On the afternoon of 20th July 2015, FMIS Financial Management Working Group (FMWG) organized a ceremony for FMIS Go-Live 1, presided over by H.E. Dr. Aun Pornmoniroth, Minister of Ministry of Economy and Finance, which is the first step of the journey for a better Public Financial Management. The event was attended by top managements and the officials of MEF, relevant Line-Ministries, as well as representatives of development partners. The implementation of FMIS Go-Live 1 includes primarily two major modules: General Ledger (GL) and Budget Allocation (BA), which are involved by users from the General Department of Budget, General Department of National Treasury (GDNT) and Information Technology Department (ITD) (Visit website for detail information-:http://fmis.mef.gov.kh/news-en/financial-management-information-system-fmis-go-live-1-ceremony/). Other modules will go-live in October.
With the participation of Oracle PeopleSoft consultant, the Business Process team of the project is testing on End-to-End Processes in order to seek for potential errors or mistakes before FMIS go live in October. Next, the team will conduct User Acceptance Test 2 between the end of August and early September, which will allow all relevant officials to test all conditions especially in regard to daily transactions of each General Departments-Departments. Data Conversion team continues to download data from KIT system for inputting, updating in FMIS system; and this process will continue until Go-Live 2 in October.

The Change Management team is also preparing plans for face-to-face communication with relevant officials at various General Departments-Departments and National Provincial-Treasuries, in regard to the changes and the progresses of the FMIS project as well as the assessment of the understanding level of relevant officials in August.
