With the support of NATO’s Professional Development Program (PDP), the CSB has been implementing the Knowledge Transfer Campaign in civil service institutions since January 2012.

Within the campaign, several workshops have been held to share the best practices of human resources management - at both the local and international level. In 2013, Human Resource Management Manual for governmental agencies was published and related HR workshop was organized for representatives of HRM departments of civil agencies. In future, within the framework of the KTC, we plan to carry out other projects to improve the Georgian civil service.

The initiative has gradually expanded to include EU-membership candidates and potential candidate countries in order to support the process of harmonisation with the EU. SIGMA started its operation in Georgia in 2008, within the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy and during this time SIGMA has been actively supporting the CSB in the process of reform within the civil service. The draft Civil Service Code and Draft Law on Protection of Whistleblowers were elaborated with the support of SIGMA. In addition, SIGMA experts provide valuable recommendations for the amendment of current civil service legislation. Within the cooperation, the seminar was organized on the topic of “Enhancing the Whistleblower and Witness Protection in corruption cases”. Within the technical assistance component, SIGMA has supported study tours of CSB staff to the Baltic States. The purpose of the study trip was to learn more about public service initiatives in neighbouring countries as well as practices in the field of civil service.
