Government Resource Planning (GRP) and Public Financial Management (PFM) Reform Sequencing


February 5, 2013

Doug Hadden, VP Products

We released a set of Public Financial Management (PFM) documents last week following on our mandate of sharing good practices for the community.

The third released document, embedded below, describes good practices in Government Resource Planning (GRP) sequencing. This is one of the most difficult subjects in PFM. I can’t tell you how many times that I’ve heard the notion that reform sequencing is an art form rather than a science. The consensus seems to be that country contexts differ so much that there cannot be a set of principles or guidelines.

I fundamentally disagree with the notion that good practices in PFM reform sequencing cannot be formalized. We’ve had a lot of experience in developing countries going back more than a decade and have seen patterns emerge. We’ve also formalized an internal process called Governance Valuation that we’re updating thanks to the explosion in open data. I’ve embedded a presentation from last year explaining this process.
