Finance ministries

Finance ministries and governmental departments are responsible for managing the finances of a country or state. This includes overseeing the budget, taxation, and public expenditure.

They often play a key role in M&E by ensuring funds are appropriately used and monitoring the financial outcomes of policies and programs. In some settings, these ministries might have a hands-on role in M&E. In others, their role might be oversight, ensuring value for money and providing financial guidelines for M&E activities across departments.
