About this learning event

The key element of performance budgeting (PB) is a program structure that also includes a connection to the program manager. At this event, we will explore how the implementation of PB can be made more effective and efficient when managerial accountability is clearly defined. We will discuss how a central harmonization unit and a budget department of a ministry of finance can strengthen their cooperation and information exchange. We will address practical issues related to improving the efficiency of financial management control, measuring the results, reporting on program implementation, and accountability arrangements between ministries and their subordinated entities. Participants will also benefit from the exchange of knowledge acquired by countries that have advanced experiences in this field, as well as those that are in the initial stages of adopting PB.

Participants of this blended learning activity will participate in two highly-interactive and participatory webinars focused on key principles of performance budgeting and managerial accountability and its interconnections. Additionally, the workshop will equip participants with a thorough understanding of performance budgeting, enhance their managerial and analytical skills, and foster a collaborative environment for knowledge exchange and practical application.
