The Government of Pakistan recognizes institutional reform and modernization of the public sector as one of the pillars of development and growth framework. To actualize this vision, the Ministry of Planning Development & Reform (MoPDR) proposed a project for enhancing efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and accountability of the public sector through institutional change and robust performance management.
In order to support the government in this task, UNDP signed a four-year project with MoPDR titled “Reforms and Innovation in Government for High Performance”.
Strategic guidance and oversight of the project is carried out both by the Steering Committee of the Institutional Reform Group, as well as by the Project Board which is co- chaired by the Minister, MoPDR and the Country Director, UNDP-Pakistan. The Board’s composition includes representatives of the Planning Commission, Economic Affairs Division, Finance Division, Establishment Division, IT Division, the Planning and Development Divisions of the provinces and the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics.
