FreeBalance government customers to be recognized for governance accomplishments

FreeBalance, a leading vendor of Government Resource Planning (GRP) software, today announced the launch of the Public Financial Management Awards of Excellence for outstanding achievements in good governance. The first awards will be presented at the annual FreeBalance International Steering Committee (FISC) event taking place from January 16-18, 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey. The FreeBalance Public Financial Management Awards of Excellence recognize government successes beyond the implementation of Government Resource Planning (GRP) software. Award winners will be announced during the FISC event.

“FreeBalance government customers have made spectacular improvements in fiscal discipline, transparency and performance,” said Manuel Pietra, President & CEO of FreeBalance. “We believe that it is time to recognize these improvements internationally with awards every two years.”

GRP software, like the FreeBalance Accountability Suite, is leveraged by governments around the world to improve efficiency and effectiveness. Government and public service commitment is required to realize and sustain these governance improvements. The Busan High Level Forum committed international partners to increase the use of “country systems” such as configurations of GRP software used by FreeBalance government customers.
