The World Bank has availed $20 million to finance Zimbabwe's Public Financial Management Enhancement Project meant to improve transparency and accountability in Government finances.

In a statement, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development said the project would involve procurement of goods (supply of information technology equipment and office furniture to be procured using international bidding and shopping) and consulting services.

It said the consulting services would be procured competitively by short-listing consultancy firms using quality and cost-based selection, least cost selection and short-listing of individual consultants.

“The overall development objective of the project is to improve control, transparency and accountability, and oversight of public resources in Zimbabwe.The project will have five components: Financial management and accounting ($6,8 million); enhance effectiveness of internal controls and internal audit ($3,2 million); enhance accountability through strengthening of external audit ($5 million); strengthening the demand side of transparency and accountability ($3 million); and public financial management ($2 million),” reads part of the statement.

The main beneficiaries to the project are the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (the accountant general department, budget division, and the internal audit units), Office of the Auditor General, financial management units in Government, provincial and district authorities, and the legislature (Parliament).

It is hoped that the above beneficiaries would benefit in strengthening their oversight responsibilities in the area of public financial management. “Procurement of goods, works and non-consulting services will be in accordance with the World Bank Rules of Procedures for the Procurement of Goods and Works (January 2011 edition, revised July 2014).

Bidding documents are presently available and interested bidders may obtain further information and should confirm their interest by contacting the accountant general in the Ministry of Finance.

They will use it to pay the disgruntled army and police force to keep them happy and aligned with the regime, the majority of peaceful people will be intimidated, terrorised, beaten, and incarcerated by said appeased forces. Zimbabwe weeps and bleeds and the world does nothing.

I can not believe that the world banks eyes are open, the rest of the world knows that the cronies will all benefit more than the starving masses, absolutely gob smacked.

I cannot understand why they keep these people in power by giving them money when they are clearly miss managing it!! I can only think that someone besides the zim government is profiting from the the rape and pillaging going on in Zim.

I am utterly amazed at this..... The amount of money taken out of the Reserve Bank by the big shots in Zim is out of line and happens often. You can bet your bottom dollar this will not go to the people of Zimbabawe.....no doubt it will end up in the private coffers of the so called "leaders" of the country...as if they have not already stolen too much bringinging the country to its knees. They have stolen white Farmers farms for not a cent....kicked them off or murdered them and then you give them more money....ludicrous.....you should rather haven given this to Aid Agencies who will see that the people who need help most get it !!!

I am amazed that they have been given this huge amount of money (God knows they need it) but with the Governer of the Reserve Bank a year ago taken $70 million out of the bank is this a good idea ???

I like the idea that there is a Financial Dept, an audit dept and an accountants dept....no money in the country at all so why on earth does the world Bank give $20 million for this depts who obviously haven't got a clue and will just deposit into own accounts...do not see as it helps the poor and starving people of Zim at all...words fail me😠😠😠

Just understand that any monies lent to ZanuPF will be for ZanuPF to repay. Future Zimbabwean governments will not be responsible for paying back these loans.
