In its 2020 Fiscal Transparency Report, U.S. Embassy Kigali assessed that Rwanda did not meet the U.S. State Department’s minimum fiscal transparency requirements because it did not publish detailed allocations to, and earnings from, significant state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

In addition, an audit opinion on the consolidated financial statements of the general government is not published.

While information on debt servicing obligations and new public loans undertaken by the Government of Rwanda (GOR) is available online, the GOR does not provide a detailed breakdown of SOEs’ public guarantees.

Program Objectives

The overall objective of the grant is to expand the amount of publicly available budget information and increase the public’s capacity to analyze it.

It will also aim to encourage the government to provide feed-back on inputs from the public. On the demand side, the project will strengthen the capacity of CSOs, media, and community-based institutions to engage in budget preparation and demand accountability.
Objective 1: Encourage the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, Rwanda Parliament, and local governments to make pre- and post-budget enactment information publicly available.
