The success of representatives not only depends on parliamentary performance but also on other multiple factors. And, that’s why our services include comprehensive support to the parliamentarians for the overall development in their respective constituencies by providing statistical information for the developmental initiatives, time-bound execution of projects, implementation of the government schemes and other programs undertaken at the grassroots level.
COMPASS aims to deliver 360-degree solutions to the parliamentarians and to act as catalysts of social justice.
Most MPs find it difficult to systematically create proposals for works under their Member of Parliament Local Area Development funds (MPLADS) and ensure the completion of projects efficiently. The biggest hurdles can be getting timely financial sanctions for projects & covering the planned gram panchayats within the correct time-line. This primarily happens because of 3 reasons; limited knowledge of guidelines, poor liasoning with a nodal officer from the district & poor tracking of fund disbursement/ project implementation.
This is where COMPASS help the parliamentarians and their services range from Secretarial and Administrative Assistance, Parliamentary Assistance, Constituency Development Programme, fund-raising & partnerships, media management & public relations, project planning & delivery.
