SIGMA is currently working with:

  • The Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self Government on establishing a monitoring, reporting and evaluation system for Public Administration Reform and on identifying reforms needed to enhance the effectiveness of the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and the Ombudsman.

  • The Ministry of Finance on the implementation of certain measures included in the Public Finance Management Reform Programme adopted in 2015.

  • The Public Procurement Office on promoting greater use of modern procurement tools and practices and the Republic Commission for the Protection of Rights in Public Procurement Procedures in strengthening its capacities for the resolution of complaints and sanctions.
