PMCG is implementing the Westminster Foundation for Democracy supported Financial Oversight Development Project. This is the first step to work with the Foundation for preparation of the suitable training programme for Members of Parliament of Georgia and the staff members.
Start Date: October 2009
End Date: December 2009
Client: Westminster Foundation for Democracy
Development Partner: Westminster Foundation for Democracy
Description of the Project:
Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) is the UK’s leading democracy-building foundation established in 1992. Over the years, WFD has grown in strength and diversity, working to achieve sustainable political change in emerging democracies. Working with and through partner organizations, WFD seeks to strengthen the institutions of democracy, principally political parties (through the work of the UK political parties), parliaments and the range of institutions that make up civil society.
WFD launched a long term Parliamentary Strengthening Programme in Georgia. In the framework of this programme WFD contracted PMCG to implement its Financial Oversight Development Project.
Within the project, PMCG will prepare a comprehensive report for WFD with a detailed explanation of business processes in the state budgeting and the Parliament’s™ role in it. The purpose of the report is to help us to understand the quality of Parliamentary financial oversight in Georgia, so that a suitable training programme for Members of Parliament and the staff members can be designed and delivered.
There are six sections in the report:
- Background information on Parliamentary financial oversight in Georgia
- Effectiveness of the financial oversight in the Parliament
- Capability of Parliamentary officials and MPs involved in the financial oversight
- Achieving permanent change
- Information about the partner organization
- Research methodology
