Abstract

The terms of reference of the study are appended below:-

a. Assessment of the relevance of Charter of OPF to the needs of OPs and to enhance the welfare of OPs.

b. Examination of decision making structure with a view to determine the extent and pattern of participation of stake-holders, as well as to assess the strengths of BOG to resist pressure from the political or bureaucratic interventions of high-ups.

c. Review of the existing administrative structure and organization of the OPF along the following lines:-

(i) Extent of autonomy enjoyed by OPF. (ii) Administrative procedures governing the relationships between HQ and Regional Offices of OPF.

(iii) Assessment of the organizational framework and composition of staff at the H.Q to identify : (I) alignment with the functions envisaged by Charter and in light of the decisions made by BOG; (II) duplications and deficiencies in the existing procedure to deliver the approved services and (III) budgetary implications for OPF as well as various programmes undertaken.

d. Modification and redefinition of the Charter of OPF to reflect major focus on the improvements of OPs’ welfare at work site, and as a return migrant. Need assessment based on discussions with experts and review of experiences of other countries.

e. Given that less than half of the OPs are members of OPF, measures would be identified to broaden its coverage and enhance its relevance.

f. Improvement in the financial management, evaluation, planning and investment policy of OPF as well as advisory service to help return migrants in the resettlement.

g. Suggestions of the staffing structure at H.Q and Regional Offices for efficient delivery of the services.
