It had four funding modalities namely Sector Budget Support (SBS), basket (Joint Partnership Fund), Technical Assistance and Programme monitoring.

ORGUT provided two Technical Advisors to JWSSPS: an International Financial Management Advisor to the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) and an International Advisor to the Directorate of Water Resources Management. The Financial Management Advisor supported the continued alignment of donor support through increased development of MWE’s financial management capacity in respect of planning, budgeting, budget execution, business plan development, procurement, reporting and follow-up on the annual audit as well as special audits, (value for money etc) as appropriate.
