Przyjęcie nowej ustawy o finansowaniu samorządów lokalnych jest obecnie w toku procedury parlamentu serbskiego. Celem nowej ustawy jest stworzenie przejrzystych regulacji rządowych, które określą system finansowania dla jednostek samorządu terytorialnego, co dodatkowo stworzy warunki stabilności i przewidywalności w zakresie planowania dochodów przy przygotowywaniu budżetów jednostek samorządu terytorialnego, a także jako osiągnięcie równowagi pionowej przy dystrybucji dochodów między różnymi poziomami państwowymi. Ponadto, cele te znajdują odzwierciedlenie w ustanowieniu systemowego zwiększenia udziału inwestycji publicznych w całkowitych wydatkach powiatów i miast, a także w równowadze pionowej w zakresie podziału dochodów i jurysdykcji na różnych poziomach państwowych. W tym sensie lepiej jest zrozumieć modele finansowe, takie jak partnerstwa publiczno-prywatne, które jeszcze nie zostały w wystarczającym stopniu przyjęte w Serbii, ale które mogą potencjalnie przyczynić się do znalezienia dodatkowych źródeł finansowania przez samorządy. Aby lepiej dostrzec obecne możliwości tego modelu finansowania samorządu lokalnego w Serbii, przeprowadzono badanie wiosną i latem 2016 r., Biorąc pod uwagę próbę 150 osób, wyniki badania wskazują na bardzo niskie zasoby ludzkie i możliwości techniczne samorządu lokalnego w zakresie znajomości i zrozumienia koncepcji partnerstwa publiczno-prywatnego.

The adoption of the New Law for Local Government Financing is currently underway in a Serbian Parliament procedure. The goal of the new law is the creation of clear government regulations which will define the system of financing for local government entities. This will furthermore create an environment of stability and predictability with regard to revenue planning when preparing local government entities' budgets, as well as achieving a vertical balance when distributing revenues amongst various state levels. Additionally, these goals are reflected in the establishment of a system to increase the share of public investment in the total expenses of counties and cities, as well as in the vertical balance with regard to the distribution of revenue and jurisdiction at various state levels. In that sense, it is preferable to understand financial models such as public-private partnerships, which have still not, to an adequate degree, been adopted in Serbia, but one which could potentially contribute to the introduction of additional sources of local government financing. In order to better perceive the current capacities of this model of financing local government in Serbia, a study was conducted during the spring and summer of 2016, taking into account a sample of 150 examinees. The results of the study indicate very low human resource and technical capacities in local government with regard to realizing and comprehending the concept of public-private partnership.
