Abstract

The government usually has always had problems with revenue mobilization. One way of

ascertaining the effectiveness of a government is its ability to mobilize funds.

Governments all over the world are faced with the general problem of ineffectuality in

revenue mobilization and tracking. This often leads to the unavailability of adequate

funds for the effective provision of services and infrastructure by government. A

Revenue Mobilization Application (RMA) is created primarily based on a geo-database.

This application consists of four modules which are geo-database, and detailed map of

Kwadaso Municipal Assembly (KdMA). The geo-database comprises the property column, owners of property, revenue and revenue collector. If the application system is adopted and replicated in other MMDAs, t will eventually increase the tracking, update of data and general mobilizing of revenue.
