In order to promote the Public Administration Reform in BiH, as well as its own activities, the Public Administration Reform Coordinator's Office organised a media promotion of the redesigned web site.
Promotion was held on November 20 2007 in the Obala Meeting point, Cinema Theatre, with the presence of the representatives of the institutions of BiH, the FBiH, the RS and the Brčko District of BiH, the representatives of the European Commission Delegation in BiH , the OHR, the OSCE, NGOs and Medias.
In her introductory address, Ms. Nevenka Savić, BiH State Public Administration Reform Coordinator, informed the attendees on the activities of the Office on the promotion of the reform and the project which resulted in the redesigned web site.Mr Andrew McBride welcomed the attendees in the name of the sponsors of the project – the Department for International Development of the Government of the Great Britain (DfID) and the National School of Governance (NSG). He expressed the expectations that the new website would increase the visibility of the public administration reform and the results of the Coordinator’s Office. Ms. Jagoda Matrak, executive director of the PRIME Communications from Banja Luka, the contractor of the project, also expressed her satisfaction with cooperation and the final result of the redesign project.
Redesigned website of the Office is intended for everyone; the partners in the implementation of the reform, as well as for the wider public. In creating the contents and during a development of the design, one step further was taken from the user site which presents only the work of the institution; it also has data exchange system. The website of the Coordinator’s Office offers the possibility of electronic communication with civil servants/partners involved in the public administration reform, in the sense of download of work materials in electronic form.
www.parco.gov.ba is one of only 20 web sites of state institutions, which have contents in all the languages and alphabets of the constituent nations of BiH, as well as in English language.
What makes the website of the Public Administration Reform Coordinator’s Office different from most of the other sites of the state institutions is the fact that employees of the Office administer the site and they do it every day. Together with modern graphic and design solutions, and easier navigation and comprehensive base of information from all the areas of public administration reform in BiH, besides standard options, the site offers to users the following contents as well:
- Base of projects from the area of public administration reform
- calendar of announcements of important events
- strategic documents
- regulations from all the reform areas
- Power point presentations
- links towards donors and partners in the reform
- information on the public administration reform in the context of EU integrations
- tenders and vacancies…
The objective is that contents of the website in one place will offer all the information on the public administration reform, and that implemented changes will motivate the bodies which do not have their website or are redesigning it to openly communicate with the public.
