Delays in safety clearances limit state treasury operation

The state treasury will start to operate as of January 1, 2004, but its services will be restricted. State administration bodies should be fully plugged into the system by June 2004, news wire SITA reported.

Sensitive bodies, like the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS), or the Ministry of Defence, cannot be plugged into the state treasury system until Slovakia's vetting authority, the National Security Office (NBÚ), issues safety clearance for the main contractor of the state treasury information system, Hewlett-Packard Slovakia.

The deadline for deciding on clearances for the main contractor and subcontractors of the system was September 19. So far, only safety clearances for subcontractors have been issued.

The contract for the state treasury project, worth Sk1.28 billion (€30.96 million) and financed chiefly from the state budget, went to Hewlett-Packard Slovakia in October 2002.

The state treasury will centralize revenues, expenditures, and public sector guarantees in order to keep track of the public finance deficit. The project will enable the first real-time overview of public finances.
