3. Ghana - The Context ?Neo-patrimonial? character of State Ineffectiveness of civil service major constraint (morale, incentives, politicisation, poor controls) Pay consumes too much of budget and causes over-runs Internal resistance to change High level of donor support with distortionary effects (e.g. salary supplementation) Macro-economic shocks (cocoa, gold, oil, currency) Consolidation of democracy Vibrant media and civil society have emerged Recent positive developments

4. The PFM Interventions Introduction of VAT Upgrading the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Database system (IPPD) Budget and Public Expenditure Management System (BPEMS) Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) Decentralisation of financial management in the health sector (part of a SWAP)

5. The Introduction of VAT (1993 to 1995)

6. The Re-introduction of VAT (1997 to 2000)

7. Integrated Payroll and Personnel Database ? replacing earlier system

8. Budget and Public Expenditure Management System

9. Introduction of Medium Term Expenditure Framework

10. Decentralisation of Financial Management within Health Sector

11. Some Lessons Identify political economy issues up-front Importance of flexibility on timescales Importance of incentives - institutional and individual (government and development partners) Doing well on the process of PFM reform cannot make up for problems with the content Importance of the relationship between PFM reform and civil service reform Easier to succeed where ? small unit, clear mandate, freedom from system wide constraints

12. Suggested issues for discussion Can we plan to move at the partner government?s pace? Do our systems and notions of our own accountability get in the way of this? Is our approach to IFMIS too procurement focussed? Does it undermine flexibility by forcing too many decisions to be made up front? How can development partners support government programmes, rather than ?their? projects within government programmes? How can PFM reform and civil service reform best reinforce each other? How can budget support change the dynamics? Does it make it easier to work in partnership on PFM reform?
