Peer benchmarking payment systems department capacity in Africa

FSDA appointed BFA to create a pilot profile of the current and planned capacity of five National Payments System Departments (NPSDs, or their equivalents) at African central banks that will enable them to peer benchmark their own structure and capacity; and to plan better how to grow that capacity over time. This exercise will enable an understanding of possible gaps in knowledge and skills with regard to payments, potential for capacity building as well as possible requirements with respect to staff capability in key areas and potential structures.
