Governance and Public Finance
Over half the world’s population expresses distrust in government institutions. Citizens, communities and businesses are demanding more efficiency, accountability, and higher quality services from governments. At the same time, geopolitical and environmental concerns are challenging governments to work together in ways that have never been contemplated previously. Worldwide, there are increasing calls for public finances to be managed in a way that is open, accountable, inclusive and efficient.
GDSI provides technical assistance to create the systems for delivering high quality public services in a financially sustainable way. In some cases, this can be achieved through the development of new administrative tools (like e-Government) that allow efficient service delivery and minimise the opportunity for corruption in government. We can also help you design organisational or procedural reforms within the public administration and can draft the legislative bases for these reforms. In the area of public finance management, we can carry out PEFA assessments and help you to introduce systems that incorporate result-oriented budgeting, public procurement, auditing and financial control systems.
