Project Description:


Under USAID HICD 2020 Activity, PMCG was contracted by Mendez England and Associates Inc. (ME&A) to support Sakpatenti – the National Intellectual Property Center – to improve core processes and to establish a quality management system.

In order to achieve its objective, PMCG is assisting Sakpatenti by carrying out the following:

  • Developing Sakpatenti’s internal human capacity
  • Elaborating documents for the quality management system, including guidelines and job aids
  • Preparing internal human capacity
  • Creating Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) linked to measuring overall organizational performance

The KPIs will be linked to measuring overall organizational performance, while the operational indicators will reflect department-specific performance. KPIs and operational indicators will also enable Sakpatenti to measure its overall performance in the long run.

The primary function of Sakpatenti is to protect intellectual property-related policies, and that is why it is essential to have a well-structured and effective quality management system.
