The objective of the Public Sector Modernization Program Project for Burkina Faso is to improve selected service standards in targeted regions of the ministries responsible for primary education, justice, labor and civil service. The project has five pillars. (1) Improving the efficiency and the quality of public service delivery pillar is to enhance public administration performance for sustainable development and streamline the decision-making processes, procedures and structures within the public administration. The pillar strives to (i) improve the performance and productivity of the administration; (ii) improve the satisfaction of public service users; (iii) streamline public administration structures and procedures; and (iv) introduce new approaches, methods and procedures to the public administration. (2) Upgrading and improving human resource capacity of public administration pillar will focus on human resource capacity framework and improve staff working conditions which are affected by outdated equipment and physical infrastructure. This pillar focuses on two issues: (i) improving operational and human resources capacities and (ii) strengthening the administration’s capacity for human resource policy development. (3) Promotion of accessibility and transparency in the public administration pillar will improve access to services and to establish the principle of accountability across the entire public administration. It aims to develop mechanisms for civil servants to be more effective and to be at the service of clients/citizens. (4) Promotion of e-governance pillar seeks to improve the quality of public services through the use of ICT. It aims to increase the ICT capacities of the administration by promoting the use of ICT tools and online services. (5) Promotion of deconcentration and decentralization pillar envisages the deconcentration of the central ministries for an effective decentralization in favor of local development. It aims to address local governance capacity and inadequate delegation of power from the center to deconcentrated units. The strategy plans to promote deconcentration and decentralization by strengthening the capacities of decentralized services to enable them to be able to effectively support the implementation of the decentralization process.
