Public financial management

MannionDaniels works with state institutions to reform and strengthen public financial management (PFM) systems.

We follow a risk-based methodology, engaging with public sector bodies and donor partners to design PFM reform programmes that improve accountability, reduce fiduciary risk and strengthen financial controls. We focus on promoting a stronger public sector that is more capable of delivering public services, and on ensuring that donors can engage confidently with the institutions of government in beneficiary countries.

Our fiduciary risk specialists have delivered the financial management components of the AmplifyChange Fund, and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office's (FCDO's) UK Aid Direct and UK Aid Match funds. We have extensive experience working with the different funding modalities of donor governments and we deliver end-to-end solutions that mitigate the risks of grant funding across organisations that range from grass roots charities to international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) and government ministries. Our methodology emphasises knowledge-sharing and capacity-building to strengthen the target institution and deliver change in a sustainable way.
