CAF project implementation at the Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MISA) went through the second and the most important phase – Consensus workshop, which aims to get a consensus on the inputs provided by each CAF Self-assessment group member through CAF Questionaire. During the workshop, twenty employees from MISA, appointed as the Self-Assessment team, discussed detected strengths, areas for improvement and suggested actons for improvement . The Action Plan will be developed in the upcoming month based on prioritized actions for improvement. The ultimate goal is to raise the level of performance of MISA and its overall organisational development.
In two days of intensive work, exchange of information and discussion, we processed CAF criteria and sub-criteria. We were able to identify the systems of self-assessment of our work and our performance. Going through all the questions in the questionnaire, we thought of new ideas, gained insights, and articulated some evident actions, which is a way to move forward in a structured manner towards better quality processes because we will work on some of the activities more systematically. We look forward to the Action Plan, results, and further steps of CAF. We will apply for the External CAF Evaluation to obtain the “CAF Effective User” label..”
