Results of Assessment of Public Financial Management Systems in AHs

U-LEAD with Europe decided to continue the assessments and cover a further 15 amalgamated hromadas in 10 oblasts in Phase II. This report is the final output of Phase II of the project “Assessment of Public Financial Management Systems in Amalgamated Hromadas”, implemented by the Institute for Budgetary and Socio-Economic Research (IBSER), in partnership with the U-LEAD with Europe programme, and a team of finance advisors of Local Self-Government Development Centres (from 2020 – U-LEAD regional offices) in Vinnytsia, Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Luhansk, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Kirovohrad and Rivne oblasts in the period from June to December 2019.

The key aim has been to support hromadas in their efforts to: build effective financial management, with better understanding of the existing system of public finance; increase their capacity to manage own finances; achieve strategic development goals; and become more attractive places to live and to open and conduct business.

In each selected hromada, the assessment looked into strategic planning, budget management including administration of revenues and expenditures, accounting, assets management, procurement, and systems of data processing and storage. Another important focus was on budget transparency and accountability.
