    2003 (decision No. 432). MTS defines main
    objectives, priorities, partners and principles
    of the Slovak development aid. Therefore it is
    the basis for other documents including annual
    national programmes, bilateral agreements with
    development countries, financial guidelines and
    budgets.
  • On April 28, 2004 government approved The
    National Program of ODA for 2004 (decision No.
    388), which determines the individual components
    of the ODA budget, allocated budget and
    conditions for providing development assistance.

  • Guidelines for the Provision of Official
    Development Assistance, approved by the
    government on 2 July 2003

    guidelines with the objective to determine the
    procedure, define mutual co-operation and
    competencies of individual subjects, line
    ministries and responsible officials for
    providing official development aid. It also
    defines and regulates the rules of managing the
    funds and assets in the process of the ODA
    National Programme implementation).
  • Memorandum of Understanding between the
    Government of the Slovak Republic and UNDP
