INTER-MINISTERIAL COORDINATION

 

In accordance with Article 10 of the Rules of Procedure of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia [Uradni list RS], Nos 43/01, 23/02 – corr., 54/03, 103/03, 114/04, 26/06, 21/07, 32/10, 73/10, 95/11, 64/12 and 10/14) government materials must, prior to being submitted for debate by the government, be coordinated with the relevant ministries and government offices. Drafts of general acts and acts relating to the work of the government must always be coordinated in advance with the Ministry of Finance and the Government Office for Legislation. Only when it is not possible, after obtaining the opinions of the ministers and government offices that have been involved, to reach an agreement or when coordination in advance is impossible due to the urgent nature of the procedure, can materials that have not been harmonised be submitted for government debate.

 

Every ministry and government office approached must offer its opinion on the material drawn up within 14 days at the latest of having received it, otherwise it shall be considered that the ministry or office agrees with the content of the material.

 

In the case of general acts and acts on the government’s work, the opinion of the Government Office for Legislation must be obtained again if during the prior inter-ministerial coordination the material has changed. The new opinion must be delivered within five working days at the latest after the receipt of the amended material, otherwise it shall be deemed that the amended material is harmonised.
