About the Project:
The overall objective of the project is to establish a network between the Central Harmonization Unit and cities representing the seat of regional centers in order to enhance the system of Financial Management and Control across local self-government units and ensure that the internal audit function in local governments in place, fully functional and supported and demanded by the municipal leadership. The project will enable more frequent and higher quality municipal audits by SAI within the budget cycle and to establish good practice in sub national PFM reform enforcement. Finally, good public finance management practices will be recorded by civil society and media and promoted widely. The project forms part of a larger scale UNDP portfolio aimed at advancing accountability mechanisms in public finances and complement a SIDA funded sector project in the area.
By 2020, governance institutions at all levels have enhanced accountability and representation to provide better quality services to people and to the economy.
