The PEFA supplementary framework for assessing gender responsive public financial management facilitates the collection of information to assess the extent to which countries’ public financial management (PFM) systems respond to differing needs of men and women, and subgroups within these categories. 

The Framework is now available in four  Languages: EnglishFrenchSpanish and Portuguese.

The framework has nine indicators distributed across the budget cycle and can be applied at both national and subnational levels.

The framework document includes guidance for assessment teams on how to apply the framework. 

The guidance introduces the framework and provides information on the definition and objectives of gender responsive PFM assessment. It provides an overview of the context and key trends in the application of GRPFM and presents detailed measurement guidance including clarifications and definitions for a set of key questions to assess a country’s performance in applying gender considerations to its PFM systems, processes, and institutions. 

The guidance also includes country case studies highlighting examples of the use of gender responsive PFM in various countries and regions around the world.

The PEFA Tonga GRPFM 2020 Assessment is the first Public GRPFM Report and is available on PEFA Website.

Additional information could be obtained from the GRPFM Website.
