Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform
ROMANIA - Country Specific Programmes for Capacity building
Activity in 2012
The Romanian Association of Municipalities and Romanian Association of communes requested support from the Centre of Expertise to obtain accreditation for delivering ELoGE. Technical assistance was provided to adapt the instruments for assessing the quality of local governance to Romanian conditions.
The team from ACOR translated the documents (questionnaire evaluation benchmark, Accrediting Commission regulations and criteria for award) and, together with AMR adapted them to the Romanian language and legislative context. Five cities and five villages were selected for pilot testing the evaluation benchmark (the first three communes are Luncaviţa - Tulcea county, Stefan cel mare – Calarasi county, Vulcana bai, Dambovita county). Pilot testing started in December 20.
