A total samples 59 (30 Male and 29 Female) employees were selected using availability sampling technique. The data gathering instrument were questionnaire and semi-structured interview. The descriptive statistics percentage, grand mean and standard deviation were used as data analysis method. Accordingly, the results revealed that OCAC was strong in financial management, process management, inter-organizational linkage and infra-structure. In addition, the critical analysis of each dimension of capacity assessment assured that OCAC had lower performances in organizational strategy, structure, human resource and program and service management. More specifically, OCAC was strong in possessing organizational strategy but it was less clearly understood and accepted among staff. It also had higher satisfactions of auditors in financial systems. But, it lacked adequate budget, timely release of budget and budget planning. OCAC had lower capacity in decentralization of power, decision making and problem solving skill among managements, lack of well-structured technological network of organization and poor empowerment of staff. Furthermore, it also did lack internal and external linkages with the stake holders. The finding also indicated that OCAC had critical challenges in lacks of infra-structure like; offices and transportation to and from work. It assured also that in program and services management budget constraint was the main drawback to run different programs and projects in the organization. OCAC had numerous weaknesses in performance as core elements of capacity assessment were below standards and were attained only at moderate level. Only very few of the assessment of capacity of OCAC were rated to be high in practices which put the organization at lower levels in its entire performances. Therefore, the findings revealed moderate to lower capacity in various dimensions of OCAC. Accordingly, to upgrade performances of OCAC, Addis Ababa city administration should decentralized its structure; establish new technologies, maintenance systems, upgrading inter-organizational linkages and undertaking infrastructure development. Moreover, further program evaluative research need be conducted on various components of OCAC.
