ORGANISATIONAL BACKGROUND
1.
The organisation, Aid Accounts and Audit Division, referred as AAAD, is one of
the divisions of the Department of Economic Affairs under the Ministry of
Finance, Government of India.
2.
Government of India, through bilateral, and multilateral agreements, takes
external assistance by way of loans / grants. The assistance/aid may be for the
programme/projects implemented directly by the Central/ State Government or
for non-government bodies where GOI is a guarantor.
3.
Generally these aids are not utilised/disbursed in one go, but, disbursed at various
stages of the project. Similarly, the repayment generally starts after the expiry of
moratorium period.
4.
Since GOI is involved, directly or indirectly in utilisation and debt servicing of
this assistance, AAAD is responsible to maintain and control the accounts of this
assistance.
5.
The Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs consists of many
operational wings addressing various requirements of Economy.
6.
One such wing of Department of Economic Affairs is “External Finance Wing”
which has the following divisions:
(1)
CM & ECB Division
(2)
FT & Investments
(3)
EEC
(4)
Administration Division
(5)
Currency & Coinage Division
(6)
Japan & UN Division

(10) Economic Division
7.
Each Division is headed by a “Joint Secretary” and is directly reporting to the
External Finance Wing headed by an “Additional Secretary” as illustrated in
Section QM 10.3.1.
8.
The Aid Accounts and Audit Division is headed by the “Controller” of the rank of
Joint Secretary and is supported by a set of officers and staff.
9.
In addition to accounting of External Aid and other related issues, the audit of
import licenses issued to registered exporters under EXIM Policy by the Ministry
of Commerce, GOI as Export Promotion, is also the responsibility of AAAD and
is functioning from the office of Controller, AAAD.
10.
For the purpose of compilation of Central Government receipts and expenditure
on a monthly basis and onward submission to the Controller General of Accounts
(CGA) towards records keeping on behalf of the Government of India (GOI), a
PAO is also functioning and interacting with AAAD as needed.
11.
The established QMS, however, does not cover the above mentioned two
functions, i.e. EP Audit and PAO, under the scope.
12.
Thus, AAAD is an integral part of GOI functioning at the location indicated.
13.
The officers and staff are GOI employees and are governed by the regulations,
responsibilities and obligations of the positions they hold.
14.
The Controller (CAAA) is mainly supported by an immediate team of Joint
Controller (JCA) and three Deputy Controllers (DCA). This team, in turn, is
further assisted by Accounts Officers (AO) suitably grouped in section wise
arrangement.

-The soft copy and hard copy of staff strength (as sanctioned) and the current
strength is readily available with Shri Hemant Kumar of Disb I and Shri Naresh
Kumar AAO of Administration section respectively.
16.
Since the external bilateral and multilateral agencies interact with the project
authorities through AAAD, the functional efficiency of AAAD is very important
to build a “reputation” and “image” with the donors/agencies.
17.
AAAD’s past record is very impressive and attractive. In fact, certain external
agencies have identified AAAD as a model for training their members.

Considering the facilities and promptness required, an on-line computerised
System called “Integrated Computerised System” (ICS) is developed with
necessary compatibility with CS-DRMS for data sharing. (For an outline on ICS
see QM 2.7)
9.
The Internet era provides possibilities of instant information. Keeping pace with
the trend, AAAD also maintains a web site that provides e-link to various
agencies. The web site is expected to reduce the cycle time for document flow
and information flow.

PROCESS FLOW
1.
The AAAD operation mainly deals with Sovereign External Aid extended by
funding agencies/institutions to the Government of India (GOI) for funding
various project activities in India. The main responsibility of AAAD is to co-
ordinate with all the agencies concerned and the donor and to maintain the
accounts of external aid flows.
2.
In view of the above, the main operational process consists of disbursement,
repayment, accounting and reporting, value monitoring, data updation and
statistics. In each of these functions there are one or more sequential activities
involved. Since the grant/loan process from the external agency to the user
authority is with the objective to aid and support the project/user authority, the
flow of events is more or less same in most of the cases. However, there are
variations in the terms and conditions of agreements with the funding
agencies/institutions.
3.
Therefore, a varied style of handling the loan accounts is practised at AAAD.
Overall a computerised support system (Integrated Computerised System
called as ICS) is established to maintain the loan/grant accounts.
4.
Since many of the activities are similar, the sequence also is treated as similar.
The entire set of external agencies is suitably grouped under four sections for
handling these cases separately. In other words, the activity sequence in one
of the sections may be nearly or fully identical with that of the other section
except for the name and source of the Donor.
5.
As above, the operational variations between case to case of loan agreement is
an important matter and clearly known to the functional authority handling the
cases.
6.
In line with the above description, in order to understand the general
operational flow of events, the following operational sequences are defined.
(These are typical in nature and vary slightly in actual performance style from
case to case).
Operational Sequences
7.
The operational sequence followed at AAAD with respect to external
assistance is briefly discussed below.

For handling the agreement the computer support by way of ICS is established
(for details see QM 2.7). This computerised system is comprehensive in
nature and is able to monitor the status of loan/grant as required. But, this
needs “one time initiation” in the form of a master, which actually contains the
basic details of the external assistance agreement. Each agreement is
identified by a unique number and is updated in the master by the EDP
Section.
Claim Processing
11.
The activities that relate to document/information flow of claims submitted by
the project authorities/beneficiaries of the external assistance are grouped
under this category. These activities are critical in nature as the entire
disbursement/fund flow is based on this document/information. These
activities are:
Submission of claims by the Project Authorities to AAAD
Recommendation / Rejection of claims by AAAD
Submission of withdrawal/replenishment application by AAAD to the funding
agencies

