Background

The project “Transitional Capacity Support for the Public Administration of Moldova” was designed upon the request of the Government of Moldova to enhance capacities of the Moldovan Central Public Administration in order to accelerate the reform process and achieve Moldova’s short-and medium term development goals. The project seeks to address urgent short-term capacity needs of the public administration at a time when Moldovan central government institutions face serious financial and human resources gaps. In addition to helping the Government pursue critical reform priorities, the intervention is designed to catalyze the on-going implementation of central public administration reform. It is coordinated and managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and State Chancellery of Moldova and will complement on-going work by other donors.
The Moldovan diaspora and non-governmental sector, including the private and civil society sectors, would be the main source for such consultants. They would not be expected to become permanent staff of the civil service, but, based on a competitive process, would be hired for a defined period. Capacity Building Consultants could be freely tasked with re-designing the structure of an administrative unit, training, or the introduction/presentation of completely new regulations and procedures not previously handled by the administrative unit (none of these are expected to become permanent functions of a typical administrative unit). It could also be that the consultants establish and implement processes and procedures that an administrative unit is expected to perform on a regular basis in the future, for capacity building often needs to start by “showing by doing”.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is now globally recognized as an essential tool in promoting competitiveness, sustainable development, and overall poverty reduction.  As Moldova approaches lower-middle income status, the country needs to shift from consumption and remittances driven growth model to an economy with increased private savings and investments. The Government of Moldova, recognizing the need to use ICT as a crosscutting enabler of sustainable growth, competitiveness and improved governance and has embarked on a Governance eTransformation journey to improve the management in the public sector. In August 2010 the Moldovan Government created e-Governance Center (eGC) under the State Chancellery to manage the e-Transformation and e-Governance agenda.
