Case studies from Governments of India and the Dominican Republic
I had to adapt to the technology challenge of poor audio at the World Bank webinar earlier today 😉 The content was excellent and what could be heard was very useful. It is becoming clear to many Public Financial Management (PFM) experts that the key challenge to implement financial management technology in government is non-technical. This means that leadership, change management and capacity building have become more recognized as critical needs regardless of the automation solution used.
Of course, my view is that software designed for government – Government Resource Planning (GRP) from a vendor like FreeBalance with Public Financial Management (PFM) expertise who is part of the governance structure has far fewer adaptability challenges than alternative solutions (i.e. custom developed or software designed originally for the private sector).
