The study set out to examine organizational culture, empowerment, job-satisfaction and their effect on to commitment to the implementation of the integrated financial management system by Government of Uganda in both central, local government and agencies. A conceptual model was developed by then researcher which demonstrates the relationship between organizational culture, as an independent variable and empowerment and jobsatisfaction as moderating variables and their effect on the dependant variable commitment to the implementation of the IFMS. The research objectives set out to determine the significance of the correlation between the independent variables and dependent variables. A cross-sectional survey design was adopted to take a snapshot of events as they existed at that particular point in time. The instruments were developed to capture the constructs of organizational culture, empowerment, jobsatisfaction and the commitment to IFMS implementation. A sample size of 200 respondents was randomly selected. 120 respondents representing 60% were realized and considered satisfactory. The results indicated strong and significant positive correlations between organizational culture, empowerment, jobsatisfaction and commitment of IFMS implementation. The study concludes that organizational culture influences empowerment of employees implementing IFMS and all constructs organizational culture, empowerment, jobsatisfaction and significant correlations with commitment to IFMS. The study therefore, recommends that various change initiatives in the public sector in Uganda need to build a conducive, enabling culture that fosters empowerment of staff leading to jobsatisfaction with a resulting maximization of commitment to public sector integrated financial management system implementation. The delivery of services by Government of Uganda to its citizenry should uphold the principles of governance namely transparency, accountability, efficiency, effectiveness.
