The Liberia Macroeconomic Policy Analysis Center (LIMPAC) at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) Tuesday September 1, 2020 donated huge consignment of computers and other equipment to the Legislative Budget Office (LBO) to enhance their work.

The equipment donated includes laptops, projectors, photocopiers among other essential office materials valued at US$20,000.00.

LIMPAC is a Research Think Tank of the Government of Liberia established since 2008. It was founded to foster sustainable and transformative growth and development in Liberia by adequately supporting public policy design and implementation through evidence-based research and analysis.

Speaking at the donation ceremony, the Executive Director of LIMPAC, Del Francis Wreh said with the availability of the equipment, the LBO will continue to make more sound policy decisions for the Legislature and Liberia in general.

Wreh assured staff of the LBO that LIMPAC will continue to collaborate with them in various areas. He was however quick to note that the support provided the LBO has nothing to with their independence.

“We will go to the judiciary as well. We are supportive as you support the Ministry of Finance and Development planning. We are not taking away your independence,” Wreh said.

For his part, the Acting Director of LBO, Othello S. Tarbah expressed happiness over the donation of what he calls needed equipment, saying it is unprecedented.

According to him, strengthening the LBO is critical to providing technical support to the legislature.

“This equipment will go ahead in strengthening the LBO and it is coming at the right time. We are grateful to MFDP and LIMPAC and we are prepared to work together,” Tarbah said.

At the same time, Representative Josiah Marvin Cole, the Co-Chair of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Rules, Orders and Administration lauded LIMPAC for empowering the LBO with the essential equipment.
