The EU's cooperation with Palestine is closely aligned to the Palestinian Authority National Policy Agenda 2017-2022 Putting Citizens First. EU support includes institutional capacity building in the key sectors of governance, social development, economic and private sector development and public infrastructure, as well as support to the recurrent costs of the Palestinian Authority, via PEGASE Direct Financial Support ("PEGASE DFS"). One of PEGASE DFS components is the contribution to payment of salaries and pensions of the civil servants and pensioners included in the Palestinian Ministry of Finance (MoF) payroll system.
This Project aims to develop a new payroll IT system to increase the accountability and the efficiency of the Palestinian Authority payroll system. The project will be implemented and led by the Palestinian Ministry of Finance (MoF), and will involve other ministries and agencies on payroll components such as but not limited to General Personnel Council and Palestinian Pension Authority.
