CEPEX is a Special Unit under MINECOFIN,offering technical support services to government ministries and institutions in project preparation and appraisal, negotiations, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.
The support services that CEPEX provide include :
- Program and Project Management.
- Project Implementation Support.
- Project Monitoring and Evaluation.
- Supervision,and Advisory Services,including capacity building in those competencies.
The responsibility of project or program design, appraisal, implementation and monitoring and evaluation rests with the ministries and their relevant departments.
CEPEX comes in as a third party bringing in expertise and skills for better results.
Project monitoring and evaluation and turning around non-performing projects can not be efficiently done by an insider in the ministry or a project implementation unit. This job can be well done by a third party but who is competent.
Project and program monitoring and evaluation is an area where CEPEX is very instrumental.
The core business of CEPEX is to offer quality project and program support services in the entire project/program cycle.
