The DeMPA is a methodology for assessing public debt management performance through a comprehensive set of indicators spanning the full range of government debt management functions. It was initially developed by the WB in cooperation with its international partners during 2007-2008.

The objective of the 2015 update of DeMPA methodology is to revise the evaluation criteria in line with the changing global environment, enhanced international practices for government debt management and requirements of the client countries, as well as to take into account lessons learned during the 5 years of DMF implementation.

The revised methodology combines the original DeMPA Tool and Guide into one unified methodological framework. Substantial revisions and additions are made in order to address the issues that arose during the earlier assessments.

A revised DeMPA tool (2015) comprises of five core areas, 14 DPIs and 33 dimensions, which are applied to evaluate the capacity of the sovereign borrower to manage the government debt portfolio.

This methodology is applied, starting July 2015.
