Publication(Washington, DC, 2009-07) World BankThe purpose of the assessment is to provide the Montenegrin authorities with an internationally-recognized benchmark evaluation of the performance of the Montenegrin Public Financial Management (PFM) systems in order that they may thereafter consider the systems' strengths and weaknesses and develop strategies to strengthen them. The assessment comes at a critical juncture. After double-digit growth in 2007, economic growth has slowed considerably. On the fiscal side, the boom contributed to fiscal surpluses which cannot be sustained in the current economic climate and additional challenges in fiscal management have emerged. The potential to contain recurrent expenditure and implement institutional reforms on the integration path will require increasing efficiency in public administration. The management of the surge in tax and other revenues represented a special challenge for the government particularly given the significant revenues realized from the-one-off foreign investment in privatized state-owned enterprises. The level of public debt, which had steadily decreased over the past few years will be more difficult to contain, particularly in view of the highly pro-cyclical nature of economic policies. The PEFA assessment focuses primarily on the national level of a country's PFM system. PFM improvements now under consideration could contribute substantially in responding to those challenges.
Publication(Washington, DC, 2007-11-10) World BankThis fiduciary assessment makes recommendations to strengthen public financial management in the Kyrgyz Republic, including procurement. This report takes stock of developments since 2002 within the Public Financial Management (PFM) Framework. It identifies the recommendations that have been implemented, and it lays out a road map to implement remaining reforms. It provides a basis upon which the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (GOK) can formulate a capacity-building plan to improve its fiduciary system. Donors can use the results of this update in two ways: first, to develop strategies for assisting the capacity development plan; and second, to mitigate risks in individual operations. The country can use the information to monitor its fiduciary systems and the extent to which ongoing reform initiatives are improving performance. This assessment was prepared in close collaboration with government counterpart teams and other donors. The teams analyzed relevant pieces of legislation, gathered feedback through workshops, and conducted interviews with the Government, the private sector, and civil society. The report incorporates comments on earlier drafts and suggestions received from the government, including the Ministry of Finance (MOF), the Chamber of Accounts (COA), Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and the State Agency on Public Procurement and Materials Reserve (SAPPMR).
