We recently started a new project with the purpose of strengthening the public financial management (PFM) capacity of two Georgian municipalities, namely Gori and Ozurgeti. This program will cover the implementation of program budgeting methodology in practice, enhance the budgeting process, and improve two important principles of the budgeting system – transparency and accountability – in these municipalities.
More specifically, we aim to assist Gori and Ozurgeti municipalities in the elaboration of their FY2022 program-based budget packages in compliance with the latest program budget development methodology, and in line with public expenditure and financial accountability (PEFA) recommendations.
During the project, we will provide recommendations to further improve the decrees of the Mayors of Gori and Ozurgeti on the preparation of 2022-2025 priority documents, medium-term action plans, budget requests, priority documents, program budgets, citizens’ guides, annual budget execution reports, and the organization of public meetings.
This project is being implemented by PMCG under the Good Governance Initiative (GGI) program in Georgia, which aims to enhance the overall transparency, accountability, and effectiveness of the Government of Georgia, funded by USAID, and implemented by PMCG, as part of a consortium led by Tetra Tech ARD.
