IDEA International was given the mandate to support the Public Sector Capacity-Building Project for Services Delivery (PCDS) and the national institutions in the operationalization of the Organic Law on Financial Laws (LOLF), in particular the implementation of the budgetary reform whose main orientations as described in the guidelines of the UEMOA. Funded by the World Bank, this reform project will be implemented over the next three (3) years. It was in this context that a mission visited Niamey from 14 to 19 November 2016 to proceed with the actual start-up of the project. An ambitious work plan has been validated by the parties committed to implementing it in order to achieve the government’s desired results. The resident Head of Mission, Mr Christian Sissao, Senior Public Finance Expert, took his post in Niamey and will remain there for the duration of the project. In the first months, the team will focus on raising awareness of the content, will prepare a reform plan for 2017-2021 and will develop a three-year plan to strengthen the capacity for public finance management.
