09/23/2019 - 09/27/2019 at Pretoria, South Africa
An open, accessible and responsive budget is one of the most important enablers for achieving the ultimate outcomes of public financial management (PFM), namely aggregate fiscal discipline, strategic allocation of resources, and efficient service delivery. At the same time, the credibility of the budget is highly dependent on the strength of the PFM system as whole. Orderly and inclusive budget preparation including openness in forecasting macro-fiscal trends, revenue and expenditure estimates, as well as disclosing budget execution information regularly and in meaningful formats reflects a robust PFM system.
