Nexus PFM Consulting works at the nexus or intersection between PFM or public financial management (i.e. how governments manage finances) and the work of elected, representative bodies such as parliament or sub-national legislatures. The premise of our work is that while the executive branch is responsible for the bulk of public financial management processes, elected bodies such as parliaments and sub-national legislatures have an important role to play in contributing to the budget process, advocating for improved fiscal and debt transparency and strengthening legal frameworks.
Nexus PFM conducts capacity assessments and provides training and technical assistance to not only diagnose but also strengthen the role of parliament in PFM. Areas of expertise include the role of parliament in oversight of public debt and the role of parliament in gender budgeting in addition to a more general expertise in strengthening parliament’s overall contribution to the budget process.
