Skhomo Technologies offers Ramco Government Resource Planning (GRP) Suite -
For Smart Government

Initiate technology-driven transformation in Provincial, National government. Serve citizens better. Watch the
nation grow.

As a key player in this nation’s growth, you are probably concerned about how to revitalize public administration and services to make
them more transparent, proactive, efficient and service-oriented. Indeed, this is a challenge facing most Governments around the
world. In their quest to improve service to citizens, Governments are implementing innovative changes not only in their organizational
structure, practices and capacities, but also in the ways they mobilize, deploy and utilize human capital, information, technology and
financial resources for service delivery to citizens. As you would have understood by now, Information and Communications
Technology (ICT) plays a key role in this transformation, which is why most nations are implementing e-governance at various levels.
Whatever be your priority, technology can help you achieve it. If you are focused on improving access and delivery of services, your
priority is the front-end interface with customers and citizens. It is about providing more organized, aligned and often integrated
information flows, new transactional capacities, as well as new mechanisms for feedback, consultation, and more participative forms
of democracy. If you are engaged in the management and delivery of public administration, it is about driving down costs and improving
the effectiveness and efficiency of ‘back office’ functions and the basic machinery of government. At the transnational level, you are
probably concerned about removing the barriers to international cooperation and development and creating an agenda of connected
governance globally.

Whatever be the goal, you can add a ‘smart’ factor to your Government by applying ICT holistically to planning, management and
operations across domains and process areas to generate sustainable public value. Skhomo Technologies using Ramco’s

accounting is used only in government and other forms of public financial management. Funds are generated from external agencies and
internal debt instruments. Expenditures are managed to ensure that the budget is not exceeded. Changes in the Government’s financial
situation result in budget transfers to ensure fiscal discipline with a prudent apex national bank
Effective Treasury Management

Make the most of timely Fund Balance information. Prepare cash plans periodically.

Most Government agencies/ central authorities/ agencies process large volumes of transactions
that impact the fund balance on hand with the Treasury. You need to have a proper cash plan
ahead of time, so as to manage the expenditures carefully. The flow of revenue and expenditure at
different time periods is an important factor in assessing cash availability at a specific time period,
and deciding the Government’s spending capability. Timely availability of accurate data helps you
in preparing the cash plans and reconciliations at periodic levels, say, monthly, quarterly, etc.
