The Government of Nepal (GoN) completed this self-assessment with the technical assistance of the World Bank. The Nepal Public Financial Management Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) financed the assessment. In addition to this main Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) Assessment, the supplementary Gender-Responsive Public Financial Management (GRPFM) and Climate-Responsive Public Financial Management (CRPFM) Assessments have been carried out for the first time as self-assessments. The PEFA oversight team, chaired by the Finance Secretary, provided policy guidance to conduct and complete this assessment. The PEFA Secretariat (Nepal) led and coordinated the assessment, including data collection and report writing. Eleven working teams (including nine teams for the main PEFA and one each for the GRPFM and CRPFM, each headed by an official of the rank of Joint Secretary), were formed to collect data and prepare preliminary drafts of indicator-level assessments. The PEFA Secretariat (Nepal) consolidated the inputs of the working teams and prepared the final report.