(2) Project authorities
(3) AAAD
(4) Funding agencies
Disbursement
13.
The first phase of the external assistance cycle is the disbursement which, in
turn, consist of one or more cycles of a chain of events. These chains of
events are like claim processing, debit to special account, receipt of funds,
recommendations for ACA release etc.
14.
All the activities that involve document/information/funds flow from the
funding agencies to the project implementing agencies fall under this category.
Such activities are based on the withdrawal/replenishment application
submitted by AAAD to the funding agencies.
15.
Since the activities in this category effect the funds flow between agencies,
these are treated as sensitive. These activities comprise of :
Transfer of funds by the funding agencies into AAAD’s account at RBI
(including special account of the project).
Transfer of funds from special accounts to AAAD’s account at RBI.
Receipt of disbursement notice (Donor Payment Advice) from the funding
agencies.
Acknowledgement of receipt of funds (Government Foreign Transaction) from
funding agencies in AAAD’s account sent by RBI to AAAD.
Issue of recommendation for ACA release (ACA recommendation) for
releasing funds by GOI to the State Govt.
Issue of ACA sanction advice by PF-I Division of Department of Expenditure
for transferring the funds to State Governments.
Issue of advice by the PAO (Expenditure) to RBI, CAS, Nagpur for
transferring the funds to the State Governments.
Transfer of fund by RBI, CAS, Nagpur to the State Governments.
Release of funds to project authorities by the State Governments

Debt Servicing
17.
The process of disbursement continues till the completion of project activities
or terminal date of disbursement, whichever is earlier. The repayment begins
according to the terms and conditions of the external assistance agreement.
This function of AAAD towards the repayment is very crucial in the sense that
the due dates of payments, the functioning and availability of banking
facilities at both the ends and the currency fluctuations are all very important
in deciding upon the repayment. Even though the donor sends demand advice,
AAAD is responsible for initiating action for debt service payment.
Repayment/including interest payment/other charges
18.
The activities involving document flow of repayments made by AAAD to the
funding agencies are grouped under this category.
Receipt of demand advice from funding agencies
Issue of sanction (Repayment sanction advice) by AAAD to nominated bank
to make payment in foreign currency.
Receipt of intimation of payment by AAAD and RBI from the nominated
banks.
Release of Rupee fund by RBI to the nominated domestic banks from
AAAD’s account at RBI

Data Updation
20.
ICS is designed in a manner that any processing done through it immediately
updates the status with various facilities for usage in various combinations.
Since these updations are done automatically as and when the process is
executed, the scope of manual errors and mistakes are minimised. The
authorities for approval of various functional activities are retained with the
Section Heads to ensure correctness and accuracy before approving any
process.
21.
The documents used for data updation are:
Loan/grant agreement
Cancellation/ amendment to agreement
Claims
RBI Debit advice
Disallowance/rejection/approval of claims by Donor
Donor payment advice from Donor
Government Foreign Transaction from RBI
Donor Demand Advice from Donor
Intimation of repayment from Banks
List of holidays in Bank in India/Foreign Banks
Daily exchange rate from RBI
Reporting and Statistics
22.
The updated data in ICS, agreement wise is available in the form of loan/grant
master in the computerised system. AAAD send monthly, quarterly and annual
report to CGA (SCT), RBI and MOF for information/reconciliation.
23.
The reports as required can be generated and printed agreement wise, sector
wise, project wise, donor wise, payment wise and so on. These information
are also used in the form of statistics for various other purposes of future
planning (Budget proposal), Parliament Questions and External Assistance
Brochure. A number of reports are published on the website for the
information of general public.
Special Account
24.
Some loan/grant agreements of select donors requires the borrower to open a
special account with the Central Bank (RBI) wherein the estimated

expenditure for specified period expressed in US $ are withdrawn and
deposited by the donor. This account is managed by AAAD to reimburse the
expenditure incurred by the project implementing agencies. The donor
periodically replenishes the account based on the request submitted by AAAD.
AAAD manages the size of special account deposit within the limit prescribed
in the agreement, by surrendering or enhancing the deposit depending upon
the requirement of the project activities. The amount lying in special account
at the close of loan/grant are refunded to the donor. Special Account is
annually Audited by CAG of India.
Reconciliation & Reporting
25.
The PAO section of AAAD is responsible for the “Classification” of the
Accounts in appropriate heads (as per Government guidelines) and
reconciliation with ICS is needed. After duly completing the Accounting
process the PAO consolidates the summary of the transactions based on the
RBI vouchers and prepares the monthly accounts and submits to CGA.
Clearing and Closing Account
26.
Loan account is closed for withdrawal on the terminal date of disbursement
mentioned in the agreement and loan account is finally closed with the
repayment of last instalment of principal to the donor on final maturity as per
amortisation schedule. Grant account is closed when the full amount of the
grant is withdrawn or on the terminal date of disbursement. Amounts
remaining unutilised till that date are cancelled.
Correspondence
27.
During various stages of operations AAAD interacts with various stakeholders
including the bilateral and multilateral donors and the project authorities.
There are many standardised correspondence, formats for this purpose. In
addition, AAAD contacts these agencies through fax/e-mail etc., for any
clarification etc.

