The programme (C2) has been divided into an inception phase, implemented from October 2016 through April 2018 and a roll-out phase, launched in March 2018.
The first round of participant’s selection was launched on March 1, 2018, within the Roll-Out Phase of U-LEAD with Europe’s Support to Improved Administrative Service Delivery. The Roll-Out Phase 2018-2020 focuses on creation and upgrading of up to 600 administrative service centers (ASCs), including the establishment of the information and communication infrastructure of the ASCs, to provide high-quality and accessible services to the population.
