Update and Deepening of a Policy Note on Non-technical Drivers and Reform Opportunities in Nigeria’s PFM

Date: Jan – May 2015

Country: Nigeria

Client: Oxford Policy Management

Updated the policy note, including the quantitative data in light of the revision of the GDP, the passing of time since its drafting, the changed context for PFM due to falling oil prices and the deepening security challenges in the north of the country; and strengthened the granularity of the report with regards to stakeholder positions and interests, the bank’s past experience, and specific PFM reform aspects, in order to make it more operationally useful for the World Bank-funded PFM modernization project.
