July 2019 will mark the 30th anniversary of New Zealand’s highly regarded Public Finance Act 1989.

The Act represented a landmark in that it both established pioneering reforms of financial management at the whole of government level and redefined how individual government departments function and are held accountable. However, significant as that legislation was, it has not remained cast in stone; rather it has continued to evolve to meet the changing context of public financial management.

PFA30 will be hosted by the School of Accounting and Commercial Law at Victoria University of Wellington and supported by the New Zealand Treasury, the Controller and Auditor-General of New Zealand, and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and CPA Australia.

The conference programme can be found online.

Conference Fee: $600 + GST
