February 15th, 2016  

Led by Chemonics International, the USAID Afghanistan Public Financial Management project (APFM) aims to support the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) in its efforts to improve fiscal sustainability and enable delivery of essential services by strengthening the Government’s ability at national and sub-national levels to mobilize domestic revenues and more effectively manage its budget. As part of the consortium, Connexus is responsible for leading the Public Financial Management Roadmap II (PFMR-II) performance management team. Connexus is working with the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of the Economy and the Afghan Revenue Department to provide technical assistance in policy development and implementation. Connexus is also providing policy advice on expenditure proposals, including forward estimates, and is assisting with revenue forecasting integrated with macro data. Connexus is also supporting the work of the Tax Policy Committee and the High Economic Council in order to strengthen the government’s capacity to forecast, increase, and manage domestic revenues.
