Joint Monitoring Committee of 3 March 2005                                                        23
Implementation Status Report                                                              Internal Market


Main objectives:
 The 2001 PIFC intended to implement an adequate internal financial control system in line with
   the respective Community Directives. The Twinning project focused on (i) strengthening PIFC
   system of the Central Harmonising Unit (CHU) and Internal Audit Unit of the Ministry of Finance
   (MoF), line ministries and spending centres, (ii) enhancement of financial management of
   Structural and Cohesion Funds, (iii) training of financial controllers, internal auditors and staff of
   the CHU, and (iv) defining and establishment of the monitoring system for Structural and
   Cohesion Funds.
 The 2001 TWL project Bilateral Investment Treaty was originally designed to focus on the
   investment treaty with the USA. However, this issue was solved in September 2003. The content
   of the assistance, which ended up as a FWC, was then flexibly re-designed to solve open issues in
   the area of investment treaties. The 2001 TWL projects in the area of budget and taxation assisted
   in fulfilling necessary EU membership obligations in the public finance area.
 The 2002 UIBF Evaluation Strategy project addresses the need to introduce evaluation as a tool of
   transparency, accountability and management for initiatives funded from EU/ public sources.
 2003 UIBF brings the whole gamut of INT projects: IS Review and IS Strategy have clear
   linkages to Slovakia’s Public Financial Management Reform (PFMR) and to the complementary
   World Bank (WB) loan in the area of improvement of the IS at the MoF. The TWL assistance on
   Risk Management, provided to the Tax Directorate, addresses relevant capacity building activities
   for the tax management. The Protection of Financial Interests project, focusing on sound financial
   management of EU funds, is relevant for following-up the verification audit findings of the
   Extended Decentralised Implementation System (EDIS). The Budget Evaluation project is linked
   again to the PFMR and to the 2002 UIBF Evaluation Strategy project for the Office of
   Government, spreading evaluation culture to all public funds. Training of Financial Controllers is
   a follow-up of the 2001 PIFC intervention, dedicated for ex-post financial controllers, and fits into
   the overall theme of improvement of financial management of public funds.
 The 2004 Strengthening Public Finance Management project intents to improve public finance
   accounting and the fiscal and financial management reporting systems as well as the functioning
   of the State Treasury and also to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation system of public funds,
   including EU funds and accordingly to achieve compliance with certain obligations arising from
   the acquis communautaire.
 The 2004 Systematic changes in tax audit project intents in connection with the EU accession to
   increase of tax audit efficiency through introduction of systemic changes.
 The 2004 Capacity building in the area of internal audit project focuses on strengthening the
   system of internal audit at the MoF, line ministries and spending centres for performing internal
   audit and to assist in completing and implementing the permanent training system for internal
   auditors.

Component Banking

Relevant projects:
SR0110-01-01-0013 Strengthening the Banking Supervision to Implement Anti-money Laundering
Measures and Internal ratings; 2002/00.610-04 Strengthening Financial Sector Supervision; 2003-
004-995-03-01 Support to the Implementation of the Risk based Supervision

Main objectives:
 The 2001 Anti Money Laundering (AML) TWL project assisted in adopting and enforcing the
   FTAF recommendations. The provided training on techniques and typology of ML and prepared
   documents based on the FATF Recommendations and generally used international practice served
   for enhancement of existing AML provisions issued by the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS)
   regulators.
 The 2002 Financial Sector Supervision project intents to strengthen and well-co-ordinate
   procedures of both supervisory institutions NBS and Financial Market Authority (FMA), which
   both will have been merged into one regulatory body under the NBS by the end of 2005, following
   the relevant government decision.


Joint Monitoring Committee of 3 March 2005                                                              24

   The 2003 Risk-based Supervision project is a follow-up of the 2002 assistance in establishing
    systems of supervision over capital market and insurance on risk-basis as well as supervision over
    pension funds, financial conglomerates, e-business, market conduct and cross-border services and
    implementation of the Basel II provisions.

