My New Database Application: Cash Advance Control Book
Since I have been assigned as a National Finance Assistance to assist the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport to manage the Strengthening Cambodia’s Response to HIV/AIDS programme, I must have done something to improve the financial management of the programme so that the programme’s resources will be utilized effectively to achieve the programme’s goals.
After starting my work for a few weeks, I realized that the programme must have an appropriate tool to control the Cash Advance as the disbursement routine of programme was mostly in Advance form. Meaning to say the Finance Department released cash advance to the Implementing Department of the programme to conduct the activities planned in the Annual Work Plan. Then the cash advance liquidation will be made later in 14 days after completion of the activities implementation.
Recognizing the importance of controlling the cash advance (the programme will be not shortage of fund and the cash advance will be not used for personal interest), with guidance and support from my uncle who is a database developer, I have developed an application called Cash Advance Control Book to manage the cash advance of the programme. This application was developed by using the database application software of the Microsoft called Microsoft Access.
In return of my effort, my application was congratulated by my colleagues of the Department of Finance. As a result, the Department of Finance can control the cash advance easily in which the outstanding cash advance is controlled and avoid the overdue cash advance.
Special thank to my uncle who give me a chance to engage in IT world. Without your support, this application could not come to live.
