The near collapse of the world’s economy, dwindling global oil prices, recent high profile corporate scandals and recurring cases of corruption in finance management have highlighted the need for an effective and transparent financial management and audit system that would ensure appropriate allocation and judicious use of available resources for the attainment of project or organisation goals and objectives.

Good financial management is responsible for not only protecting, developing, using resources, pushing and maintaining economic growth and increasing income, but also managing effectively and efficiently all national resources. Integral to this process are proper documentation, reporting and retirement which project sta. and in particular, those in the finance section must take very seriously.

Financial accountability requires a demonstration to the donor that funds have been used for the purpose for which they were intended. The reference point is the original funding application and guidelines usually provided with the confirmation of grant aid and the contract or agreement signed by both parties. It is important to comply with the conditions and meet reporting deadlines to establish credibility and encourage confidence.

Owing to the foregoing, this training has therefore been packaged to enhance the financial planning skills of participants. Beyond this, participants will have their competency levels enhanced on how to make sure their credibility and accountability conforms to donor’s (or government’s) expectation by keeping proper financial records, retirement and payment mechanisms.
