Togo starts assessing its public finance management system

(Togo First) - The Togolese government officially started assessing its public finance management on May 17, 2022. The launch ceremony was attended by the country’s technical and financial partners, such as the European Union delegation in Togo (represented by Joaquín Tasso Vilallonga, head of its Delegation) which supports the initiative.

On the occasion, Sani Yaya, Togo’s minister of finance, said the PEFA-based assessment "covers the years 2018-2020 and will allow to better manage public finances towards implementing Togo’s projects contained in the Government Roadmap 2025."


The assessment will be carried out in four steps: launching the evaluation, training major stakeholders, drawing and validating the methodological note, conducting fieldwork for finalizing data collection and analysis, producing and pre-validating provisional reports, and holding a restitution and dissemination workshop where the final reports will be be be presented.

Results of the assessment, which will cover the entire public administration and the ministries, are expected by the end of the year.

"The implementation of these activities will provide our country with a new basis for assessing the performance of public financial management and the consideration of gender and climate change in public management," added Minister Sani Yaya.
