Support to Burkina Faso anti-corruption agency (ASCE-LC)
This call-off was part of the Sida Framework agreement on "Democratic Governance and Human Rights and Gender Equality".
Sweden supported a project towards capacity building of the Burkina-Faso anti-corruption agency (ASCE-LC) whith the aim of making available new tools through professional trainings and the development of the communication function.
As a new organizational chart for ASCE-LC was operationalized, it became obvious that ASCE-LC did not yet have full capacity for financial and accounting management and did not have an administrative and financial management manual.
In addition to that, ASCE-LC did not yet possess the full project cycle management capacities, particularly with regards to the formulation of projects.
These two identified weaknesses consitituted the core of FCG Sweden technical assistance to ASCE-LC.
