Context of the Consultancy

In 2015, the Lao Disabled People’s Association (LDPA) adapted its financial management system to the use of QuickBooks software. However, due to several challenges, the use of the software was unsuccessful. In February 2016, a consultant was mobilized to assess the current operations of LDPA’s Finance Unit and to provide recommendations to support LDPA to restart use of QuickBooks Software. The objectives of the current consultancy are based on the recommendations provided from the assessment.