Component Customs

Relevant projects:
SR0104.02 Development of EC Compatible National Management Information System; 2002/000.610-
20 Information System for the administrative components promoting the law enforcement in the SCA;
5821901-02-01/0013 Training focused on Handling Informants; 5821901-02-01/0012

ray inspection systems for protection of the future EU external border; 2003-004-995-01-04-0011
Implementation of Naples II Convention; 2004/016-833 Strengthening of the antifraud traffic control
systems at the EU external border in the SR

Main objectives:
 The 2001 National Management Information System (MIS) focused on establishment of
   interconnectivity between the EC systems and systems of the SCA.
 The 2002 Information System for SCA (Slovak Customs Administration) project for the Customs
   Criminal Office has a cross-sectoral character, namely in connection with the fight against crime
   and aims to use an IS for integration of information and its analysis in order to avoid potential
   frauds in the field of customs.
 UIBF 2002 brings two projects: Handling Informants training is focused on the effective
   enforcement of law and revealing the serious infringements of customs legislation which are under
   competence of the SCA by making selected officers from Customs Criminal Office aware of
   recent methods and techniques of handling informants which are used by law enforcement
   agencies in the other EU member states. The project regarding Risk analysis techniques in the
   customs duties is going to support transfer of the responsibilities concerning collection of excise
   duties from the Tax Administration to the Customs Administration and effective applying of
   Acquis Communautaire.
 As regards 2003 customs investment, the Supply for the Customs Laboratory delivers special
   equipment facilitating determination of the origin of agriculture products. The X-ray Inspection
   Systems project is to install stable and mobile x-rays at the Slovak Eastern border.
 The UIBF 2003 Implementation of Naples II Convention intends to complete the accession
   process in the field of management of internal borders, especially implementation of Naples II
   Convention and other relevant legislation.
 The 2004 Antifraud traffic control systems at the EU external border intends to strengthen the
   anti-fraud control systems at the EU external border by providing specialised technical equipment
   capable of monitoring suspicious traffic entering and departing. The technical specification for the
   procurement of the equipment will be provided by EC.

Component Customer Protection/Market Surveillance

Relevant projects:
SR0104.01 Support of Market Surveillance System in Consumer and Health Protection; 5821901-02-
01-0014 Strengthening the Rapid Alert System network for food safety in the SR

Main objectives:
 The 2001 Market Surveillance project focused on improvement of the administrative capacity of
   the existing bodies respectively in the non-food and food sectors and the development of
   integrated market surveillance bodies in the food and non-food sector.




Joint Monitoring Committee of 3 March 2005                                                             25

   The UIBF 2002 Rapid Alert System for food safety focused on upgrading of present knowledge
    on Rapid Alert System and risk assessment issues through intensive advanced training of RASFF
    unit staff.

Operational Results:

Effectiveness

Concerning FINANCE, 2001 PIFC has clearly contributed to the fulfilment of its purpose focusing on
‘implementation of an adequate internal financial control’ via its output, such as development of audit
trails, manuals for financial control and internal audit, concepts of SF financial management, training
of 1000 employees and the prepared Concept of Internal Auditors and Financial Controllers
Education. Marginal effects of the assistance have been lost due on-going internal reforms (decrease
from 44 to 41 internal auditors). All 2001 FIN TWL projects have delivered their expected benefits,
mostly in the form of adopted legal acts and staff of the concerned MoF departments, prepared for
their new tasks after the EU accession.

Provided that all concerned parties come to a consensus, the 2002 UIBF Evaluation Strategy project is
likely to produce some benefits. For the time being, PHARE and SF are seen as two different
instruments (the one finishing, the other about to start) with no linkages at all and therefore efforts are
taken to separate all activities instead of using the knowledge and experience accumulated from the
pre-accession operations for the future. The 2003 UIBF IS Review and IS Strategy projects for the
MoF should bring concrete effects when choosing the methodology for information collection and
choosing a strategy on IS support including a business model. Moreover, the 2003 UIBF Protection of
Communities Financial Interests should contribute to prudent financial management of the NF and the
chosen Indicators of Achievement. The Budget Evaluation intervention should bring some effects
when establishing an evaluation structure for public funds, as intended in its design. Risk Management
for the taxation area should become effective as well. The 2003 UIBF Training of Financial
Controllers once implemented as designed should contribute to execution of sample checks of the total
eligible expenditure of the Structural and Cohesion Funds and Schengen Facility.

In the area of BANKING, the NBS has already benefited from practical effects of the 2001 TWL
when implementing the anti-money laundering manual. The 2002 Financial Sector Supervision is at an
early stage of implementation however, the fulfilment of the relevant purpose in the area of
enhancement of supervision of the financial sector is expected, the new merged regulator can be
established by early 2006. Both parts of the 2003 TA to the Financial Sector Supervision are at pre-
implementation stage, however the purpose - focusing on establishment systems of risk-based
supervision over the financial market - is achievable once the assistance is fully implemented. The
legislation base for the adoption of the Basel II as planned under this 2003 Programme is very
challenging, which however, might also be the case for most of the EU member states.

