In Mozambique, a misalignment between the processes used by the Ministry of Planning and Ministry of Finance meant that the government and its partners often would plan programs and activities without assurance that an adequate budget had been allocated and could not track spending for a particular program. This brief describes HP+ efforts to help the government (1) develop a single information system that links plans with budgets and interoperates with three systems, (2) ensure data are accurate and easily retrievable, and (3) integrate approved budgets with actual spending for monitoring and transparency. To sustain these gains, HP+ trained and mentored staff to gradually transfer responsibility to the government.
