WORKSHOP ON GIFMIS FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS

Objective
s

of the Workshop

Implementation of Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS) is a
key priority under
Public Financial Management (PFM) reforms initiated by the Government of
Philippines. As first step towards implementation of the system, a Conceptual Design has been
developed during July


December 2012, which enunciates the need, objectives, scope and c
overage of
GIFMIS for entire PFM lifecycle including budget preparation, budget execution, accounting and
reporting and auditing. The GIFMIS Conceptual Design was formally adopted by the Government
through the Public Financial Management (PFM) Committee in

April 2013.

Further steps are being undertaken by the Government towards procurement and implementation of
GIFMIS. Finalization of detailed functional requirements specifications for the system, in consultation
with the respective stakeholders in PFM life
cycle, is the next crucial step towards procurement of the
system. Accordingly, this proposed workshop for ‘GIFMIS Functional Requirements Validation’ has
been scheduled by the PFM Committee’s GIFMIS Project Implementation Unit (PIU) with support
from Pri
cewaterhouseCoopers Private Limited (PwC India), which has been engaged through AusAID
to support the Government in preparation of the requirements specifications and bidding document
for GIFMIS procurement.

The key objectives of the workshop are:

(i)

to provide an overview on the scope and coverage of the
different GIFMIS
functions/modules
;

(ii)

to conduct a detailed review of the draft functional requirements specifications for

the
different

modules proposed under GIFMIS with respective stakeholders, and

(iii)

to obtain feedback on relevance and completeness of the proposed functionality an
d to seek
necessary inputs for finalization of the functional requirements for the system

By end of the workshop, it is anticipated that the scope and functional requirements
of GIFMIS are
validated by the stakeholders and necessary feedback is received for finalising the same.
