On 25 February 2019, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, secretary of state for the ministry of the economy and finance, signed the ANFR objectives and performance contract (COP) for 2018-2020. The COP, one of the Agency's strategic management supports, is used to define the operator's priorities and objectives over several years and monitor them using indicators.
During the 2018-2020 period the ANFR will be at the centre of several of the major challenges of digital transformation, knowing that frequencies are the media for a wide number of economic and society activities. Three major events await the ANFR:
- The implementation of the 5G road map. The Government has high expectations of the implementation of the 5G road map to accompany the release of the new frequency bands that will be assigned by 2020. In this context, the Agency will also need to reinforce its mission to inform the general public about electromagnetic fields.
- The 2019 world radiocommunications conference (WRC-19) These major spectrum conferences are held every four years and the decisions they make set the framework for frequency management in the coming years, through changes to the Radio Regulations (RR).
- The 2022 public action objectives. Through this contract, the Agency reaffirms its ambition to be fully part of the administration's digital transformation objectives. It is planning to digitise all its business processes, to offer 100% online services and to consolidate its policy of opening access to public data.
The establishment's 2018-2020 COP has 3 main themes combined with 9 objectives and 28 indicators which will be monitored annually.
