CTG overview CTG stands for Committed To Good. With an ethical approach at the heart of all that we do, it is a description that makes us proud. Respect for the fundamental human rights of our staff, and those our staff encounter, is a cornerstone of our values. We strive for gender equality, inclusion and diversity, providing fair and equal opportunities for all. We take a zero tolerance approach to corruption and stay true to local labour laws and all local statutory requirements. In operation since 2006, today we are honoured to serve clients in 15 fragile and conflict-affected states assisting with disaster relief, peace building, humanitarian aid and development programmes through our specialised recruitment, HR management and operational services.
Overview of position Parliamentary Support Project – PSP II:

  • Somalia has embarked upon a process of institutional change within a new constitutional framework after experiencing decades of violent conflict. The provisional constitution of the Somali republic was agreed & endorsed on 1 August 2012. The 9th parliament successfully completed its term of office & remained a stabilizing force. The 10th parliament, which was now bicameral in structure, was elected.
  • The new bicameral arrangement has not worked well & has been a source of conflict. Based on an agreement that the 2 houses work together, new rules of procedure have been crafted to facilitate their cooperation. Whilst remaining as 2 separate institutions, they effectively started working as one institution of law making. This institutional arrangement would need further support.
  • The relationship between the federal & member state govt’s have started changing & is being continuously negotiated. This changing relationship also impacted the relationship between the legislative bodies, particular from an accountability & communications point of view. To succeed, both members of parliament & the Parliamentary Secretariats would require continues support. Apart of the Somali Federal Parliament (SFP), functioning parliaments exist in Garowe / Puntland & in Hargeisa / Somaliland.
