About the group
This group explores the lessons-learned from capacity-building on PFM in South Sudan, including findings from the EU Technical Assistance for Sub-national Capacity Building in Payroll and PFM (EUTAPP) as implemented by Ecorys. This EU-funded programme was designed to build the capacity of local governments to effectively perform their responsibilities regarding PFM and payroll, and specifically to support:
- Local governments—in meeting requirements of South Sudan's LG PFM Manual: planning and budgeting, financial management/accounting, preparing and submitting quarterly budget performance reports/financial reporting,
- States, to analyse current payrolls, identify county staff, separate state and county staff payrolls,
- County Administration Departments, to properly manage their payroll,
- Establishment and operation of County Transfer Monitoring Committee (CTMCs).
The first phase started in August 2014 and was extended until the end of August 2016, for a total amount of approximately EUR 5.5 million.
