Modern Parliament for a Modern Armenia (MAP) project is designed to strengthen the National Assembly in its new and fundamentally enhanced role within the governance system in carrying out critical functions of law-making, oversight, and representation. With a long-term goal of enhancing the overall effectiveness of the Parliament as a policymaking institution, the project is designed to support the newly elected National Assembly to take advantage of the modern governance tools and mechanisms that are focusing on improved quality, transparency and inclusiveness of parliamentary operations and enhanced parliamentary capacity for gender-responsive policymaking.
The three components of the project are focused on the areas of Legislative capacity, Legislative transparency, and Legislative responsiveness. To that end, a three-stage strategy will be applied: (i) catalytic stage of needs assessment, strategic agenda-setting, and pilots of the designed approaches, (ii) full-fledged implementation of the strategic agenda, tested approaches and activities, (iii) evaluation of the implementation, policy recommendations, and project closure.
Nowadays, ICT technologies are part of any institution, and national parliaments are no exception. Parliaments are now more connected to the outside world, increasingly through two-way processes, where citizens are given more opportunities to get involved. And the trend towards greater openness and accountability continues: more parliaments are using open data, and more are turning to popular communication channels. In addition, the use of ICT provides several advantages for lawmakers to work and operate from any location. This becomes very important, especially in case of need to work remotely during crisis situations. Thus, properly designed tools for implementing e-Parliament functions are mandatory for any modern parliament.
For the implementation of the E-Parliament system, the project is looking for an expert to perform a comparative analysis of existing solutions and develop functional and technical requirements tailored with the local specifics for the National assembly of the Republic of Armenia. The expert will be part of a team, including international and local experts.
