Consultative Implementation and Monitoring Council (CIMC)

Govt keeps CIMC from closing

The Government made this commitment over the weekend after news of CIMC’s imminent closure was published by Loop PNG and shared widely on social media platforms.

The CIMC is presently grateful to the government for appropriating K4 million for the first time in the 2023 National Budget through PIP (K1million) at Department of National Panning & Monitoring and Miscellaneous Item #207 (K3million) under the Department of Treasury.

Hope for CIMC

CIMC were on the verge of shutting its doors. They stated that accessing funds earmarked for the organization in the 2023 National Budget has become truly cumbersome, leaving the organization no option but to fold.

However, it is not yet over. CIMC updated that the Department of National Planning and Monitoring upon learning of the decision for closure has prioritized to secure funding for the independent mechanism that develops policies, directly influences and monitors government decision making.
