The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have established a Joint Programme entitled "Provincial Governance Strengthening Programme (PGSP),” using a pass-through funding modality. The PGSP Joint Programme aims to build the capacity of the provincial governments in public expenditure management, so that they are able to programme, produce, and execute credible budgets, through appropriate participatory and transparent procedures.
To provide incentives for the adoption of improved governance, the PGSP Joint Programme has set up a Provincial Capacity Development Fund, to provide provincial governments with a limited, but meaningful amount of discretionary resources for development spending. The Joint Programme also focuses on supporting and building the capacity of the central ministerial administration to effectively support and supervise the performance of the provincial governments.
The PGSP Joint Programme encompasses:
The PGSP Joint Programme is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MDTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.
The goal of the Provincial Governance Strengthening Programme (PGSP) Joint Programme in the Solomon Islands is local development, specifically:
The intermediate outcome of the PGSP is to improve provincial governance for development; that is, to promote and manage local development through the improvement of the effectiveness and efficiency of the nine Solomon Islands provincial governments.
To achieve the Joint Programme's goal and the intermediate outcome, the PGSP focuses on the delivery of a range of activities organized under the following three strategic components:
The commitment of the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to the PGSP Joint programme is reflected in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF)’s outcome 2.2 (decentralisation of governance and participatory decision-making are enhanced), and specifically outcome 2.2.1 (strengthened provincial governance structures and systems). The PGSP Joint Programme contributes towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goals through poverty reduction.
The Provincial Governance Strengthening Programme (PGSP) Joint Programme is implemented jointly by the the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) using a pass-through funding modality. The programmatic and financial accountability rests with the Participating UN Organisations, which manage their respective components of the Joint Programme.
The Joint Oversight Committee
A Joint Oversight Committee is set up at the national level. The Joint Oversight consists of representatives from: the Prime Minister's Office, the Ministry of Provincial Government and Institutional Strengthening; the Ministry of Development Planning and Aid Coordination, the Ministry of Finance and Treasury, the Ministry of Public Service, the Ministry of Women, Youth and Children Affairs, three provincial governments (on a rotating basis), two Participating UN Organisations and the donors as observers.
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA) of the PGSP Joint Programme. The AA is responsible for concluding Standard Administrative Arrangements (SAAs) with donor(s) and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Participating UN Organisations.
The Joint Oversight Committee discusses and approves work plans and budgets as well as any substantive or financial issues pertaining to implementation of the PGSP Joint Programme. The members assume responsibility for performing joint monitoring of PGSP Joint Programme activities. Decisions are made by consensus. Members provide regular feedback on its implementation and propose any necessary corrective actions to resolve problems, ensure accountability, and make recommendations.
The Administrative Agent [Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)] for the PGSP Joint Programme is responsible for the receipt, administration, and management of contributions from donors; disbursement of funds to the Participating UN Organisations; and consolidation of financial reports produced by each of the Participating UN Organisations and Participating Non-UN Organisations, and provision of these reports to the Joint Oversight Committee for onward submission to the donors.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
