Project Description:


The main objective of the project was to facilitate integration of local governments into the existing web-based software application – Public Finance Management Information System, particularly E-treasury and E-budget modules. By integrating local governments into the PFMS, the budget execution and accounting operations are computerized and automated.

In order to facilitate the process PMCG designed, edited and published guidebooks/manuals. In addition, 14 video-tutorials were produced on various thematic sections in support of learning process for local financial officers. Onsite trainings were also conducted for local finance officers who were piloting the PFMS in several municipalities and self-governing cities. PMCG was working closely with the Ministry of Finance and its specialized agencies, including Treasury Office and LEPL Financial-Analytical Service (FAS).

Background information:

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Good Governance in Georgia (G3) program aims to address governance at local and national level. Since 2011, Management Systems International (MSI), implementer of the G3 program, has been working at the local level to promote more responsive, engaged and professional local governments. 

The G3 program has contributed to transparency and accountability in public spending. In ten partner municipalities and cities across the country, G3 promoted active civil society participation, raised the awareness of citizens of local government issues and promoted the improvement of service delivery as well as the functions of local government councils and executive bodies.
