Description

The proposed small-scale capacity development technical assistance (S-CDTA) supports the government's priority to develop an efficient transport system and result-based management of the roads subsector. The proposed S-CDTA is included in the country operations business plan, 2014 -2016 for Kazakhstan.

The impact of the proposed S-CDTA will be improved planning, budgeting and service delivery in the transport sector. It will be monitored through integration of sector performance targets in the medium-term expenditure framework (MTEF) and annual budgets.

The outcome of the proposed S-CDTA will be enhanced institutional capacity of the MOTC to manage the roads subsector using a results-based approach.

The S-CDTA will have three main outputs: (i) MfDR principles institutionalized and operationalized in MOTC; (ii) Roads subsector results-based framework developed in line with national planning objectives; and (iii) M&E system developed to support results-based planning, budgeting and monitoring in the roads subsector.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed small-scale capacity development technical assistance (S-CDTA) aims to strengthen the roads sector management through establishing an MfDR framework that provides clear linkages between planning, budgeting, program and project implementation, and monitoring development results. It will help MOTC to (i) develop a results-based framework including outcomes and outputs with measurable indicators and time-bound targets, (ii) use efficiently allocated resources, (iii) monitor implementation progress based on a performance framework, (iv) evaluate performance against targets and (v) take corrective measures based on performance information.
