SESSION 1 – News updates
SESSION 2 – Spending reviews: towards good practic
SESSION 3 – Using performance information for management
The 3 breakout groups are invited to consider the following questions:
1. What does managerial performance budgeting mean in practice and what procedures or processes tend to be put in place to change the way budgets and programmes are managed?
2. What sort of information is collected/used in a managerial performance budgeting context that is different to the information that is needed for types of performance budgeting?
3. What does a managerial approach imply for the relationship between the Ministry of Finance and Line Ministries?
4. What are the prerequisites for such an approach to be successful, e.g. performance oriented HR, budgetary flexibility, clearly assigned responsibilities etc.?
5. Does this approach depend on a performance culture existing within government? How can that be established if it does not already exist?
6. Does there tend to be a lesser focus upon the linkages with budget allocations in this approach, and is that a help or a hindrance?
7. What are the main challenges and constraints that countries have faced in trying to implement such an approach successfully?
8. What impact is this approach having on programme management and performance? Is there evidence that this approach leads to improved performance, lower costs etc.?
9. How could key government stakeholders and oversight bodies, such as the supreme audit institution and parliament, further encourage or ensure the effectiveness of managerial performance budgeting?
10. Are there general lessons that can be drawn and is this a direction that more countries should follow?