2001 National MIS has made a remarkable progress towards enabling exchange of processing data
between the SCA and the EU systems, since 1 May 2004 the Slovak CUSTOMS was made fully
operational and linked to the priority EU systems, with the lower prioritised systems to be linked soon.
Also, the 2002 Customs programme, intending to establish a functional IS for special customs law
promoting units, will make a positive contribution, since the necessary HW and licenses have already
been purchased and the analytical stage of the IS development is progressing satisfactory. The 2003
Customs investments have good chances to achieve their purposes. Notably, 2003 Supplies for
Customs Laboratories, once the new equipment is delivered, should contribute to both determination
of goods’ origin and also detection of tax evasions. Likewise, the delivery of the 2003 X-ray
Inspection Systems should improve the functioning the EU external border and should help to prevent
illegal trade and migration. Customs Directorate of the SR in cooperation with CFCU is completing
the technical documentation. Activities of the 2003 UIBF project on Naples II started in October 2004;
in principle it should result in some effects for the development of staff responsible for implementing

this Convention. The 2004 Antifraud traffic control system at the EU external border project is in very
early stage of preparation.

The effectiveness of the CUSTOMER PROTECTION assistance has to be increased by better
coordination of activities in this field. This is the case for the 2001 Market Surveillance programme.
The food part met its objective and set up the necessary legal basis and structures for the RASFF. The
delayed non-food part brought some benefits for the STI controllers through the lectures, in particular,
for areas where no previous experience exists (e-market). Similar effects can be reported for the
NGOs. However, the programme objective, identical with the purpose of the non-food part, referring
to the setting-up of a global, co-ordinated and efficient market surveillance system in the SR, has not
been fully achieved as the recent EC mission has confirmed that Slovakia still lacks an overall co-
ordination body in this area. The 2002 UIBF Rapid Alert System network for food safety in the SR
once implemented as designed should contribute to improve the present knowledge on Rapid Alert
System issue and risk assessment.

Efficiency

In general, the efficiency of Internal Market projects is satisfactory. Finance, Banking and Customs
projects have suffered from initial delays, resulting often in shortened implementation periods but
causing no major difficulties for the planned outputs. Finance, Banking and Customs have produced
remarkable effects, particularly from 2001 funding. Predictions for effectiveness of the overwhelming
majority of the outstanding 2002 - 2003 interventions are good. 2001 Market Surveillance/Customer
Protection experienced problems with co-ordination and its non-food part suffered from delays
because of a lack of commitment from the Ministry of Economy. However, all contracted project
activities were successfully delivered. The Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed Stuffs is
operational.

Regarding FINANCE, proper efficiency of the 2001 PIFC programme was adversely influenced by
the overall staff cut at the MoF. Currently, the CHU has only eleven staff, which is a decrease by
three persons compared with the past IE. Also, the absorption capacity of internal controllers in the
regions, due to the on-going Public Administration Reform, remains limited. The TW was extended by
three months and during this no extra-cost extension, additional training activities and also manuals
were produced. In general, the 2001 TWL Finance projects run smoothly and co-operation worked
well. The activities were carried out as planned and minor adjustments were flexibly adopted once
needed.

The 2002 UIBF Evaluation Strategy project has been implemented in co-operation with the Aid Co-
ordination Unit (ACU) at the Office of the Government. The non-participation of all concerned
authorities at the design stage has been reflected in the unwillingness of some important bodies to co-
operate during the implementation. Subsequently it has been difficult for the contractor to receive
sufficient feedback on the draft produced and to facilitate some consensus on the final strategy. The
Strategy contractor has been, in parallel, also leading a TA project for SF preparation at the MoCRD/
Community Support Framework, where the major criticism on the Evaluation Strategy project has
appeared. Apparently, co-ordination on the contractor’s side failed to stimulate co-operation between
these two projects and to reach some synergy effect, which could have been helpful for smoother
implementation. Apart from the MoCRD, the other key stakeholders involved (OoG, MoF) basically
support the Strategy, which was already delivered. The 2003 UIBF projects for the MoF are at
implementation stage. The IS Review and IS Strategy projects being complementary to the WB
projects for implementing the PFMR, require co-ordination with the other donor activities. Therefore,
a MoF Steering Committee has been organised monthly and is performing adequately. Project
Protection of Community Financial Interests delivered the first part of consultation, seminars and
workshops concerning cash-flow and irregularities. The Capacity building for Budget Evaluation
project and Training of Financial Controllers project is going to start its activities as approved in
Inception Report. The first round of seminars took place in the Tax Administration in frame of Risk
management in Slovak Tax Administration project.


