What are the key changes for staff who work in Finance?

  • Compliance with the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS), a modern standard of accounting.

  • Automation of financial processes with better controls: the system automatically checks for sufficiency of funds before a requisition can be made, payment process is initiated when a good is received in the system, payment of invoices requires entry of receipt and automated “3-way matching” of Goods Receipt, Invoice and Purchase Order Bank accounts, funds, assets, and other key data centrally stored and shared across the entire Organization Managers will have direct access to real-time financial information and other programme/project data and reports.
