1.0 Event Brief
Efficient public financial management enables the provision of essential public services to citizens towards raising living standards. It further ensures continuous economic development and proper governance of the country. Since the enactment of devolution in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, PFM in Kenya has faced new forms of challenges especially in accountability by county governments.
As the government strives to establish proper systems, individuals working within the systems should also hone their knowledge and skills to complement these efforts. Mastery of the relevant standards in accounting and financial reporting, particularly IPSAS, is therefore crucial in supporting the move towards stellar management of public funds.
This seminar is tailored to improve the quality of general purpose financial reporting by public sector entities as well as keep professionals informed on the dynamic financial reporting field. Specific areas of focus include:
