Government at a Glance 2015

Метою напряму впровадження інструменту TAIEX є підвищення ефективності реалізації інструменту TAIEX шляхом взаємодії з різними секторальними програмами і проектами України та визначення ключових секторів діяльності, основних пріоритетів двосторонньої співпраці між Україною та Європейським Союзом, а також уникнення дублювання інших регіональних проектів та програм технічної допомоги.

ТАІЕХ є одним із найбільш поширених, ефективних та доступних серед усіх можливих інструментів допомоги Європейського Союзу.

TAIEX – це інструмент технічної допомоги та обміну інформацією, що надається Європейською Комісією з метою розбудови інституціональної спроможності, наближення та імплементації національного законодавства до законодавства Європейського Союзу (acquis communautaire), а також його подальшого ефективного застосування.

Інструмент технічної допомоги та обміну інформацією (TAIEX) був заснований Генеральним Директоратом Європейської Комісії з питань сусідства та переговорів щодо розширення у 1996 році для того, щоб допомоги країнам у стислі терміни привести національне законодавство у відповідність до стандартів ЄС та забезпечити виконання законодавчих норм. Завдання ТАІЕХ полягає в спрощеному механізмі передачі інформації та обміні передовим досвідом між країнами-членами Європейського Союзу та країнами-бенефіціарами (країнами-кандидатами, країнами Західних Балканів та країнами Європейської політики сусідства). Україна почала використовувати інструмент TAIEX у 2006 році.

Визначальними рисами інструменту TAIEX є сфокусованість на розв’язанні конкретних проблем розвитку та інтеграції, що вимагає від адміністрацій країн-бенефіціарів ініціативного підходу, самостійного визначення своїх потреб, підготовки і подання заявок, мобільності (від подання заявки on-line до надання допомоги проходить від двох до трьох місяців), що дає змогу використовувати його для вирішення термінових питань.

Основні цільові групи ТАІЕХ:

  • державні службовці, що працюють у центральних органах виконавчої влади;
  • державні службовці, що працюють в місцевих органах виконавчої влади та асоціаціях місцевих органів влади;
  • органи юстиції та правоохоронні органи;
  • члени законодавчих органів та державні службовці, що працюють у законодавчих органах та органах місцевого самоврядування;
  • професійні та комерційні асоціації, що представляють соціальних партнерів, представники профспілок та спілок роботодавців.

 

Переваги співпраці з ТАІЕХ:

  • наближення, імплементація національного законодавства до acquis communautaire;
  • сприяння інституційному розвитку органів державної влади;
  • підвищення кваліфікації державних службовців.
