IFMIS and Beyond

The World Bank in partnership with the Government of Rajasthan organized the workshop - ‘IFMIS & Beyond..’ with a view to providing a forum to State governments to exchange information about the latest concepts and practices in PFM, in Jaipur on May 24 - 25, 2018. The workshop was attended by 116 PFM practitioners including senior officials from the Government of India, officers from the Finance Departments of 20 Indian states – among them Additional Chief Secretaries/Principal Secretaries (Finance) from 7 states – and representatives of 9 national level institutions, such as the CAG, CGA, RBI, DFID, NIC and NPCI. This was the third in a series of knowledge exchanges on public financial management since 2014.

The topics covered were: public investment management; commitment control; e-collection and e-payments systems; direct beneficiary transfers; states’ experience of using NIC PFM systems; contract management; transition of work accounts to treasury; and the creation of a Community of Practice for PFM Practitioners.
