STAR2 – Consolidation of Territorial Reform. Establishing One-Stop-Shop service delivery systems for Albanian LGUs

Detailed Description of the Project
The nationwide effort to introduce OSSH in public service delivery in Albania is driven by the strategic priority of providing “high quality services for citizens and businesses in a transparent, effective, and efficient way through the use of modern technologies and innovative services”; Concentration of front office services – as per the OSS model – serves this objective by promoting an inclusive and pro-active approach to citizen needs, by simplifying the gathering of information and promoting transparency and impartiality via the decoupling from the back-offices;
– One-Stop-Shop Information System – OSSIS – makes possible for citizens to access services in a more timely and better way;
– The citizens no longer need to go to different offices for a single process, but rather only access one office – OSSH – which is responsible to redirect internally their requests and provide them more services from a single point;
– It empowers municipalities to improve the quality of administrative services, monitor the services execution, shorten the execution time, increase transparency in the provision of G2C and G2B (government to business) services.
-It provides citizens additional possibilities for service execution tracking, providing feedback and receiving higher quality services in a shorter time.
