Conclusions





Development of the Albanian integrated State Treasury according to the best
practices is a
complex task
, & Implementation of such wide spread changes
would require:


Government
commitment
and

management support

at the highest levels to
ensure that the change process is completed smoothly


Inter
-
institutions
coordination
and
user involvement

in system design


Start building
institutional capacity
and
technical skills

during preparation
phase


Development of
project management
and

technical support units

within the
MoF/Treasury for sustainability of implemented systems


Project implementation team must work as a separate group dedicated full
time for the implementation of the project


IT staff full load dedicated during the implementation of such huge and very
difficult process.
