Abstract

­

Generally, the purpose of the study was to examine the roles and adaptation of Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) Free Balance, on public finance management and service delivery in South Sudan. The research adopted a mixed-method research design where qualitative and quantitative data were gathered using questionnaires, interviews and document analysis. The study used multistage sampling to pick the respondents for the questionnaires and interview. Results of analysis were presented in tables, various independent variables, identified as; Accountability, transparency, decision-making support, Management and efficiency-oriented and evaluation. Each attribute was analyzed in relation to the effect it has on Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS). Both Secondary and primary data were the main source considered as important source of this study by researchers. The primary data was subjected to tabulation using Advance excel as well as SPSS Software. Mixed method approach was significant qualitative and quantitative. The findings relate to the research questions that guided the study. The presentation of the results was done in line with specific objectives that guided the study.The researchers encountered many limitations while conducting the research when collecting the data. This study was limited to just four independent variables. These variables are not the only ones which determine implementation of IFMIS in National Government departments, as indicated by the strength of the analysis. The study was ones again limited by boundaries Government departments, where as IFMIS is implemented in the entire country, with even National Governments adopting it. Practical implications, originality/Value the study was that National Ministry of Finance and Planning should improve the financial data, organizes and makes access to financial information easy. The study concluded that, policies without appropriate implementation interventions are not effective in promoting IFMIS implementation. The study recommended that government of South Sudan to work on staff competency, right from recruiting qualified personnel, and embracing on on-job training on IFMIS operation.

Abstract

­

This paper analyses the impact of new market entrants on the pricing patterns of the mobile network operators in the East African Community under complete information. The study verifies whether incumbent mobile network operators within the East African Community engage in limit pricing when faced with threat of entry by analysing the pricing patterns of 21 incumbent mobile network operators for the period 2000-2019 within the Community’s member states. The study examines panel data using geographical distance as a proxy to the threat of entry. The results reveal that the pricing patterns of incumbent mobile network operators are consistent with limit pricing.

Abstract

­Limit pricing is a very interesting issue in industrial organization. This is a case where firms with market power, when faced with a threat of market entry, charge a very low price that is lower than their marginal cost for their products or services in order to prevent the entry of new potential competitors or prevent their smaller competitors from expanding their business.  This they do to protect their market dominance. After successfully deterring entry, the incumbent firms then revert to charging higher prices. Previous theoretical studies show that this strategy is viable in the presence of information asymmetry. Competition Authorities and other regulatory agencies treat limit pricing as anti-competitive and illegal. This research paper theoretically analyses limit pricing among telecommunications companies by way of linear demand equations within an oligopoly framework involving one dominant incumbent and fringe firms under complete information. The analysis proves that dominant firms can use their market power to engage in limit pricing in the absence of information asymmetry concerning the true operating costs among the incumbents. This finding is of great help to Competition Authorities and other policy makers in ensuring that dominant firms do not abuse their market power. This ensures fair competition among all the market players irrespective of their market share.
