Finance Reform Programme

Established in 2014 to implement the new Finance Operating Model (FOM), the Finance Reform Programme (FRP) aims to change how Finance operates in the Health Service. 

It is considered to be the single most important non-clinical priority of the HSE and a key pillar of wider Health Service improvement and aims to ultimately deliver better value and cost savings to patients.

The programme aims to implement:

  • new operating structures and new ways of working
  • standardised financial management processes
  • a new single national integrated finance and procurement system IFMS (SAP 4 Hanna)

These changes are being delivered in parallel across three pillars (click on pillar to find out more):
