July 15 2014

The overall objective of the PASCAL project (Civil Society and Local Government Support Program) is to contribute to consolidate the democratic governability and to social cohesion in Dominican Republic. In addition, the specific objective of this contract is to provide long, medium and short term Technical Assistance to the Ministry of Public Administration (MPA) during 30 months for the implementation of the municipal component of its Strategic Plan 2012-2016.

Dominican Republic shows significant improvements in fields such as the reform of its public administration and the public finance management, but still has tasks pending related to the efficiency, transparency and the accountability of the public sector management. In terms of institutional governance, the civil service reform has been a milestone in terms of the professionalization of human resources. However, there is still a long way to go regarding the impact that this process must have in reducing corruption and State efficiency.

To achieve it, Eptisa will provide technical assistance services structured around three results:

  • Result 1: Institutional strengthening of the MPA to implement the municipal component of its Strategic Plan
  • Result 2: Institutional strengthening of the 40 pilot city councils to implement the Law on Public Function
  • Result 3: Improvement in the provision of public services in 40 pilot municipalities through an improved participation
