The Fundación Internacional y para Iberoamérica de Administración y Políticas Públicas (FIIAPP) is a public sector foundation that manages international cooperation projects within the 2030 Agenda framework. With a mandate based on the exchange of experiences between the public Administrations of different countries, it is a means for Spanish and European cooperation efforts. The Foundation works to support governments by focussing on international cooperation projects, assisting public policy reform processes shaped by partner country priorities.
To ensure efficient and effective implementation of ARAP Programme, the EU appointed FIIAPP to manage the budget and overall coordination of the programme. FIIAPP is responsible for working closely with stakeholder organisations on the strategy planning and delivery of the programme.
This line of work is very much in line with the Government of Ghana’s strategic outlook on digitisation.
Coordination and Management
FIIAPP has been appointed by the EU to implement the ARAP programme.
Its management team (Madrid) and coordination unit (Accra) lead the planning and reporting, technical assistance, implementation and financial management, communication and visibility, information and knowledge management, and monitoring and evaluation. It also supports coordination between stakeholders and other anti-corruption partners.
Most ARAP activities are owned and planned by stakeholders.
Some thematic areas, however, are led by FIIAPP. These are cross-cutting issues that are relevant to all stakeholders, which include some research, gender mainstreaming and environment-related activities.
