The programme essentially entails training and assisting parliamentary committees with technical resources to enable them to execute their oversight, legislative and representative functions. To this end, committees are capacitated in their sectoral areas and equipped with relevant skills so that they can discharge their mandate effectively. The programme also provides technical expertise to committees as well as financial resources to support activities of committees such as public hearings and fact-finding visits to government programmes and projects under their respective purview. The anticipated outcome of the programme is an effective portfolio committee system.
