Civilian Technical Assistance Program (CTAP)
DATES: October 2009 - September 2011
PARTNERS: Ministry of Finance (MoF)
The Civilian Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) is an effort to coordinate and deliver technical assistance to Afghan ministries and government agencies that is Afghan-owned, demand driven, focused on capacity development, and accountable for effective results. The program gives the Afghan Government control over the recruitment, hiring, and placement process of technical experts – paired with counterparts within the Afghan Government to facilitate the transfer of skills and knowledge. Through technical assistance, CTAP aims to improve core operations necessary for a functioning government – such as finance, procurement, budgeting, human resources, policy development, and coordination among government institutions at the national and local levels. The program has an Advisory Board Meeting that convenes once a quarter and is chaired by the Deputy Finance Minister (Policy).
