U.S. Embassy Abuja Fiscal Transparency Innovation Fund: PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Through the Fiscal Transparency Innovation Fund, U.S. Embassy Abuja seeks to help Nigeria to improve budget transparency and to support civil society organizations promoting fiscal transparency. Objective: Raise public awareness and encourage greater compliance with existent fiscal laws and increase public demand on Anti-Corruption Agencies and Public Accounts Committees to act on irregularities/recommendations to deter future abusers. Description: Since 2012, the State Department and USAID have provided foreign assistance to help governments to improve budget transparency and to support civil society organizations promoting fiscal transparency. This work complements the role of the Fiscal Transparency Report. U.S. embassies largely manage these projects, which range from small assistance efforts aimed at training civil society and the media on budget transparency, to larger projects that assist government officials in strengthening budgeting and auditing processes. Programs that facilitate timely release of audit reports and promote access to simplified audit information for citizens, civil society and community-based organizations, media, and other accountability actors are encouraged. Program Component: Grantee will develop a project that will efficiently and effectively capture mechanisms for improved public audit impact in public expenditure and revenue generation.
