Financial Management and Comptrollership

Financial Management and Related Comptrollership functions are seen to differ substantially in public sector organizations from private organizations, this in consideration of the more complex operations and greater demands for public transparency and accountability. Public sector organizations increasingly depend on more advanced financial management and comptrollership practices that link the results of budgeting and spending back to initial policy goals or performance targets set for the organization, all in a context of clear cut accountabilities. This requires more effective management of resources and a shift from accounting or book-keeping 'control' to 'performance' and the management of results.