OUTLINE OF INTERGRATED COMPUTERISED SYSTEM
1.
The AAAD functions are carried out based on manual book keeping till
November 1999. During the financial year 1999-2000 the ICS was launched and
the manual entries w.e.f. 01/04/1999 to 31/03/2000 were reconciled with ICS
and the ICS was completely online w.e.f. 01/04/2000 i.e. no manual record is
available after 01/04/2000.
OBJECTIVE
2.
The Integrated Computerised System ICS) is aimed at maintaining the data on
various External Aid flows and status of outstanding debt on a real time basis.
3.
The key objectives of ICS are:
(1)
Availability of up-to-date/on-line information on external assistance
including ACA release
(2)
Drastic reduction in manual effort
(3)
Enhance Debt Management capabilities
(4)
Ensuring timely electronic updation of CS-DRMS database
DESCRIPTION
4.
The ICS is an operational computer software that maintains various ledgers and
registers as needed by AAAD for carrying out its functions. The system provides
a comprehensive on-line, real-time view of the external debt portfolio of GOI
and maintains various ledgers, registers, subsidiary records etc. required by
AAAD.
5.
The ICS maintains a Master that contains all the basic information relating to
each loan/grant agreement. When a new agreement is signed with donor, the first
activity is to create loan/grant Master in the ICS. Any amendments to the
provision of the agreement are captured in ICS by updating the master or
through cancellation/enhancement screen.
6.
The ICS is controlled and operated with the main server at the EDP and network
consisting of client machines with the users of the computerised systems. The
ICS consists of three main processes

Compatibility with CS-DRMS
12.
Initially CS-DRMS was the computerised system maintained for the purpose of
portfolio analysis. The database “DRMS” contained the data for the above
purpose.
13.
When ICS was developed, the CDB (Centralised Database) was made as the
data source for ICS operation.
14.
In order to provide compatibility and to avoid data entry duplication, the ICS
provides a built-in module that automatically transfers data to CS-DRMS.
15.
The ICS is designed with a variety of menu options and with a overall possible
templates of more than 100 for viewing the reports/queries.
16.
The ICS provides for formal approval of entered data through specified authority
levels controlled by appropriate passwords.

The Section Heads (or function in-charges) are authorised for certain approvals
through their passwords.
18.
The EDP is responsible for providing access permissions to staff members as per
their duty allocations.
Front-end Correction
19.
In case of some inadvertent entries and wrong approvals, the account operation
can be corrected by appropriately putting in rectification entries through the
same channel. This is known as “Front-end Correction” and this will involve
using the authorised “key password” by the approving authority and a few
(formal / informal) justifications. Thus, the approving authority is aware of the
frequency and level of “Front-end Corrections” sought by members.
Back-end Corrections
20.
In order to monitor and to develop further requirements of software the access to
the database is directly available to the system administrators through their
existing systems with suitable key passwords. Any ICS data can be approached
through this and corrected. However, a control process titled “Back-end
Correction” is established for regulating this.

The ICS caters to the various information needs sought by various associates/
stakeholders as summarised below.

OVERVIEW OF QUALITY OBJECTIVES
For the purpose of monitoring the level of achievements and improvements
emerging out of effective implementation of the QMS, the parameters and
their measurability are defined and guided by the Quality Policy. These
parameters, their computations and the targets aimed are referred to as Quality
Objectives.
The Quality Objectives evaluate the performance of the QMS vis-à-vis the
spirit and intention of the Quality Policy.
The operations of AAAD are guided and controlled by the QMS established
within. The QMS is lead by a formally declared ‘Quality Policy’ (See QM
3.2)
In order to effectively monitor and measure the level of success and the
attitude towards the spirit of the Quality Policy, ‘Quality Objectives’ are
identified as described herein.
In line with the essence and spirit of the Quality Policy, two important factors
viz. the ‘Stakeholder Satisfaction’ and ‘Continuous Improvement’ are
monitored.

(2)
Internal (Human Resources) improvement.
With the control of the Human Resources being mainly governed by the
Government of India (GOI) regulations and guidelines, the appraisal and
consequential actions are all executed through a “Confidential Reporting”
system prescribed within the GOI rules and related notifications. In order to
encourage focus on quality, monitoring and recognition scheme for individuals
is practised as part of QMS as outlined in QM 3.4.
The operation related improvements relate mainly to the “Accuracy” and
“Timeliness” of the various executions.

In order to assess the level of customer satisfaction generally some form of
survey is undertaken. But, in light of the nature of function of AAAD a
formal survey is not practicable. The operational role of AAAD generally
involves many forms of communication on a day-to-day basis thereby
providing the scope of inferring any possible “Customer Dissatisfaction”, if at
all arising.
In light of the above, in order to record any such “Stakeholder Dissatisfaction”
a Register called as “Complaint Register” is maintained.
Even though it is named as “Complaint Register” it is also used for registering
any event leading to possible “Stakeholder Dissatisfaction”, in addition to
registering the formal complaints, if any.
When there is a formal complaint it is registered irrespective of the nature,
size, seriousness and media of the complaint.
During the course of operation of AAAD activities, the customers interact
with AAAD through various correspondences. Their level of satisfaction can
be gauged through them.
The communications, (generally in the form of letters/faxes and occasionally
oral communication) are routed through the CAAA/JCA/DCA prior to
reaching the sections.
These senior members of the Organisation ensure appropriate entry in the
complaints Register (FMT 003) briefing the case or event.
For the other lapses/events the CAAA or JCA or DCA of the organisation
consider the event and its seriousness. After necessary discussion with the
CAAA/MR the event is registered by any one of the above.
Any case of complicated event, the JCA / DCA will jointly discuss and decide
upon the content of the register entry.
A “Deficiency Value Table” (see 10.1.02) approved by JCA/MR for giving
score for events, is maintained within the QMS. The likely dissatisfaction
score for the entries in Complaint Register shall be as per Part A.
The level of stakeholder satisfaction is computed based on the number of
complaints and the total value of dissatisfaction score.

