An important outcome of the global financial crisis is recognition that public financial management is critical to management of the fallout as well as to prevent future crises. New approaches to the core elements of the PFM cycle have been developed and interest has grown in the experience of countries around the world in strengthening their budget institutions and increasing fiscal transparency. In its 28th Annual Conference, the International Consortium on Governmental Financial Management (ICGFM) will explore the innovations in PFM that have emerged as well as practices that are recognized as effective.
Topics that will be highlighted at the Conference include:
• Managing the changes associated with PFM reform
• Innovations in public procurement
• New approaches to assessing risk in PFM systems
• Professionalization of the PFM workforce
• Strengthening internal audit
• Understanding sub-national risk
• Modernizing debt analysis
• New approaches to combating corruption
• Revisions to the PEFA assessment framework.
