(Washington DC time)
Public financial management (PFM) arrangements at the subnational level are likely to depend on arrangements determined by the central government in national legislation or national constitution. PFM arrangements can vary considerably by country. Variations reflect differences in, among other things, population and geographic size, governance, functions and responsibilities, administrative traditions, and the degree of operational discretion.
Since the first use of the PEFA assessment framework at the subnational level in 2006, around 279 PEFA assessments reports have been prepared at the subnational level in 47 countries. PEFA has been used in a wide range of SNGs, representing different tiers/layers of government and revenue-states, municipalities, regions, districts, oversea territories, for standalone assessments or coordinated assessments of several SNGs of the same country.
