The mission worked closely with the Accountant General and senior officials of the Treasury, and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED) to gain an understanding of the existing accounting and reporting framework and discuss major areas that would be affected by the planned move to accrual accounting. These discussions helped the mission to develop a high-level conceptual design of the accounting and reporting framework under an accrual International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS).
