- A think-tank organization
Center for Change management is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that promotes understanding and nonviolent social change. The organization focuses on soft measures and policies that help various entities accept changes in society as normal situations and turn them into positive outcomes. The organization believes that strengthening the capacity of public administration, civil society, business community, euro - integration and investment in people are the main agents of change in society.
As an institutional grantee of the Civica Mobilitas community, CUP presented the current activities, as well as the results of the long-term work of the Festival "Civil Society Day".
Through this institutional grant, the CUP sets strategic priorities and provisions, strengthens and supports the thematic network of civil society organizations to monitor public administration reform, and also seeks to strengthen the local network for policy monitoring and institutional co-operation.
A strong civil society sector encourages social change in our country, with the aim of more transparent, accountable and socially inclusive governance at both central and local levels.
The data is the basis for convincing decision makers which issues are most important to citizens.
We held training on data processing and advocacy based on data for civil society organizations that work together to improve public services for citizens. This time we are organizing the training in parallel and live on Zoom
Within the training we had a practical part which consisted of data processing through: tabular structures of data sets, data organization and data filtering techniques and the second part, data visualization, types and tools used.
This training is part of the Work Programme: Improved service delivery for citizens with active engagement of the Assembly, supported by the European Union.
This weekend in Ohrid was held the last management meeting of the team of the Project for development of micro enterprises of women in the cross-border area.
At the meeting, the implemented activities were reviewed, the problems and challenges were discussed and how they were overcome. The achieved results were analyzed and conclusions were drawn from different experiences.
We disscused about the work of CCM so far in support of the public administration reform process, as well as the future priorities and opportunities for continuing the current cooperation. We will strive for professional, modern and transparent administration and for the development of digitalization as a common priority.
The CCM team met the Minister of Education and Science Mila Carovska and the Chief of Staff of the Minister Sanela Skrielj, to present the findings of the research on the educational process during the pandemic. The recommendations of CCM for improvement of the organization of the educational process in the next period, intensification of the digital work in all institutions in the education sector and the possibilities for electronic educational services were discussed. CCM and MES share the same opinion that modernization of education requires better digital skills of all involved in the process.

With the return of the public administration in their regular offices, protocols will need to be urgently developed that ensure employees’ safety, organisation of the work and continuation of remote execution of selected work processes. Learning the lessons from the pandemic response, further digitalisation will be pursued, supported by amended legal regulations to better prepare the administration in an event of recurring pandemic or future crises. Newly designed digital work procedures will be proposed to selected central institutions and scoping of the needs of these institutions will be conducted to ensure smooth transition to digital work with a list of priorities ad timelines for enabling digital processes. Selected institutions will be supported with proposed structures of shared platforms and assessment of levels of remote access, prior to a wider multiplication of the model in other institutions.
Several important electronic services will be developed within the Project that are often used in a citizen’s lifecycle, such as electronic enrolment in kindergarten, enrolment in primary school, applying for students scholarships and nostrification of foreign diplomas. Тhe development of е-services will contribute for providing better and simpler public services, as well as for the reduction of physical contacts with the administration in times of crisis.

Delivering services to citizens is the essence of the work of most government institutions. Tasks like paying taxes, renewing driving licenses, enrolling in schools and applying for benefits are often the most tangible interactions citizens have with their government. Improving accessibility of public services to all groups of citizens, including vulnerable groups (marginalized groups, ethnic minorities, persons with disability) is critical in building trust in government and delivering necessary structural reforms in line with the EU standards.
The focus of this programme shall be put on these services related to life events, more specifically 118 services relating to various life events, categorized in eight areas:
The activities in the work programme on improving public services largely encompass strengthening the capacities of CSOs for safeguarding citizens’ interests and their fundamental rights, thus contributing to one of the pillars of modern democracies – accountable, transparent, participatory, inclusive and effective public administration with high quality of service delivery for citizens. The work programme provides a participatory process, led by CCM in close cooperation with civil society organisations’ networks and competent institutions in order to identify policy measures to ensure access to all citizens to improved, more secure and more efficient services.
