USAID Kosovo Property Rights Program (PRP)
CLIENT: U.S. Agency for International Development
PRACTICE AREA: Governance, Democracy, and Public Administration
PRIME: TetraTech International
TIME PERIOD: 2015 to 2016
ME&A supported USAID’s Kosovo Property Rights Program (PRP) as a subcontractor to Tetra Tech. The project team conducted assessments of municipal real property processes and identified potential government-to-government (G2G) activities to improve service delivery by making property transactions in local governments and national agencies more efficient.
Carlos Beale, Vice President of ME&A, completed mapping of immovable property procedures. He prepared an analysis of municipal business processes and practices in local governments on the exchange of real property information among municipal departments and between municipalities, the courts, and central agencies related to land administration and property transaction practices.
In all, a total of seven municipalities in Kosovo were evaluated including the Municipal Cadaster Offices, Property Tax Offices, Civil Registry Offices, Urban Planning and Geodesic Departments, as well as Citizen Service Centers and other relevant local government entities.
USAID awarded Tetra Tech and its subcontractor, ME&A, this task order contract under the Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights (STARR) IQC.
