Abstract
The article proposes to apply the competence approach to the development of modern public administration. The public administration object are the the interests of social institutions in the common territory, which have different interests and goals. The problem of defining and allocating public functions as prerequisites for defining and forming the competences of public institutions is analyzed. The result of applying the competence approach is the institutional consolidation of functions in the context of the existence of the main models of the territorial organization of power. Trends in the development of the competence approach in the context of the practice and theory of public administration are analyzed. It is concluded that modern concepts of public administration are characterized by a shift in the balance between state and public institutions in the sphere of common goals and objectives, and, accordingly, responsibility. The public activity of all subjects of society is determined through the implementation of new forms of cooperation, the definition of spheres and subjects of activity of each subject for effective cooperation, the distribution of functions and competencies of the subjects, the formation and consolidation of their status characteristics. The general sphere of competence of local self-government has been determined, which defines the basic principles of powers and functions for local self-government. The limits of competence of public authorities are analyzed in the context of the analysis of the European Charter of Local Self-Government. It is provided to summarize the general competence of public authorities through the implementation of their main functions and tasks.
