Administrative Capacity Index (REP)

REP is an Index of Administrative Capacity, which enables the comparative evaluation of Public Administrations (local, national and European), with particular focus on performance, anti-corruption and transparency. It analyses budget, governance, personnel, services, procurement and the environment, using objective data and the methodology of the ESG Sustainability Indices for the corporate world.
