The overall objective of the project support partnership is to strengthen the quality, relevance, sustainability and visibility of SECO's Macroeconomic Support Section's projects and programs. Targeted on-demand support in the areas of PCM, strategy development and policy dialogue and communication will furthermore strengthen SECO's reputation as an engaged donor that provides substantive policy advice and strategic inputs, and implements high quality projects.
Lot 1 of the partnership focuses on expertise in the broader area of PFM reforms, and in particular the PEFA methodology and its operational application. In particular, we will
- provide support to the preparation of a PEFA assessment and provide inputs to research activities that the PEFA Steering Committee mandates (in particular in order to strengthen insights on the drivers of PFM reforms)
- provide inputs to national PFM reforms plans and PFM proposals from development partners, in particular with respect to reform sequencing
- provide inputs on fiscal decentralization reforms as well as backstopping for subnational PFM projects.
