Building Institutions to Fight Corruption (BIFC)

Fiscal Policy

The training—to be presented by IMF staff and led by the Fiscal Affairs Department—will set out a detailed road map to identify and address vulnerabilities to corruption in the public financial management cycle. It will cover systems and institutions for both revenue and expenditure management. It will also present indicators and red flags that can alert policy makers and oversight agencies of possible challenges and weaknesses, and the potential macro-fiscal implications and costs of corruption. The course will include examples and case studies from the region. This course aims at helping country authorities build their institutions and skills to fight corruption.
