Historique

The National Transformation Programme 2020 (NTP 2020) published in June 2016 was developed to help fulfill Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 by identifying the challenges faced by government entities and establishing targets and initiatives to overcome those challenges. For the Ministry of Transport, nine strategic objectives, 16 initiatives and 15 targets along with their Key Performance Indicators for 2020 have been defined with a main focus on developing an integrated strategy for transport sector and its governance structure, improving the legislative environment for the transportation sector, improving transport safety and efficiency, and increasing the private sector participation in financing and operating transportation projects to contribute to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of government spending as well as to increasing the self-funding of the Ministry of Transport.

The operating model of the NTP 2020 foresees that initiatives will be reviewed and evaluated and their adequacy and performance will be measured regularly throughout the duration of the programme. The decision no. 362 of the Council of Ministers dated 6 June 2016(G) / 1 Ramadan 1437(H) instructed the Ministries and other government agencies to implement their initiatives set forth in the NTP 2020 and to rise to the Council for Economic and Development Affairs (CEDA) any difficulties or obstacles that might hamper their development. The NTP mechanism, therefore, includes the following phases:

  • Development of detailed plans and time frames for the implementation of each initiative and the identification of human, financial and legislative requirements.
  • Publication of targets and outcomes with regular reports provided to the National Center for Performance Management ("Adaa").
  • Periodic audits, monitoring, and follow-up to ensure the continuous improvement and progress toward initiatives' targets and the strategic objectives of the NTP.

Against this backdrop, the Ministry of Transport underwent a restructuring process in August 2016 to be better aligned with the requirements of the implementation of the Vision 2030 and the NTP 2020.

The tasks related to both the NTP 2020 and NTS initiatives require a high level of coordination among Ministry of Transport (MOT) departments and with other government agencies and demand additional specialized knowledge to support the strategic planning department and other concerned MOT entities.  Due to the new context of the Vision 2030 and the current need for MOT to focus on the implementation of the NTP 2020 initiatives and a general delay with the implementation of actions from NTS, the activities as planned in the last UNDP Project Substantive Revision had to be adapted in 2017.  In order to properly finalize the project in this new context, the duration needs to be extended beyond the planned one.

a)  Within Vision 2030, the Ministry of Transport, nine strategic objectives, 16 initiatives and 15 targets along with their Key Performance Indicators for 2020 have been defined with the main focus on developing an integrated strategy for transport sector and its governance structure, improving the legislative environment for the transportation sector, improving transport safety and efficiency, and increasing the private sector participation in financing and operating transportation projects to contribute to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of government spending as well as to increasing the self-funding of the Ministry of Transport
