Budget Expenditure Priorities- COB and OAG
Date: 29th – 30th June 2022
As financial resources of projects become constrained as a result of multiple demands by the various project objectives, the need for critical budget preparations and compilation has become very important. Budgets are prepared for many different purposes and the period of future forecasting varies, but most projects budget are prepared annually with the input from the various project activity areas to estimate their proposed expenditure for the period and for the appropriate subvention and allocation of funds earmarked for the projects.
A full understanding of the budget planning and preparation process is crucial not only to derive expenditure projections and pivotal priority areas but also to advice policy makers on feasibility of specific budgetary proposals from a macro or micro economic approach. This also creates and emphasis on the importance of controlling government expenditure at the upstream budget preparation level other than the implementation and execution level.
Those preparing the budget need to prepare and analyze options. Budget execution has traditionally been seen as ensuring that spending is carried out according to the budget approved by the parliament. Budget expenditure priorities have a major influence on formulation of public policies. This reflects a decision on the extent of the government’s commitment in provision of a broad range of public services, amenities and also foster economic growth. Majority of the expenditure items in our case rely heavily on taxes and public debt for financing hence this influences the overall long term tax regimes.
