More effective and efficient policy-making can be realised by a public finance management system that places transparency and the seamless sharing of data at its heart. A PFM system should ensure that funds reach their intended recipients and are used for their intended purpose. And it must give the central budgetary authority accurate and regular reports of how its resources are being used, providing it with the information necessary to formulate and design fiscal policy.

The advent of digitalisation promised simplification and efficiency. However, since each entity involved in the finance management and budget delivery process uses their own systems, the consequence is often a huge duplication of effort — financial and nonfinancial reporting conducted anew at every level, requiring manual reconciliation. This duplication wastes time and resources. A more automated process would not only cut down on this, but also reduce the incidence of costly mistakes. A key challenge in the construction of an efficient PFM system is to address these problems.
