Bill Dorotinsky of the IMF to discuss Global Trends in Public Financial Management Reform on June 18 DC Forum:

Bill Dorotinsky, Deputy Division Chief in the IMF Fiscal Affairs Department, will speak on some of the global trends in public financial management reform. Public financial management has certainly moved center-stage in the international development fora, and also continues as a key focus of upper and middle income countries.

What are some of the trends in terms of types of reform, reform objectives, and public financial management system progress? Are there lessons for sequencing of reforms? Bill's career spans the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Treasury Department, World Bank, and most recently the IMF. A recent IMF effort to help countries and public finance professionals keep-up with development in the field and internationally is the PFM Blog, available at http://blog-pfm.imf.org
