The mandated functions of the Ministry of Finance can be summarized as to provide policy and strategic advice, as well as financial services to the Government in order to achieve sustainable, long-term economic outcomes and fiscal viability towards the advancement of the national vision to 'achieve quality of life for all Samoan citizens'. Our role is to promote accountability and transparency in service delivery to the community through establishment and implementation of sound financial management systems, standards, policies and procedures. To achieve this, we value feedback from all our stakeholders.
The upgrading of the Ministry’s website is a product of an internal review undertaken, it was then concluded that there is a need to provide better quality and up-to-date information for all our stakeholders. One of the ways to achieve this was to review our website. There were two main objectives identified after the Ministry’s internal review with directions to keep it simple and allow for future expansion.
- To populate information at a timely manner and
- To make it simple for everyone to navigate, taking into accounts our culture and people with special needs.
This online service offers many new exciting features and more up to date information. The design reflects the current setup within the Ministry’s communication system with promising turn around response times. On the administration side, Management is now well equipped with advance technology to communicate with all its stakeholders.
On the way forward I believe we are able to utilize this service not just to communicate but to conduct serious business. It enables us to offer you, our stakeholders, an effective and efficient service, and to interact seamlessly anytime from anywhere.
