It is a general belief that many public sector organizations have been unable to achieve the goals for which they were established. Huge public resources have been spent without adding value to the nation’s development process. Against this background and particularly in the light of current reforms and the transformation agenda of the federal government, there is intense pressure on public enterprise managers to effect the much needed change and become more prudent in the management of public funds. Managers of public sector finance are required to develop the competence to advise their organizations on financial plans, prepare budgets and manage their funds effectively to achieve set goals.
