PwC and consultant SHASAT to offer joint IPSAS courses

PwC has entered into an agreement with UK based global consulting, valuation and training organisation SHASAT to offer International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) training workshops in three continents.

The collaboration will provide IPSAS courses to public sector professionals in London, Brussels, the Hague, Geneva, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Miami.

PwC chair of IPSAS technical working group Patrice Schumesch said: "PwC supports the development of IPSAS with the aim to promote transparency, democratic accountability and enhance good governance and public financial management by public sector entities around the world."

According to PwC, the five-days workshops are tailored to instruct attendees to understand and apply IPSAS principles, concepts and knowledge; to embed the standards within their organisation and assess their impact; and to produce and interpret financial statements and information on cash and accrual basis.
