 About PEFA

The PEFA program aims to strengthen public financial management and accountability systems and improve knowledge of the quality and scope for improving public financial management performance. The program seeks to achieve this aim through the application of PEFA assessment methodology, performance reports, research, analysis and application of PEFA results. The PEFA methodology is in over 150 countries.

The PEFA program is directed by a Steering Committee comprising seven partner organisations: World Bank Group, International Monetary Fund, European Commission, UK Department for International Development, Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The PEFA Secretariat, hosted by the World Bank in Washington DC, assists the Steering Committee in the development and maintenance of the program. It also provides global support to users of the PEFA methodology through advice, guidance, training, research and information.
