RESPONSIBILITIES

The main functions performed by the PPS are:

  • providing support to the process of determining Government priorities in the realisation of strategic objectives, and the monitoring of results of pursued objectives and coordination of the implementation of some public policies;
  • analytical support for the planning of strategic objectives and the monitoring of effects of Government’s public policies, the result of which might also serve as the basis for creation of more efficient public policies;
  • providing support for the maintenance of quality of public policies and regulations through the mechanism of qualitative evaluation of the assessment of public policies’ and regulations’ effects on business and citizens, which public administration bodies entitled to propose strategic documents of the Government are obliged to complete;
  • providing support for the maintenance of coherence of the entire planning system and the consistency of contents of Government’s strategic documents;
  • the processing and submission to the Government for consideration of the businesses’ and citizens’ initiatives for addressing issues in the implementation of redundant or inefficient regulations;
  • continual pursuit of the regulatory reform with a view to simplifying the regulatory framework and abolishing redundant administrative procedures.

The Public Policy Secretariat of the Republic of Serbia (further in the text: PPS) was established as a special organisation under the Law on Ministries (Official Gazette of the RS, No 44/14) that entered into force on 26 April 2014. This law stipulates that the PPS performs professional duties that relate to: the analysis, needs assessment for, and initiation of the drafting of strategic documents that establish public policies; ensuring that proposed strategic documents that establish public policies and draft laws are consistent with adopted strategic documents that establish public policies, in the process of their adoption; proposing initiatives to streamline procedures followed in the formulation of strategic documents that establish public policies; preparing motion strategic documents that establish public policies within the purview of all state administration organs, as well as other activities laid down by law.

The PPS also performs professional duties that relate to the pursuit of regulatory reform and the impact assessment of regulations drafted by ministries and special organisations, which includes: providing a preliminary opinion on the need to conduct an impact assessment and on the scope of contents of the enclosed impact assessment; assisting the regulation proposing institutions in establishing mechanisms for the monitoring and regulatory impact assessment in the course of their implementation; collecting and processing of initiatives of economic entities, other legal entities and citizens to amend inefficient regulations on the republic level; submitting initiatives to competent regulation proposing institutions to amend inefficient regulations; participating in the organisation of trainings for civil servants involved in activities related to the regulatory impact assessment; performing activities related to the monitoring and analysing of institutional and staff capacities for the pursuit of regulatory reform, as well as other duties specified by law.

Finally, this law envisages that the PPS takes over from the Regulatory Reform and Regulatory Impact Assessment Unit the employed and appointed persons, as well as rights, duties, files, equipment, work resources, and archives for performing activities specified by this law. In addition, the PPS takes over from the Ministry of Regional Development and Local Self-Government the employed and appointed persons, as well as rights, duties, files, equipment, work resources, and archives for performing activities in the field of strategic analyses and research. As a newly founded ‘Centre of Government’ organisation, the PPS will continue to perform all duties that used to be the responsibility of the integrated state administration bodies.

The mission of the PPS as an expert agency is to provide support to the Government in the creation and adoption of public policies and regulations that are of greater quality, better harmonised, and more efficiently implemented. More specifically, the PPS’ mission involves: ensuring the quality and harmony of public policies, public policy documents and laws drafted and proposed by decision-makers (creators of public policies and proponents of regulations); advancement of the process of public policies management (planning, analysing, creation, adoption, monitoring, evaluation of implementation and coordination of public policies) and the linking of the process of strategic management and budget programming; and setting and monitoring the implementation of strategic and operative priorities and priority objectives of the Government, as well as coordination of the process. In this way, i.e. through the setup of an efficient system of coordination of the entire process the room is created to fully implement public policy documents and laws, and to monitor progress in the achievement of strategic and operative priority objectives of the Government.

The PPS is responsible for a segment of the public administration reform in accordance with the Strategy for Public Administration Reform that the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted on 24 January 2014, and that for the realisation of particular objectives under the heading ‘Improvement of organisational and functional subsystems of public administration’ and ‘Raising the legal safety and promotion of the business environment and the quality of provision of public services’. In this context the reform pursued by the PPS will create mechanisms for the process of adoption of Government’s public policies to rest on evidence-based decisions and tools that would make public policies oriented towards desired outcome and effects, and based on reliable data. This also entails that public policies are mutually coordinated and in line with the budget framework.
