Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

TA consultants commenced in Dili on 25 January 2010. TA implementation has suffered from a number of setbacks. These include: (i) UNMIT Malaysia police forces are billeted at INAP, resulting in serious disruptions to INAP operations and harm to INAP facilities; (ii) significant staff changes (including the Director and other senior staff); and (iii) INAP's internet connection has been inoperable.

Corrective actions were adopted in December 2010, to help meet the priority need of INAP to provide intensive mentoring support for the Director and senior managers so that they may provide strategic direction to the Institute. Additional short-term consultants, namely Advisor on IT Systems Management and a National IT Consultant , were approved in January 2011 to help Senior INAP management to formulate and implement the IT component of the INAP Development Plan.

Over the next 12 months, the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) will develop plans to help INAP with: (i) refurbishment and possible expansion of existing training facilities; (ii) engaging six additional trainers; and (iii) technical assistance to implement any organizational changes. AusAID is keen to ensure that any support in these areas complements and builds on the work of TA 7120.
