According to project documents, "the proposed program supports the Government of Punjab in transforming its Public Financial Management system by facilitating a simpler and productive business process and adoption of IT systems and tools for transparent and efficient service delivery.
Once achieved, these two outcomes will in turn, contribute to a transformational, long-term impact towards improved public resource management and increased own source revenue.

The proposed Program will utilize Program for Results (PforR) instrument with an Investment Project Financing (IPF) component.
The program supports implementation of the Government’s PFM reforms strategy, which has strong ownership of the Government of Punjab, as also reflected in its recent PFM reforms (e.g., introduction of output-based budget in pilot mode, citizens budget, simplification of pension rules, and revenue reforms) and extensive engagement with the World Bank and other development partners in related areas over past several years."
