The target audience includes military personnel from various countries (in past years e.g. Switzerland, Thailand, China, Jordan, Algeria, Serbia and Kazakhstan).
Review of the Implementation of the Action Plan for the Development Strategy of the Ministry of Interior of Serbia
The Swedish National Police, financed by the Swedish International Development Programme Cooperation Agency (SIDA) has requested assistance from DCAF to undertake an ISSAT assessment of the current situation regarding the implementation of the Ministry of Interior in Serbia Development Strategy 2011-2016 and particularly the so called “Action Plan”, related to the Swedish Police Assistance Programme.
The Swedish Police Assistance Programme is going to its end in December 2014. The purpose of this requested mid-term assessment is to study the progress of the implementation of the MoI Action Plan in relevant areas, and as well the current working-situation and the relevant process within the MoI. The study is intended to identify short comings and delay of the actions and activities foreseen and agreed in the Action plan, building on the internal evaluation currently being undertaken by the Bureau of Strategic Planning. The study should include recommendations for additional actions and assistance for reaching the goals and aims in the Action Plan within the framework of the programme.
The review should examine, as a minimum, the areas listed below. The overall areas and specific questions will be elaborated during the detailed development of the methodology and will take into account the information contained in the 2011 Baseline Study on Strategic Management Capacities in the Serbian MoI. In particular, the question areas will be narrowed down to ensure that the assignment is manageable.
- Relevance of the Action Plan to actual MoI priorities
- Effectiveness of the implementation of relevant areas of the Action Plan
- Efficiency of the MoI in implementing the Action Plan
- Ownership of the Action Plan by the MoI
- Communication and reporting on the Action Plan
- Coordination of implementation of the Action Plan and support provided
- Gender considerations
The study will include identification of specific obstacles to implementation, as well as highlighting successful approaches that may be transferred to other areas. The conclusions and recommendations provided by the review Team will be used as an advice to Sida/SNPB and the MoI in order to maximize the results of the Action Plan.
