Achieving Sustainable Government Resource Planning in Developing Countries


March 15, 2011

Doug Hadden, VP Products

Big day at the first International CIPFA Conference in London on trust and accountability in government.  Some excellent session so far with dynamic speakers. (Follow the FreeBalance twitter feed for more.) And, the opportunity to present lessons learned in FreeBalance implementations around the world.

The key problem addressed is how to overcome the high failure rate in government integrated financial management system implementations. The following presentation includes all speaking notes and extra slides (including screen shots from the Timor-Leste transparency portal).