The information relating to the Accuracy (by way of number of days taken
beyond limits) is available in the ICS.
With the networked environment, MR summons the details relating to the
above either from the ICS database or from other Registers maintained for this
purpose.
Guided by the Deficiency Value Table (Part B) MR arrives at the section wise
performance factor.
This section wise Performance Factor is plotted, displayed and monitored by
the MR
In order to encourage focus on improvement in individual contributions to the
overall organisational performance all members (except DCA and above) are
evaluated by the respective supervisor(s). For such evaluations the Individual
Monitoring Guidelines Table (given in QM 10.1.01) is used as a reference
benchmark.
The above evaluation is done every six months and due recognition is
accorded.
–This office aims at minimum 10% improvement each year towards
stakeholders satisfaction.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
General
The organisation, Aid Accounts and Audit Division (AAAD) of the Ministry
of Finance, Government of India, (referred as AAAD) has established a
Quality Management system for its functioning in line with the international
standard ISO 9001: 2000.
The QMS is established for the operations covered by the scope statement
(QM 3.1) and the QMS is aimed for continuously improving effectiveness.
The organisation, AAAD, has identified the various operational processes
throughout the organisation. These processes are briefly introduced in
‘Process Flow’ (QM 2.6) and described in the ‘Procedure Manual’ (Section
2).
An over view of the AAAD operation showing the other stakeholders
interacting with AAAD is illustrated below:

Subsequently, necessary corrective actions are planned and implemented.
These processes are managed and controlled as guided by the QMS which is
in line with ISO 9001: 2000.
Under the operations of AAAD, there is no “outsourcing” carried out for any
of the functions or activities. Certain specialised supports like software
development, consultancy support etc., are, however, hired from outside.
__The control over these activities is carried out through various Agreements
signed with firms/consultants.

The Quality Manual contains the QMS procedures (as mandatory
requirements of the QMS).
The operation description (see subsections QM 2.3 and QM 2.6) describes the
processes and interaction between them.
Scope and Exclusions
The scope of the QMS (QM 3.1) indicates the functional role of AAAD
included in the coverage of the QMS.
The functional activities and those clauses of standardised QMS which
are excluded from the QMS are described below.
The Office functions of the Export Promotion Audit (EPA) and the PAO are
EXCLUDED since these functions are not directly connected to the main role
of AAAD.
The following requirements of the international standard are excluded in the
QMS established in AAAD as justified here under:
Design & development (clause 7.3)
(1)
The operation of AAAD is mainly keeping the accounts of External
Aid as stipulated in the respective agreements. Therefore, AAAD does
not have any scope for Design and Development of any product or
infrastructure.

Purchasing (clause 7.4)
(2)
In light of the scope of QMS, AAAD does not purchase any input
regularly which becomes part of output directly or indirectly. Only
when special services hired as one time input they are done on merit.
Otherwise there is no purchasing involved in the operation.
Validation of processes (clause 7.5.2)
(3)
Since the Account keeping is a proven process over the years, there is
no need or meaning in process validation except for some realignment
of responsibilities for updating the accounts. Therefore, process
validation is not addressed.
Customer property (clause 7.5.4)
(4)
In the AAAD operations, no customer property in any form is likely to
be under the custody of AAAD. Hence, this is not addressed and
excluded from the QMS.
Control of monitoring devices (clause 7.6)
(5)
Since there is no physical product involved, monitoring and measuring
devices are also not relevant and hence not addressed.
Documents Control
The documents required for the operation are controlled and governed by a
documented procedure. (QM 9.1) This procedure ensures that
(1)
The documents are reviewed for correctness and adequacy before
approval.
(2)
Only approved documents are released for use.
(3)
The review and approval takes place even when changes / amendments
happen.
(4)
The user can easily identify the current revision status.
(5)
Relevant versions of documents are available at points of use.
(6)

satisfaction, it is this set of stakeholders whose expectations are of prime
concern for AAAD.
In light of the above, AAAD ensures that AAAD meets the entire stakeholders
requirements including the statutory and regulatory ones.
The level of satisfaction of these stakeholders is also measured with aim to
improve the same.
Quality Policy

Provision of Resources
The AAAD top management ensures that the following resources are
provided:
(1)
Resources that are needed to effectively implement and continuously
improve the QMS
(2)
Resources that enhance the stakeholders satisfaction by meeting the
requirements.
The various support resources available in AAAD are described in the
Procedure Manual.
Human Resources
Those AAAD members whose functional roles bear a direct impact on the
stakeholders’ satisfaction are identified as “Q–Cadre” positions (listed in
10.3.13).
By virtue of the nature of operation, these members are reasonably at the
higher level of the organisation and are educated enough to meet the
operational responsibilities and obligations.
The quality focus of the members are monitored and recognised as outlined in
QM 3.4 of this Manual.
As a division the MOF, these positions as well as other positions of the office
are administered by the Establishment and Administration wing of the
Ministry of Finance. Therefore, the exhaustive data relating to the Human
resources under AAAD are available only with the Ministry.

PRODUCT REALISATION
Planning of Product Realisation
1.
The organisation, AAAD had planned the operational processes to realise the
delivery of service obligations of External Aid accounts keeping. The
planning and the consequent arrangement are in line with the organisational
responsibilities and the QMS objectives.
2.
Since there is no physical product involved, the planning covers the operations
of Aid Accounts as covered in the Scope of QMS. As essential set of outcome
of the planning process the following are determined.
(1)
Quality objectives
(2)
Specific operational process sequences
(3)
Inter linkages and section wise control
(4)
Documents related to the process
(5)
Software and online requirements
(6)
Various checks, checklists and guidelines
(7)
Records to be generated (both in soft as well as printed form) to
demonstrate evidence of operational compliance as well as adherence
to QMS.
Customer-related Process
3.
In the AAAD operations scenario, under the scope of QMS, there is no
commercial activity directly involving any customer. However, AAAD
actually is a part of and represents Government of India for the process of
accounts keeping for the External Aid. As a result, AAAD provides services
meeting the expectations of a set of “Stake Holders” who have some
association with AAAD. These stake holders are:
(1)
Fund Sources/Agencies.
(2)
Fund users/Projects.
(3)
RBI.
(4)
State Governments.
(5)
Ministry of Finance(GOI) and the other Ministries.
(6)
Nationalised Banks.
(7)
Parliament.
4.
In light of the above (customer) stake holders scenario, AAAD has
determined,
(1)
The requirements and expectations of each of the stakeholders.

