Public administration gets more and more digitalized

The goal of this law, which is still being discussed in parliament, is to make public administration’s management, which is currently chaotic and nonfunctional, easier and more technological. The main benefit will be its ability to act beyond the boundaries of individual ministries and coordinate digital agendas.

The agency is expected to be established on Jan. 1 and begin operative in early April, initiated by the minister for regional development and deputy minister for digitization, Bartoš. This agency will present itself as a body with more than 300 people who will centrally manage the state’s digital services. Bartoš already wants to start with preparations, such as choosing a temporary representative who will follow the whole process of starting the agency. The agency will manage the basic records and take care of their development. Three competence centers are to be created within the agency, where experts will be concentrated: they will be dedicated to shared services and education, strive for a uniform standard of services, and work on analysis and development. In addition, more professional and centralized digitization has another advantage, which is that it will “enable flexible response to crisis situations.”

There is no shortage of criticism, coming from the opposition ANO movement, considering the agency expensive and unnecessary. “It’s not clear what the ties are with the Ministry of Interior and it’s not clear to us what the agency means,” said the head of ANO deputies, who tried unsuccessfully to send the law back to the government for review in September.
