Don't let them FAQ you

@ VOL 29 ON MAR 19, 2019

Under an intriguing presentation titled “Don't let them FAQ you”, Lilit Midoyan will present their new project- an online FAQ mechanism on public services called Ask.

- What do you do in Armenia if you need to use a public service, such as registering property, getting a license or a social benefit? Well, you call someone who either knows how or knows someone else who knows how. There is vast information within the public about how to get things done at state and regional agencies. Unfortunately, though, this information is not available in a clear, comprehensible, coherent, transparent, and most importantly legalese-free fashion. These are the reasons UNDP in Armenia developed an online FAQ mechanism on public services.
