2.4.4 Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) assessment of public financial management
in Yobe State 2006–2008

An assessment of public financial management (PFM) in Yobe State covering the fiscal years 2006–2008 was done using the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) framework. The assessment provided a baseline for measuring the effects of reforms and for developing reform action plans. The report provides a detailed account of the performance of PFM systems, processes and institutions.

The assessment found that the legal and regulatory framework for public financial management and institutional arrangements had many of the prerequisites for putting in place sound PFM practices. Yobe State had made a considerable effort to establish the foundations for sound PFM in many areas. However, the assessment indicated that there was still serious work to be done in ensuring PFM would enable fiscal discipline, strategic allocation of resources and efficient service delivery.
