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.
