In response to the request of the Government of Ukraine, UNOPS opened an office in Ukraine in 2017, which provides a broad spectrum of services to the Government and the people of Ukraine. Currently, the office is classified as an Operations Centre (UAOC), with a portfolio of projects exceeding USD 100 million, in the areas of rule of law, environment, energy efficiency, crisis recovery, good governance, human resources management, procurement, and logistics.

The European Union funded Project ‘Support for Rule of Law Reforms in the Areas of Police, Public Prosecution and Good Governance’ (hereinafter - Project) has the overall objective of supporting the strengthening of policing, prosecution and civilian governance in Ukraine and to align them with the best European and International practices. On matters of operational detail, the project relies on the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) to Ukraine.

The State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) was established in 2016, with the mandate to carry out independent investigation of crimes by civil service officials, judges, law enforcement officials, and those officials working in the special anti-corruption institutions of the Ukrainian Government.

Since then the SBI has made progress towards establishing itself as a functional law enforcement institution with the ability to carry out investigative operations. In order for the SBI to reach its potential there are certain key steps that must be achieved. There is a need for more clarity in the legal framework on governance; strategic planning capacity should be enhanced; recruitment and training of personnel needs significant activity and IT and communications capacities must be developed.

Considering the above, the Project will support the SBI to operationalize its mandate in the start-up phase of its operations (2019). In particular, the Project will focus on three Result Areas: Result 1: Enhanced strategic planning and the SBI capacity to effectively carry out its investigative operations. Result 2: Enhanced capacity of the SBI staff to effectively undertake investigative operations, particularly those staff members without prior experience in law enforcement. Result 3: The SBI has established effective business processes for IT and communications necessary to carry out its investigative operations.

Taking a phased approach, the duration of the assistance is envisaged for one year, with the possibility for extension based on the needs of the project.

The activities under the Result 1 envisage the establishment of the multidisciplinary expert group (MEG) which will support the SBI in improvement of legislative framework and strategic planning and development to enhance the SBI’s operations, support the SBI’s Management with assessment, planning and delivery of its material and infrastructure needs. This group will be comprised of up to ten experts who will work closely with the senior management and specialised departments of the SBI. The team will include experts in organisational development, law, public finance, logistics and infrastructure.
