GOPA Consulting Group is a leading consulting group dedicated to performing and effectively contributing to international cooperation and global development. More than 800 staff members in seven independent consulting companies, along with 5,000 international and local experts are currently working in approximately 800 projects worldwide. Founded in Germany in 1965, GOPA Consulting Group has a long history of delivering outstanding results in nearly all service fields in line with the SDGs and in a wide array of countries, from stable societies and high-growth economies to challenging environments affected by political conflict or poverty.
Part of our success is based on the conviction that private sector actors in development cooperation need to act efficiently and effectively while managing taxpayers' money in a responsible fiduciary manner. It is imperative for GOPA Group entities to have a strong financial reporting form and controlling in all the locations in which projects are implemented worldwide. The GOPA Group started piloting WINPACCS in 2015 in two subsidiaries, now the vast majority of the Group entities rely on it. The Group entities have also rolled out the WINPACCS Cashbook 2 and WINPACCS Accounting 4 update in 2020/21. All the projects’ postings are forwarded to our company accounting system on a monthly basis. Supported by staff in our different headquarters, we have also contributed to the training of many local accountants in the use of WINPACCS and we proudly rely mostly on local qualifications to support our development endeavours.
Our know-how is built on 50 years of planning and implementing projects in many sectors and countries. In development cooperation, we believe that the private sector can work most efficiently with taxpayer’s money, and this is the root of our success. Introducing WINPACCS in all our projects testifies to this.
WINPACCS helps our local colleagues to easily input their costs through the interface and perform the monthly accounting quickly; this allows timely reporting and invoicing to our clients.
