Five main beneficiary structures are covered, namely: (i) the Court of Auditors, (ii) the Anti-Corruption Commission, (iii) the General Inspectorate of Finance, (iv) the Directorate of Public Accounting and (v) the Executive Secretariat in charge of the State Portfolio. The project will also implement some activities that will impact the following structures, considered as indirect beneficiaries: the State General Inspectorate, the Finance Commission of Parliament, the Directorate of Public Debt, the Directorate of Legal Affairs of the Ministry of Economy and Finance and civil society through the National Union of Djiboutian Women (UNFD). These structures will be involved in activities scheduled and their respective staff will participate in training offered under the project.
