OECD Review of the Belgian Federal Planning Bureau
An Assessment of Institutional, Operational and Analytical Capacity
This Review assesses the Federal Planning Bureau (FPB) and its institutional, operational
and analytical performance as an independent fiscal institution. The FPB’s responsibilities
have been growing and this Review provides insights into how effectively the institution
continues to serve the needs of its stakeholders. As part of this, it looks at the
Bureau’s performance related to its new mandate to undertake election budgetary costings
and impact assessment, carried out for the first time in relation to the 2019 election.
