Wednesday, December 8, 2010

The project will be carried out with the support of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the European Commission and the Kingdom of Netherlands, aiming at improving the accountability process.

"This project will strengthen government with the modernization and professionalization of state institutions and promoting citizen participation," said Camille Nuamah, World Bank Resident Representative in Nicaragua.

With the implementation of this project these results are expected:

The widespread use of a financial management system more accurate and timely throughout the central government making decisions for budget allocation and monitoring, as well as controlling financial flows more efficiently.

Optimization in cash management, treasury operations, public purchases and auditing.

The presentation of public sector financial statements in accordance with international standards, promoting increased confidence in fiscal performance by citizens and investors.

The strengthening of human resources management in the context of civil service reform.

Increased surveillance of public budget performance by civic groups resulting in a more transparent government and results-oriented strategy.

Greater transparency and public access to information which will allow citizens to monitor public administration processes.

This project will be implemented under the Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) and will be coordinated by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, to be executed during the period between 2011 and 2014, with a 40 year term and 10 year grace period.
