3. Recommendation:

The governance and management structures should entail MOE senior management involvement in core decision making from the outset to ensure country ownership and sustainability and a systematic mechanism for consultation with stakeholders and cross –services interactions should be promoted. In addition, devolution of the future project activities to the services and departments should be an encouraging step towards building sustainable capacity in the MOE.
