Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective of the project is to establish and strengthen institutional capacity for the management of public funds in Central Finance Agencies and targeted sectors. The project has 4 components:

  1. Strengthening Tax Policy and Inland Revenue Administration Systems
  2. Strengthening Systems for the Public Funds Management Transparency and Accountability
  3. Rapid Response Facility
  4. Public financial management reform oversight, coordination and management

The proposed AF and restructuring entail the following changes:

a. Modification of the objective to reflect the expanded scope of the project and new emphasis on DRM;

b. Introduction of a new US$12.3 million component to scale up project activities aimed at strengthening tax policy and inland revenue administration, which is potentially a ‘game changer’ as inland revenue, which has great revenue generation potential, has little support if at all;

c. Consolidation of the PFM related activities into one component of US$12.7 million;

d. An additional allocation of US$3.0 million to extend project management and coordination support in accordance with the new AF activities and extended timeline;

e. Redesigning the Just-in-Time (JIT) Bank Executed support (Component 6) into Rapid Response Facility (RRF) US$2.0 million;

f. Adjustments to the Results Framework and Monitoring to reflect the changes in the project’s design; and

g. Extension of the project closing date from June 2020 to June 2022 to allow for successful implementation of the project’s original and new activities.
