In his opening remarks, Deputy Controller and Accountant General in charge of ICTM, James Ntim Amponsah noted that, when GIFMIS implementation began, some Ghanaians were sceptical about its prospects. “But thanks to the unflinching efforts of many stakeholders, the project has made giant strides in Public Financial Management Reforms in Ghana during the first phase of implementation”, he indicated.

He added that, other funds like the Internally Generated Funds (IGF) and Donor funds will all be brought on board the system and so the need for the TTTs to take the training serious.

He said the expectation is to deploy the system to cover all Government of Ghana Funds at all MDAs and MMDAs. “That is why this training is important because it will sharpen the skills of trainers needed to undertake training activities during the roll-outs”.
