Research and Documentation

To buttress its knowledge management capacity, documentation remains a pillar of 3psmars actions. The e-portal allows members to upload, research and download an array of documents focusing on policy and management in the public sector, as well as on reforms, monitoring and evaluation,  and all aspects of development and policy and development programme sectors. As we,  through our the site generate knowledge materials, we encourage individuals government institutions and agencies, international organizations, consultants, students, teachers as well as academic institutions to upload research papers, policy papers, reports and technical papers as well as information on results stories. Most especially, 3psmars recognizes the residual knowledge in individuals, consultants, civil servants (local, national and international) and students. Therefore, apart from documentation from institution, we place emphasis on speeches, PowerPoint presentations, news and research articles and encourage as much upload on the site as possible. Our medium term expectation from this exercise is to become a single e-platform to host the largest volume of documentation on governance, public policy and management and managing for development results. The 3psmars analytic (blog) provides regular academic standard analysis in political economy, public policy; sustainable development policy and internationally agreed development goals and results based management, while the official blog, media centre and news pages will provide regular update and interaction on field realities and individual experiences on policy, management and results.  When consolidated, our pool of documentation will serve as virtual library and provide rare materials useful for research consultation. Our Forums will encourage sectionalized interaction by varying research subjects in policy, international development, public administration, policy analysis..etc while individual blogs creates avenue for free publication of articles for free and/or paid consultation.
