EU contribution EUR 30 million
The Government of Georgia recognises the strategic importance of Public Administration Reform (PAR) to its overall reform aspirations and to the effective implementation of the EU-Georgia Agreements. the Government has adopted several strategies addressing various aspects of the Public Administration Reform process however, to date the interventions have been disparate, ad hoc in character, and have lacked a systemic approach.

This will be done in harmonisation with European principles and best practices. The specific objectives are 1) to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Central Public Administration through the introduction of a policy-driven, results oriented approach; 2) to enhance the Civil Service’s functioning according to professional standards, impartiality and accountability, and improve transparency, accessibility and the quality of services to citizens; 3) to enhance accountability of the executive branch and combat corruption; 4) strengthen public finance policy processes in public institutions; and 5) to strengthen public finance policy processes in public institutions.
