During the preparation of the Bank's budget, the unit ensures coordination among other departments, collects and analyzes data, and prepares tables outlining the targets of the Bank's divisions as well as providing data for the audit of the Bank by independent audit or government bodies. In addition, it develops new internal control systems and reports for management and provides support for other similar projects.
