Public policy document

The Federal Ministry of Justice and Federal Development Programming Institute, with the support of the Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency (SDC) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), started the activities for the preparation of working materials – the Law on Development Planning and Management in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, under the Integrated Local Development Project (ILDP) in 2012.

In compliance with the Decision on the Manner of Preparation, Impact Assessment and Selection of Policies in the Draft Procedure for Acts Proposed and Adopted by the Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Federal Ministries (''Official Gazette of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina'', No. 27/11), with the support of the USAID Project Strengthening Government Institutions and Processes in Bosnia and Herzegovina (SGIP) and consultations with UNDP/SDC ILDP Project, the public policy document – Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) was made. The proposed text of the Law on Development Planning and Management in the Federation ensures a basis for full implementation of public policy goals at all government levels. The suggested solutions in the law are based on preferred options, in compliance with the competences of all government levels specified in the Constitution.

The present law regulates general provisions, institutional framework for development planning and management in the Federation, strategic and implementation documents in the Federation, development planning and programming process in the Federation, monitoring, evaluation and reporting on the implementation of strategic documents in the Federation, financing of the implementation of development priorities in the Federation and monitoring of the application of this law.


All institutions, NGOs, associations, citizens and other interested persons are invited to submit their comments and suggestions to the proposed working text to the e-mail: alma.kobaslija@fmp.gov.ba.
