In order to reach the main goals, the working team will conduct the following activities:

  • Improve internal systems and processes for long-term strategic planning and performance management;
  • Strengthen local and national-level public financial management systems, covering performance-based budgeting;
  • Introduce functional civil service and human resource management systems;
  • Establish internal and inter-agency systems for evidence-based policy development and law making;
  • Strengthen capacity of key parliamentary committees to provide oversight of line ministries’ and state agencies’ performance and spending;
  • Strengthen government internal control mechanisms and systems;
  • Improve systems, tools and capacity of the central government to monitor the performance of local governments based on objective and measurable.
