CPA UK conducted an assessment of The Gambia National Assembly’s human resource capacity between 14 and 18 May 2018. The week-long assessment was aimed at understanding the current human resource capacity of the National Assembly, and to create a report of recommendations for the Speaker and the parliamentary leadership. The assessment included meetings and interviews with senior parliamentary and committee staff to ascertain current staffing levels against functional and best practice in parliaments of similar sizes and nature. At the end of the assessment period, CPA UK organised a training programme for parliamentary staff and National Assembly Members on the practice and procedures of the table office.
The assessment was conducted by a clerk from the Northern Ireland Assembly and was managed by a CPA UK staff.
