From 2006 to 2013, Moldova modernized its civil service legislation and administrative processes under the Central Public Administration Reform (CPAR), supported by the Bank's administered CPAR MDTF. However, additional efforts are needed to transform Moldova public administration and bring it closer to the EU standards as planned under the action plan for implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU, signed in 2014.
Governance is identified as a cross-cutting issue and interventions are planned to improve the business enabling environment, enhance public administration reform and quality of public service delivery. The Government has requested the World Bank’s assistance for a PAR operation, planned for delivery commencing in FY17 to 2021, called Modernization of Government Services Project (MGSP).
Due to upcoming workload related to the launch of the first activities under the Project Preparation Advance including planned tendering procedures under the new project, an additional Procurement Specialist should strengthen the PIU Team.