The formal terms of each Aid are available in the concerned Aid
Agreement. The updation of the agreement details in the computerised
system (ICS) is done following procedure “Master Updation Process”
(3)
The implied and expected requirements from AAAD by way of
correspondence/communication are also compiled.
(4)
Any statutory, regulatory or international requirements are also
addressed.
(5)
Any special/additional requirements are also identified on a case-to-
case basis.
Review Requirements
5.
With the defined scope of operation (see QM 3.1) the Sovereign External Aid
accounts are maintained as provided in the terms and conditions of the
agreement. Since AAAD is responsible only to maintain the aid accounts, the
agreement and its terms are controlled and finalised between GOI(and the
beneficiaries) and the donor agency.
6.
However, the MOF may refer the draft agreement to AAAD for suggestions/
improvements/modifications, when certain new type of agreement is proposed.
In such cases AAAD does a thorough Review.
7.
This review is conducted prior to the formal recommendation for approval of
the proposal.
8.
This review positively addresses any new requirements expected of AAAD
and prepares to meet them by ensuring capability.
9.
The review is done under record and the details of review and the consequent
suggestions are filed in proposal file, which is treated as Quality Records.
10.
In the working of AAAD, the terms of agreement are the governing points and
the agreements are always in the documented form.
11.
When the agreements are formally signed AAAD also gets a copy from the
MOF which is used to update the Master in ICS.
12.
Since the operation of AAAD is ICS based, updating the ICS Master takes
care of all the updations at the working levels.

Customer Communication
13.
The organisation (AAAD) ensures that the stakeholders are communicated
enough to ensure smooth flow of operational processes. This communication
relating to main (critical) milestones of the processes are standardised by way
of stipulated formats.
14.
In addition, AAAD interacts with all the stakeholders using the modes of
communication such as telephone, fax, e-mail and the internet.
15.
This communication covers
(1)
Any matter relating to AAAD’s operation
(2)
Agreements and amendments thereof
(3)
Parliament questions relating to External Aid
(4)
Any complaint or feedback from any of the stakeholders.
16.
The documented procedure “Corrective Action” (QM 9.5) provides for formal
recording of the stakeholders’ complaint/feed back.
Design & Development
17.
Since the process of Aid Account keeping responsibility is entrusted to
AAAD, there is no physical product which is designed at AAAD. Even the set
of services and the accounting procedures are also predetermined by virtue of
the agreement terms.
18.
In view of the above, this requirement of the standardised QMS is not relevant
to AAAD and hence excluded from the established QMS.
Purchasing
19.
In view of the scope of operation of the QMS there is no purchase done at
AAAD, which may have a bearing on the qualitative performance of AAAD.
20.
The input to AAAD is mainly data or information or formal communication
from the one of the stakeholders and the output is also similar.
21.
Some office support material like stationary etc, are also not directly
purchased by AAAD, but processed by a centralised Government agency on
__the basis of request sent by this office.

Product and Service Provision.
22.
At AAAD, service is provided to the stakeholders by way of processing and
maintaining the aid accounts.
23.
These services are provided through controlled condition supported by the
Integrated Computerised System called ICS.
24.
The controlled condition include
(1)
Unambiguous description of the terms involved
(2)
Work instruction / check list / guidelines as necessary
(3)
Appropriate target levels / parameters (including some time targets)
(4)
Certain periodic and special reporting,
(5)
Periodical Preparation of annual Aid Accounts and financial status.
(6)
__This is done through auditing/checking.
Validation of Process/Service Provision
25.
The service provided by AAAD is governed by the terms and conditions of the
agreement and hence there is no scope of process validation. In view of this,
this subsection is excluded from the QMS.
Identification and Tractability
26.
The AAAD operations deal with a number of aid accounts each one of which
is uniquely identified. Every processing is also uniquely identified by way of
claim number, disbursement date, project authority etc.,
27.
Since the ICS is the centralised support for AAAD operation, the activities
carried out at AAAD are recorded in the ICS indicating the vital tractability of
information.
Customer Property
28.
Under the specified scope of operation of AAAD there is no customer (or
stakeholder) property of any kind coming under the custody of AAAD.
Therefore, this part is not addressed and excluded from QMS.
29.
__Documents/Files/Any records received from stakeholders/others are
centrally controlled in R&I Section of AAAD by diarising and further passing
on to the concerned section.
Preservation of Product
30.
In AAAD operation, there is no product involved. However, the account’s
status and the financial figures related to that are all very critical to the AAAD

operation. Therefore, the preservation is meaningful to the extent of
maintaining and safeguarding the account status details.
31.
As above, the ICS data as updated are backed up systematically and is readily
available. The operational requirements leading to correct backup medium are
described in the Procedure Manual.
Control of M&M Devices
32.
In light of the AAAD’s scope of operation no device is needed or used for
monitoring and measuring any parameter during operation.

