Mali: ICITAP-Developed HR System Launched for the National Police

On May 9, the Director General (DG) from Mali’s National Police (PN) held a press conference to officially kick off the enrollment of all DGPN personnel into their new Human Resources system.  This system was installed with the help of the United States Embassy in Bamako, and more specifically, ICITAP, as part of their HR Reform Program to improve the Malian Police capacity to develop, maintain, and expand information technology systems in support of improvements to police operational processes.  The installation of this program and associated server enables the DGPN to automate their HR processes for the 10,000 plus civil servants currently employed by the NP. The DG and his command staff all participated in the enrollment process during that May 9th ceremony. This program was made possible with the help of an ICITAP Team that travelled from Albania to Mali for its implementation. The lessons learned in Albania through ICITAP’s work there are now being successfully exported and implemented in Mali with more programs and applications soon to be deployed in Africa. A great example of collaborative efforts between ICITAP offices throughout the world. In Mali, ICITAP partners with the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) on this project.
