LOTFA First Quarter Progress Report 2016
After completion of Phase I (July-December 2015), LOTFA has initiated implementation of Phase II (January-June 2016) for the hand-over of payroll management responsibilities from LOTFA SPM to the MOIA. Progress on SPM targets for Q] 2016 are considered to be "on-track." A senior technical meeting was held on 23 February to review Phase I and Phase II progress.
During Q1, the phasing-out of National Technical Advisors (NTA) within LOTFA was completed by March 2016. In parallel, UNDP supported the MOIA in developing a proposal for introducing 125 mid-level technical civilians onto Tashkeel, using the CBR mechanism. The proposal includes 33 positions for the MOIA Payroll Unit. This proposal has been presented to donors and vetted by UNDP.
The LOTFA Oversight sub-Committee initiated its work in 2016, and held its two first meetings in Q1. The work commenced with a review of the status of implementation of outstanding LOTFA audit recommendations.
