Introduction to Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA)

Every country faces the challenge of how to use public resources efficiently and effectively. Without good public financial management (PFM), governments may find challenging to use public funds to deliver essential services or focus on their long-term goals. How can countries’ PFM be evaluated in a way that supports sustainable development?

With the PEFA Framework, we can assess and understand the strengths and weaknesses of a country’s PFM system and use this information to support improvements. The PEFA Framework has become the gold standard for assessing PFM performance – with over 650 assessments done in over 150 countries around the world at all income levels.

This four-module self-paced e-learning course will provide an introduction to the PEFA Framework, how to understand and use it, and the process involved. The course also presents examples, offers guidance documents and background material. Participants will be invited to complete quizzes to test their understanding throughout the course. Participants will receive a course completion certificate after successfully completing all quizzes in each of the four modules.
Please contact PEFA Secretariat with any question through
It takes approximately 4 hours to complete the e-course at your own pace.
