This paper proposes a budget-centric and technology-focused framework to assess the government transparency and public financial maturity. Governments leverage technology to manage public finances and enable transparency. Most assessments of Public Financial Management (PFM) tend to be technology - neutral by providing little or no guidance about the use of Integrated Financial Management Information Systems (IFMIS), also known as Government Resource Planning (GRP). These assessments focus primarily on procedures and practices because no GRP can improve PFM quality when procedures or practices are ineffective.
