Review Study on Mandate, Scope, Service Delivery Mechanism and Performance of Ministry of Education and Allied Institutions
The study was designed to be a comprehensive and investigative exercise to fulfill the key objective of appreciating the major shifts and changes envisioned, with regard to educational structure, governance system and service delivery approach. The study also compiled experienced-based evidences of conformity, discrepancies and future prospect in existing legal mandates, scope of roles and service delivery mechanism of Ministry of Education departments with special reference to the School Sector Reform Program (SSRP) and other development priorities of the government. In order to do so, the study used both qualitative and quantitative information. A rapid review of existing organizational structure to assess its relevancy in the context of SSRP was conducted to provide a clear roadmap for revised organization design of the departments as well as the National Centre for Education Development (NCED). Field visits and focus group discussion were conducted with the relevant agencies at central, regional and district level. Structured questionnaires were also used to assess the relevancy of the existing organizational structure and system of department with special focus on NCED.