MEASUREMENT, ANALYSIS AND IMPROVEMENT
1.
At AAAD monitoring and measurement are done in the following areas for
planning and achieving improvement.
(1)
Monitoring conformity of QMS
(2)
Monitoring and measuring improvement in effectiveness of QMS.
2.
This measurement clearly indicates the measurement methods and the random
sampling scheme whenever used.
3.
Since there is no physical product involved in AAAD operation, there is no
product conformity to be monitored or measured.
Measurement of Stakeholder Satisfaction
4.
The stakeholders of AAAD have varied expectations from AAAD. The level
and degree of satisfaction of these stakeholders are monitored by direct
interaction with them by the top management. This is done through formal
and informal correspondence.
5.
Since the Top Management (DCAs and above) are directly involved in
handling these correspondence the information relating to the possible
stakeholder dissatisfaction is perceived at this level. Any such event is
registered in the Complaint Register (FMT 003) maintained with the MR
Subsequently, such entries are evaluated to find out the stakeholder
satisfaction as an important outcome of the AAAD operation.
6.
The descriptions and details of these computations are presented in Section 3.3
and 3.4 of this Manual.
Internal Audit
7.
To evaluate the effective implementation of QMS a feature called “Internal
Audit” is incorporated within.
8.
The vital sequence of activities of this feature is scheduling of the IA annually,
planning and holding the IA as scheduled, reporting the IA findings,
committing and completing corrective action, monitoring effectiveness of
corrective action and referring the outcome to the Management Review.
9.
The QMS established in AAAD maintains an Internal Audit Process governed
by a documented procedure titled “Internal Audit” (QM 9.3)

The procedure covers the responsibilities for various Internal Audit related
activities.
11.
The purpose of Internal Audit is mainly to verify
(1)
Operational arrangements are inline with the international standard
ISO 9001 : 2000;
(2)
Conformance to the QMS standard and
(3)
Effective implementation of the QMS.
12.
Based on the importance of complexities and previous results, audit program
is planned and scheduled.
13.
The procedure prescribes the audit frequency requirements, scope of coverage
and methods whenever relevant. The QMS planned prescribes a set of criteria
for auditors. The MR ensures that he maintains an auditor base consisting of
sufficiently trained auditors.
14.
The audit findings are reported formally in audit reports, which are treated as
Quality Records.
15.
The auditee area in-charge (Section Head) is responsible for identifying and
carrying suitable corrective actions within reasonable time. Necessary analysis
and investigations are initiated as appropriate.
16.
Whenever necessary, a follow-up or verification audit is also planned prior to
formally CLOSING the audit finding.
Monitoring and Measurement of Process
17.
The QMS functioning is monitored by way of possible deficiencies occurring
and the likely dissatisfaction of the stakeholders.
18.
In addition, the time period recording of various important processes are
automatically being recorded in the ICS. These time-period recording are
aimed to study the achievement of planned results and suitable corrective
measures initiated whenever felt needed.
19.
These features are used to monitor and measure the QMS achievements as
Quality Objectives as explained elsewhere.

Monitoring / Measurement of Product
20.
The product output of AAAD is in the form of service of various type to all
stake holders. Therefore, the measurement is for certain service factors or
some “processing time” are measured at appropriate stages of the process
chain.
21.
The processing is centralised through a computerised system called ICS,
which maintain the records of the processing. The criteria are built partially
into ICS and partially in the form of checklists.
22.
At ICS the authority who passes/approves the content of the accounting
process is indicated and recorded, and these records are treated as quality
records.
23.
The service delivery is done only when the planned arrangements and
stipulated checks are satisfactorily completed.
24.
The individual members are evaluated for reliability and recognised
accordingly. The performance of sections is compiled through Performance
factors. The details of these evaluations are presented in QM 3.4 of this
Manual.
Control of Non-conforming Product
25.
In the operational process of AAAD non-conforming product can be in the
form of any “Claim” or any other “document” not fulfilling the requirements.
These are termed as “Rejected” and treated as prescribed in the documented
procedure Non Conformity Control (QM 9.4)
26.
These “rejected” items are suitably marked, identified and controlled avoiding
unintended passing/forwarding of the same.
27.
These items are handled by considering
(1)
Through stipulated checklists / guidelines
(2)
Possibilities of direct co-ordination to eliminate the non-conformities
(3)
At specified authority levels through suitable tolerance / concessions.
28.
The operation process is mainly ONLINE in a computerised environment and
the “Rejected” ones are recorded and these records are treated as Quality
Records.

29.
In the AAAD operation, such items can not be corrected or modified at AAAD
end. They are either “Rejected” or treated as “Rejected” or passed under due
concession by duly stipulated authority level only. Therefore, re-verification
is not relevant and hence not done.
30.
Draft forms of correspondence are also treated as non-conformance till they
are formally approved by the concerned officer through the act of signing on
them.
31.
Since the process does not involve physical product, post-delivery non-
conformance is not relevant.
Analysis of Data
32.
For monitoring, controlling and improving the QMS a clear set of data are
collected and analysed. These are as prescribed in “Quality Objectives” (QM
3.4) and these data relate to
(1)
Stakeholders’ satisfaction levels.
(2)
Operational processing time duration.
(3)
“Claim” conformance trends.
Improvement
33.
Continual Improvement is the focus point for AAAD operations. The driving
force and guiding points of the AAAD are the Quality Policy, Quality
Objectives, Audit Results, Management Reviews.
Corrective Action
34.
AAAD, through the operational processes takes action to eliminate the causes
of non-conformities in order to avoid recurrence. Suitable corrective actions,
matching the non-conformities encountered, are initiated and effectiveness
ensured.
35.
The QMS maintain a documented procedure (QM 9. 5) wherein
(1)
Non-conformities are reviewed
(2)
Customer complaints are registered, reviewed and attended
(3)
Non-conformities are analysed for root causes
(4)
Recurrences are avoided
(5)
Specific corrective actions are decided
(6)
Records of corrective actions are maintained
(7)
Corrective actions are reviewed for effectiveness.

