Czech Republic: Caritas Czech Republic appointed as the general provider of integration services
- New Type
Caritas Czech Republic has been appointed as general provider of integration services and assistance to asylum applicants expected to come to the country within the resettlement and relocation scheme for one year. No tender for the position was held due to lack of time, the Interior Ministry explains. However a tender is expected to be held for the upcoming years.
The main reason why Caritas is chosen is its dense network made of branches in dioceses across the country. However caritas intend to cooperate with other NGOs in the provision of integration services. Caritas will also become the general provider of money for foreigners´ integration this year, replacing the Interior Ministry. However it is not permitted to distribute money freely. The organisation will work as an intermediate link between various sub-suppliers (NGOs, municipalities) and the Interior Ministry to which all financial means must be invoiced.
