Vláda ČR: Chceme legislativu podloženou tvrdými daty a dobrými analýzami, řekl ministr Šalomoun na konferenci o využití dat a metodik ve státní správě

Chceme legislativu podloženou tvrdými daty a dobrými analýzami, řekl ministr Šalomoun na konferenci o využití dat a metodik ve státní správě. Praha, 10. března 2023 – Ministr pro legislativu Michal Šalomoun zahájil konferenci o efektivním využívání dat a metodik ve státní správě po pandemii covid-19. Na konferenci v Lichtenštejnském paláci vystoupili také zástupci dalších ministerstev a organizací a i odborníci z ČR i Evropské unie. Úvodní slovo ministra pro legislativu Michala Šalomouna Ladies and gentlemen The Czech Republic is currently facing many challenges that lie in the speed of change and the ensuing uncertainty associated with, for example, digitalisation, demographic changes or a deteriorating environment. Ensuring the quality of life of citizens is thus becoming even more difficult than in the past. Developed countries rely on evidence-based public policy-making principles. It is this way of making decisions that helps to improve the social, economic, environmental, cultural and other aspects of citizens' quality of life, despite the various challenges. In the Czech public administration, the analytical approach in the preparation of government documents is insufficiently applied. The RIA process is currently written for the sake of form, and data-driven public policy-making is practically non-existent. This leads to a relatively large number of politically motivated decisions that do not need to be, and in the current set-up often cannot be, based on valid data. In the long run, analytical capacities face limits in both quantitative and qualitative terms. The current government coalition has therefore set one of its goals in its Programme Declaration – to cut through the bureaucratic jungle, to provide for high-quality legislation and engage in smart state management. The current state of analytical work of the state administration in the Czech Republic, which we inherited from previous political representations, is not satisfactory. The operative and professional capacities of analytical departments are insufficient, the functioning of the state administration lacks horizontal coordination, the emphasis is on operational activities at the expense of strategic and analytical ones, and existing modern analytical approaches and methodologies are not used in practice. This is also why many of the analytical bases for decision-making on legislation, regulations and reforms in the Czech Republic are of insufficient quality to match their importance. In many cases, the analytical underpinning of regulations is completely absent. As a result, governments, including the current one, are poorly supported in preparing, advocating and implementing reforms and defending them to the public. Our goal is to reform the analytical framework in the Czech public administration to ensure evidence-based policy-making, as is common in all developed countries. We have therefore started to build an expert workplace within the Office of the Government, named the Government Analytical Unit (GAO), which employs top experts. I believe that the Government Analytical Unit can be one of the key tools for achieving systemic improvement of analytical work in the Czech public administration. The next step is to support the provision of quality RIA processes in all Ministries. In the long term, improving analytical capabilities cannot be completely separated from the overall increase in government efficiency. However, this requires a major multi-year project involving: significant improvements in human resources (restructuring and development); process changes, especially in terms of setting specific realistic milestones and regularly assessing the degree of their achievement; and structural changes involving the coordination of selected agendas at central level, especially in terms of exchange of experience, training of experts and setting ground rules and quality levels. These agendas include digitisation (where changes are already underway) but also, for example, database management and advanced analytics. Examples from abroad show that modernising the civil service is an achievable goal. We consider this to be one of the basic conditions for the long-term development of the entire Czech Republic. The situation is mapped in detail and a number of recommendations are contained in the forthcoming report of the OECD Public Governance Review of the Czech Republic, of which the results and recommendations will be presented on 30 March 2023 at a press conference attended by the Prime Minister Petr Fiala and OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann. Today's conference also offers a look back at the recent pandemic crisis, which we have all gone through and a reflection on whether appropriate analytical support and effective data handling could be the hope for the future.
