Haiti will improve public management and services delivery with a donation from the IDB

The donation will contribute to strengthening the effectiveness and efficiency of human resource management in public administration and the productivity of the country's public sector

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) approved a donation of $55 million to finance a project that will strengthen public management and improve service delivery in Haiti.

The project will contribute to expand the coverage of services provided by the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARNDR) and the Ministry of Public Works, Transportation, and Communications (MTPTC), through improvements in management and labor productivity of resources human beings of the public administration.

To strengthen the management of public sector personnel, the project will support the Office of Human Resources Management (OMRH) and the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) in the implementation of policies that guarantee meritocracy in access to public positions and improving the control of spending on salaries. It will also support measures to promote the professionalization and improvement of public human resources skills, training plans and continuous development of competencies, and the implementation of management tools such as a new job classification structure to improve the composition of resources human beings in these ministries.

The project will contribute to improving the quality of spending by strengthening the computer systems for the management of human resources and salaries, and the implementation of a Biometric Registry to improve the control of personnel management.

In addition, it will support the functional reorganization, the strengthening of the administration of human and financial resources, and the operation of key services in the aforementioned ministries. Finally, the Superior Court of Accounts will be supported in the review and simplification of control procedures, and the preparation of annual reports of accountability to citizens.
