What do we want to achieve?
PFM Policy Bases Master plan for modernizing the financial management system of the government Executive Order 55 (s. 2011) directs the integration and automation of PFM systems Improve efficiency, accountability and transparency of public fund use Contribute to good governance and fiscal discipline as a strategy for inclusive growth and poverty reduction
Reform Objective Clarify, simplify, improve and harmonize financial management processes and information systems in the whole of government and as necessary reengineer and integrate relevant systems in COA, DBM, DOF and implementing agencies
Desired Outputs A Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS) and a Treasury Single Account (TSA) by 2016 Real-time on-line monitoring and control of obligations and direct links to cash disbursements Consolidated financial management reporting requirements using harmonized classification of budgetary, treasury & general ledger accounts A single treasury account for more effective cash management, reconciliation of bank balances and to remove revenue/expenditure floats A predictable and streamlined allotment and cash release program Regular in-year reports on budget execution, and timely year-end audit reports Systematic recording and reporting of all liabilities including guaranteed and contingent liabilities

“To ensure both the adequacy of public resources and the results per peso spent, we need a stable and enabling PFM system… comprehensive enough to cover the moment when taxes are collected to the point where suppliers of government are paid, and up to that point when the auditor takes stock of how these funds were used. This PFM system shouldn’t be purely financial, for it has to take into account the actual, concrete results on the ground brought about by the use of public resources.” “There’s more to PFM than merely installing a new ICT system or shutting down bank accounts… through PFM we ultimately want greater accountability to be embedded in how we in government use the people’s hard-earned taxes.” -- DBM Secretary Florencio B. Abad PFM Roadmap Briefing 8 March 2012
