The PEFA Secretariat is seeking to engage highly qualified research firms to provide research support toward investigating the role and impact of Public Financial Management (PFM) in supporting fiscal transparency and public accountability. The overall aim of the consultancy is to contribute to the knowledge base on the performance and impact of PFM systems and related interventions. The proposed research should be relevant for PFM policy and operational discussions. Research products should help to address gaps in knowledge on fiscal management, improve understanding of how to strengthen the capacities of country PFM systems, or contribute to the practical sequencing of PFM reform and capacity development actions. PEFA will provide up to US$50,000 per proposal and will fund up to three of the best proposals.
