Institutional Support Project for Public Sector Reform is designed because of the need for the Government of Mozambique (GoM) to improve the framework of the public sector characterized by inefficiency and highly bureaucratic. The project is expected also to contribute to the improvement of the governance environment and by so doing help to satisfy a fundamental condition for growth and poverty reduction. By contributing to the strengthening of the government’s capacity to deliver public service, the proposed project should facilitate the implementation of the Government’s poverty reduction program and reinforce its efforts to promote good governance. The project has two components: (i) the establishment of 6 One-Stop Shops that should contribute to improve service delivery through decentralization and institutional restructuring and (ii) training activities set up by the Higher Institute of Public Administration (ISAP) directed to the managerial cadre within the public service. Both components should contribute to capacity building within the public sector and implement the Government of Mozambique Public Sector Reform Program objectives.
The sector goal of the project is to contribute to building the capacity of the public sector and implement GoM’s PSRP objectives. The specific objectives are: (i) to improve service delivery through decentralization and institutional restructuring; and (ii) to enhance professionalism within the public sector.
The project should benefit, among others, the one-stop-shop (OSS). This OSS focuses on improving the relationship between citizens and the State by providing better public services. The citizens and companies are the major beneficiaries as a result of reduced transaction costs and improved convenience. Main beneficiaries of the ISAP project are civil servants who hold a position of Director or Chief at central and provincial levels. Particularly, there are benefits for civil servants whose qualification is below their position and for officials with a specialized higher education (agronomy, medicine, engineering, etc.) who hold executive positions with a strong administrative component.
