Objective: To Improve trust in Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) assessments through process endorsement.
In order to enhance the trust of users outside the lead agency in the quality of individual assessment reports,and address past quality concerns, the PEFA partners decided that some indication of quality be openly attached to PEFA reports. This requires that the Secretariat checks published good practices in the process of implementing a PEFA assessment (covering both the planning and implementation phases) have been used, and on that basis, issues a ‘process quality endorsement’ to be known as the ‘PEFA CHECK’. French and Spanish versions will be available in due course.
PEFA CHECK will be granted by the PEFA Secretariat to all reports submitted for review and fulfilling the formal requirements set in six criteria relating to the quality assurance process applied during the planning and implementation phases of the assessment.
