Strengthening the impact of Public Administration Reform in Bac Giang province

Introduction

Improving performance of civil servants and quality of delivery of public services to the people and organizations through OSS/IAOSS mechanism are priorities in the PAR Master Plan 2011-2020 of Bac Giang. These objectives are in line with the policy and priority directions of UNDP in the coming years, which is a key strategic priority for Bac Giang DOHA and UNDP cooperation, given that UNDP is strongly positioned to offer policy advice, expertise and experience from around the world in strengthening access to public administration services of the people and disadvantaged groups. Through support to Bac Giang DOHA, the project aims to enhance a customer-oriented approach, and accountability and transparency of human resource development procedures. Furthermore, the project will support Bac Giang DOHA in its advocacy efforts towards gender equity in public administration system and in accessing administrative services.
