The Integrated Country Support Strategies" (ICSS) for Public Management: A very concrete objective: aims to strengthen in an integral way public management and institutional capacities for implementing the countrys own development goals as expressed in their development strategies/plans and legislatives mandates. Institutional Support
Advantages of the Integrated Country-Support Strategies OAS only responds to a government request OAS has no ex-ante prescriptions: ensures that projects in Program reflect the priorities identified by the government itself. The design of the Strategy helps governments define in an integrated way its goals and priorities for strengthening public institutions. By developing the big picture of TC needs, the Country Strategy Program allows donors to escape silos by channeling technical assistance and funding more effectively into an Integrated Program, promoting synergies, and avoiding flawed sequencing and/or duplication of effort. Potential tool to integrate work of OAS Secretariats Institutional Support
