The evaluation of public financial management reform is one of several joint evalua. tions undertaken under the umbrella of the OECD s Development Assistance Com. mittee which are focused on issues identified as key for using country systems and. where looking at donor assistance collectively makes more sense than trying to attrib. ute results to a single actor, The evaluation involved three main components a literature review published.
in 2009 a quantitative study published in 2011 and finally three country case. studies It is through the three cases Burkina Faso Ghana and Malawi that the. evaluation has been able to look in detail at the context and mechanisms that make. PFM reforms successful, The importance of good public financial management for the effectiveness of. the state has become increasingly clear over the years Good public financial man. agement supports not only good governance and transparency but is also crucial for. effectively delivering the services on which human and economic development rely. For these reasons many bilateral organisations and multilateral institutions consid. er public financial management to be a priority The evaluation units of the African. Development Bank AfDB the Swedish International Development Agency Sida. and Danish International development Assistance DANIDA commissioned this. evaluation on behalf of a larger group of donors, We are now entering a second generation of PFM reforms so learning the les. sons from past experience is crucial The added value of the country case studies is. that they analyse the context and mechanisms which make for successful PFM. reforms The report identifies lessons for countries going through PFM reforms. including the importance of high level buy in and leadership alongside effective. coordination It also identifies lessons for development partners which include. resisting the temptation to push for reforms where the context is not right and mak. ing sure the advice they provide is high quality and relevant to the setting The. evaluation observes a general improvement in donor coordination and alignment. while noting that it is those inputs which are not integrated into government owned. programmes that most often fail And on both sides flexibility is needed even the. best planned projects often need adjustments, Beyond this evaluation the challenge now for both countries going through. reforms and for their development partners is to apply those lessons in practice to. get better results in future, The three organisations that commissioned the evaluation and the teams that. carried it out would like to express sincere thanks to those individuals and groups. that played a role in the evaluation process In particular this third phase of the. evaluation would not have been possible without the cooperation of government. officials and local PFM experts in the three country case study countries.