may be.
Procedure
6.
Each of the QMS Record is suitably collected and stored in appropriate media
such as file cover, bunch, Register floppy etc.
7.
All the QMS records are identified by the Mark of “Q” either in printed or
rubber stamped impression on the right hand top corner of the “QMS Record’
or its storage media or both. This is the General identification and in addition
to the respective unique format no. if any.
8.
Each QMS record is associated with a controlling authority (CA) who is
responsible for monitoring and improving legibility and retrievability. The
CA is independently responsible for devising and maintaining a storage
system for the respective QMS records.
9.
QMS records are gathered and bundled suitably at the close of every financial
year (31
st
March). This is done during the 1
st
half of April every year under
the direct supervision of Management Representative.
10.
Prior to such bundling, these QMS records are referred to as “ACTIVE”
records. Guided by the “Life period” each bundle bears visible markings
giving all necessary information including the target date for ‘disposition’.
11.
For the purposes of disposition, each QMS records is marked with a ‘Life
period’. The indicated life period starts after the bundling indicated in step 4.
12.
The Management Representative organises disposition of QMS records once
in a year after ensuring correctness and verifying all details.
13.
For the purpose of QMS operation many of the day to day activities carried
out in ICS are also involved. The online records relating to the ICS are
governed by the regulations and authorisation provided for this purpose as
described and controlled by the Procedure Manual.
14.
Any “temporary removal” of record from its normal location, for any purpose,
is done only after placing marker sheet/card describing the complete details of
the removal. Short reference during current operation, however, is not
temporary removal.
15.
The respective CA is responsible for the safety and protection of the QMS
records during the “Active period”. However, Management Representative is
overall responsible for the QMS records control.

NON-CONFORMITY CONTROL
Purpose
1.
To describe the sequence and responsibility relating to the control of non-
conformities occurring during the course of regular operations.
Scope
2.
All types of operational non-conformities in the form of un-approved draft
correspondence or documents / records.
Responsibility
3.
Management Representative
General Description
4.
In the AAAD operations covered by the scope of QMS (sec. QM 3.1) no
product of physical nature is involved.
5.
The non-conformities are likely to be encountered only in the form of
documents not fit for further passage/despatch/processing.
6.
These non-conformities may be in form of some incoming papers (such as
claims etc.,) or outgoing correspondence (such as letters, sanctions etc)
7.
The incoming items not meeting the requirements are held or rejected for
processing and are known as “HOLD” items.
8.
Those outgoing correspondence or reports or results not finally approved are
known as “DRAFTS”.
Procedure
9.
Whenever any “HOLD” item is identified, the concerned member of the
section fixes the rubber stamp reading HOLD on the first page.
10.
Subsequently, the same may be reviewed and either “approved” or “rejected”
following appropriate procedure.
11.
Hold items are generally treated as provided in the checklists maintained for
such purposes.
12.
But, due to operational urgency and case conditions, the section head, at times,
waives the requirements and approves deviations.

Whenever, a HOLD item is deviated only the concerned approving authority
decides on that.
14.
Such deviated approvals are recorded on the face of the HOLD items as
prescribed in the related procedures. (For example: If a hold claim is deviated
and approved, the concerned process flow covers that)
15.
In case of “DRAFTS”, the correspondence generated for transmission is
finally approved by the signing authority. Till such (final) signing it is treated
as DRAFT.
16.
Generally, all the preparatory works are destroyed when the final signing is
done, there by eliminating non-conformities. (Drafts)
17.
But, however, in some cases due to the importance of the matter / contents
such items are retained for reference. Such “DRAFTS” are anyway
maintained unsigned (or initialled with suitable remarks and thereby
controlled.

CORRECTIVE ACTION
Purpose
1.
To describe the sequence of activities that identify the need for corrective
action and responsibilities relating to effective implementation of the same,
under QMS
Scope
2.
All consequential actions under the QMS arising out of external complaints
and “Alarm Note”. This procedure, however, does not cover corrective
actions that are carried out based on Audit findings.
General Description
3.
The functioning of AAAD is such that the external agencies notice the
operational mistakes and point out through correspondence. Irrespective of
whether they are complaining in nature or not, the operational mistakes are
treated as ‘Complaints’.
Procedure: Complaints Handling
4.
All complaints (irrespective of the media, nature or source) are registered in
the “Complaint Register” (FMT 003) under the custody of the MR.
5.
Even oral complaints are also formalised by writing a “Complaint Sheet” by
the person receiving the complaint.
6.
After the entry, the complaint is forwarded to the CAAA for grading.
Grade A - Very serious and urgent
Grade B - Major
Grade C – Minor
7.
When the complaint is registered (with a number) and graded, the JCA ensures
a formal acknowledgement to the complaints.
8.
For all the Grade A cases and for other selected cases an “Alarm Note” is
generated by the Jt. CAAA.
9.
When the complaint is satisfactorily handled the Joint CAAA completes the
register entries and “Close” the complaint by stamping “Closed” both on the
complaint and in the register.

The “Alarm Note” is separately handled and closed as described below.
Procedure: Alarm Note
11.
Alarm Note is an instrument formally initiating review and investigation of
any non-conformity or complaint fit enough for thorough study.
12.
An “Alarm Note” is raised by anyone and is put up for approval by a Deputy
controller or above.
13.
The approving authority ensures the initial entry in the “Alarm Note Register”
and fixes the reference number to the “Alarm Note”.
14.
The register is normally under the custody of the MR.
15.
The approving authority also identifies the investigation officer for the case
while approving.
16.
The investigation officer marked is provided with all data and support needed.
17.
The result of the analysis and the possible corrective action is recommended
by at least, a deputy controller.
18.
The proposed action is approved by Jt. CAAA or CAAA.
19.
Subsequently, the concerned person/section ensures the corrective / preventive
action.
20.
After monitoring as necessary, if satisfied on the effectiveness of the action
the investigation officer may propose “Closure” of Alarm Note”.
21.
Then, after considering all possible angles, the “Alarm Note” is closed by
stamping “Closed” with due remarks and signatures.
22.
The records of results of the corrective action are clearly briefed or referenced
either as remarks on the Alarm Note or as separate additional attachments.
23.
The “Alarm Note” is closed by the MR / JCAAA / CAAA.
24.
The register entries are also closed.
25.
The Jt.CAAA / MR is responsible for preparing a summary of “Alarm Note”
status for discussion in MRM.

