2
Corporate financial management is
simplerevenues and expenditures are for traded
goods
3
Government financial management is much
harderpublic goods are usually not traded
  • Revenues are not market-based (taxes!)
  • Goods and services are not sold
  • Only costs of revenue are market-based
  • Establishing the value of services is difficult
  • Government accounting has no bottom line
  • Performance cannot be expressed in
  • Performance evaluation is hard, .but
    very important !

4
Government financial management remains work in
progress
  • Only basic issues have been resolved
  • Accounting tracks only costs, not values
  • It can detect outright fraud and management
  • But does not provide measures of performance
  • Governments have a myriad of performance
    evaluation mechanisms
  • elections, separation of powers, parliamentary
    debates, watchdog agencies, publication
    requirements, reviews, audits, ME
    requirements, impact evaluation, etc, etc...

5
Government financial management requires open
systems that can talk to others
6
Aid is large for many countries
  • All developing countries (150)
  • 1 of gross national income (GNI)
  • 8 of government revenue
  • Poor and small countries (50)
  • gt10 of GNI
  • gt50 of government revenue

7
1990s aid fatigue due to poor performance
8
replaced by the New Millennium Aid Compact
with strong emphasis on better, common systems
for financial management, procurement, and
ME
9
Aid has shifted from infrastructure to basic
government services
  • Old aid Dominica
  • New aid Rwanda

10
these require new aid management tools
that are more than accounting systems
11
AMP Overview
  • Web-based tool that allows a government to view,
    plan, and report on its entire development
    portfolio for the country
  • Integrates the most common development and
    management tools into one secure, team-based
    workspace
  • Encourages broad use by multiple government
    Ministries, specialised agencies, donors and aid
    effectiveness experts.

Coming Up - New Functionality
  • Integration with National Budgeting System
  • Bring together national budgets with aid
    management for more effective, efficient, and
    transparent aid management (i.e. FreeBalance,
    Oracle, SAP)
  • With the union of the two systems, AMPs
    managing for results function - the capacity to
    monitor and evaluate impact on multiple levels -
    will enable governments to track the impact of
    projects in the national budget
  • Integration with UNICEF DevInfo and GIS
  • Link national statistical data with
    international data on development metrics
    (DevInfo) in a Geographical Information System,
    mapping progress visually across the country and
    from national to local levels
  • Provide Monitoring and Evaluation data to
    policy-makers for analysis against national
    planning, and Millennium Development Goals
