The paper describes approach to the performance management in terms of NPM. There are many factors which contribute to the implementation process of the performance management related to NPM. These factors include, among others, (1) the Law on Financial Control, (2) the Regulation no. 415/2008 on Goal Oriented Budgeting, (3) the Strategy on Smart Administration Implementation, and (4) the government order has enabled to implement the principles of competence management since 2011.
