This course is designed to enable those involved with projects to become efficient and effective in the acquisition and utilization of funds for development purposes, using appropriate techniques and application of accounting and finance principles.

The effective use and deployment of donor funds for various projects demand careful utilization and timely reporting mechanisms to the funders. It is only when funds are effectively managed in accordance with the donor’s requirements will there be the motivation for reimbursement of financial resources.

Not all donors have extensive regulations detailing how you must manage their funding. In the absence of specific donor requirements, Its upon every funded organization to determine how best to implement their projects in a responsible manner to guarantee intended outcomes and overall Project success.

This advanced programme harmonizes accounting and financial management procedures in order to promote improved compliance with the financial reporting and control requirements of national governments as well as international finance institutions. Participants will acquire the competence needed for designing, implementing and monitoring an integrated project finance management system that is appropriate for efficient and effective delivery of the project objectives.
