CEPPS uses peer-to-peer exchanges and technical assistance to enhance capacity and build technical expertise in partner legislatures to strengthen accountability, transparency, inclusivity and oversight.
To support this overarching goal, CEPPS/IRI and CEPPS/NDI coordinate implementation activities, both in Washington, D.C. and abroad, that promote best practices and procedures in many critical areas, including legislative oversight, budget analysis, ethics, committee operations, staffing, constituent relations and library research services, among others. These activities target members of parliament and parliamentary staff to support the development of more accountable, inclusive and responsive legislatures, further strengthen legislative capacity and deepen relations among the U.S. House of Representatives and HDP partner countries.
