The World Bank's Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability

Description

The World Bank’s Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) is a methodology for assessing public financial management performance. It identifies 94 dimensions across 31 key components of public financial management indicators in 7 broad areas of activity. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 134 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the PEFA.
