User Friendly Yearly Planning Template for Research and Planning Directorate
The yearly planning template was prepared by Research and Planning Directorate (R&P D) with technical support from FDM in order to assist different Research and Planning Units under the Directorate to systematically plan and manage their workload for effective and efficient policing through proper research and planning. The template was an outcome of several consultative meetings. Many staff from different Research and Planning Units as well as other police officers were consulted during series of consultative meetings at central, regional and district level. The planning template's major purpose was to move away from the traditional activity planning to goal-oriented planning. Based on the goal that the unit wanted to achieve in a year, the planning template would lay down the Key Result Areas (KRAs) and major activities as a sub-set of KRAs, followed by the work plan, approaches and processes used, and finally the reporting, monitoring and evaluation. This type of planning was assumed to bring about positive change as it would incorporate new ideas and views every year for meeting the emerging challenges and issues faced by Nepal police.
