Support to Civil Service Reform and Managment Capacity of Public Administration
This project covers the period of 2012. It aims at supporting civil service reform initiatives that are undertaken by the Office of the Minister of State for Administrative Reform (OMSAR) to modernize public sector organizations, provide them with the latest management and ICT tools to further improve their service delivery and facilitate the fulfillment of their missions. This project also backs up the activities that are funded by the EU to boost the technical and managerial capacity of municipalities and non-government organizations.
The UNDP’s assistance to OMSAR has been facilitating the implementation of the reform goals since 1994. The relatively long record of assistance to OMSAR by the UNDP, the reform experiences that have been accumulated by OMSAR, the successive Government Policy Statements that followed the formation of Cabinets in which OMSAR was mandated to reform and develop the public sector, and the new Strategy for the Reform and Development of the Lebanese Public Administration necessitated a new vision for support to administrative reform programs, civil society advancement and local development.
