Good Financial Governance in Ghana

The Good Financial Governance (GFG) Program was to support the Government of Ghana in three focal areas of public finance, namely Revenue management, Budget management (PFM, with a focus on budget preparation), and Domestic accountability & Resource governance. As a crosscutting area the Program supported human resource development within the Ministry of Finance (MoF) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) with a focus on gender mainstreaming. The consultancy involved the delivery and management of advisory services within the GFG Program. Advisory work was delivered by a long-term expert and short-term experts in the form of technical consultancy services related to the above mentioned areas of intervention, training, soft skills, and in the area of process management.
Process management refered to improvement of decision making and business processes with the relevant partner institutions; soft skills include communication, management, negotiation, presentation, time management and problem solving skills, human resource development with focus on gender mainstreaming (including development of training curricula, guidelines, strategies, and procedures), and organizational development. The technical areas included support to the public budget formulation process and execution, tax policy, revenue administration, domestic accountability including resource governance, and external budgetary oversight. The long-term expert was responsible for the management of the pool of short-term experts and assessed the needs for consultancy services in close collaboration with the GFG program management.
