According to the assessment from the State Treasury, the online public service system has been operating smoothly and stably, ensuring the legality, safety and detailed regulations for each service.
A smooth process
Online public services are an important step in the State Treasury Development Strategy to 2020. This activity is a premise for modernizing the spending control of the State Treasury system, ensuringdocuments and vouchers of state budget expenditures of the budget-using units are sent to online public services,then the documents and vouchers are classified and processed at different levels on the TABMIS systemto ensure transparency.
Through online public service, leaders of the State Treasury at all levels manage their staff by controlling the status of processing expenditure control records at every step and every stage of the process. Thereby, increasing the responsibility of expenditure control officers in the performance of tasks; making the operation of the State Treasury system more transparent, clearer and better serving the units and people.
For units using state budget funds, investors and project management units will enjoy many benefits, such asnot needing to bring payment documents directly to the State Treasury, saving time (due to records, vouchers and requests for payment of state budget expenditures, including investment and recurrent expenditures, have been imported and transmitted online to the State Treasury).
At the same time, the online public service system provides information about the time, process of receiving records and controlling payment through status such as: "State Treasury rejects or receives dossiers"; "The State Treasury is processing the dossier"; "The State Treasury has paid or refused to pay", the reason for refusing to pay; "Dossier of budget use for processing expired". This has contributed to increased transparency in the control of payment records of the State Treasury, helping units using state budget fundsknow the status and results of their records.
