SIGMA is currently working with:

  • The Ministry of Public Administration on analysing the implementation of the new regulatory framework in the civil service area; identifying the options for monitoring the satisfaction of civil servants and enhancing the quality of public consultations. 

  • The Ministry of Finance on implementation of the new legal framework in the public procurement area and the implementation of sublegal acts of the PIFC law. 

  • The State Audit Institution on improving internal organisation and the capacity to plan human and financial resources for audit work.

  • The Administrative Court and the Ministry of Justice on drafting amendments to the Law on Administrative Disputes.
