AFS–Report to the Steering Committee on Work Program for FY18

With the program under phase I nearly complete, AFRITAC South (AFS) expects further progress on targeted outcomes across all sectors. Through FY17 capacity development (CD) initiatives aimed at strengthening economic institutions and empowering officials in the region continued to facilitate implementation of major reform plans and harmonization and integration programs with regional partners. FY17 has been another year with good realizations on a number of fronts. The Program Document for phase II, which was circulated to the Steering Committee in February 2017, and this report highlight the key milestones and outcomes achieved and the emerging CD needs. Most of the key milestones and outcomes have been met and independent assessments by development partners continued to assess favorably the center’s CD interventions.

AFS – Report to the Steering Committee on Work Program for FY 2016

AFRITAC South (AFS) will complete its fourth year of operations soon. In June 2011, the center started its operations with a reduced budget of about $40 million for the first funding cycle (FY 2012–16). As additional funding had gradually become available, AFS’s budget envelope increased to about $58 million in FY 2014, and the center’s activities were scaled up accordingly. In 2014, the budget cycle was extended by 12 months to include FY 2017.

AFS Workprogram FY 2015

AFS is completing its third year of operations. The center was opened in June 2011 with a reduced five-year (FY 2012–16) budget envelope of $40 million. Additional donor funding gradually became available. Responding to strong demand from its member countries, AFS successfully scaled up its operations to about $52 million as of now.
AFS’s capacity building activities are on course to increase by about 40 percent in FY 2014 compared with FY 2013, broadly in line with the scaled-up program for FY 2014 endorsed by the Steering Committee. Based on partial, preliminary information, performance under milestones has been good. Technical assistance (TA) inputs in more established areas—public financial management (PFM), revenue administration, and statistics––assisted the authorities to achieve important milestones and are now focused on more advanced stages of project implementation. TA on financial sector supervision continues to gather pace, and there was a good start in the new area of monetary policy framework operations.
