Reforms of public financial management (PFM) systems are a key area of support that development partners and the World Bank in particular provide in many post-conflict environments. This eight-country comparative study seeks to capture experiences, successes, and challenges with PFM reforms in post-conflict contexts in systematic ways and to use such a mapping as a basis for lesson learning and recommendations for this important area of support to state building.
Invited by the Organization of Latin American and Caribbean Supreme Audit Institutions (OLACEFS), a regional institution related to INTOSAI, the PEFA Secretariat participated in a workshop held in Lima (Peru) from August 20 to August 23.
The new phase will start on July 1, 2012 and be for a duration of five years. It includes a broad agenda of new initiatives to achieve its overall objectives, including an enhanced program of global outreach to all PEFA stakeholders, a comprehensive review and revision of t he PEFA Framework in order to maintain its relevance and a new procedure of endorsing the quality assurance process for PEFA assessment reports.
The objective of the first PEFA Open Forum was for the PEFA Program to open a discussion about its achievements – as highlighted in the external evaluation conducted in 2011 – and latest developments, and more importantly, to launch the Phase 4 and discuss the strategic orientations of the Program with PEFA clients and practitioners. It represented the first step in the institutionalization of the broader PEFA outreach to its stakeholders.
