The Decentralisation Support Programme is a 15 million Euro programme which aims at supporting the steering of decentralisation at a national level and at building the capacity required to enable the provinces of Kinshasa and North Kivu to improve their efficiency, notably in the provision of basic services and the management of public finance.
The specific objective of the service contract is to ensure coordination, annual planning, implementation, follow-up and reporting of both strands of the decentralisation support programme and to perform the financial and contractual management of the actions implemented by the institutions and structures concerned.
