The goal of this project is creation of the Programme Implementing Unit, which ensures that the Interim Police Assistance Programme (IPAP) is implemented on schedule and target while making best use of the available human and financial resources.
The Police Assistance Programme – interim phase - is an ambitious venture, requiring amongst other things, a considerable number of international experts to be contracted and technical support of more than 1 Mio € to be provided. The programme serves a multitude of beneficiaries, ranging from the MoI and various training institutions (both in the capital Bishkek and in the South) to district police stations, which are in the case of Batken, a 24-hour drive away from the capital.
Highly diversified inputs, provided to various target groups require professional, efficient programme implementation. That’s why the unit, which was in charge of the Police Assistance Programme (2003-2005), will be upgraded and become responsible for implementing the interim phase. The reasons for doing so are manifold. Most obvious is knowledge management so that the gained knowledge and skills may be fully utilised. Another aspect is time. The emergency intervention of the Police Assistance Programme – interim phase - does not allow a lot of time to build up human resources for instance.
One of the main tasks of the PIU is the actual implementation of the projects. Experience in the course of implementing the Police Assistance Programme demonstrates that the office staff (international and local) is directly involved in the implementation of the projects at different stages and from various points of view. Achieving positive results from projects requires the full involvement of the PIU manpower in the whole array of tasks to be resolved.
Having the PIU as an autonomous project in the set-up of the programme, allows for optimum flexibility in the implementation of the four projects. The PIU will grow/ shrink with the projects. It will be resource-efficient and output oriented and last but not least give a model of new (public) management to the beneficiaries.
