The PFM Coordination Department in collaboration with the Office of the Auditor-General has conducted a one-day seminar on promoting Accountability, Transparency and Good Governance.

The objective of the seminar was to create an enabling environment for public debate on transparency, accountability, and good governance and to enhance the capacity of Public officials and Civil Society Representatives in understanding best practices for realizing improved accountability.

Participants were drawn from civil society representatives and relevant public institutions, including Office of the Auditor General, Accountant General Office, Attorney General and members from the Public Accounts Committee of the House of Representatives.

The participants have had interactive discussions on key challenges and opportunities in promoting transparency to achieve accountability for effective public institutions.

The PFM is designed to improve the government’s capacity and systems to utilize public funds, towards meeting the National Development Plan (NDPII) goals and those of Vision 2030.
