A three-day workshop for finance officers in the public service concluded on June 6th, 2020. Sixty-nine officers participated in the event.
The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform, with support from the European Union-funded Public Financial Management Support Project, collaborated for the workshop, which spanned three days to accommodate COVID-19 protocols. The overall aim was to refresh and address the specific roles and responsibilities in relation to the mandate of the Ministry of Finance.
At the end of the workshop, finance officers were able to explain areas in accounting and payroll processes and procedures, identify the challenges encountered in carrying out their duties, recommend solutions to eliminate or minimize identified challenges, and were updated on recent developments in finance and accounting matters of the government.
Mr. Joseph Waight, financial secretary, delivered an address to open the workshop. He expressed his support for the workshop as well as his hopes more in the future.
