The Capacity Building Trust Fund
The CBTF funds public administration projects in the Republic of South Sudan to enhance government capacity to manage human, organisational and financial resources effectively. The CBTF began in 2004 in anticipation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement to support the establishment of government systems. A second phase of the CBTF was launched in 2010 at the request of the Government of South Sudan’s Council of Ministers. CBTF II will operate from 2010 to 2014 supported by contributions of $48 million from Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
CBTF II provides support in three broad areas:
1) Public Administration and Financial Management Systems;
2) Technical Capacity Building;
A Steering Committee directs the CBTF, supported by a Technical Secretariat located at the Joint Donor Team. BMB Mott MacDonald serves as the CBTF Financial Management Agent, responsible for procurement and fund management.
