Millennium Partners has a proven record of delivering rapid and effective assistance in close cooperation with host country governments and local stakeholders to promote lasting reforms. Our philosophy is to empower local staff and the communities they serve to carry out the work of reform and development. Millennium Partners’ core principle is to promote country ownership and build capacity so that after we leave the work continues and the achievements are sustained.
This four year $25 million rule of law project known as the Feteh (Justice) Activity provides flexible, rapid response technical assistance to Ethiopia’s Attorney General’s Office (AGO), the Federal Supreme Court, and related government institutions involved in the legal and judicial reform process.
Activities include modernizing the court system, drafting laws, training judges and other government personnel, and working with an array of civil society groups to ensure reforms meet Ethiopia’s democratic and human rights aspirations.
This three-year project developed an advanced ICMS that connects judicial and other government entities, enhances judicial efficiencies and transparency, and produces sophisticated performance measurements and reports that promote system-wide accountability and public access.
Open Justice developed objective, reliable, and transparent Judicial Performance Indicators, using readily available information incorporated into the ICMS. Further, it facilitated the institutionalization of judicial performance oversight by refining the Law on the Disciplinary Liability of Judges and building the capacity of the Judicial Ethics Commission and Judicial Inspection Board.
USAID awarded Millennium Partners the e-Governance Activity in February 2020. This is a $10.3 million, five-year contract to increase the transparency of government processes and decrease the risks of corruption using state-of-the-art information technology (IT) solutions, effective oversight bodies, and external checks, such as citizen watchdog groups.
