    Course Description

    Digitization of public financial management (PFM) processes has seen accelerated progress in the past year aiming to ensure efficiency in operation during times of crisis. It has supported administration of safety nets, improved delivery of services and more effective cash and debt management. Yet, the task remains unfinished.

The seminar will also explore the way in which a digital PFM system can interact with other systems to facilitate good governance.
