The Slovak public sector is facing increasing pressure, due to the efforts to work more efficiently while embracing new or broadened responsibilities, such as EU funds administration, sustainability, or innovative methods of supplying services. In the public sector, the demand for efficiency is constant, be it in regard to management, infrastructure, or healthcare. Furthermore, the public sector is the scrutiny not only by Slovak citizens, but by the European Union as well.
