  17. 17. SAP delivers Good Governance for Ghana<br />SAP committed to the project because the conditions were favorable to a software implementation and we were highly impressed with the maturity of the EITI process in Ghana. <br />IT is an essential enabler to meet the high level of governance standards that this country has set itself.<br />Effective IT bridges insight and action. In this case, it provides the big picture of revenue streams and payments, together with detailed information. Based on this information, the GEITI Secretariat will be in an even better position to ensure that declaration and payments are reconciled.<br />In concrete terms, this project will deliver really powerful benefits such as:<br /><ul><li>Effective and fast reconciliation of declarations and payments;
  18. 18. Quality of data with a validation process and one version of the truth;
  19. 19. A simple overview of revenues;
