Reform: Pension Reform (2018-06-11)

On June 8 2018, the second phase of ReforMeter ended with an evaluation of the Pension Reform which is being discussed in Parliament.

According to the Government

Based on Government Survey, 38,8% of the reform has been implemented, but this index has not increased since Phase I due to parliamentary discussions which have been held since January 2018.

The government’s formal progress (at the input and output level) in the target reform area is measured through a survey covering the following four dimensions:

  1. Institutional Setup
  2. Capacity Building
  3. Infrastructure & Budgeting
  4. Legislation & Regulations

The sets of indicators are designed to track progress on each dimension towards the system envisioned in the reform strategy. They cover all fundamental actions that have to be executed to create an optimal environment that will help achieve all reform objectives. Completion of all actions indicates achievement of the desired policy framework.

The sets of indicators captured by the questionnaires are used to measure distance from the stated reform objective on a scale from 0% (no action has taken place) to 100% (all desired systems are fully implemented, monitored and evaluated).

The questionnaires are filled out twice a year through face-to-face interviews with representatives of all agencies involved in the implementation of a particular reform.
