  • Government/Governance, Reforms
Professional Experience:
The west african country ofLiberia descended into fragility, following the breakdown of accountability institutions and human capital drain. The Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) re-tooled its strategic vision to help address these gaps. In this regard, the Expenditure Department was reorganized with the mandate to ensure expenditure efficiency considering resource constraints and take a leading role in the overall public financial management (PFM) reform. As head of the department, I led business process reviews of the expenditure management chain to ensure that resources were aptly allocated to priority areas, including on social spending.

Under my leadership, the department was at the core of PFM, leading the PFM technical committee( PTC), consisting of all the major players in the government public accountability space. One of the key components of this mandate was the training of a cadre of financial management and procurement professionals, through a World bank-funded arrangement (Financial Management Training Program-FMTP).

My role at the MFDP situated me at the core to address governance issues, build public accountability institution, and accelerate the process of human capital formation, which included training, technical assistance coordination with development partners. As at the time of my exit from the MFDP, major improvements had been made regarding this mandate. The Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) was strengthened and expanded to more ministries and agencies; there were record number of graduates from both the financial management and procurement cohorts of the FMTP deployed across government; capacity was initiated at the sub-national (county) levels; internal audit capacity enhanced; external audit capacity strengthened through increased resource allocation for training, inter alia. Moreover, the expenditure management chain at the MFDP had been improved to reflect international best practices. While there are still more to be done to fully graduate from fragility, the state of public accountability and governance has improved following the strong foundation set up by our interventions.

I have also prepared clients in "audit readiness" both in the private and public sectors. Have worked as a Regulatory Risk/Compliance Officer for a U.S. based financial institution, and have been trained in “Know Your Customer” (KYC) client profiles of Corporate Clients;
Ascertained that Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes met the requirements of the US Regulatory environment.
Provided support to AML investigations and financial crimes compliance colleagues and clients globally in performing all aspects of their work.
