The overall objective of this assignment was to assist the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in the implementation of an integrated and robust accounting and financial control systems for the FGN with inter-agency sharing of financial information and timely provision of reliable financial information to support accountability in public financial resources.
The Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS) is a component of World Bank Economic Reforms and Governance Project (ERGP) that involves several agencies which share financial management information. The FGN has constituted a Steering Committee which is supported by a Core Group. While the project governance structure is in place and GIFMIS acquisition plan has been finalised, the overall scoping of the project is being worked on.
In order to implement the GIFMIS, we were contracted to review its processes, identify the user requirements of all participating agencies and develop the specifications for the functional requirements of the system. GIFMIS, based on Oracle Financials software, is now operational. More information can be found at the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation website.
