Resource Mobilization and Institutional Capacity Building Support Project (PAMOCI) seeks, firstly, to build the technical and human capacity of the tax and customs administration and the EITI-Togo Technical Secretariat in order to increase domestic revenue in a sustainable manner and strengthen transparency in extractive industries. Secondly, it seeks to improve public expenditure efficiency by transposing WAEMU Guidelines on Public Finance Management (PFM) and to build the institutional capacity of actors involved in the budgetary process. Lastly, the project will foster the intensification of results-based management and the implementation of gender- and youth employment-sensitive budgeting. The project comprises three components, namely: (i) Improving Public Revenue Mobilization; (ii) Strengthening the Efficiency of Public Expenditure; and (iii) Project Management. The expected outcomes are: (i) an increase in tax revenue, from 16.9% of GDP in 2013 to 17% in 2015 and 20% in 2018; (ii) an increase in the share of mining revenue in total public revenue, from 4.8% of GDP in 2011 to 6% in 2015 and 6.5% in 2018; (iii) improvement in PEFA PI-12 indicator of a multi-year perspective in budgeting and public expenditure policies, from D in PEFA 2009 to C in PEFA 2015 and B in PEFA2018; and (iv) an increase in the number of young volunteers mobilized each year, from 1 500 in 2012 to 2 000 in 2015 and 2 500 in 2018.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to reducing poverty by creating conditions conducive to sustainable economic growth through improved mobilization of domestic resources and more efficient and transparent public finance management. The specific objectives of the project are: (i) to build, in a sustainable manner, tax resource mobilization capacity and improve the transparency and predictability of revenue derived from extractive industries, and (ii) to improve public expenditure efficiency following the implementation of reforms ensuing from the transposition of WAEMU Guidelines on PFM and the institutional capacity building of actors involved in the budgetary process by intensifying the practice of results-based management and implementing gender- and youth employment-sensitive budgeting.
The direct project beneficiaries are: (i) concerning revenue mobilization, the Togolese Revenue Authority (OTR), Togo’s Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and the Delegation for Informal Sector Organization (DOSI); (ii) economic and financial services, particularly the Permanent Secretariat for Reform Policy and Financial Programme Monitoring (SP/PRPF), the Directorate of Budget (DB) and the Directorate of Financial Control (DCF); (iii) other institutions involved in the expenditure chain, particularly the National Directorate of Public Procurement Control (DCNMP) and the Audit Office; and (iv) institutions involved in public policy evaluation, gender promotion and youth employment such as the Ministry of Forecasting and Public Policy Evaluation (MPEPP), the Ministry of Grassroots Development, Handicrafts, Youth Affairs and Youth Employment (MBJEJ) and the Ministry of Social Action and Women’s Empowerment and Literacy (MASPFA). Indirect beneficiaries are the National Assembly, the Ministry in charge of the Environment, Civil Society and the Private Sector which will benefit from EITI capacity building programmes.
