Ensuring Public Project Efficiency in Latvia

European funded economic development projects in Latvia and other countries face challenges, according to Emils Pulmanis in Riga

12 February 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Emils Pulmanis, Deputy Director of the Project Implementation and Control Department at the State Regional Development Agency of Latvia, has authored another paper on public project implementation. His paper, titled “Public Funding and Ensuring Public Project Efficiency: Micro-Economical Perspective of the EU Funds Management Frame in the Republic of Latvia”, has been added to the PM World Library.

According to Emils: “There are a lot of evaluation and impact assessment of public expenditure and project macro-economic aspects (usually by impact on GDP growth), but there is lack of appropriate analysis of micro-economical level i.e. at the project level and project planning and implementation stage. Micro-economic aspects are important as they could show the efficiency of public expenditures and value of money for project outputs at certain input amount (investments)… Professional project managers in public administration play a crucial role in promoting and explaining the key principles of project and investment appraisal in their organizations, both to encourage long-term decision-making and to manage uncertainty and complexity.”
