USAID’s Integrated Financial Management System Improves Municipal Finances & Services in Kabul Municipality

With implementation of the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS), Kabul Municipality (KM) and its 22 Nahyas have seen significant improvements in municipal affairs and service delivery, and it has strengthened transparency and accountability, as well as boosted municipal revenues

In early 2020, USAID’s Strong Hubs for Afghan Hope and Resilience (SHAHAR) program offered a comprehensive solution to the problems caused by the traditional manual system, hence, a feedback of poor municipal service delivery. These were addressed by implementing the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) in in all 22 Nahyas.

SHAHAR prioritized instal-lation of five essential modules at KM’s headquarters: Safayi and Business Licensing, Property Registration, Case Management System (CMS), and Work Permit, with two revenue-related modules being installed in all 22 Nahyas: Safayi and Work Permit.
