SUNY CID Part of a Consortium Awarded USAID’s Public Financial Management II Contract

A panel of experts from South Africa and three counties in Kenya share experiences and best practices in county revenue automation.

This is imperative to the sound management of the public sector’s finances, cornerstone of good governance and a pre-condition for efficient public service delivery and economic and social development.
