In 2012, the ADB Board granted approval of the Decentralized Public Service and Financial Management (DPSFM) Sector Development Program, including a project loan for $13.5 million and a $24 million policy-based loan for subprogram 1 of the programmatic approach. The DPSFM aims to assist improved access to and coverage of basic public services. This will be achieved through an efficient system of intergovernmental fiscal relations.
The DPSFM is structured along a series of policy actions in seven major reform areas:
a. Development and regular update of a gender-sensitive policy and regulatory framework for decentralization.
b. Establishment of institutions for efficient coordination of sub-national democratic development policies.
c. Definition of clear service delivery responsibilities of Sub-national Administrations (SNAs).
d. Assignment of efficient tax and non-tax revenue sources to SNAs.
