The Academy of the Ministry of Finance is one of the most prominent learning hubs for Georgian civil service. The training center with a turnover of up to 2000 trainees per year delivers a wide spectrum of trainings including in finance, budgeting, accounting, audit, tax, marketing, and project management.

As part of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia (MOF), the main priority of the Academy is to ensure the professional development of MOF employees and support the MOF’s ongoing reform efforts. In addition, the Academy actively cooperates with other Government agencies and supports their development centers.

The Academy’s library was well-stocked with new books and materials and is popular among the Academy’s training participants. However, the Academy did not have a library management system (LMS) to allow users to search the library’s collection and check out books and materials which impeded the library’s usage.
