Following the Functional and Institutional Analysis, conducted in 2016 with the support of the UNDP Democracy Programme, the Secretariat of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova (SPRM) has deployed a series of restructuring processes aiming to ensure further institutional development and capacity building of the parliamentary staff.

In order to improve the functioning and delivery of services by the Secretariat, a Strategic Development Program for 2017-2019 (SDP) was drafted and subsequently adopted by the parliament’s Permanent Bureau on 14 March 2017.[1] The SDP has been designed to address the main findings of the functional analysis, which recommended measures aimed at setting up an effective institutional and functional structure of the Parliament's Secretariat, adapted to the parliament's increasing demand for support and assistance.

To achieve the SDP’s specific objectives and ensure the development and implementation of a structural and functional model of the secretariat which responds effectively to the need for assistance of MPs, implying the use of a change process, a clear vision, strong executive support, and well-prepared staff is required.

To guide the team members involved in the institutional changes, it is crucial that managers who will oversee the process, as well as the staffers themselves possess the necessary skills sets and have a good understanding of their role in the execution of the new or improved management processes and systems.

In this regards, the UNDP Project “Strengthening Parliamentary Governance in Moldova” (SPGM) is seeking to hire a specialized company (hereinafter Service Provider) to develop and deliver training sessions on Results-based Management (RBM) for secretariat of parliament.
