    Course Description

    This one-week workshop on Implementing Modern Cash Management, offered jointly by the South Asia Regional Training and Technical Assistance Center (SARTTAC) and the IMF Capacity Development Office in Thailand (CDOT), is designed to provide participants with techniques and tools to update government cash management processes. Cash managers are increasingly being asked to provide current information on cash flows while facing challenges in gathering financial information and evaluating the possible impacts on cash balance. This workshop will help participants understand how a multi-pronged approach to cash management can help to improve existing practices and how to present their information for effective decision making.

    Course Objectives

    The overall objective is to enable cash managers to modernize cash management and identify ways to improve the forecasting data on government's cash position. This can help guide short-term financing decisions, including support the decision of an appropriate level for the cash buffer. It will expose participants to the main pillars of modern cash management. Through a series of exercises and discussions, the workshop will prepare them to improve processes for:
    a. Integrating cash management with Treasury functions;
    b. Enhancing the expenditure control framework with cash management;
    c. Improving the forecast of the government's cash flows and its cash balance position;
    d. Optimizing institutional arrangements for updating cash management; and
    e. Including cash management in a crisis.

    Participants will be participating in hands-on sessions for using the IMF cash flow forecasting tool and preparing a presentation for the decision makers. Case studies and country presentations will be used as group exercises for practical application of concepts and learning.
