Public Policy Development & Evaluations

Work on public policy (national, sectoral, regional or municipal strategies) and specific public authority projects in areas of infrastructure, process efficiency, government administrative capacity or human capital development; ex-ante and ex-post publicly funded project evaluations

Evaluations of public policy reforms and interventions, including EU Cohesion policy operational programmes and projects, and regulatory impact assessments of new government regulations before their introduction

Some of the challenges public sector organizations face:

  • Lack of expertise in specific sectors or areas of public administration: strategies for specific public policies, sectoral governmental strategies (e.g., energy resources, education, foreign policy), regional or municipality strategies (e.g., attracting investments, tourism, sustainability)
  • Need for transferring best practice as well as access to the know-how of international team of experts
  • Need for professional advice, additional resources or technical assistance in large government or third party funded projects
  • Need for external advice on developing the most efficient and effective intervention logic for public programs and unbiased assessment on how well goals of public funded programs have been met and which impacts created

Why hire consultants?

  • Consultants assemble a team of experienced field experts aided by professionals with proven project management track record to help develop the right and quality public policy
  • Consultants provide extensive practical experience gained in similar projects completed in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, as well as access to experience from international team of experts
  • Consultants assemble a team of experienced specific field experts selected tailoring to each project needs and bring knowledge of a number of methodologies, best practices, etc.
  • Consultants provide unbiased opinion and outsiders’ view on policy impact
HOW IT WORKS

Project idea initiation and funding identification

The public authority itself or together with consultants decides on project idea (e.g., need for specific strategy or professional assistance in a given project area) and searches for funding within its own resources or through various local and international funds 

Result: outlined project goal and funding opportunities

Project delivery

Upon winning a public tender, consultants carry out the tasks of the technical specification, and potentially additional tasks based on the proposal; recommendations provided are result-oriented and liaised with relevant stakeholders and with other strategic documents

Result: final document submitted to the client

Implementation by public authority

Implementation of recommendations can be conducted independently by the client organization or as a part of the consulting engagement

Result: designed public policy and recommendations are fully and effectively implemented
