We are delighted to announce that Mancala Consultants has been awarded the EU evaluation of budget support in Albania! This evaluation has been commissioned by the Directorate General for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) under the FWC EVAL 2020 framework contract, in which Mancala is part of the consortium led by Particip.
The scope covered by this strategic evaluation includes the programs financed by IPA II funds and channeled through the budget support modality. The following sectors are covered: Public Financial Management, economic recovery, public administration reform, good governance, rule of law, anti-corruption, social inclusion, employment and transport.
This is the first strategic assessment in a candidate country following the OECD/DAC budget support assessment methodology. It is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023 and thus serve as an input to the strengthening of EU-Albania relations, as well as to the use of this modality in the Western Balkans region in general.
