The EU is committed to a policy of sequenced engagement with Ukraine and to a close relationship that encompasses gradual progress towards political association and economic integration. Thus Ukraine is a priority partner country within the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and the Eastern Partnership (EaP).

More specifically, the aims of this assignment are to:
1.Contribute to the reform of infrastructure cycle management, including planning, approval, procurement, implementation, maintenance and to the application of legislative, administrative, operational, and organisational improvements;
2.Reduce the procedural and administrative obstacles for efficient and effective planning, preparation, implementation and maintenance of infrastructure projects, with a special focus on transparency and accountability issues.
