Montenegro: Capacity building of the Inspection Oversight Directorate

Field: Inspection oversight
Implementation period:
August 2020 – April 2021

In line with the Public Administration Reform Strategy in Montenegro, the Inspection Oversight Directorate was established in 2012, encompassing more than 20 inspections from various areas, so as to enable better functioning of inspection oversight and identify the problems related to inspection control. To facilitate this process, the Directorate is currently developing a Comprehensive Information System for Inspection Oversight (JIIS) which will help in aligning the inspectors' practices and performance, monitoring their work and reporting, as well as in ensuring better organization of inspection visits based on risk analysis. 

The key goal of this projecta is to improve the efficiency of inspection within the Inspection Oversight Directorate, in order to help the Government of Montenegro in reducing the scope of shadow economy, particularly during the COVID19 pandemic.

Namely, the Government of Montenegro highlights that the countering of shadow economy stands in the best interest of every citizens, since illegal business means less funds for education, healthcare, infrastructure, public services and other elements needed for the country's economic development. During the COVID 19 crisis, the shadow economy risks are further highlighted bearing in mind the numeroud irregularities detected in practice, which could mean higher risk for the citizens' health.

To fulfill this goal, NALED's project team will realize three specific objectives:

  • Harmonize the inspection oversight procedures (developing control checklists) – by developing models of control check lists and a total of 50 control check lists for various fields of inspection.
  • Precisely define the subjects and objects of inspection oversight by establishing new databases and improving/connecting the existing ones – by analyzing the existing registries and developing a functional specification for a new central registry of inspection oversight subjects and objectsm, which will make an integral part of the new information system.
  • Developing criteria and procedures for risk evaluation – by developing geenral and cpecific criteria for risk assessment and risk assessment patterns, as well as 10 risk assessment algorithms for specific areas.
