The system supports the strategic reorganization of UN-HABITAT as a project based organization rather than a hierarchical division based organization. The project will capture new information that is currently not captured by current United Nations and UN-HABITAT management information systems. Pull information from existing systems and aggregate the information of all project to give an overall overview of the performance of the organization The system will provide information on all funds that have been committed for projects (including monies not spent as yet), and all income that has been pledge and received by the agency to give an overview of the overall financial situation.
