03 December 2018 - Twinning project "Support for Human Resources Management in Public Administration" to be implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro, Human Resources Management Authority, HAUS Finnish Institute of Public Management and the Ministry of Administration of Croatia, was launched in Podgorica on December 3.
"We are launching this project at the moment when the Government of Montenegro is fully committed to public administration reform and when conditions for the reorganisation of public administration are created to create a modern, service-oriented administration. Our key goal is a satisfied citizen and services provided by professional and efficient civil servants," Minister of Public Administration Suzana Pribilović underlined at the launching of the project.
She noted that human resources management is one of the challenges the public administration of Montenegro has faced in recent years and is therefore recognised as part of the Public Administration Reform Strategy 2016-2010. Following the goals of the Strategy, the implementation of the new Law on Civil Servants and State Employees has begun, and its solutions were commended in the 2017 European Commission's report for Montenegro, Minister Pribilović pointed out.
The objectives of this project are strengthening the capacities for planning and managing the employment process, increasing the capacities for strategic planning and managing the process of professional development and training of state employees, establishing standards for human resources management in the public sector and strengthening the capacity of the administrative inspection.
The twinning project "Support to Human Resource Management in the Public Sector" financed under the EU IPA program for Montenegro, lasts two years and is implemented by experts from the institutions of Finland and Croatia.
