Project General Description

The Government of Malawi (GoM) has been reforming its PFM systems over the past decade. The Project builds upon previous the Bank's supported PFM reforms in Malawi and complements other Development Partners’ interventions. The Project will thus strengthen transparency, compliance and control in management of public resources and revenue administration.

Project Objectives

The project seeks to: (i) enhance transparency, compliance, and controls in the use of public resources; and (ii) strengthen capacity in domestic taxes and revenue administration. These outcomes are expected to be achieved through: (a) development of a procurement system, including manuals for in-service training; blacklisting and suspension of suppliers; provision of IT equipment/software and office furniture; review of the PFM Act, Treasury Instructions, and Treasury Fund Accounting Guidelines; staff training; and performance audit; and (b) excise tax needs assessment study, informal sector taxation study, and development of tax compliance strategy.


The main beneficiary institutions are the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development, Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA), and Office of the Director of Public Procurement (ODPP).
