Experiences in Utilising Performance Information in Budget and Management Processes
The meeting covered the following topics:
A report will be published by the OECD based on the country case studies and the summary of country experiences with performance systems supplied for the next SBO meeting in Sydney, 5-6 June 2006. The discussions at both meetings will also be incorporated into the report.
This meeting will examine individual countries experiences of using performance information in budgeting and management processes. Each country will give a presentation that will discuss: their use of performance information in their budgeting and management processes; the impact of performance information on budgetary, managerial, and political decision making, and on improving performance; the key challenges encountered; and the solutions adopted. In sum, countries such present what has worked; what has not worked with their approach and what they see are the outstanding issues.
Each session at the meeting will consist of one country presentation (15-20 minutes), followed by a short (5-10 minutes) commentary on the presentation. The floor will then be open for discussion by all participants.
