4. Recommendation: Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 4: The UTIPE?s budget to be progressively absorbed into the national budget of Mozambique. International donors in the short-to-medium term should include PRM in their broader support to the Rule of Law sector in Mozambique, to ensure that their support for the PRM is not overlooked or minimized. In the long-term, support to the PRM for police reform should be through direct contributions to the GoM General Budget, in the framework of the PARPA strategy.
Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/03/01]

In accordance with the UTIPE, the Phase IV will support existing capacities within the UTIPE and the PRM rather than creating new UTIPE positions. Coordination with other donors in the sector (the European Commission and the USAID) was initiated and is in progress.

6. Recommendation: COMPONENT 2: ORGANIZATIONAL AND OPERATIONAL IMPROVEMENT Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 6: Meals to be provided to the personnel on duty. Refectory services should be extended to all police stations and the working shifts should be adjusted to 24/48 hour tours of duty in the short-term, as both of these factors affect the operational ability of the police officer.
Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/03/01]

Refectory services are under the responsibility of PRM/MINT, since these are functioning expenses that are beyond the scope of the project. Actions in this area are not foreseen in the Phase IV (in agreement with the PRM). The same applies for working shifts.

Key Actions:

7. Recommendation: COMPONENT 2: ORGANIZATIONAL AND OPERATIONAL IMPROVEMENT Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 7: Ensure that the terms of the new Organic Law and the future regulations are applied in a progressive manner to foster decentralization where needed; that additional competencies be assigned at provincial and district level, and special attention be given in the areas of budget allocation and the provision of goods and services; and that sustainability of the model stations be ensured by allocating the necessary operating and maintenance budgets. It is also vital to ensure budgetary sustainability to the NEPs, to identify the bottlenecks and to activate the key operational and administrative systems linking the police to justice.
Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/02/23]

Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/03/01]

Establishment of new recruitment requirements to improve quality of the PRM members is foreseen in the Phase IV. Module courses on ethics and gender are integrated in the Phase IV of the project (cf. above), as well as is a course on human rights.

Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/03/01]

Availability of professional development training modules/courses are foreseen in the Phase IV. Due to the lack of funds, these activities could not be transformed into action so far. Joint trainings programmes could not be planned neither.

Key Actions:

12. Recommendation: COMPONENT 3: PERSONNEL AND TRAINING Evaluation Recommendation or Issue 12: There is an urgent need to establish an intense recruitment and training programme to be able to increase the number of effectives in the force. In addition to an expansion of the Matalane School, the Mission recommends that the training centers in Beira and in Nampula be re-established. The establishment of police schools in the center and in the North of the country provides for decentralization, more diverse recruitment, and better and more effective training.
Management Response: [Added: 2010/02/22] [Last Updated: 2010/03/01]

The Phase IV does not foresee major infrastructure realisations since it is the last phase of the project and considering the cost it would represent for the project. On the other hand, the Phase IV includes action on HIV/AIDS aimed at giving a clear picture of the number of recruits and police officers dying from HIV/AIDS every year and enabling further actions in this area.
