The Road Maintenance Fund Administration (RMFA) was established by an Act of Parliament under the Road Maintenance Fund Administration Act 2010, and signed into law by his Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, on 15th April 2010.

The Board of Directors has been constituted and approved by parliament in June 2011.

As provided under Part III of The Road Maintenance Fund Administration Act 2010:

“The object for which the Administration is established is the proper, efficient, economic and sustainable management and administration of the Fund.

Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1), it shall be the function of the Administration to-

Our key implementing partners are the Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA) charged with the responsibility of the maintenance of both Primary and Secondary roads, and the Local Councils who have the mandate for the maintenance of rural feeder roads as provided under the Local Government Act of 2004.

Other stakeholders that The Fund will interface with include, the Petroleum Unit, Oil Marketing Companies, The Sierra Leone Road Transport Authority, National Revenue Authority and other line/ service ministries such as:

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security
The Ministry of Works, Housing and Infrastructure
The Ministry of Health and Sanitation
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology
The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development
The Ministry of Transport and Aviation and
The Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources. 

The Board and Management of the Road Maintenance Fund Administration will meet with Local Councils in January 2012, to discuss and agree on the feeder roads maintenance programme.

The  Management of the newly established  Road Maintenance Fund Administration (RMFA) has paid a working visit to the Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA) at their Kissy Head office to familiarize itself with the management of SLRA, initiate discussions on forging a good working relationship, and set the stage for the Boards of the two institutions to meet and continue to engage in productive bilateral deliberations to enhance sustainable funding and timely maintenance of our national road network
