We offer consulting support in the design and implementation of programs and projects in the area of public finance management (PFM). Our experts have strong expertise in the following areas: public debt management, policy-based budgeting (e.g., MTEFs and program budgeting) and performance budgeting, inter-governmental fiscal relations, budget classifications, financial control, external audit, state-owned enterprises, external scrutiny and oversight (e.g., Parliamentary control), as well as fiscal transparency and accountability of public sector institutions.
We provide needs-based training for civil servants and other stakeholders on a wide range of topics in PFM, and offer strategic advice on the formulation and implementation of fiscal policy. Our services also include the provision of tailored products to optimize the allocation and distribution of public resources (e.g., education and health care) or undertake ambitious reforms (e.g., pension system and social safety nets). Our team can also lead or support sectoral or thematic public expenditure reviews (PERs), public expenditure tracking surveys (PETS), and/or Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) assessments, and has significant experience and knowledge of these diagnostic assessment tools
