UNDP / Liberia - Review of Financial Management Capacity, Setting up of Accounting System and Training of Staff- Environmental Protection Agency, Government of Liberia.
Liberia's Environmental Protection Agency required a structural review, particularly for its financial management. A project spearheaded by the EPA called the National Adaptations Plan (NAP) was instituted as a Green Climate Funded project to support Liberia’s medium-term investment planning for its sectors that were considered climate-sensitive. This project and its associated use of large funds made it necessary for an accounting system to be developed to simplify and upscale the financial management of the project.
Bewsys was tasked with the mandate of developing this accounting system. It went through the process of reviewing the financial capabilities of Liberia’s EPA. Based on this, a new system was designed which featured a web-based database monitoring system, a web-enabled integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) as well as the development of an HR management system. The Bewsys team also provided training and capacity building activities to support the EPA staff in navigating these newly built systems.
Success was recorded from the implementation of this new system as it facilitated ready access to international funding, developing and enhancing the skills of the workers at EPA, and overall, contributing to the aim of the EPA’s program to promote sustainable development through reasonable climatic activities.
Working with Bewsys has been a tremendous journey. We have not reached our destination, but we are enjoying the ride. Although it was supposed to be a corporate function, at meetings, we built rapport and trust with the consultants, and at the same time, they enhanced efficiency and collaboration.
Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Great service. I will recommend any day, anytime.
The Bewsys team worked professionally on our assignment and sought to deliver our needs with great patience and creativity. They are reliable and competent, and I recommend them for any assignment. Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Very professional in their work and client communication. I was really impressed with their ability to meet all their deliverable schedules and, above all, submit a comprehensive user manual. I will recommend them to other projects.
Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.
Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!
There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
