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.
New PULSAR Knowledge Products Available
Two new PULSAR knowledge products have been generated under the PULSAR program. The Benchmarking Guide for Integrating Public Sector Accounting (PSA) and Government Finance Statistics (GFS) aims to inform practitioners and public sector accounting reforms by highlighting the differences between International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) and GFS reporting guidelines such as the IMF Government Finance Statistics Manual and the European System of Accounts. The Accrual Based Accounting Core Competency Framework has been prepared to support Governments in implementing and sustaining reforms toward the adoption of accrual based accounting by defining the necessary competencies required by finance professionals to carry out such reforms.
