To en­hance and ed­u­cate the ac­coun­tants posted in the ru­ral ar­eas that are serv­ing at the lo­cal gov­ern­ment and other au­ton­o­mous agen­cies, the train­ing on fi­nan­cial man­age­ment was or­ga­nized in the cap­i­tal last week.

The train­ing, aimed at im­prov­ing pub­lic ser­vice de­liv­ery through en­hanced fis­cal de­cen­tral­iza­tion, started to­day in Thim­phu. It is a first of its kind in the coun­try and the fi­nance min­istry plans to make it an an­nual event.

The fi­nance sec­re­tary Nim Dorji said that the main ob­jec­tive of the train­ing is to ed­u­cate the ac­coun­tants, mainly at the lo­cal gov­ern­ment lev­els posted in the ru­ral ar­eas and also other au­ton­o­mous agen­cies, with the ma­jor re­forms that the min­istry of Fi­nance has ini­ti­ated.

The ac­count as­sis­tants will be equipped with an up­dated knowl­edge on some of the new ini­tia­tives and de­vel­op­ments in the Pub­lic Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment Sys­tem.

The train­ing pro­gram is to ex­pected bring to­gether all key play­ers in the Pub­lic Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment (PFM) and up­date knowl­edge on some of the new ini­tia­tives and de­vel­op­ment in the PFM sys­tem like, re­vised Fi­nan­cial Rules and Reg­u­la­tions 2016, Por­ta­ble Emis­sions Mea­sure­ment Sys­tem ( PEMS), MYRB, Rev­enue and Ad­min­is­tra­tion Man­age­ment In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem ( RAMIS), e- Gov­ern­ment Pro­cure­ment Sys­tem and e- Pay­ment.

RAMIS is a web based on­line ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tem de­vel­oped in java en­vi­ron­ment to cre­ate an en­abling en­vi­ron­ment for tax pay­ers through the use of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy. It is the big­gest sys­tem to be de­vel­oped in terms of size and com­plex­ity in the coun­try.

An of­fi­cials from min­istry of fi­nance said that this pro­gram has pro­vided him an op­por­tu­nity to know much about chal­lenges faced by the fi­nance per­son­nel while car­ry­ing out their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties on daily ba­sis in the field, and gets op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss about the is­sues.

Dur­ing the course of the train­ing, the Royal Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion, Royal Au­dit Au­thor­ity and the Of­fice of Anti- Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion had also made a pre­sen­ta­tion to the par­tic­i­pant.

Around more than 500 ac­counts as­sis­tants was par­tic­i­pated dur­ing the four day train­ing pro­gram which ended last Fri­day.

One of the par­tic­i­pants said that as they be­ing a fi­nance per­son­nel face lots of chal­lenges in their daily ba­sis in the field but had lit­tle idea how to tackle with it but now by par­tic­i­pat­ing in this pro­gram had gained lots of idea as they got a plat­form to dis­cuss about the is­sues.

Mean­while, the open­ing of the Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment Train­ing: Im­prov­ing Pub­lic Ser­vice De­liv­ery through En­hanced Fis­cal De­cen­tral­iza­tion was graced by the Fi­nance Min­is­ter Ly­onpo Nam­gay Dorji last Tues­day at the Royal In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment ( RIM).
