Project Description: Given the very urgent requirements of the government of Afghanistan to vitalize its financial institutions with more innovative and robust technologies to coup with the sudden and increasing working relationship between the government of Afghanistan, its citizen and the international aid/donor communities. AFMIS (Afghanistan Financial Management Information System) was established by GTR for the Treasury Department of Ministry of Finance.

Once the system stabilized, treasury department of Ministry of Finance recognized the need to establish a data-center that will not only host the AFMIS system, but also implement IRIS (Integrated Record and Information System), which will allow them to digitize all their manual legacy records in to a digital library and also facilitate access to this library through virtual means.
