PAPI is implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and its responsible party which is the consortium between the Center for Community Support and Development Studies (CECODES), the Centre for Theory Work of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front from 2009-2010, the Front Review from 2010-2012, the Commission for People’s Petitions under the National Assembly Steering Committee in 2012, and the Centre for Research and Training of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front—VFF-CRT since 2013. The Real-Time Analytics has joined the PAPI consortium since 2015 to provide technical platforms for PAPI data collection.
Since 2012, the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics has played a critical role in disseminating PAPI findings to provincial leaders through action-based research and policy advice.
Since 2021, the Fulbright University’s School of Public Policy and Management (FSPPM) has joined UNDP in ideating and experimenting the Citizen Powered Innovation Initiative (CPII) to promote innovation for citizens at the local levels in Viet Nam.
Over 13 years of the PAPI project implementation, UNDP has also partnered with different partners at the central and local levels in using PAPI data as evidence to inform and promote policy reforms and actions through various thematic studies and advisory dialogues with provinces.
