The Consortium led by B&S Europe in which European Profiles is an active member, has been awarded by the EC a new Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo entitled "Project of Support to the Parliament- Recruitment of a Programme Management Unit". The budget of this project is € 1.710.250 € and it is expected to finish in May 2014, with the beneficiaries of the project being the Ministry of Finance and the National Authorising Officer.


The overall objective of the Programme of Support to parliaments is to contribute to the consolidation of democracy in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Parliamentary institutions have in effect a strategic role in this process, which involves drafting of legislation, control of executives and fair representation of the population, all within the context of decentralisation foreseen by the Constitution.

The specific objective of the project is to ensure the coordination, the annual planning, the implementation, the monitoring and the reporting of the three axes of the Parliament Support Programme, as well as the financial and contractual management of actions implemented by the concerned institutes and structures.
