“AGIS aims to streamline public service delivery nationwide by developing the relationship between central and local authorities. At the central level, this involves working with the ministries of health (MoH) and of general education (MoGE), as well as entities like the Public Procurement Authority and the Anti-Corruption Commission. At the local level AGIS currently operates in three provinces, with the expectation that the government will soon roll out AGIS-type support nationally.” – Crown Agents webpage on Zambia AGIS
