The Maturity Programme is a temporary technical assistance programme,that was established in 2014 to support the Palestinian Ministry of Interior () in its efforts to strengthen civilian oversight within the security sector and further develop its legal and institutional framework, organisational structures, processes and capabilities to facilitate civilian oversight of state security.

Implementation over the first 19 months has passed largely according to plan, with the expected modifications/design alterations incorporated as needed. The Programme exceeded expectations on delivery, as per all indicators in the programme log frame. The methodological approach has proved flexible, adaptive and fit for purpose. The Programme has begun to change the understanding, perception and practice of how business is done in the Ministry of Interior (MOI), with positive changes registered in all work areas, especially in business practices. These changes demonstrate the approach has merit and can be catalytic. Changes are manifest in the active and continuous participation of technical counterparts, and impact is beginning to be demonstrated in their organisations. This impact coincides with and boosts existing drivers of change, from a younger generation to enthusiastic leaders, both looking for new more efficient and effective procedures and acknowledging the need for greater governance and oversight coordination.

The Programme has been subject to a mid-term evaluation. This evaluation has identified the need for continued full-time international technical expertise for planning and designing appropriate interventions and ensuring high quality outputs.
