The International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP) is a public sector Foundation established under the Spanish State in 1998. It is among the members of the Spanish international cooperation government agency, working to further Spain’s international development objectives. With its headquarters in Madrid supporting local offices around the world, its objective is to help improve existing legal frameworks and strengthen the way a country’s public administration and systems are run, for the benefit of its citizens.
To ensure efficient and effective implementation of ARAP Programme, the EU appointed FIIAPP to manage the budget and overall coordination of the programme. FIIAPP is responsible for working closely with stakeholder organisations on the strategy planning and delivery of the programme.
Coordination and Management
FIIAPP has been appointed by the EU to implement the ARAP programme.
Its management team (Madrid) and coordination unit (Accra) lead the planning and reporting, technical assistance, implementation and financial management, communication and visibility, information and knowledge management, and monitoring and evaluation. It also supports coordination between stakeholders and other anti-corruption partners.
Most ARAP activities are owned and planned by stakeholders.
Some thematic areas, however, are led by FIIAPP. These are cross-cutting issues that are relevant to all stakeholders, which include some research, gender mainstreaming and environment-related activities.
