The Government of the Republic of Armenia Armenia Public Administration Reform Strategy INTRODUCTORY METHODOLOGICAL WORKSHOP September 4-5, 2019 Kotayq, Armenia Background A well-functioning public administration is a prerequisite for transparent and effective democratic governance. Achieving the necessary standard of public administration requires reforms in many areas of both policy and administration. If reforms are planned and implemented in a fragmented, ad hoc way, they may not transform the governance system and functioning of a public administration as expected. Achieving results requires governments to steer and co-ordinate implementation of an overall reform vision and prioritised objectives. Effective and clear leadership, well-functioning implementation mechanisms, clear accountability lines and financial sustainability are at the heart of any successful reform strategy. They are critical for ensuring that a strategy is actually implemented and does not exist only on paper. Under the co- ordination of the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office (DPMO), the Armenia Government is embarking on developing a new, comprehensive strategic framework for PAR. The ambition is to develop a comprehensive strategy that is aligned to the Government’s vision and commitment for good governance and based on the key findings of the SIGMA 2019 Armenia Baseline Measurement. As per the Concept Note on the development of the PAR strategic framework, in co-operation with SIGMA, the DPMO has developed methodological guidance for the participants in the strategy development process in order to ensure full alignment in the methodological approach of the various Working Groups (WGs) in charge of elaborating the different thematic pillars of the PAR strategy. The methodological guidelines have been developed based on the SIGMA Strategy Toolkit and provide practical insights and advice, as well as easy-to-use tools. Purpose The purpose of this workshop is to introduce to the WG members of Armenia PAR team the methodological approach and the toolkit that will be used during the strategy development process. Target Audience Members of the four working Groups, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, experts and other stakeholders immediately involved in the PAR Strategy development works.
