In 2015, based on a preliminary assessment of needs in public financial management in Ukraine, this country became the third beneficiary / partner country of our PFD programme component of the SR-UNDP “partnership project”.
The draft needs assessment report for public financial management (PFM) reform in Ukraine and the action plan for PFM reform implementation in the third partner country of our PFD programme were developed. The assessment focused on starting phases of the budget cycle – policy review, macroeconomic forecasting, strategic planning, linkage between strategic planning and budgeting, where most weaknesses were observed. The action plan includes proposed short and medium term actions in each phase to address identified weaknesses. Capacity building and IT support are also included.
