Monitoring Reports

 

SIGMA has carried out reviews against the Principles of Public Administration in EU candidate countries and potential candidates since 2015.  Since 2017, these reviews have been carried out based on the Methodological Framework for the Principles of Public Administration. This framework provides an accurate and balanced measure of each Principle, ensuring systematic focus on implementation.

In 2021, Monitoring Reports covering the full scope of the Principles were prepared for Albania, Kosovo*, Montenegro, the Republic of North Macedonia and Serbia. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, the analysis focused on three areas (policy development, accountability and part of public financial management) and the remaining areas will be examined in 2022. Information on related bilateral events is available on this dedicated page.

These reviews analyse performance against standard benchmarks and performance criteria, establishing both the state of play at a point in time and the subsequent progress made towards the standards for good governance and requirements for successful European integration, as set out in the Principles and its indicators. Regional comparisons and detailed and sequenced recommendations for reform are provided. The reviews feed into the European Commission's annual progress reports and its programming of technical assistance. They also provide SIGMA partners with data and analysis to inform their own reform activities.
