The aim of the International Framework: Good Governance in the Public Sector is to encourage better service delivery and improved accountability by establishing a benchmark for aspects of good governance in the public sector.
IFAC / CIPFA
The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) have together developed the International Framework: Good Governance in the Public Sector.
Growing awareness of the substantial role of poor public sector governance in the sovereign debt crisis and other public sector failures has made the appropriate application of governance standards and arrangements more pressing than ever. The Framework aims to encourage more effective public sector governance and better governed and managed public sector entities.
