Training programme

This training provides participants with an understanding of Public Finance Management (PFM) in all its aspects. The course focuses on Public Finance Management in-depth and builds up knowledge on all aspects of PFM step by step, highlighting the inter-linkages between the different elements. This enables participants to become fully acquainted with the various aspects of PFM and to gain insight in how to apply the acquired knowledge in PFM to the reform agendas in their own countries.


The training programme emphasises the three main objectives of PFM: 1) promoting macroeconomic stability by achieving aggregate fiscal discipline; 2) enabling that policy priorities are implemented in an effective way (allocative efficiency); and 3) contributing to an efficient implementation of government services (operational efficiency). The international ‘good practice’ combined with the practices in the Netherlands and in target countries are the starting point throughout the training course. Besides technical ‘good practice’, the soft side of PFM such as institutional and cultural aspects, is taken into account.


Target group

Senior civil servants of the Ministry of Finance, the Court of Audit, financial / budget department of a line ministry, etc.
