Nigeria - Program-for-results to support the saving one million lives initiative : fiduciary system assessment report (English)

The objective of the integrated fiduciary systems assessment (IFSA) was to examine whether program systems provide reasonable assurance that the financing proceeds will be used for their intended purposes, with due attention to the principles of economy, efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, and accountability. The financial management systems were assessed to gauge the extent to which the planning, budgeting, accounting, controls, funds flow, financial reporting, and auditing systems and practices provide a reasonable assurance on the appropriate use of program funds and safeguarding of its assets. The team reviewed the lessons learned in implementation of the four health projects under implementation, in particular the results based health project. The results of the assessment, including work-through analysis and discussions held with the fiduciary stakeholders in government, conclude that while there are remaining challenges which will be managed through methodical implementation of the program action plan, the risks can be managed, and that the saving one million lives (SOML) is a perfect candidate for financing under the Bank’s program-for-results (PforR) instrument.
