Local expert – Institutional development (Human Resources)

Capability, Accountability and Sustainability Programme (CASP)


  • Background

The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) is dedicated to making states and people safer through more effective and accountable security and justice. Since 2000, DCAF has facilitated, driven and shaped Security Sector Reform (SSR) policy and programming around the world

The Capability, Accountability and Sustainability Programme (CASP) is a UK funded programme of support to the Palestinian Security Sector. CASP will deliver improved financial and human resources management, policy-making capability, a more effective security sector complaints handling system, and increased internal accountability of Palestinian Authority Security Forces (PASF).

DCAF will design and submit a multi-year programme proposal to support the objective. In support of the outcome, the Technical Assistance programme will support interventions in four identified thematic areas:

  1. Planning and research
  2. Public financial management
  3. Complaints
  4. Human resources

Prior to the project implementation phase a three months inception phase will be launched on 1 April 2019. The purpose of the inception phase is to develop detailed methodologies to deliver the scope of work in the four areas: planning, research and M&E; public financial management; human resources management; and complaints. The inception phase will ensure that the rest of the programme (the implementation phase) is designed in a way to effectively respond to and deliver the expected outcomes. Importantly, the inception phase will also help define which of these desired results are feasible to expect within the scope of the programme, and which may require a different or more long-term engagement.
