The architecture of the information systems network is determined by the basic functional processes that public sector managers employ to achieve these objectives and the overall regulatory framework that underpins these processes. We therefore start with a discussion of these aspects. Overall Regulatory Framework The overall regulatory framework for operating the various component modules of the system network consists of the following elements: the control structure; the accounts classification; and the reporting requirements.

These may be drawn on a central account or a ministry accountdepending on whether control of bank accounts is also decentralized. The payment orders are thereafter paid by the bank. To ensure proper expenditure control, sector agencies are required to institute a system of commitment planning and control to ensure that expenditure does not exceed the sum approved by parliament for specific purposes and expenditure is within the warrant amounts. The latter element of expenditure control is often used by the MOF/treasury to ensure that expenditures do not exceed actual resources (which may be less than estimated in the budget).

The functional processes associated with government fiscal management and the information requirements for these processes have been documented by Davies, Hashim and Talero (1993), Hashim and Allan (1994) and in other World Bank publications (see References). A brief description of the major functional processes and the associated information systems for GFM is given in Table 1. The information systems architecture for GFM is shown in Figure 1. The information systems architecture for GFM has been derived by analyzing data from a number of countries on fiscal management processes and the information systems required to support these processes.
