Part Two: Organization and Management

Sound management and administrative support are key to CSD’s excellence in achieving its mission and delivering on its goals in research and program development. The emerging donor environment, particularly in the wake of the withdrawal of major bilateral funding institutions from Bulgaria, requires that CSD adapts its financial management. In particular, in 2006 CSD has been preparing its internal procedures for working under the 2007-2013 EU financial instruments – the 7th Framework Programme, the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), the funding instruments in the JHA area, etc.
In 2006, CSD worked with USAID auditors on a financial and operational survey of the Center. The survey reviewed the organizational by-laws, policy for dealing with participation by the Board of Directors or audit committee in internal control matters, codes of conduct and ethics, human resources policy and procedures manual, procurement policy, etc. The audit
made a contribution to upgrading CSD’s travel and per diem policy, voting procedures by Governing Board members on subcontracting institutions within CSD’s legal group, maintenance of time sheets, and a number of other management issues.
Accountability and transparency are the leading principles of CSD’s financial and administrative management. They are also a key to CSD capacity commitment to being the watchdog of reforms in Bulgaria. This capacity has been built through a number of channels:
• publishing independent, annual audit reports (since 1992; CSD’s financial statements and KPMG audit report for 2006 follow);
• performing audits of individual projects (since 1992);
• publishing annual reports (since 1994);
• uploading detailed information on CSD’s activities on its website;
• releasing information on projects and activities in the mass-media;
• publishing a range of print materials;
• strengthening of the consulting arms of CSD – Vitosha Research and Project One.

CSD is registered as a public benefit organization with the Central Registry of NGOs at the Ministry of Justice. Public benefit organizations are obliged by law to a number of additional reporting rules and undergo stricter financial and administrative scrutiny. In 2006, CSD employed 40 staff of which 33 were professional and management, including part-time consultants, and
7 were administrative personnel. The Center also works with a significants number of external contributors.
