ZAGREB, May 22, 2020 – An agreement on upgrading the Central Registry of Affiliates (REGOS) services on the labour market, worth HRK 54 million and to be co-financed from the European Social Fund (ESF), as part of the Operational Programme Efficient Human Resources 2014-2020, was signed on Friday.
The Central Registry of Affiliates will improve its efficiency and additionally enhance its promptness and quality of service related to pension insurance schemes. The project includes establishing pension information centres, developing a website and the mREGOS mobile phone application, as well as training staff at Regos.
Minister of Labour and Pension System Josip Aladrovic said that this, like other projects, encourages digital transformation with the help of EU funds to develop a modern public administration and provide citizens with services that are more accessible and more efficient.
More accessible, better and prompter services
Aladrovic recalled that the ministry had already signed similar agreements to improve services for end-users of services provided by the Pension Insurance Institute, Croatian Employment Service and Regos.
“The total value of the three agreements signed is HRK 314 million and it reflects the extent of the transformation these three institutions will undergo,” he underscored and added that the incumbent government has had more than HRK 14 billion available through the ESF, HRK 9 billion of which has been contracted and more than HRK 5 billion has been paid out.
