Public Administration Assessments

We offer a full package of Public Administration Reform (PAR) assessments for donors and other international organizations, based on tried and tested methods. The main purpose is to provide a factual basis and analysis that can be used by development agencies to plan and design their assistance to PAR. The assessments will help donors to:

  • Gain a comprehensive picture of the administrative and political situation in countries as a basis for designing their overall PAR strategies
  • Gather details on the state of development in specific fields of administration, including current and planned activities of other donors in these fields
  • Establish priorities for assistance to PAR
  • Design Terms of Reference for specific assistance projects
  • Identify potential political and administrative counterparts for future projects, including assessment of their level of commitment and influence
  • Raise awareness of the importance of PAR and of the reform of specific areas.

We have brought together a group of experts who have unrivalled experience of carrying out these assessments, as well as designing, implementing and supervising reform programmes in many countries.
