Voices on Public Sector Accounting
Take a closer look at what our PULSAR community has to say about the PULSAR program and working on public sector accounting reforms on the video.
PULSAR Promotes Government Accountability, Transparency, and Performance
Government activity accounts for a major part of gross domestic product (GDP) and government assets and liabilities are usually substantial in all economies. It is therefore important that they are effectively managed and that governments are accountable for this management to their citizens, their representatives, investors and other stakeholders. Government finance statistics provide information on the accounts of the different sub-sectors of general government so that policy makers and other stakeholders are able to analyze the financial position and performance of government and the long-term sustainability of public finances. The main sources of these statistics are the accounting records and reports of the various government entities, supplemented with financial information.
