Background: In Sudan, inequitable sharing of wealth generated from the natural resources or non-resource revenues, remained a source of contestation between the central government and regions. Such issue often combined with other deficient of governance, regional disparities and allocation of power factors to tend to play a variety of roles in pursuing major of the current civil conflict and obliterate peace in the country. Nevertheless, even though, the peace accords, especially those were signed between the central government and armed movements of the south, west and east Sudan in 2005 and 2006, had stipulated founding of new fiscal's arrangements and institutions. Yet, optimum distribution of wealth in the country didn't achieve. Objective: The aim of this paper was to identify wealth sharing channeling during the interim period (2005-211) followed the signing of peace in 2005, mainly National States Support Fund (NSSF) and Fiscal, Finance, Allocation and Monitoring Commission (FFAMC), as well as appraise the efficiency of these two institutions. Results: used a content analysis technique, to analyze a body of data that contains documents, reports, articles and interviews. The results of the paper revealed that, the both examined institutions were failed to fulfill their responsibilities regarding fair distribution of wealth to the Sudan's regions due a lack of practical criteria, lack of transparency and contradiction among the government fiscal bodies. Conclusion: We have shown that institutions reform drawing on multi-level governance and legislation reform is a perquisite for optimal allocation of wealth and support bringing peace in Sudan.
