Tangible property of the State
Tangible assets of the State comprise movable and immovable property that is owned by the Republic of Slovenia. The property is managed by different managers in accordance with the principles of economy, publicity and transparency.
The management of tangible assets means the acquisition, management and lease of tangible assets, as prescribed in the Physical Assets of the State and Local Government Act and the Decree on Physical Assets of the State and Local Government, as well as having disposal over it.
The efficient management of state-owned immovable property improves capacity utilisation and the generation of savings in connection with property maintenance.
Systemic regulation of immovable properties
With legislative proposals and implementing regulations related to tangible assets, the State imposes on state authorities and authorities of self-governing local communities the content and procedures of managing their tangible assets (immovable and movable property). In addition, we comprehensively handle movable and immovable property of deceased persons without heirs and immovable property recovered in cases of limitation of inheritance, when the deceased was receiving state aid.
Our tasks also include establishing and keeping the central register of state-owned immovable property. In order to manage the state-owned tangible assets more efficiently and transparently, we prepare management plans for state administration bodies, judicial bodies, public institutes, public utility institutes, public agencies and public funds, as well as annual reports on tangible asset management at the end of the of the fiscal year.
In 2009, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia adopted binding guidelines for the management of the state-owned immovable property in the form of the Strategy for the Management of Real Property Owned by the State.
Investments and the border
Investments in business premises of administrative units and state administration bodies
As part of investment projects, we plan, prepare, manage and execute investments in the business premises of administrative units and state administration bodies. Our tasks include searching for suitable immovable properties to rent, buy or build, preparing design documents, and investment and other documentation, selecting contractors within the investment process and executing construction, finishing and installation works, as well as purchasing equipment. Furthermore, we manage the facilities at border crossing points of the external Schengen border.
In our work, we devote considerable efforts to protecting cultural heritage and adapt numerous activities accordingly. This particularly affects the energy efficiency rehabilitations of facilities, as we are limited in the number of possible measures for achieving energy efficiency.
To ensure a uniform standard of business premises, we prepared criteria for arranging business premises for the needs of government budget users that define the size of business premises and their equipment.
Investing in equipment and facilities at border crossing points
The Ministry of Public Administration is one of the final beneficiaries of the Internal Security Fund. On the basis of the adopted national programme and action plan for drawing resources from the Asylum Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and Internal Security Fund (ISF), the ministry is implementing two projects:
The replacement of worn-out and damaged equipment at border crossing points with the intent of guaranteeing the Schengen standards (network servers, workstations, diesel generators, AC, convectors, traffic lights, heat pumps and valves, UPS devices, gas furnaces, etc.) and the replacement of worn-out customs sheds and containers.
The management and maintenance of the infrastructure at border crossing points (the management and maintenance of facilities and equipment at all border crossing points on the temporary external border, costs of materials and labour for the regular servicing of the equipment inside the facilities and in the surrounding outside areas, winter service, infrastructure maintenance, etc.) for the smooth functioning of border crossing points.
With these projects, we will ensure suitable and safe facilities at border crossing points on the EU external border with the aim of implementing border checks in accordance with the Schengen standards. EU co-financing will likely continue until the Republic of Croatia takes over the control of the Schengen border.
Additional information on drawing EU funds from the ISF: management and control systems, programming documents, guide, national rules and alerts are available on the website of the Ministry of the Interior.