Joint Monitoring Committee of 3 March 2005                                                             27
Implementation Status Report                                                                     Internal Market




The Anti Money Laundering assistance to the NBS under 2001 BANKING TWL had to be transferred
from TW into a FWC due to lack of interest from the side of member states causing some delays.
After resolving these initial difficulties, the project is making satisfactory progress. Efficiency of the
2002 Financial Market Supervision has also suffered from delays for the same reasons. The overall
duration of the assistance has been shortened by six months, with no detrimental effects on
implementation. The 2003 Risk-based Supervision Programme is at its contracting stage,
demonstrating sufficient efficiency.

In the area of CUSTOMS, overall co-ordination of the 2001 National MIS and of the 2002 IS for
Customs rests, apart from the overall co-ordinating MoF/ Unit of Foreign Assistance, with the Slovak
Customs Administration (SCA)/ IT Section and Customs Criminal Division. The smooth co-ordination
of activities and professional approach on the side of contractor and beneficiary the 2002 Customs
Programme has led to good prospects for all activities to be implemented within less than a year
(though originally planned for three years). Some savings, totalling 0.5 M€, generated from purchase
of servers and personal computers under the 2002 intervention were used for additional HW for the
back-up centre of the CCO. The contracted equipment will be delivered in the beginning of year 2005.
Both 2001 and 2002 Customs programmes perform well. Efficiency of the 2003 Customs investment
programmes, namely the X-ray Inspection Systems intervention has suffered from an unpredictable
overlap with Chinese bi-lateral assistance, and thus the relevant TS was re-drafted. The small TWL
2003 UIBF intervention for Customs will start its implementation in January 2005.

The physical implementation of the food part of 2001 Market Surveillance/CUSTOMER
PROTECTION was entrusted to the MoA’s Department of Food and Nutrition in co-operation with
the SVFA and other relevant bodies. MoA programme implementation run smoothly. The non-food
part, under the responsibility of the MoE, experienced a number of problems: apart from delays caused
by unsuccessful tendering and the need to transform the original TW into a TA project, willingness
and commitment to the Programme were not always clearly demonstrated by the MoE. The project
was finally given to the Slovak Trade Inspection (STI) under very limited participation of MoE. A part
of the activities was devoted to about 40 NGOs, and have been very difficult to co-ordinate. The initial
timing failed and so the equipment for STI was delivered before the start of the accompanying TA.
Co-operation between the food and non-food part of the Programme was absent. However, at the
ministerial level (MoA, MoE and Ministry of Health - MoH), a co-operation agreement concerning
market surveillance has been signed and some co-operation has been established.

Risks to successful completion:

 Last minute contracting of FM 2003 funds after EDIS accreditation due to a switch from EU rules
  (PRAG, GGAPP) to national public procurement rules.
 In the event of absence of any firm commitment received from the MoCRD, the OoG and MoF
  should identify ways how to make maximum use of the Evaluation Strategy.
 Lack of cooperation in projects where more than one party is involved. This concerns also the
  2001 Consumer Protection project. Based on the co-operation agreement signed by Ministries of
  Agriculture, Economy and Health, the institutions concerned should agree on the establishment of
  a formal overall body that would provide global co-ordination of market surveillance in Slovakia
  and could serve as a contact point for the relevant European Commission Services.

Key steps taken:

    NAC/ ACU organises contracting meetings to detect risky projects and decide on appropriate
     remedial actions.
 The OoG should try to utilise some of the outputs of the strategy together with the results of the
  ongoing UIBF 2003 Capacity Building for Evaluation of the Budget of the Public Administration
  project (managed by the MoF). It is expected that a document might be presented to the
  Ministerial Council.
 The Ministry of Economy has committed itself to co-ordinating market surveillance in Slovakia
  and serving as a contact point for the Commission services. Competent representatives of the
  Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Health will be consulted on a regular basis.
 In the case when more than one party is involved in the project implementation beneficiaries ought
  to organize common Steering Committees in order to ensure close coordination of project
  activities.
