Since May 1999 the IMF, jointly with the World Bank, undertakes the Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP). It aims to increase the effectiveness of efforts to promote the soundness of financial systems in member countries. Resilient, well-regulated financial systems are essential for macroeconomic and financial stability in a world of increased capital flows. ROSCs in banking and financial sector areas are usually carried out in the context of FSAP.

The FSAP also forms the basis of Financial System Stability Assessments (FSSAs), in which IMF staff address issues of relevance to IMF surveillance, including risks to macroeconomic stability stemming from the financial sector and the capacity of the sector to absorb macroeconomic shocks.

A FSAP team visited Moldova in April 2004 and in May 2004. Supported by experts from a range of national agencies and standard-setting bodies, work under the program seeks to identify the strengths and vulnerabilities of a country's financial system; to determine how key sources of risk are being managed; to ascertain the sector's developmental and technical assistance needs; and to help prioritize policy responses.

Another FSAP team visit was in October 2007, following which a FSSA Update was published.

In February and March 2014 a FSAP mission visited Moldova. The FSAP findings were discussed with the authorities during the Article IV consultation mission in April 2014.
