What are the Key Elements of a Successful PFM Reform Program?

Our government advisory services enable governments to develop effective reform agendas. This consulting is technology agnostic – we never recommend “rip and replace” of Government Resource Planning (GRP) components with FreeBalance software unless there is no workable alternative.

These government advisory services are designed to:

  • Country Context
    We’ve adapted mainstream business strategy approaches to the public sector for a more objective determination of the country context within which governments operate.
  • PFM Sequencing
    A structured analytical approach yields effective plans that include prioritization based on context, logical mapping of inputs based on dependencies. This approach also identifies how governments can improve their PEFA scores.
