Support for the reorganization and strengthening of internal audit and inspection

As part of the project to support resource mobilization and modernization of public finance at the Directorate General of Taxation (DGI), C2D was mandated to support the DGI with the restructuring of the Service Inspectorate unit into three new units : Risk Control, Internal Audit and Inspection. The mandate includes reengineering internal audit processes, training and implementation of new operational tools. Eventually, nearly 900 agents will be trained through the project. One of the objectives of the project is to contribute to the integration of a culture of risk control within the DGI.

C2D is delivering this assignment in collaboration with Kinshasa-based KPMG DRC.


Design of a Technical and Vocational Education and Training Management Information System (TEVET-MIS) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

C2D Services was mandated by UNESCO as part of the BEAR Project (Better Education for Africa's Rise Project) to design a technical and vocational education and training management information system (TEVET-MIS). Based on a contextual analysis and an assessment of user needs, the purpose of the assignment is to design a management information system allowing various stakeholders (ministries and publics organizations responsible for TEVET planning and management, training institutions, students, and private companies) to make informed decisions on public policies, resources allocation or career guidance in the area of technical and vocational education and training.

This mandate is in line with the UNESCO TEVET strategy whose goal is to “support the efforts of Member States to enhance the relevance of their TVET systems”. One of the challenges is to update the technical and vocational training to better match training with employment, through the strengthening of the educational partnership between training institutions and businesses.

C2D Services’ technical assistance covers: (i) Analysis of the current situation; (ii) Needs assessment regarding the governance system, content (statistics and indicators), and the technical environment; and (iii) Design of the TEVET-MIS. Validation of findings, needs, and elements of the TEVET-MIS design by various stakeholders in the DRC also constitute important components of C2D Services’ assignment.

Support for the Revision of the Strategic Plan of Mining Sector Development (PSDM) – 2016-2021 of the Democratic Republic of Congo and organization of the technical validation workshop of the PSDM project

As part of the Good Governance in the Mining Sector as a Vector of Growth (Projet de Bonne Gouvernance dans le Secteur Minier comme facteur de croissance, PROMINES), C2D and its local partner have been entrusted by the DRC Government with the mandate to review and update the Strategic Plan of Mining Sector Development (Plan Stratégique de Développement du secteur des Mines, PSDM) – 2016-2021 and organize a technical validation workshop for the PSDM project. This strategic plan is an important tool that will provide the country with a framework for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the performances of the mining sector, based on a Development-Based Management approach. Starting from the draft version of the strategic plan, the assignment calls for the plan’s enhancement in a participatory manner, namely during a 2-day national workshop involving all the stakeholders, while securing its ownership. The specific objectives of the project are the following:

• Review and validate the vision, strategic objectives, programs and mandatory actions identified for the PSDM;
• Define the PSDM performance framework (definition of the targets of the indicators) and the cost of implementation;
• Secure the consistency of the final draft of the PSDM, in accordance with international best practices as adapted to the Congolese reality, and its cohesion with other national sectorial strategies, in order to contribute to the National Strategic Development Plan of the DRC.
