Previous DC Forum:

Cross-Sectoral Public Financial Management Programming: Ensuring Effectiveness and Sustainability

November 1, 2017

Our Speaker:


Lawrence Daum
Capacity Building Division Chief (Acting),
E3 Bureau, Office of Economic Policy,

USAID delivers development assistance around the globe. To ensure efficiency in aid delivery Public Financial Management (PFM) programming must deal with the political economies, local systems, and issues in each sector and for each population because it affects them all. They in turn impact how well PFM systems work and the fiscal health of USAID’s partner countries. Good governance and good economic governance are critical to sustainable development, and must be delivered in forms useful to all sectors for maximum effectiveness. I also hope to address how this cross-sector focus can influence the sequencing of assistance.

Our Speaker:

Lawrence K. (Larry) Daum is an experienced international development, public financial management, public administration and governance professional with over 40 years of experience in a variety of sectors. After service in the United States Army, he spent five years in private sector management.

After service from 2010-11 with USAID as the anti-corruption advisor for the Critical Priority Countries he rejoined USAID at the end of 2012 as a PFM Advisor.
