AbstractA fiduciary systems assessment (FSA) was carried out to evaluate the arrangements relevant to the program and to determine whether they provide reasonable assurance that the program funds will be used for their intended purpose. Taking into account the improvements required and the agreement on the actions required to strengthen the systems (which are reflected in the program action plan (PAP), the overall fiduciary framework is considered adequate to support program management and to achieve desired results. Government of Maharashtra (GoM) has a well-developed budgetary framework that ensures allocation of adequate resources to all departments and programs. There is sufficient predictability in the availability of resources; however, to maintain transparency in GoM's financing, an exclusive budget line has been allocated to this program as is usually done by GoM for externally aided projects. Fiduciary arrangements in the sector are guided by several rules and legislations, including the state financial rules, public works department (PWD) manual, store purchase rules, Maharashtra jeevan pradhikaran (MJP) act, Zila Parishad (ZP) account code and the Bombay panchayat rules. The existing governance and accountability arrangements in water supply and sanitation department (WSSD) include the anti-corruption bureau, which enforces the prevention of corruption act, 1988; audits by the comptroller and auditor general (C and AG) of India, the country's premier auditor; right to information (RTI) act 2005; and WSSD's vigilance function and its grievance redress system (E-Pani).

Republic of South Sudan : Country Integrated Fiduciary Assessment Southern Sudan, Volume 3. South Sudan Procurement Assessment ReportWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2013-10-03)The purpose of this Country Integrated
Fiduciary Assessment (CIFA) is: (i) to assess the quality of
public finance management and procurement systems in South
Sudan; and (ii) to then determine the extent of fiduciary
risk posed to domestic and external tax payers by the
government's use of their funds through these systems.
South Sudan has great potential for further increases in
living standards, but achieving them will require large
improvements in public services, both in access and in
quality. In turn, Public Finance Management (PFM) and
procurement systems need to be strengthened in order to
improve public services; this will require linking spending
more tightly to policy objectives and strengthening the
operational efficiency of expenditures. In sum, strengthened
PFM and procurement systems are not an end in themselves
but, rather, the necessary means to achieving the ultimate
objective: improved service delivery in South Sudan. This
CIFA will be used by the Government of the Republic of South
Sudan (GRSS) and by the country state governments to inform
their design or reforms of PFM and procurement systems and,
in the case of development partners, to inform their design
or revision of technical and financial assistance programs
and projects in support of the reforms.
Kyrgyz Republic : Country Procurement Status ReviewWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2013-02-12)The Country Procurement Status Review (CPSR) report was prepared on the basis of the findings from a joint World Bank (WB)/Asian Development Bank (ADB) mission that visited the Kyrgyz Republic in February 2012. The main objectives of the CPSR are: (a) to analyze the Kyrgyz public procurement system, including the existing legal framework, organizational responsibilities, control and oversight mechanisms, capacity, and current procedures and practices, as well as how well these work in practice; and (b) based on these analyses and review, to identify key areas for improvement in public procurement and prepare an action plan for implementation of related revisions to the public procurement system. The report has three chapters: (I) Introduction; (II) Assessment of the Public Procurement System; and (III) Recommendations and Action Plan. A summary of the main findings and recommendations is provided in the Executive Summary at the beginning of the report. The detailed assessment of the Baseline Indicators is provided in Annex C. Additional Provisions for National Competitive Bidding under WB-financed operations is provided in Annex D.

In this context, the objectives of the CPAR have been defined as follows: (i) to assess the public procurement systems using OECD DAC Methodology, (ii) to recommend a monitoring mechanism to measure procurement systems compliance/performance and progress toward acceptable international standards, and (iii) to identify the areas of opportunity for improvement and recommend an action plan.
