improve co-ordination; however, further improvements are needed. There is a wide network of advisory boards, usually attached to specific ministries; the line ministries lead on their policy areas and the Council of Ministers takes final decisions on key issues. This leaves a gap, where complex policies and reforms that cut across traditional ministerial lines of command need to be addressed more collectively before they can be put to the Council of Ministers.
