The Pakistan Institute for Parliamentary Services (PIPS) was established through an act of Parliament called the Pakistan Institute for Parliamentary Services Act, 2008 assented to by the President of Pakistan on December 06, 2008. The institute was created to promote research, provide training and to provide facility of information to the parliamentarians in performance of their duties. PILDAT as part of its project Citizens Periodic Reports on the Performance of State Institutions has undertaken an assessment of the performance of the PIPS. The purpose of the Citizens’ Report on the Performance of the Pakistan Institute for Parliamentary Services is not to criticize; rather help the citizens in making an informed judgment about the performance of the institutions run on taxpayers’ money. It is meant to both highlight areas of strength, while identifying potential areas requiring improvement. We hope that the assessment will also be useful to the PIPS in further improving its performance.
