The sixteen assessed pillars in the Slovak National Integrity System could be divided into two groups based on their performance - better performing (stronger) and not well performing (weaker) pillars. Such division is obviously simplifying, however allows us to cluster the pillars into two sets of institutions possessing, in some extent, common features.

The first set contains pillars with established entities and mechanisms of functioning that, in general, have been lately less turbulent in functioning and delivering respective tasks in proper way.

This involves for example Supreme Audit Office, Legislature, Media, Civil Society etc. Contrary, the second group contains entities that have been either operating in unstable environment (e.g. Judiciary, Prosecution, Police, Public Procurement Office) or have been less involved in anti-corruption or integrity policies.

Generally, Slovakia has well developed legal framework in terms of NIS. However it lacks implementation skills and mainstreaming of specific integrity mechanisms across the sectors.
