Whats the benefit of using UCS
Benefits of using country PFM systems Policy brief 3: Sector audiences The aid effectiveness commitments agreed upon in Rome, Paris and Accra call for an increase in the use of partner country systems, in particular the national budget and Public Financial Management (PFM) systems.
Recent assessments show that less than half of aid to governments currently uses partner country PFM systems,1 and that progress has been slow over the past few years.
This briefing is aimed at donor and partner country sector-specialist staff. It provides a general explanation of what using country systems means and why it is important, considers the specific perspective of sector level issues, and highlights the benefits of using country systems and relevant good practices.
