In order to collect regular data on the resources allocated towards essential services for children, a Regional Framework for Capturing and Collecting Budget Data was created. This system produces reports and helps measure fairness in the distribution of public resources.

Objectives

The objectives of this assignment were:
1. To produce the requirements and design documents of the Web based
Management Information System.
2. To create a Web based Management Information System to collect, compile and
present financial data on provision of essential services to children.
3. To provide a technical documentation for the system.
4. To deploy the Web based Management Information System on a secure cloud
server.
5. To offer adequate technical and maintenance services.

Methodology

Analysis of revenue and expenditure is done by associating revenue and expenditure with a taxonomy (classification).
For instance a revenue amount can be associated with a taxonomy of type “gender” and value “women”. We can then add up all revenue for a period associated with this taxonomy to compute revenue allocated to women.
