Public Finance Management Reform: Case Study Slovakia (Facilitated)

The overall objective of the course is to present the complex nature of the PFM reform in a practical way. The knowledge embedded in the course can serve the participants as a basis for developing their own PFM reform programs, or simply learning from the experience of other countries as they debate/evaluate PFM in their own countries. Upon completion of the course, the participants should have a solid understanding of reform process such as those implemented e.g. in Slovakia, including the sequencing of reforms, the successes and failures, and cross-cutting challenges such as political economy and capacity building.

The e-course will consist of 6 modules and successful completion of all modules will result in a certificate. The modules, facilitated by experienced practitioners from Slovakia, will be interactive, with on-line lectures and exercises. The participants will also be required to complete readings and assignments at home. Content will be available in text and multimedia format. The course will be made available through the World Bank’s group’s Open Learning Campus for two years in both self-paced, and facilitated formats.

The e-learning course complements the existing on-the-ground development initiatives of the Slovak Ministry of Finance in sharing country´s PFM expertise and also enriches the OLC library of learning. The course was developed by the Open Learning Campus and the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic with expert contribution by the Slovenia - based Centre for Excellence in Finance. The distinct feature of the proposed course is its practical character of a case study.

Target Audience

The course will be open to participants from all over the world, although the primary audience will more likely hail from Europe and Central Asia (ECA) and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions. The course will be designed for participants with a basic understanding of PFM, which they can acquire either via an existing OLC e-course or other resources. The course will be most useful for public finance policy practitioners from Ministries of Finance and line ministries, as well as PFM experts from political parties, civil society groups, and academia.

Public Finance Management is an important and interesting topic that I want to explore its depts to be able to carry out the exercise on my own when the need arise. I hope to get great insights of countries' experiences and the practical aspect of PFM reviews.

I am in the public finance space for a while and eager to learn the experiences from transitional economies. Those experiences will help African countries in using public money to help alleviate poverty
