SPACE strives to operate a systematic management towards achieving its objectives and expected outputs, outcomes and impacts. As an integral part of this, it has decentralized its operational mechanism both at head Office and Project offices for reducing the supervisory and managerial spans of the Executive Director. SPACE, in the meanwhile, has formed Human Resource Management Unit, Finance & Administrative Unit, Implementation Unit, Training Unit; Research, Monitoring & Documentation Unit and Procurement Unit at Dhaka Head Office level. The units, except the Finance & Administrative Unit and Human Resource Management Unit, are managed and led by the Unit Chiefs who are directly responsible to the Program Director. The Project Offices are managed by the Project Coordinators/Project Managers (Based at Local/Project offices) who are directly responsible to the Program Manager (Based at Dhaka) and works under the supervision of the Program Director.
The Executive Director directly supervises the Deputy Director, Program Director, Finance & Administrative Manager and Human Resource Manager. In the decision-making process, SPACE has formed a Management Group consisting five members (Executive Director, Deputy Director, Program Director, Finance & Administrative Manager, Program Manager and Advocacy & Documentation Manager).
