An effective and trusted public sector is, in addition to a competitive economy and social cohesion, a significant factor in Slovenia's development. Therefore, it is our goal to establish a high-quality public sector providing people and companies with accessible and customised services.

We endeavour to adopt transparent and simple legislation in order to prevent the occurrence of new administrative burdens and enable simpler procedures for the economy and the citizens. We devote a lot of attention to developing high-quality, transparent, and effective services carried out in cooperation with various stakeholders, also by using digital transformation. Our work is driven by responsibility, transparency, cooperation, justice, and effectiveness. 

Our goals are defined in the Public Administration Development Strategy, which indicates the measures and activities by way of which we strive to achieve a higher level of professionalism, innovativeness, and responsibility of public officials, strengthen internal control mechanisms for limiting corruption risks, and systematically encourage the transparency of our activities. Decisions and activities laid down in the Strategy are justified on the basis of the anticipated benefits for the citizens and business entities.
