Description The TA will help prepare a Public Sector Resource Management Project, suitable for ADB financing, which will assist the Government to lower the fiscal deficit by establishing a more effective and efficient fiscal administration through strengthening institutional capacity for revenue mobilization and expenditure management. The project will assist the Government to (i) establish an autonomous Revenue Authority, combining the existing Inland Revenue, Excise, and Customs Departments; and (ii) implement streamlined budgeting procedures and expenditure control processes within the Ministry of Finance. The consulting services under this TA will focus on the preparatory work needed to establish the Revenue Authority, as support for improved public expenditure management is being covered under a separate ADB TA.
