Benin - Control Institutions Support Project (PAIC) - Project Completion Report (PCR)
In Benin as in other countries of the sub-region, public finance management is undergoing profound change with the gradual introduction of results-based management alongside the streamlining of traditional a priori expenditure controls. For long, these controls were one of the causes of bottle necks in implementing public programmes and projects. However, despite significant efforts since 2000 to manage public finances according to the new approach, many negative factors continue to blight performance indicators, for instance the inadequate internal control system notwithstanding fiscal reforms implemented and the high number and weakness of internal and external control organs.
