ODI Conference: public financial management for better public services

This two-day conference invites ministers, civil servants and leading academics working across finance, health and education to reflect on why and how public financial management does, and does not, deliver for public services. We explore:

  • Is a focus on service delivery just about repackaging old reforms, or is a more substantive rethink of the role of PFM needed?
  • Should public finance management have a role to play beyond simply getting inputs where they are needed when they are needed?
  • How can governments make use of improved analysis to inform resource allocation decisions?
  • How do regulations set at the centre of government affect decisions taken by downstream service providers?
  • What scope is there to promote accountability for the delivery of effective services?
  • How might the next wave of technological advances support improved resource allocation and use?
