نبذة عن الدورة التدريبية

The recent financial crisis and associated financial safeguards implemented across all business sectors have seen even greater pressures exerted on public budgets with governments and public sector entities encountering growing pressure to provide high-quality transparent financial statements, clear and decisive financial management approaches and enhanced operational allocation and performance measures related to public funds. IPSAS (International Public Sector Accounting Standards) provides a sounds basis for public entities to demonstrate sound accrual accounting and budgeting techniques, and with its emphasis on performance-based management being a core competency, requires entities to adopt a fresh and innovative approach to developing new skill sets.
