Short Description:

Overall goal

The overall objective of the project Support and Expansion of the Treasury System (SETS) is to strengthen public financial management in Albania in compliance with the European Partnership and the National Strategy for Development and Integration.

The purpose of this project is to substantially strengthen the capacities of the Ministry of Finance (MoF), Line Ministries and large Municipalities to assure an optimal financial management of government resources and the expansion of the network between the MoF, Treasury District Offices, Line Ministries and large Municipalities.

The direct beneficiaries of the project are the MoF, General Treasury Department and 4 of its district offices (in Tirana, Durres, Shkodra and Korca). The GTD district offices cooperate with a large number of government spending institutions from the Ministries and their biggest spending units, as well as large municipalities - these spending institutions are also directly benefitting from the project.
