Activity 1.1 Support the establishment of a Project Management Unit (PMU) within the OPM
The OPM appointed a Project Director, a Coordinator/National Senior Policy Advisor, a Finance & Administrative Officer and a Project Assistant to ensure efficient project management, support, follow-up and reporting. Office space was allocated to the Project Management Unit (PMU) in Postel Building, and the project operations begun in March 2019. However, the procurement of computers, software and other equipment was not achieved in 2019 because the procurement process is still on-going.
