IPSAS (International Public Sector Accounting Standards) provides a sounds basis for public entities to demonstrate sound accrual accounting and budgeting techniques. With its emphasis on performance-based management as a core competency, it requires entities to adopt a fresh and innovative approach to developing new skill sets.
