KARACHI -- A report titled 'Sources and Uses of Funds by Non-Financial Private Corporate Sector in Pakistan' for year 2015-16 has been released by State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).
SBP's report has been bifurcated into structure of sources and uses of funds by corporate sector and saving investment gap and channels of financing it.
The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) was asked to determine whether there (1) were any potentially improper or questionable sources and uses of funds
by the Academy, including transactions with its affiliated organizations; (2) was an effective control environment with key controls in place over the Academy's sources and uses of funds
; and (3) were any actions taken, under way, or planned to improve controls and accountability.
To spark ideas about how schools and school districts might use American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds, particularly under the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF), Title I, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part B, the Department has released a new resource: "Using ARRA Funds to Drive School Reform and Improvement." This document includes framing questions for decision-making and examples of potential uses of funds
to improve educational outcomes from early learning through high school.
These projects have included: a study commissioned to determine the impact of potential economic, environmental, community, and health impacts of a depressed section of the community, a study commissioned by the Bridgeport Public Education Fund on sources and uses of funds
and best practices in its mini-grants program for elementary, middle and high school teachers, and a consulting project commissioned by the Bridgeport Port Authority for a proposed parking garage, new property leases, and revised fare structures.
This report provides four recommendations for improving the Governor's school funding plan: (1) Drive funds to schools based on student numbers and needs through weighted student funding; (2) Encourage experimentation with the uses of funds
and imaginative new instructional programs; (3) Hold all schools and school districts accountable for student performance and continuous improvement; and (4) Gather and use data on the uses of funds
and the results produced, so that alternative methods of delivering instruction can be compared on cost and effectiveness.
