PAOs Engaging with the Public Sector – Case Study 2: Malaysia

Published date: October 16, 2020

The CAPA Public Sector Financial Management Committee (PSFMC) developed a publication titled ‘PAOs – Engaging with the Public Sector’ with an aim to identify the current extent and nature of the accountancy profession’s engagement with the public sector, and to encourage professional accountancy organisations (PAOs) to consider increasing their level of engagement. A series of case studies was later proposed as a follow-up to the publication to provide examples of how PAOs around the world have successfully ‘engaged with the public sector’ and the benefits derived from the engagement.

This case study from Malaysia demonstrates how the PAO engaged with the Malaysian government to assist in introducing accrual accounting into the public sector and to strengthen the accounting cohort working in the public sector.
