It is widely acknowledged that fully functioning Integrated Financial Management Systems (IFMS) improve governance by providing real-time financial information that financial and other managers can utilise to administer programs effectively, develop budgets and manage resources. IFMS can also be a deterrent to corruption by increasing government transparency and accountability.
During the past decade, IFMS has been implemented in governments throughout the Africa and other developing countries with varying degrees of success. Where they have been introduced successfully, IFMS has improved public sector legitimacy, produced timely and efficient accounting for public resources, increased government accountability and transparency and opened the door for the audit of public accounts and strengthening of internal control in government units.
