SIGMA works with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia within the EU's overall policy framework for the Western Balkans, the Stabilisation and Association Process (SAP). SIGMA currently supports the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, a candidate country since December 2005, in the following areas:
Legal Framework and Civil Service Management: Ministry of Information Society and Administration
Public Procurement: Public Procurement Bureau, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economy, State Appeals Commission
Further information on SIGMA’s current projects in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will be made available shortly. Please also contact Xavier Sisternas, Country Coordinator, or Maria Sperling, Country Assistant.
SIGMA's annual Assessments review the progress made by EU Candidates and Potential Candidates in public administration reform. These Assessments feed into the EC's annual Progress Reports and its programming of technical assistance. They also aim to provide countries with inputs into their own reform activities.
Assessment reports prepared for the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia are available here.
