A key feature of a professional and credible public service is transparent and accountable financial management. In a rapidly changing and often challenging public sector environment, public servants are seeking new and creative approaches to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of their work.

This collection of case studies, broadly drawn from Commonwealth developed and developing countries, examines innovations in public financial management and provides practical information on best practices and recommendations for new initiatives. It will be valuable for public sector leaders and policy-makers as they work to improve their public financial management systems.
