This research explores in a comparative manner the instruments of reform and investments in public sector proposed by the EU Member States in their national recovery and resilience plans (NRRP), aiming to design a matrix that evaluates in terms of coherence the national reforms.
The objective of this study is twofold: on the one hand, it seeks to identify what are the common directions and instruments mainly proposed by the EU Member States in their NRRP; on the other hand, by using a specific methodological toolkit which combines policy and statistical analysis, this study will generate a framework of tendencies and patterns in modernizing the public sector in each national plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic, in order to create a matrix of government responses.
The sanitary crisis has challenged the public sector of the EU Member States and has determined the national governments to redesign new responses that could help institutions to readjust and adapt to new ways of delivering continuity of good public services. In order to strengthen the capacity of the public administration, EU Member States have proposed new sets of measures and investments in their NRRP. In addition to the ongoing reform processes, EU Member States have advanced new instruments and investments adapted to their own needs and necessities, as well as to the national policy responses to the pandemic, which can vary in terms of pace and scale of change.
Regardless of the existing gaps in the public administration reform process between EU Member States, a new coherent approach is reflected in the NRRP. This is the main research direction that this article seeks to argue with.

Keywords: Public administration reform, EU, NRRP, investments, resilience, public sector, pandemic.
