Rwanda Management Institute (RMI) is a Public Capacity Development institution established by Law N°52/2013 of 28/06/2013. It has legal personality, financial and administrative autonomy.
The creation of RMI dates back in 1963 by the Government of Rwanda with the Belgian bilateral cooperation under the name of « Centre Rwandais de Formation des Cadres » (CRFC) to train middle public servant officers.
After the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, the Government reactivated the training Centre and in 2001, it was restructured to become Rwanda Institute of Administration and Management(RIAM) and established by law No 25/01 of 19/04/2001 as modified by law N° 04/2007 of 22/01/2007. Later, RIAM was transformed into RMI under Law N°52/2013 of 28/06/2013 determining its powers, responsibilities, organization, and functioning as published in the Official Gazette nº 30 of 29/07/2013.
