Detailed description Back

The overall objective of the study is to obtain a Secretariat that is effective and is fit-for-purpose, and to equip it with the means to achieve its mandate as set out in the revised Georgetown Agreement [ACP/27/005/18 Rev.13].

The specific objectives of the study are to:

  • Produce a report that :
    • Assesses the strengths and limitations of the present organisational structure of the Secretariat of the OACPS; and
    • Identifies areas for reform that will enable the Secretariat of the OACPS to be “fit-for-purpose,” with an organisational (managerial and operational) structure that takes into account the need to design and group jobs within the Departments, with a view to aligning them to the OACPS’s strategic objectives, thereby reducing duplication within and across departments and units. To this end, the Secretariat of the OACPS’s Macrostructure will have to be evaluated: Analysis of roles by position and Department, at the Management level, and the Microstructure: Analysis of the workload at the operational level.
  • Identify ways to achieve better synergies, efficiency, and effectiveness across all Departments and Units of the Secretariat’ of the OACPS. Proposals should aim to reflect the vision and ethos of the Revised Georgetown Agreement, and the Nairobi (Nguvu-Ya-Pamoja) Declaration of the 9th Summit of OACPS Heads of State and Government.
  • Recommend two (2) or more possible scenarios for an optimal organisational structure of the Secretariat of the OACPS that would effectively and efficiently meet its mandate, providing the pros and cons of each scenario.
