FSVC works to promote transparency and accountability in developing and emerging market countries by strengthening public financial management (PFM).  On the supply-side, FSVC’s PFM programs promote international best practices in budget management and execution, cash management, procurement, internal controls and internal/external audit across government institutions. On the demand-side, FSVC also encourages transparency and accountability by training civil society organizations (CSOs) on best practices in budget advocacy, establishing coalitions and watchdog agencies, and launching media and public awareness campaigns.
