Centre to hire organisation to evaluate governance

The government is will engage a "reputed" organisation to conduct research and evaluation studies on good governance initiatives to identify gaps and bottlenecks in the implementation of such schemes.

The Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievance (DARPG) under the Ministry of Personnel is looking for an institution to appoint as a consultant for the project.

The organisation will have to evaluate good governance initiatives, including award winning best practices across the country, with an objective to understand the "impact, utility, user satisfaction. sustainability, scalability and replicability of these initiatives".

This is also to develop a model practice by improving the good practices incorporating technological advancement and changed requirements of people and for possible replication in states.

The study should be a "comprehensive and critical review" of the good governance initiatives to analyse the "tangible and intangible" benefits and assess their overall socio-economic impact by clearly indicating the output and outcome of the initiative, a senior official said.

It will have to identify the gaps and bottlenecks in the implementation of the initiative and provide practical suggestions for its  removal and bring out in clear terms the features of the initiatives which have made it successful.

The institute will also have to develop a model practice plugging the gaps found in the best practice on evaluation, incorporating technological advancement.
