    • Supporting Organizational Capacity Development for Enhanced Efficacy & Sustainability
      Pact Vietnam’s Approach
    • Background
      Derived from global best practice, Pact’s worldwide mandate & our local experience:
      • Recognition that technical competency and overall organizational health are inextricable
      • A development hypothesis that promoting organizational viability& efficacy will lead to more sustainable VNGOs that are better able to manage the national response independent of donor trends / funds
      • Increasing awareness that health sector VNGOs and CBOs have potential to provide inroads into civil society development in Vietnam writ large
    • Organizational Capacity Building Strategy
      Launched in 2008
      Shift to a more systematic approach to capacity building that recognizes technical capacity development cannot be addressed in isolation from other foundational organizational capacities
      Pact Vietnam Programmatic Approach
    • Our Approach
      Coordinated partnership approach (HPI, VSO, Care, SNV / LCDF, etc)
      Peer- connected
      Look globally, adapt locally
      Guiding Principles
    • Our Approach
      Key Features
    • Pact’s Globally Recognized Organizational Capacity Assessment Methodology (OCA)
      Process overview:
      • Participatory tool design
      • Guided self-assessment
      • Results debrief & action planning
      • Drafting of organizational strengthening plan (OSP)
      • Pact support for implementation and monitoring of OSP
      • Re-OCA every 2+ years
      Capacity framework (tool) developed by our partners:

      Material & Financial Management
      Organizational Structure & HR Management
      Professional Skills

    • Cross-Partner Priorities Identified through FY 09 OCA Process
    • How will we know we are succeeding?
      Quarterly monitoring & updating of Organizational Strengthening Plans (OSPs)
      Self-reported change in organizational capacity
      • through re-OCA & Most Significant Change techniques
      Uptake of best practice capacity building methods by peer organizations & subgrantees
      Learning events with partners to capture successes
      Cataloguing of local service provider performance data
    • Challenges / Reflections
      Retrofitting an existing program
      Short grant cycle & programmatic confines
      Mandate & risk aversion
      Training fatigue
      Balancing customization with reach
      Training individuals in high turn over environment
      Hard to capture what is truly in demand
      • Challenge of being both a capacity builder & donor focused on compliance
      • Potentially supply-driven and lacking cohesion
      • Understanding the organization’s motivations & incentives to buy in
      • Relatively resource-rich environment
      Getting beyond those ‘first in line’
      Confusing market information regarding service providers
      Recruiting qualified capacity builders on staff
      Working assumption that building the capacity of CSOs at the organizational level extrapolates to building civil society capacity writ large
    • The Way Forward
      Global Fund
      • offers new operational paradigm and the resources to fund it
      • forging new and stronger partnerships
      • allows expansion of existing CB activities
      Aligning our resources to match our priorities
      Focus on sustainability / partnership with the Resource Alliance, looking beyond donor grants
      Local Capacity Development Initiative (LCDF)
      Fellows program for mid-level and talented staff*
      Lunch & Learn series*
      * Concepts under exploration / development
