The author analyses the design of the normative and institutional framework for responsibility, as a fundamental organising principle of the European Commission and its administration. The analysisfocuses on mechanismsfor the whistleblowing, financial responsibility, as well as for investigation and disciplinary sanction. Reasons of efficiency and utility are most important in citizens’ assessment of the EU successin providing servicesfor better quality of life. Since the effectiveness of any administration heavily depends on the personal performance of its civil servants, enhancing the European civilservants’responsibility became high priority in the aftermath of the 1999 European Commission corruption scandal.Are adopted measures strict enough to prevent emergence of maladministration in the European Commission and its services? What are major obstacles in further promotion of the EU administration’s responsibility?
