Event Description

Towards Narrowing the Corruption Space

For investors wishing to operate in developing countries,  thinking about corruption can be daunting. 

Corruption is wide spread in the public finance management (PFM) systems of a number of developing countries. 

This phenomenon may be written of as indicative of moral or cultural deficiencies.  But pursuing that rationale does not lead to productive ways of curbing corruption.  In practice, many developing countries experience corruption principally in the areas of revenue management and public procurement – both areas where the public sector interfaces with the private sector.

Idilmat offers a three-day professional development workshop provides an excellent foundation for evolving strategies for narrowing the corruption space in the practice of PFM.

The incidence of corruption increases with the levels of opportunity and discretion of public officials and decreases with the transparency of public finance procedures, the effectiveness and application of sanctions and also the capacity of the professional cadres. These findings point to ways for effectively narrowing the corruption space.

The workshop itself is designed for people with little or no experience with public finance management; however it will be useful for participants to familiarize themselves with basic economic and accounting concepts and terminology prior to attending the course.
