The Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), 1999 is an important piece of public sector legislation that promotes good financial management so as to maximise service delivery through the use of limited resources in an effective and efficient manner.

This webinar covers an introduction to the PFMA and Treasury Regulations that guide how finances must be handled in the public sector.
