Welcome to Institute of Public Finance Bangladesh

The Institute of Public Finance (IPF) stands as a specialized institute committed to enhancing knowledge and skills in the field of Public Financial Management (PFM). As part of our mission, we aim to develop capacities and competencies among staff from the Ministry of Finance and all other Ministries and Divisions of the Government of Bangladesh through training and research on Public Financial Management (PFM).

Two decades of PFM reforms and subsequent changes have generated an enormous demand for government officials equipped with specialized knowledge and skills in PFM. However, there exists a clear gap between the demand and supply of PFM-trained officials, which can potentially impact the implementation of government plans and the sustainability of ongoing PFM reforms. In this particular context, the Institute of Public Finance Bangladesh (IPF) was established in the year 2013, with the noble purpose of imparting knowledge through training and conducting meticulous research endeavors, under the auspices of the Finance Division.
