  • Best in class administration and human resource management within GoB.
  • Trained, motivated and performance oriented Government officials.
  • 'Service delivery in partner departments and pilot Collectorates', the key cornerstones for which are efficiency, effectiveness, accountability and equitability.

Progress made so far
The first six months of the programme was devoted to formulate detailed reform strategies for the partner departments. The reform strategies were developed keeping in mind that citizens are at the core of good Governance. Consequently, the attributes which were perceived as pillars for formulating the strategies included:
  • Accountability
  • Transparency
  • Responsiveness
  • Equitability and inclusiveness
  • Effectiveness and efficiency
  • Participation
During the first six months, conceded efforts were also made to develop a well defined baseline. This was done to objectively measure the performance of the partner departments post implementation of the identified reform objectives over the next five years.
The implementation phase has been initiated in the past few months. Please visit the 'focal departments' section for an update on the initiatives rolled out.
