The National School of Public Administration was established by virtue of a Resolution of Poland’s Council of Ministers dated May 30th 1990. 

The National School of Public Administration, which was established soon after the May 1990 initiation of transformation of the political system by the government of Tadeusz Mazowiecki, has played an important role in the reforms of public administration, and in building an independent and professional civil service in the democratic Poland. It was the first establishment of its kind in any of the former Communist bloc countries.

In the changing reality of the last 25 years, KSAP has been unwaver­ing and painstaking in discharging its statutory obligation to train com­petent and politically neutral personnel for public administration. The National School of Public Administration strives to meet the challenges faced by the Polish administration, addressing its needs, and developing close cooperation with various institutions and organizations operating domestically and abroad.

The School reports to the Prime Minister of the day, acting pursuant to the Act on the National School of Public Administration of 14 June 1991.
