The project aims at further improving the overall system of public administration to reach its ultimate goal, that is to establish a compact and accountable government.

Expected Results:

  • An analysis of functions performed by the oblast government administration with the view to optimally allocate functions to a level of government deemed as the most appropriate to perform such functions.
  • An analysis of staffing needs of the oblast government administration to effectively perform functions assigned to this level of government.
  • Recommendations on the optimal structure of an oblast government administration, as well as on its optimal staffing levels to effectively fulfil its mission.
  • A register of state functions, which will contain a comprehensive list of all government functions, at the central, regional and local levels; along with the number of personnel currently involved in the execution of each state function, as well as the cost of performing state functions.

A readiness analysis of the quasi-private and private sector organisations to assess their capacity to perform a predetermined number of state functions; accompanied by a set of recommendations for potential transfer of such functions to the most appropriate entities.
