  9. 9. Member Testimonials: “As a new board member of the Public Sector Accounting Standards Board of Kenya, one of our first priorities was to come up with a financial reporting framework. I found the International Public Sector Accounting Standards: Roadmap to Implement Compilation Guide for Developing Countries prepared by the ICGFM Ad Hoc Committee on International Accounting Standards very helpful. We were able to use it as a basis to draw up a road map from cash basis to full accrual.” - Anne Owuor, Kenya
  10. 10. Member Testimonials: “In Brazil, Public Financial Management (PFM) reform started in 1999 when Congress approved a law to govern expenditure management. Since then, public financial management is an essential part of the executive, legislative and judiciary branches of government. Simply using the tools of public financial management that I learned at the ICGFM Conferences since 1999, I was able to generate major savings.” - Dr. Alex Lima, Brazil
