Deadline for Submission of Applications for Municipal Support Packages for Improvement of Transparency and Citizen Participation Extended

  • Belgrade, 17 October 2018

Within the Swiss PRO Programme, the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities extended the deadline for submission of applications for the Municipal Support Packages for the improvement of transparency and citizen participation at the local level until 23 October 2018.

The public call was announced within the “Enhancing Good Governance at the Local Level” project, implemented by the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities, and supported by the Swiss Government through the programme “Enhancing Good Governance and Social Inclusion for Municipal Development – Swiss PRO” implemented by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).

The Support Packages for Local Self-Governments include provision of expert support and professional knowledge in the subject areas through training, mentorship, advisory support, and support to the improvement of existing or the development of new procedures and acts in local self-governments in line with the developed models and best practices.

Right to participate 

All interested towns, municipalities, and city municipalities in the Republic of Serbia have the right to participate in the public call for Support Packages for the improvement of transparency and citizen participation at local level.

The local self-governments that have already applied for the Support Package for the improvement of administrative efficiency and effectiveness at the local level (reference number PP-01/2018), as well as the Support Package for the improvement of anti-corruption policies at the local level (reference number PP-03/2018), may also apply for the Support Package for the improvement of transparency and citizen participation at local level within this Call, i.e. the extended deadline for submission of applications, but applications submitted earlier will be considered a priority choice of local self-government units (LSGU) for granting the Support Packages. Also, LSGUs that have already applied for the Support Package for the improvement of citizen participation and transparency do not have to submit applications again.

A total of six Support Packages will be granted.
