PMCG continues to actively work with its partner Kutaisi City Municipality to improve its program budgeting capacity and to ensure effective, efficient, transparent and priority-based use of public resources.
More specifically, PMCG supports Kutaisi City Municipality to define mid-term priorities, directions and programs for 2017 and to formulate and implement a needs-oriented 2017 program budget for the municipality.
Furthermore, PMCG will develop an evaluation and monitoring framework for budgetary processes, to institutionalize monitoring and evaluation processes with regards to the implementation of programs and sub-programs.
In addition, PMCG will assist Kutaisi City Municipality to develop a Citizens’ Guide to enable the city of Kutaisi’s residents to better understand the local budget for 2017.
As a result, the transparency of the local government will be improved and the citizens of Kutaisi will have better access to independent, reliable and balanced information relevant to the city’s governance.
