Final Report: Integrated Financial Management System.

Project Report | June 30, 2019

Emerging from nearly a decade of planning between USAID and the government of Haiti, the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) project engaged the government of Haiti to improve financial planning and public financial management by restoring, improving, and expanding its IFMS-related network infrastructure and financial management systems.

Because of IFMS support, Haitian government agencies had real-time access to expenditure data through the improved IFMS network. Entities can send and receive key data faster and make more informed planning decisions. IFMS installed the UXP, a technology developed in Estonia that enables peer-to-peer data exchange over encrypted and mutually authenticated channels. IFMS contributed to increasing transparency on tax revenue data by connecting the three municipalities with the highest populations in the country with the Tax Agency, also known as DGI (Direction Générale des Impots) to share information on taxes. Municipalities actively share information in real time with the DGI on property assessments and property ownership, and the DGI is sharing data on property taxes collected.
