Burundi: African Development Bank supports training for public administration managers in implementing program-budgets

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has aided in the training of approximately 50 managers within Burundi’s public administration, reinforcing the implementation of the ongoing program budget.

The training sessions encompassed the formulation of work plans, annual budget preparation, quarterly progress reports, and annual performance reports. Additionally, participants were educated on the creation of a results-oriented public investment program. The training also delved into the identification of public-private partnership projects, pre-assessments, and contract negotiations.

Participants in the course expressed enthusiasm for the valuable opportunities to exchange ideas and share knowledge with the trainers. They believe that this interaction will play a key role in enhancing the governance and effectiveness of public management. Moreover, they aim to align public financial management with international norms and standards, implement a programmatic approach effectively, and reinforce the entire planning, programming, budgeting, and monitoring, and evaluation chain.

Dieudonné Sakubu, Controller of Expenditure Commitments at the Vice-Presidency of the Republic of Burundi at the Prime Minister’s Office and at the Independent National Electoral Commission, hailed the training. “This new knowledge will allow me to better serve the administrations whose expenditures and commitments I control,” he said. He thanked the ministry of finance and economic planning, which had organized this training with the support of the African Development Bank through its Project to Support the Improvement of Resource Mobilization and the Business Climate.

Several attendees expressed satisfaction with the utility of the training.   “Many of the challenges we used to face will be resolved thanks to this training,” said Rose Kelly Nahishakiye, a support officer at the Burundi Development Agency.

Gérard Manariyo, an officer at the Agency for the Support of Public-Private Partnership Contracts, said that he had learned how to prepare tender documents and better develop public-private partnership contract award documents.

“This training has been very beneficial to the staff of the Agency for the Support of Implementation of Public-Private Partnership Contracts,” said its director, Jeanne d’Arc Igirimbabazi. “The content of the modules gives us hope. Applying this knowledge will allow us to evolve and better deal with the private consultancy firms hired by partners”.
