Official closing of the third training session on the TADAT tool
Antananarivo, 14 December 2021.
An official closing ceremony of the third training session on the TADAT tool and the awarding of certificates to the 51 participants of the last two promotions, having successfully passed their training, namely 20 evaluators validated in 2019 and 31 (including 03 from technical and financial partners) in 2020, took place on 14 December in Anosy.
Indeed, as part of the reforms undertaken by the Directorate-General for Taxation (DGI) to improve tax revenues, training sessions of the tax administration’s management team on the Tax Administration Diagnostic Assessment Tool (TADAT) were initiated in September 2019 (1st wave), then in January and February 2021 (2nd wave).
A third training session on the TADAT tool was thus organized from 06 December to 13 December 2021, under the aegis of the Secretary General of Economy and Finance Andry Velomiadana Bearison RAMANAMPANOHARANA. This last training session touched on a wider panel, such as the heads of DGI operational units, the representatives of the other departments to the MEF (Directorate-General for Customs, Internal Audit Directorate), the Court of Auditors, from the EDBM, the ITUC, representatives of the private sector and the representative of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), for a total of 50 participants.
Thus, in its vision of an "innovative, transparent administration and pillar of emergence", the DGI, in partnership with the Secretariat of TADAT, the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF), and supported by the World Bank through the Public Sector Performance Support Project (PAPSP) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has enabled the initiation of people outside the tax administration, particularly those active in public finance and social accountability, the TADAT tool and the tax profession.
As a reminder, the TADAT tool is an instrument developed by international partners, with the technical input of a wide range of experts, to help make tax administrations more efficient and fair. This tool allows the DGI to carry out a self-assessment, to regularly measure its performance, and thus to detect weak points in time, and then take the related measures, in accordance with international good practice.
