     Project title: Sindh Public Sector Management Reform Project (SPSMRP)

Government of Sindh and IBA Karachi have signed a Services Agreement for the SPSMRP. The GoS is keen to enhance performance efficiency of the provincial tax administration in Sindh and aims to achieve capacity building through regular training opportunities for the public sector officers as a part of the Project Appraisal Development (PAD) by the World Bank for the proposed IDA Loan of US$ 50 million (USD Fifty Million) to be given to the GoS for Sindh Public Sector Management Reform Project (SPSMRP).

In order to meet the training needs of the tax officials, the Institute of Business Administration will offer its services to the Board of Revenue Sindh, Excise and Taxation Department and the Sindh Revenue Board to help revitalize its SPSMRP program by providing research and capacity building support in the areas identified by GoS.

The main objective of the agreement is to foster bilateral cooperation between the Parties in the area of research and analyses of different tax issues relating to overall provincial tax policy framework, and allow IBA and GoS to plan collaborative research, educational, and training activities of mutual interest in relation to SPSMRP.
