Public Sector Roundtable
For updates, follow #PSroundtable
The 5th edition of this roundtable series is a unique opportunity to get to know more about public sector accounting and how it could help governments to better manage their resources.
See our recent briefing paper that highlights the key benefits of adopting accrual accounting and its contribution to governments’ financial decision-making.
FEE has organized a series of roundtables in 2014 and 2015. The roundtables touched upon topics around harmonising European public sector accounting, the potential conceptual framework and the governance model. They brought together European and national policy makers, representatives from the public sector, accountants and auditors from across Europe and beyond.
