In order to further improve the work of the institution, especially its efficiency, and put into practice all the principles learned in theory, the project will pilot the introduction of performance management and the development and use of key performance indicators (KPIs). In co-operation with the Parliament Human Resources Department, the Mission will engage an international expert who will assess a selected number of procedures in the Parliament and on that basis develop and implement two-day training on performance management and Key Performance Indicators for a group of selected staff. As part of this task, the expert would support the selected staff (on line) in developing performance management tools in their respective areas, as well as hold an additional meeting for the finalisation of the tools. He/she will also develop guidelines for future use in the Parliament on the development of performance management tools.
For the Parliament to be more effective and efficient, it needs constant support and service from the administration. The parliamentary service includes 7 units and employs around 150 staff members. With the goal of strengthening the efficiency of the parliamentary service, in co-operation with the Parliamentary Department for Human Resources, from 2016 the Mission started organising series of trainings for the heads of the departments of the parliamentary service with the aim of strengthening their skills as managers and offering them tools to increase their internal communication skills. The trainings were proved beneficial for the participants, exposing them to new tools and mechanisms, offering them new channels for communication and increasing the level of inter departmental interaction. During the previous activities and training with the managers, one of the reoccurring comments was the need to start building better performance management processes and tools. This influences the level of efficiency in the institution, performance and atmosphere among the employees. This activity will pilot the development of performance management tools in a number of selected departments.
The Democratization Programme therefore invites applications from highly qualified, energetic and experienced international professionals for the temporary consultancy post of International Expert on KPI's who would be tasked to analyse a number of selected procedures in the Parliament, to design and implement two day training for a small group of selected staff, focussed on performance management processes and tools, Key Performance Indicators and SMART Objectives, to support the participants through online mentoring to develop and design tools and KPIs in their respective areas for the following year and also to develop guidelines for future use in the Parliament on the development of performance management tools.
