The Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied territories, Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia (hereafter – the Ministry) is in charge of regulating the healthcare system, social security system, labor and IDP issues in Georgia. Made up of different departments and agencies, the main functions of the Ministry are the following: the provision of good medical and public health services to the population; the regulation of medical and pharmaceutical activity in the country; the management of state pensions and social security; the protection of the rights of children, people with disabilities and other disadvantaged groups; the implementation of employment programs, carrying out labor inspections, the regulation of labor migration; the accommodation of IDPs and Eco-migrants; and the implementation of integration programs for returned migrants, IDPs, internationally protected persons and foreigners.
Regardless of the fact that the Ministry has been successfully implementing many reforms, there is a need to identify gaps and deliver results in the frames of reforms implemented. The brief description of its functions reveals that the Ministry’s areas of intervention are very diverse and has a multitude of programs to implement for beneficiaries with various needs. Facing multifaceted challenges, the Ministry intends to prepare and implement additional reforms in the years to come in the sectors of healthcare, social assistance, labor relations, and the integration of vulnerable groups.
Given the structural and functional diversity of the Ministry, it has been conceptualized that the creation of a model for delivering better public services (similar to a Delivery Unit used in different countries) will be instrumental in successfully and promptly implementing the planned reforms. For this purpose, the Ministry requires the assistance of an International Consultant, who will provide an advisory service in establishing a central Delivery Unit at the Ministry, by supporting the Minister in the process of delivering effective policy reforms in the areas which are Ministry priorities (Labor Rights and Employment, Child Welfare and Social Protection and Healthcare). The expert will provide direct support and advice in the process of establishing the Unit. The preparatory phase of establishing the Unit includes the following main stages: 1) Situation analysis for the establishment of the Delivery Unit in response to the requirements and needs of the Ministry, 2) designing the institutional framework of the Unit and preparing its functional description based on the Ministry’s needs, 3) elaborating the roadmap for establishing the Unit, and 4) the development of the communication and monitoring capacity of the Unit. The Unit will focus on ensuring delivery of a set of policy outcomes in the following priority areas: Labor Rights and Employment, Child Welfare and Social Protection, and Healthcare.
Duties and Responsibilities
The objectives of this technical assistance are to (1) establish the institutional framework for improving policy implementation and the delivery of government priorities on Labour, health, and social affairs, (2) facilitate high-level dialogue on the identification of priority outcome indicators and associated delivery challenges, (3) elaborate a monitoring system and indicators for tracking progress on policy reform; and (4) develop institutional capacities for monitoring and communicating with relevant stakeholders on progress. The Unit will focus on ensuring the delivery of a set of policy outcomes in the following priority areas: Labor and Employment (with a focus on youth and women employment), Labor Inspection and Labor Rights, Child Welfare and Social Services, and Healthcare.
