ORGUT supports public administration entities in developing countries to become competent drivers of change. ORGUT prefers working with, and through, existing public institutions rather than creating bypass structures. ORGUT’s national and international advisors assist public sector clients in turning decentralisation policies into tangible improvements for citizens and help bridging the public-private sector divide, exploit unique local potentials and create openings for civil society participation in planning, resource allocation and follow-up. Capacity development for technical staff, administrators and local politicians is crucial. ORGUT transfers managerial and technical skills and strengthens entire local government systems. Results-oriented management practises are promoted that focus on output and long term impact of interventions rather than traditional activity completion reporting.
