Webinar on What to Look for in an Information System for Public Debt Management

March 7, 2017

Washington, D.C.

A debt management information system (DMIS) is the backbone of any debt management office. A robust, well-functioning, and user-friendly system allows governments to: (i) keep an accurate and up-to-date debt database; (ii) improve work flow processes; (iii) reduce operational risk; (iv) produce consolidated reports; and (v) facilitate core analyses. In brief, a well-functioning and efficient DMIS enables and strengthens a debt management program.

The World Bank receives requests from governments concerning which information systems to use for debt management, whether to purchase off-the-shelf products or develop systems internally, and what capabilities to expect from systems. This webinar—a follow-up from a similar session held during the 8th Sovereign Debt Management Forum—aims to initiate a broad discussion among government debt practitioners regarding DMIS and to function as a forum for participants to share experiences and key lessons.
