SMDP, developed by PITB in collaboration with Planning and Development Board, is an online system for monitoring of development spending. The system was conceived to bridge information gaps between various stakeholders. It cuts down delays and brings in more transparency and efficiency in implementation of Mid Term Development Framework (MTDF) and Annual Development Programme (ADP).
