Phalina Bajracharya

Senior Project Budget and Contracts Officer

I have been a Senior Project Budget and Contract Officer (Sr. PBCO) at IOD PARC since 2022, having joined as Finance and Administration Officer in 2017. I joined IOD PARC after the completion of master’s in business management and have recently completed a master’s in Rural Development, as my time with IOD PARC has motivated me to further enhance my knowledge academically.

My vocation for smooth operation and administration of the organization’s finance and project management, backed with my robust knowledge on finance and accounting principles, taxation policies, income tax procedures, planning and implementation of system for cash flow management, budgeting, internal control, risk management, and compliance, has brought the factors that constitute and accelerate progressive transformation to my role as Sr. PBCO.

Currently, I contribute to the fulfillment of financial and contractual obligations and commitments in accordance with set standard of organization policies and procedures. I lead, train, and supervise the finance team based in Nepal. Liaise with and resolve associates and clients’ queries, claims, and disputes. I ensure ongoing general administration and preparation of financial reports and services, cash management over broad portfolio of projects and report directly to the Finance Manager. I gained much of my expertise managing the project budget and contract for a range of multilateral organizations, multi-donor trust funds, bilateral government agencies, NGOs, foundations, and private sector organizations.
