Translation and Interpretation Specialist/Manager/Advisor(1761 Views)
The Afghanistan Public Financial Management (APFM) project will help Afghanistan improve its fiscal sustainability and enable delivery of essential services to its citizens by strengthening the Government’s ability at the national and sub-national levels to mobilize domestic revenue and more effectively manage its budget. Specifically, APFM’s objectives are to: 1) strengthen Government’s capacity to forecast, increase, and manage domestic revenue by increasing essential capacities across Government institutions, by increasing payment compliance across revenue collecting units, and by ensuring that those receipts are promptly transferred to the treasury account; and 2) strengthen budget planning, execution, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting capacities of national and sub-national Government entities, and improve communication and coordination between national and sub-national level Government entities.
