Afghanistan Civil Service Support (ACSS)

The USAID-funded Afghan Civil Service Support (ACSS) program was to enable the Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission (IARCSC) to build the capacity and reform the main service delivery ministries of the GIRoA both at the central and provincial levels. The program contributed to the achievement of the USAID/Afghanistan strategic objectives to build the capability of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA). Through strengthening the core administrative capacities of public sector institutions to implement the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) and by building the capabilities of GIRoA capacity building institutions, the IARCSC, was assisted in establishing itself as the preeminent instrument of the GIRoA in delivering capacity development programs required throughout the civil service work force within the governmental structure.
