The Philippines–Australia Public Financial Management Program (PFMP) is a long term partnership between the Governments of Australia and the Philippines to improve the efficiency, accountability and transparency of public fund use in the Philippines.
The Australian Government has committed A$ 30 million to the program for a period of five years, from its commencement in October 2011 up to 2016.
The PFMP is assisting the Philippines Government to implement its Philippine PFM Reform Roadmap: Towards Improved Accountability and Transparency, 2011–2015. This comprehensive PFM reform agenda aims to clarify, simplify, improve and harmonize the financial management processes and information systems of the civil service in the Philippines.

A pioneering program that aims to enhance the technical skills and competencies of the PFM workforce in the oversight and spending agencies is in the pilot testing stage, as part of the broader PFM reforms underway in the Government of the Philippines (GOP).
The PFM Certificate Program is an initiative developed by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the PFM Committee, and supported by the Philippines-Australia Public Financial Management Program (PFMP). It aims to make ongoing PFM learning solutions available to PFM practitioners to support job performance and career growth.
The Program’s full curriculum is envisioned to have six (6) learning tracks aligned with the GOP’s PFM Competency Frameworks and delivered through a network of government and learning providers. It will cover core or foundational PFM competencies, budgeting & performance, procurement, accounting, auditing, and cash management when fully implemented.
