Are Governments Trusted to Buy Wisely and with Integrity?

PFMConnect, a public financial management consultancy, has this week launched a worldwide online survey to assess the public acceptability of procurement practices adopted by governments and other public sector organisations.
BRISBANE, Australia - June 1, 2015 - PRLog -- Are governments around the world spending public money in a way that is best for their countries and promotes confidence in the policiesand integrity of public services?

Governments are responsible for spending huge sums of public money on service delivery such as schools, hospitals and roads. A substantial proportion of this money goes on contracts for goods and services obtained through a wide variety of procurement practices. PFMConnect is giving ordinary citizens worldwide the opportunities of completing a public perception survey to register their approval or concern about the way their governments conduct such procurement arrangements.

Good procurement practices are necessary to:

·         * Obtain effective service delivery;

·         * Ensure that public money goes as far as possible;

·         * Encourage a strong and competitive business sector;

·         * Defeat the debilitating effects of corruption.

The lives of ordinary men and women can be greatly improved by the proper organisation of procurement arrangements by governments.

Members of the public in any country can participate in the survey. The survey will remain open until 16th August2015. PFMConnect will report the results on its website on a national and regional basis.

The survey results are expected to assist governments and other interested parties to identify key targets for the improvement of procurement practices and to validate public perceptions of improvements already made.

Note: PFMConnect is a consultancy designed support the development of good standards of public financial management in order to improve public service delivery, extend public accountability, encourage local business development and combat corruption. Its work is principally centred on developing countries, working in cooperation with governments and other stakeholders.
