The Secretariat-General of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (SGPCM) is a central service within the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. It possesses administrative autonomy and answers directly to the Prime Minister, or to another member of the Government to whom the latter delegates that responsibility.

SGPCM’s mission is: to provide and coordinate support for the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM) in the legal, information, technical and administrative fields; to exercise inspection and auditing functions by considering whether the acts which are undertaken by the PCM’s departments, services and bodies, or which are subject to the oversight of members of the Government who belong to the Council of Ministers, comply with the applicable laws and regulations; and to evaluate those entities’ management and results by using technical, performance and financial auditing methods to control them.
