Carefully Krafted Consultation
Public Sector Development
Kraft’s work includes developing guidance to help donors and partner countries in developing approaches on the use of country systems in different country contexts (middle income, low income, fragile states); for different components (planning, budgeting, accounting, auditing); and for different aid modalities (budget support, project support). This includes setting out recommendations on how specific systems can be used (such as public financial management) to ensure development practice contributes to strengthening partner country systems in a sustainable manner.
This approach applies a holistic lens to supporting public sector reforms, linking policy areas and actors that have previously been separated, such as revenue and budget execution, and relating core strategic functions of core public sector institutions with broader accountability factors. It also takes into account the 'soft dimensions’ of public sector reforms, such as change management issues.