The possible root cause and circumstances leading to the situation is well
analysed.
8.
Subsequently, based on the potential seriousness an Alarm Note is raised as
prescribed in Corrective Action Procedure. (QM 9.5)
9.
The MR who identifies the investigation officer entrusts the responsibility of
identifying, planning and implementing suitable preventive action to the
suitable person.
10.
The preventive action is monitored and verified for effectiveness.

SALIENT FEATURES OF ICS
Rev. No. : 0
Page 1 of 1

Approved by
Management Representative Date : 15/09/2004
SALIENT FEATURES OF ICS
1.
The Integrated Computerised System (ICS) is the centralised accounting
system functioning at AAAD through the LAN existing in AAAD. The
background and description of ICS is presented elsewhere. (see. QM 2.7)
2.
The salient features of ICS are discussed below.
On line Accounting
(1)
All the documents and processes concerning aid flows are uniquely
numbered and the accounting is done on line through various
processing cycles.
Authorisation
(2)
The ICS is loaded on a server at AAAD and is accessed by the users
through the LAN. The various input to ICS are approved through
specified levels of authorisation. These authorisations are through
specified controlled passwords.
Front-end Correction
(3)
Any data entered incorrectly can be corrected through appropriate
rectification/adjustment entries and the process is known as Front-end
correction. This is limited to certain identified fields only.
Back-end Correction
(4)
Avoiding Front-end corrections, access is available to the database
through the system administrations for monitoring and emergency
purposes. Corrections to data base directly through this window is
known as Back end correction.
CS – DRMS Compatible
(5)
The CS-DRMS package is mainly used by AAAD to compile and
generate different reports relating to debt portfolio analysis. When ICS
was developed and implemented, in order to avoid duplication of data
entry efforts, all the data available in ICS can be transferred to CS-
DRMS through a routine developed for this purpose.

Management Representative Date : 15/09/2004
Screens and Reports
(6)
Since each account is uniquely numbered, the accounting is direct and
convenient. This is carried out through selective set of screens from
more than 150 possible options and a wide variety of reports from
more than 300 possible options can be generated.
On-line Updating
(7)
The ICS being on-line, any updation in ICS will provide updated
information to the web site users.
Reminders to users
(8)
In order to remind action for initiating repayment etc., suitable
warnings called ALERTs are automatically popped up thereby
ensuring timely actions.
Standardised Correspondence
(9)
As a part of the accounting process, at selected events suitable ready
made correspondence are prompted so that the concerned party is
formally informed as needed.
Reconciliation
(10) The final closing of various transactions happens only when the
transaction is completed by the banks/funding agencies. When the
corresponding closing takes place the accounting is suitably matched.
Any unmatched accounting are listed out for reconciliation.
Registers and Statement
(11) The data in ICS is maintained (or available) in the form of various
operational registers in line with the operating process cycles, such as
Claim Monitoring Registers, Withdrawal Application Report,
Disbursement Register, Payment Advice Register etc.
Master Updation
(12) The ICS function is based on the Master generated for each aid
account. The Master is updated through due authorisation.

Back-up
(13) The ICS is functioning from the EDP. The data in ICS is very
important and is backed up following specific guidelines as described
in the Procedure Manual.
Supplementary Function (CAS)
1.
The actual fund release is done at PF-I of the MOF based on the
recommendation from AAAD. Therefore, a supplementary part of
computerised software Central Assistance System (CAS) under
supplementary function is installed at the PF-I where the ACA fund release
document is identified and used to post in the ICS for completing the cycle.
Updating CS-DRMS database
2.
CS-DRMS package implemented at AAAD is primarily used for carrying out
the portfolio analysis and reporting external debts to international monitoring
agencies. Both the computerised system implemented at AAAD require entry
of transaction into their respective databases (i.e. CDB for ICS and DRMS for
CS-DRMS). To avoid duplication of work a separate module has been
developed in ICS that automatically transfers the information maintained by
CDB to CS-DRMS package.
Website Module
3.
The information relating to the activities performed by AAAD is periodically
published on the AAAD’s website, which requires periodic updation as the
information maintained in ICS changes with each transaction. In order to
avoid manual process in updating the website, a separate module has been
developed in ICS. This module automatically summaries the external
assistance information and generates the HTML pages required for updating
the website. Depending on the nature and criticality of the information, the
periodicity of updation is decided.
Hardware Infrastructure
4.
The computing infrastructure at AAAD consists of servers and desktops
connected through Local Area Network (LAN). Two servers have been
installed. One server is exclusively used for CS-DRMS (Unix, Informix) and
the other for ICS (Windows-NT, SQL Server). All the desktops are window-
based and are equipped with the office automation tools (MS Office).

OPERATIONAL INTERRELATIONSHIP OVERVIEW
1.
The Fund source (external) and the user (projects) are the ones between whom
the commercial transactions take place. But, since the GOI is either directly or
indirectly involved in the external aid/loans/grants it is responsible to maintain
the accounts and monitor the repayments.
2.
Thus, as a representative of GOI, the AAAD caters to the above function
being a part and answerable to the MOF.
3.
The actual money authorisation is formally released by PMU/ PF-I department
of MOF. The role of AAAD is limited to the accounting and monitoring
function.
4.
On the basis of the formal authorisation, RBI releases the funds to the
respective State Governments. The State treasuries in turn release the funds to
the project authorities.
5.
When the repayment falls due, with or without advice from the funding
agencies, AAAD is responsible to initiate the repayment process.
6.
This is, mainly carried out through the nationalised banks as per the agreement
terms through the RBI.
7.
The currency of transactions is as per the aid agreements.
8.
In addition, a special account is also maintained with RBI for managing some
specific aid, particularly that of World Bank and ADB.
9.
The above outlined operational transactions are illustrated below
