Project General Description

The Programme entails implementation of policy reforms and institutional capacity building to institutionalise transparency and accountability in fiscal management in Zambia. It will contribute to efficient utilisation of public resources and improved fiscal governance. It will institute measures to ensure that the social sector budgetary allocations are actually spent as planned and not diverted to other uses, hence it will have direct positive impact on poverty reduction. Against the background of the Government's agenda for good governance, interim PRSP and the draft PRSP, the proposed Programme is designed to improve the level of accountability and transparency in fiscal affairs. The major components of the programme are, i) budget reforms; ii) domestic debt management; iii) public procurement reform; iv) public accounts audit; v) combating corruption; vi) decentralisation; and vii) institutional capacity building.
