THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

IPSAS & Public Finance Management Seminar

DATE: 26th – 28th April, 2017

VENUE: Silver Bells Hotel, Isiolo

The Quest for Results: Strengthening Public Sector Performance

Background

Lack of transparency and poor public finance management are major issues ailing government institutions today. The country’s leadership faces outcry from outraged Kenyans on the widespread fraud and fund misappropriation in public institutions. A uniquely interdisciplinary field, PFM combines public administration, accounting, economics and political science, making it a complex function of government institutions. These organizations are seeking to reform through education of stakeholders and institutionalization of structures to curb these challenges. Further, organizations are increasingly appreciating the importance of International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) and adopting them as a tool for improving financial reporting as well as decision making.

PSASB serves the crucial role of tailoring the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to the public sector and providing practical guidelines to ease implementation of the standards. While many IPSASs are consistent with IFRS, some instances and public sector practices such as non exchange transactions require a departure from the available standards. Additionally, there are alternative ways to implement IPSASs, with some institutions opting to adopt Cash Basis IPSAS to ease transition into accrual based IPSAS.

ICPAK has therefore organized this workshop to enhance public finance management knowledge among delegates and ensure in-depth mastery of IPSAS in the public sector.
