Testimony: "In 2019, the Bureau of Metrology became the first public administration institution to test its work in accordance with the requirements of the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) methodology, with the support of the Regional School of Public Administration (RESPA) and the Center for Public Administration Research (KDZ Austria). The Bureau's strategic commitment is to improve its work, as well as the services it provides to its customers, through the implementation of quality standards, which is the basic aspiration of a modern public administration, and the implementation of the CAF methodology is exactly what forms an excellent foundation on the path of such a development. The CAF model is a modern, simple and interesting tool, the preparation and implementation of which entails both improving the business processes and strengthening the team spirit. It is important to emphasize that CAF methodology enables in-depth recognition and identification of critical processes, and then, through different tools, it finds ideal ways to "recover" them. We believe that the implementation of the CAF model at the Bureau of Metrology will bring enormous benefits in terms of simplifying the process of defining the deadlines, responsibilities and the content of business processes, given the specific scope of competence of our institution. We strongly encourage all institutions in Montenegro to consider CAF methodology, as its implementation can significantly improve operations of each organization in just a few months."
