About Local Government Information (LOGIN) Tanzania
The purpose of LOGIN Tanzania is to provide accurate, detailed and up-to-date information on local government finances in Tanzania. Providing public access to this data is critical in order for local government officials to improve the quality of local services, as well as for communities to hold central and local government officials accountable for the funding of local government service delivery.
The dark-grey menu bar at the top of each page allows you to access five different sections of the LOGIN website. As you enter each section, additional options will appear on the second (light grey) menu bar. The website's five main sections include:
This section contains general information about the LOGIN website, the Local Government Finance Working Group, and Tanzania's local government finance system.
Since FY 2006-07, all local governments in Tanzania Mainland use PlanRep software to prepare their budget plans. In order to enhance the transparency of local government finances in Tanzania, this section provides users access to detailed LGA Budget Plans.
This section allows the user to generate a number of reports to monitor different aspects of the local government finance system, including local expenditures, local revenues, intergovernmental transfers, and treasury disbursements. For each of these catagories, the user can generate two types of monitoring reports for local government finances: individual council reports (to view financial data for a single local government authority) or comparative reports (to compare financial data from several local councils).
Sectors & Performance
This section allows the user to generate a number of reports to monitor the delivery of local public services in key sectors, and to monitor the performance of local governments in the area of local financial management. The user can again generate two types of monitoring reports for local governments: individual council reports (to view information for a single local government authority) or comparative reports (to compare data for several local councils).
Local government finance does not take place in a vacuum. This section provides access to documents that deal with local government finance. These documents include policy documents and relevant laws, as well as local budget guidelines, analytical documents and related studies.
This website is prepared and maintained by the Local Government Finance Working Group, which is jointly led by PMO-RALG and the Ministry of Finance.
