Programme Review DP2
  • Recommendation
    • Level of aviation activity and availability of resources vary significantly between Sates
    • Balance is required to be maintained between Project Specific Activities and State Specific Activities
    • Implementation of NARAST Recommendations and preparations for USOAP audits are presently the major focus of COSCAP staff
    • Member States to advise on adjustment to priorities
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • COSCAP-NA and donors provide programmes to Member States based on SC priorities
  • At the subsequent SC Meeting CTA provides a report on the accomplishments of the programme since the previous SC Meeting
  • On subsequent missions to States CTA may note and follow up on the results of various programmes but there is no formal system to gather this information
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Capabilities of Member States within the COSCAP-NA programme vary
  • Some States participating in a particular programme may receive significant benefit from the programme
  • Other State may have mature safety oversight systems so may utilize a COSCAP programme as refresher training or to validate that their programme is compliant with ICAO requirements
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Some Member States and donors have identified the need to receive more feedback on the results of a particular programme
  • Results orientated information will assist the SC in deciding on priorities for the COSCAP programme
  • Where it is identified that States will not be able to fully implement the outputs from a particular programme, then COSCAP/donors could provide additional support
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • COSCAP programmes have limited resources so any reporting system must not impose an excessive administrative burden
  • COSCAP programmes are effective as there is a trust relationship between the Member States and ICAO
  • Feedback on the results of a particular programme may require some time, especially from States with limited resources
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Results Reporting requires strong cooperation between COSCAP and Member States
  • Three core areas identified – NARAST; Course/Seminars; and Missions to States
  • NARAST already has detailed Record of Discussions and Implementation Status Report which is reviewed at the Steering Committee and NARAST meetings
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Courses/Seminars
    • Letter to be forwarded to DGCA requesting completion of Results Report Form
    • Information will be gathered on quality of the programme, areas requiring improvement, addition support required and action to be taken or taken by the State
    • Consolidated report provided to the next SC Meeting
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Example from Dangerous Good Safety Oversight Course – November 2006
    • Mature State may report that they have a mature DG Safety Oversight Programme in place but some of the material will be utilized to strengthen their programme further
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Example from Dangerous Good Safety Oversight Course – November 2006
    • A less developed State may indicate that this is initial training to their staff and that they will adapt the Dangerous Goods Safety Oversight Manual for use in their State
    • Need identified for On Job Training or training in State for other staff
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Missions to States
    • A brief summary provided to the SC Meeting on results of the mission
    • Results report would not contain detailed technical information such as audit findings but include information on the action being taken
    • Eg. Audit conducted with National Inspectors on XYZ airlines, report sent by DGCA to air operator requesting Corrective Action plan; and follow up audit in 6 months
Programme Results Reporting – DP3
  • Recommendation
