The National Treasury /IFMIS Department established an academy in 2012 to provide continuous learning for IFMIS users. The academy is now in its third year of delivering this training. Over five thousand public servants from ministries, government departments, agencies and counties have participated in the training.
IFMIS academy works through a structured competency based learning solution that links IFMIS department priorities and objectives to workforce roles, competencies and skills. The academy envisions becoming a government leader in the provision of professional development staff and IFMIS users.
It is responsible for the design, development and maintenance of course content. It creates online training materials, designed to approach learning, provide administration as well as conduct and manage trainings.
The academy continues to improve these practices to maintain excellence. For instance, it has brought in additional trainers, consultants, functional and technical teams and support and logistics staff to meet business needs.
Training is mainly delivered using face to face instructor-led training; the system provides a single point of access to e-learning delivery.
The re-engineered IFMIS is being introduced to replace manual process that has been in operation for over 30years.It is meant to enhance the level of acceptance of the need to automate process and to also explain where the system gets its legal foundation in the legal frame work.
