Ukrainian officials Tymofiy Motrenko, Head of the Civil Service of Ukraine, Oleksandr Demyanyuk, Head of the Personnel Management Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine; and Andriy Vyshnevsky, Director of the Center for Support of Civil Service Institutional Development at the Main Department of the Civil Service of Ukraine, are in Washington from June 11 to June 16, as part of a delegation for the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation's Project to Assist Ukraine's Civil Service Reform.

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s Project to Assist Ukraine's Civil Service Reform is designed to assist the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in its stated goals of improving its personnel management systems, press office of the organization U.S.-Ukraine Foundation informed ForUm.

More specifically, the project will be supporting efforts within Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to design and install more effective systems for rotating personnel between domestic and foreign assignments, the recruitment and placement of foreign service professionals, training, managing the performance of personnel, and strategic planning. The Ministry has already instituted changes to move towards a more merit based foreign service system.

The principal work of the project will be conducted by dedicated task forces established within the Ministry to develop concrete solutions to the problems identified jointly by Ministry officials and US project specialists. Members of the task forces will visit Washington (and possibly other capitals) to observe how their problems are addressed by the U.S. and other governments.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister has designated Volodymyr Ogryzko, the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, to lead this work within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Since the Government of Ukraine is undertaking a government-wide review of the civil service system, this project will be coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the Main Department of the Civil Service of Ukraine.

The eighteen month program seeks to engage the participation of senior officials of U.S. Government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of State, the United States Agency for International Development, the Office of Personnel Management, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Office of Government Ethics, and the Office of Special Counsel.

This project is being funded by the Fund for Democracy and Development (FDD). An initial assessment team, comprised of Nadia K. McConnell, USUF President, Jack Heller, Fund for Democracy and Development Senior Vice President, and George Nesterczuk, Senior Advisor to the Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, traveled to Kyiv in February 2006 to meet with officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the central civil service agency of Ukraine. The visit resulted in the initial scope of effort for this project.
