He leads a team of analysts at the Value for Money Unit that assesses the effectiveness of public investments, assists with their planning and the preparation of feasibility studies. The goal of the OHP is to strengthen the results orientation in decision-making on public policies, regulations, investments and government operations. For public investments, the IHP helps to analyse whether public funds will actually be spent in the best possible way to achieve the stated objectives. For more than 10 years, he has been professionally dedicated to supporting the use of data and analytics in decision-making. For the last 5 years, he has worked at the Ministry of Finance where he has also worked on the preparation of the review of IT spending and the digital component of the Recovery Plan.
