We collaborated with the elaboration of the project for the National Education Law. We had influence on the national policy for extending the School Working Day. We monitored the fulfillment of the Law of Educational Funding Media Source: Missions On Line Date: 14/10/2006


We participated on a preliminary law project regarding the reform of the Military Justice. We leaded the creation of the central network by Latin American Civil Society Alliances Program. We promoted the creation of a Congressional Budgetary Office Media Source: El Cronista Date: 07/09/2006 Media Source: Page 12 Date: 28/07/2006


We strengthened the Primary Health Care Centers at the Alderetes Municipality (Tucumán). Our Health program won at a global competition organized by the Global Development Network, competing with more than 700 papers. Our project about the allocation of Primary Health Care Centers is now being considered for becoming law. Through the “Municipal Leaders Program”, a network of 50 town councilors was built. We trained 26 political leaders from different parties.


We elaborated the first Public Subsidies Data Base We designed the first Emergency and Necessity Decree public database in the country. In order to improve public access to information, we continued monitoring the implementation of norms at the national level, but also extended the reach of our work towards local, provincial and international spheres . We edited for the fourth time the Legislative Directory. Media Source: Clarín Date: 13/10/2006


We started to transfer to the local governments of Tafí Viejo and Gral. Pico those Legal Aid Centers that were installed in 2005. We have been electoral observers for all the electronic vote pilot tests in Argentina. We managed to build the first consortium of companies and organizations to strengthen the provincial Ministries of Education . We worked with local organizations in the provinces for strengthening their capacity of incidence and monitoring regarding budget, access to information and education.


We developed the project “Education on Human Rights and Democracy” in which 480 professionals and students from public schools in Moreno (Buenos Aires) were trained. We participated in the Reform of the Organic Letter of UCR. We strengthened our bonds with the Coparticipation Committee and got further commitment to host the Annual Seminar of Fiscal Federalism for second year.

Pending projects, initiatives and goals : 

Pending projects, initiatives and goals


Projects and activities that were included in the Work Plan 2006 and could not be carried out: Project “Productive Development in Tartagal”. Due to climate adversities on the first place and because of a decision made by the consortium, its launch was postponed for the year 2007. Project “Strategic planning for the province of Santa Cruz”. We started to work on the project but, due to differences with public officials and political authorities, we had to limit our participation. Project “National Executive Branch Authorities Directory”. Lack of financial resources and different points of view inside the organization prevented us from carrying out this project. Project “Political Parties Directory”. Lack of funds again impeded our goal. Project “Strengthening of the Civil Society Organizations in order to influence on provincial institutions.” It was carried out in Mendoza, but not in the Province of Buenos Aires due to scarce partnerships. Project “Proposal for the strengthening of a Social Responsibility Program in Tucumán”. It was not achieved this year because of the lack of coordination with donors and local partners.


Non achievement of institutional objectives that were planned beforehand: We didn´t collect the projected amount for our Anti-cyclical Fund (CIPPEC’s budget keeps growing at a higher rate than its savings). We were not able to solve infrastructure problems (lack of space, telephone problems, among others). We neither advanced as desired in the implementation of processes and organizational policies. We did not reach the goal of having part time directors dedicate more time at CIPPEC.

Institutional Improvements

Relationship with Politicians: 

Relationship with Politicians We strengthened our link with the National Education and Defense ministries, and with two subsecretaries from the Chief of Cabinet of the Ministries. On the contrary, we were not able to develop a stronger relationship with the Justice and Interior ministries. We increased our contact with Ministers and Provincial Secretaries of State, through the Health, Education and Justice programs, as well as with majors and town councilors from all over the country thanks to the Local Public Management team work. We made a testimonial video in which 25 known political leaders give their opinion about CIPPEC and its work.

Relationship with politicians: 

Relationship with politicians We launched the Civil Society Influence Program, aimed at strengthening our capacities for articulating efforts with politicians. We also developed (and continue updating in a monthly basis) a Map of Politicians with CIPPEC’s principal contacts. We held more than 30 meetings with politicians through the “Training Program of Public Leaders for the Democracy” (ProLid) with the participation of E. Carrió, H.Binner, J. Nun, R. López Murphy, J.M. Urtubey, among others.

Organizational Management


Projections for the end of 2006 show equilibrium: incomes of $3.4 millions and outcomes of $3.2 millions (real data from October 2006 with estimations for the last two months). We strengthened the Project Management team: trainings and the incorporation of one more member. This allowed a better monitoring on CIPPEC’s projects, regarding its activities and budgets. Throughout the year, a great progress was made on the annual planning and budgeting system for the year 2007. We advanced in the direction of the establishment of internal policies and formalization of draft copies of some of the first critic processes.
