INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

 (Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

PUBLIC FINANCE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE FOR AFRICA

Theme: Rethinking PFM in Africa – Towards Good Financial Governance

Venue: Leisure Lodge Beach & Golf Resort, Diani Beach (South Coast) – Mombasa, Kenya

Date: 24th– 26th April 2019

1.0  PRELUDE

African governments continually recognize the value for reforming management of public finances. The objective of these various reforms initiated are geared towards the attainment of discipline in managing public funds, reduction of corruption, improvement of service delivery, enhancing transparency and accountability in the public sector, promoting economic growth and the attainment of long-term objectives such as the sustainable development goals.

The focus on public finance management is motivated by donor conditions, increasing need for transparent and open governments, enhanced legal framework guiding public finance management and the strong advocacy for citizen participation in government projects and budget making process.

As part of the reforms, countries are supposed to adopt IPSAS as the basis of preparing financial statements for government which should culminate in the consolidation of financial statements for the entire government. Further, the use of automation through IFMIS has been adopted by African governments to enhance efficiency in the utilization of public funds. The success of these reforms is yet to be fully realized despite rigorous efforts.

In a series of ICPAK CPD events, this conference has been organized to deeply discuss the thematic areas herein:

  • The Place of Public Participation in PFM – Is Effective Participation Achievable?
  • Fiscal Accountability and Transparency – Re-looking at the Role of the Legislature
  • PFM Reforms and Budgeting – Evidence from Kenyan Devolved Units
  • Automation of Public Sector Audits and PFM – A Case of the Office of the Auditor General, Kenya
  • Revisiting the IPSAS journey – A Continental Perspective
  • Transparency in Public Debt Management – Is It a Fallacy?
  • PFM and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Opportunities and Challenges
  • Government Consolidated Financial Statements – A Review of the Kenyan Status and Shallenges
  • Public Debt Contracts in Africa – Are They a Trap?
  • Tax Reforms for Economic Growth – Evidence from Kenya
  • The Effect of Customs Unions in Regional Economic Growth – A Look at the East African Community
