A New IMF Fiscal Affairs Department's Publication: the Technical Notes and Manuals
Posted by Michel Lazare and Richard Allen.
The IMF has just launched a new series called: Technical Notes and Manuals.The first three issues have been authored by the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department.
They deal with:
- A Basic Model of Performance-Based Budgeting by Marc Robinson and Duncan Last Download FAD Technical Manual 1
- Transition to Accrual Accounting by by Abdul Khan and Stephen Mayes Download FAD Technical Manual 2
- Modernizing Cash Management by Ian Lienert Download FAD Technical Manual 3
Earlier versions of these Technical Notes and Manuals were previously issued as part of a series of technical notes on our PFM blog.
Future issues will include topics in revenue administration, tax and expenditure
policy, and public financial management. Other IMF departments may also contribute notes to these series.
These notes and manuals aim at raising awareness among practitioners,
officials and academics of contemporary fiscal topics; and improving the dissemination of
FAD's TA advice. In particular, they will allow us to disseminate to a broader audience the advice now included in our TA reports, or provided through other advisory services.
