As a central Ministry, MOF has many stakeholders, each playing multiple roles. These are summarized in a detailed analysis of the complex and interrelated stakeholders and their roles, is core to the development of the MOF Corporate Plan.
The understanding of stakeholder needs and relationships with the Ministry provides an important basis of this Plan. Stakeholder needs drive the identification of outputs and associated reforms and their grouping into programs and sub-programs/divisions. This in turn justifies the associated allocation of budget (local and aid) supporting them. Delivery of service to customer-stakeholder, the purchase of goods and services from supplier-stakeholders, joint working with partner-stakeholders, and adherence to rules established by oversight-stakeholders are all important considerations in the formulation of the Ministry’s CP.
