The original Project Development Objective was ‘to establish and strengthen institutional capacity for the management of public funds in central finance agencies and targeted sectors, however, it is revised now as to strengthen systems of domestic revenue mobilization, expenditure control and accountability in the federal government and selected states.
The project’s geographical scope (FGS, Puntland, and Somaliland) was decided through coordination with the DFID and the European Union (EU) and in harmonization with their programs of support in the PFM area, ensuring national coverage of PFM support. Such coordination, in particular includes:
- Public Resource Management in Somalia – PREMIS – (UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), European Union (EU); and
- Support for the Federal Government of Somalia to Strengthen Domestic Revenue Generation and Macroeconomic Management for Customs reforms (DFID, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and EU).
Coordination among key partners for PFM and DRM support to government is ongoing through government-led Pillar Working Groups under the SDRF, as well as through technical level exchanges to ensure comprehensive accountability and integrity-related support across Somalia.
