Documents Related to overall Management Response:
1. Recommendation: Overall, the SES Programme recruited and deployed 98 professionals to strategic areas where they were most needed. The programme was highly relevant and the right intervention.

Civil Service Agency 2015/12 No Longer Applicable [Justification: Only 2 out of 100 MACs were fully integrated to date. UNDP will work with the new government to ensure that this is part of their plan.]
2. Recommendation: Anchor the programme to address the current capacity gaps and restructure the programme to be able to target the real needs and demand of MACs. To maximize the impact of the programmes in the future, a critical need assessment will be required to match programme support to planned incremental implementation of the AfT. The GOL should identify unique skills and develop two to three core areas at each MAC.

3. Recommendation: Properly integrate the SES Programme into the Liberian Civil Service. The GOL should ensure that the SES programme is not seen as a programme outside of the Civil Service. This was the original purpose of the programme and it still remains critically significant for the future of programme. The GOL should provide the necessary budgetary support to integrate the SES professionals into Civil Service under the National Capacity Development Unit within CSA.
