The advances of the KFMIS are very important for the PFM reform of the Government of Kosovo. …We have been working with FreeBalance since 2000. We’ll continue our cooperation towards continuous advancement of the KFMIS in order to drive public finances in the way of advanced management so as to be comparable with PFM systems of developed EU countries.

Supporting Democratic Development and Economic Liberalization in Kosovo Since 1999

Since 1999, FreeBalance has had a strategic multi-year relationship with the Government of Kosovo for the development, implementation, and maintenance of the multi-language (English, Albanian and Serbian) Kosovo Financial Management Information System (KFMIS).

The FreeBalance Accountability Suite™ supports all ministries and municipalities, and manages the entire payroll of the Government of Kosovo.

The Government of Kosovo has achieved remarkable results in PFM reform with the KFMIS system being a critical component of the country’s democratic development and economic liberalization program. Kosovo has sequenced legal reform, improved governance, and achieved international PFM standards under difficult conditions. This has contributed to independence, IMF and World Bank membership, European Union accession processes, improving international assessments and increased recognition by global governments.

Kosovo’s latest PEFA Assessment shows continued strong progress.
