Project General Description

This operation is an institutional support project designed to complement the budget support program and other donors' interventions, including the Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) for Public Financial Management (PFM) reform and capacity building. It aims at consolidating the institutional reforms initiated and led by the Government of Malawi through the Public Finance and Economic and Management Reform Program (PFEMRP). The project includes three components, namely: (i) strengthening capacity in revenue administration and customs service delivery; ii) enhancing competition, efficiency and controls in public procurement, and (iii) project management.

Project Objectives

The project's broad development objective is to assist the GoM in promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth through improved tax administration and procurement systems. The specific objectives are to: (i) strengthen capacity in revenue administration with a focus on increasing revenue collection and improving customs service delivery; and (ii) enhance efficiency, transparency and accountability in the use of public resources through public procurement reform.


The direct beneficiaries of the project are the Ministry of Finance, Office of the Director of Public Procurement (ODPP), Malawi Institute of Procurement and Supply, Procurement Entities across MDAs, and the Malawi Revenue Authority. The population of Malawi as a whole will benefit indirectly from the project. The private sector will also benefit from the project, through improved PFM (a competitive and transparent procurement system) and efficient customs administration.
