Speaking Notes for Media Briefing By Hon. Minister of Finance On The Public Financial Management ACT, ACT 921
The passage of this Act has become necessary to codify the best practices that have emerged with the implementation of major reforms in budgeting and accounting since 2010 under the GIFMIS project. In addition, continuing fiscal challenges which require some structural changes are addressed in this Act. There are also provisions setting out new policy measures regarding borrowing and debt management among others.
As you know, the Ministry has been implementing major structural reforms in Budgeting, Accounting, Payroll management, Revenue management, Debt management and Auditing over the past five years. We believe that the passage of the law will tie some of the key reforms together and provide a more coherent and overarching framework for the fiscal management of the public sector.
