Malawi: Govt to Buy K7 Billion New IFMS Software Following Loss of Network

Government has said it will buy a K7billion new software for integrated financial management systems (IFMS) following hiccups the current version is facing.

Finance ministry spokesperson Nations Msowoya said the new IFMS software would be bought before December.

“As you might be aware, the Baker Telly report recommended we buy a new software and we will do so this year before December,” he said.

Civil servants, public officers and government pensioners will have a delayed July salary and pension because IFMS experienced network problems for two weeks.

 Nyasa Times has established no civil servant has received a July pay cheque as on Tuesday.

Msowoya said Finance ministry officials and IT experts went shopping in southern Africa countries for the software.

“The government has engaged other software companies to help procure the advanced software for out IFMS,” he said.

He was optimistic the World Bank would bankroll the purchase of the software.
