Description

The project's broad objective is to support the recovery and development efforts of South Sudan through the effective implementation of the SSDP, 2011 -13. The specific objectives of the PFAID are to

(i) build and enhance transparency and accountability in the use of public resources through training, skills transfers in the OAG and MoFEP;

(ii) improve aid coordination; and

(iii) enhance the operational effectiveness of beneficiary institutions by providing basic office equipment, including ICT.

The project has four (4) mutually reinforcing components including:

(i) building state capacity and accountability in public finance management in South Sudan;

(ii) improving aid coordination and effectiveness;

(iii) enhancing domestic revenue mobilization; and

(iv) strengthening capacity for project management. The support will be channeled through

(i) large-scale training of staff in beneficiary institutions;

(ii) providing Technical Assistance (TA) and consultancy services;

(iii) providing offi ce equipment and ICT assistance to enhance the operational effectiveness of the beneficiaries; and

(iv) strengthening project management in the MOFEP.

The proposed operation is an investment operation financed by grant resources from the Technical Assistance and Capacity Building Window (Pillar III) of the FSF. The project focuses on four inter-related and is part of the on-going efforts by the international community, including the Bank, to assist in rebuilding the PFM systems of South Sudan. The project is designed to provide synergic linkages to the Bank's on-going Institutional Capacity Building for Poverty Reduction and Good Governance and other capacity building support provided to South Sudan.


Objectifs

The specific objectives of the PFAID are to

(i) build and enhance transparency and accountability in the use of public resources through training, skills transfers in the OAG and MoFEP;

(ii) improve aid coordination; and

(iii) enhance the operational effectiveness of beneficiary institutions by providing basic office equipment, including ICT.


Justificatif

The project is closely aligned to the South Sudan Aid Strategy (SSAS) 5, whose central objective is the effective management and coordination of aid-inflows into the country within a Government-led framework. The Aid Coordination and Management Unit in the MoFEP are responsible for implementing the SSAS. The Government attaches high priority to implementation of the SSAS, given the current challenges in managing and coordinating development assistance. The SSAS was formulated utilizing the lessons and experiences learned in the course of implementing the 2006 Aid Strategy. Consistent with the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the Accra Agenda for Action (AAA), the SSAS is guided by principles which include ensuring that the development assistance accruing to South Sudan is:

(i) Government owned and led;

(ii) aligned with Government's policies as set out in SSDP;

(iii) use Government systems, as much as possible including the existing institutions for public finance management (PFM);

(v) is coordinated and harmonized through sectoral mechanisms;

(v) managed for achieving results and

(vi) based on the principles of mutual accountability.


Bénéfices

This project will benefit the Government and the people of SS in several ways. First, the project will significantly assist in building the weak human and institutional capacity in the public sector financial management system in SS. Second, the project will contribute to promoting good economic governance and the fight against abject poverty. Third, the project will result in improved service delivery in the country arising from efficiencies in PFM. Finally, the project is expected to result in an increase in non-oil revenue thus availing much needed additional resources to finance the government's development agenda, as outlined in SSDP, 2011 -13.
