Publication(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2019-03) World BankA World Bank (WB) mission undertook an assessment of the government's debt management(DeM) capacity and institutions in Maldives during March 20-29, 2019, at the request of theMinistry of Finance (MoF). The objective of the mission was to assess the DeM strengths andareas in need of reform through the application of the Debt Management Performance Assessment (DeMPA) methodology. This is the second evaluation for Maldives; the first DeMPA was conducted by the WB in 2009. The MoF has implemented a series of public finance management reforms in legal and institutional arrangements since the last DeMPA. Treasury operations have experienced a complete overhaul, including the rolling out an Integrated Financial Management Information System (SAP) to government entities on Male', establishment of a Treasury Single Account (TSA) and the development of cash flow forecasting procedures. The coverage of the debt management system, the CS-DRMS, has also been expanded and is now used as a central database for almost all debt obligations (excluding Islamic instruments). The DeMPA methodology, revised in 2015, provides a comprehensive set of indicators spanning the full range of DeM functions and is used for in-depth analysis of government debt management functions and institutions. The results of the assessment help the central government authority to take stock of the current DeM situation and design medium term priority reforms. The results of 2019's assessment for Maldives demonstrate many broad-based improvements implemented in Maldives and provide highlights of pending reforms.
Publication(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2016-09-01) World Bank GroupThe Subnational DeMPA is a methodology for assessing subnational debt management performance at the level of local government through a comprehensive set of indicators spanning the full range of subnational debt management functions. The SN DeMPA methodology was revised and aligned to the updates of the sovereign DeMPA during 2015. The objective of the 2016 update of Subnational DeMPA methodology is to revise the evaluation criteria in line with the changing practices for subnational government debt management and requirements of the client countries, as well as to take into account revised criteria of the sovereign DeMPA methodology which took place in 2015. The revised methodology combines the original SN DeMPA Tool and Guide into one unified methodological framework. Substantial revisions and additions are made in order to address the issues that arose during the earlier assessments. A revised Subnational DeMPA tool (2016) comprises of five core areas, 13 DPIs and 31 dimensions, which are applied to evaluate the capacity of the subnational borrower to manage the debt portfolio. This methodology is applied starting September 2016. For any additional information or questions, please contact: Lilia Razlog, Senior Debt Specialist, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
