Tajikistan: Support to Public Finance Management Capacity Building
The Republic of Tajikistan is benefiting from a period of relative political stability after the turbulent civil war. The country's economy is growing. Despite strong donor support, especially for Tajikistan's poverty reduction strategy, major institutional and capacity deficiencies persist. The Tajik government is intent on focusing its reform agenda on governance and institutional reforms.
This project is part of the TA effort to improve Public Finance Management, in particular dealing with Public Internal Financial Control and Treasury Management Information System. It will build on the work started by earlier EC projects and develop the legislation and institutional capacity for PIFC in the Ministry of Finance. It will help in the development of functioning Internal Audit Units in four line ministries.
In addition to deficiencies in legislation and capacity for the implementation of PIFC, there are problems with a low level of development of the Treasury's MIS. This Project will audit the MIS in place and assist the Tajik Government in elaborating an MIS Development Plan.
