Budget Preparation and Execution

Budget preparation and execution learning program supports our constituency’s efforts in establishing sound public financial management (PFM) systems that foster flexible, efficient and output oriented management of public resources. The program promotes fiscal transparency and risks management, ensures well-functioning of medium-term budget frameworks and improves performance oriented budgetaring.

It addresses the innovative mechanisms and tools for budgeting aimed at promoting fiscal accountability, transparency and sustainability of all PFM actors. Find out more about learning events that we are offering in 2019:

CEF 2019 Budget Preparation and Execution Learning Program.

    The primary target audience of this learning program are officials from:

  • ministries of finance
  • line ministries
  • independent fiscal institutions
  • and parliaments

In the past year we scaled up reaching out to line ministries who aim to strengthen their financial management functions. We kicked-off of a three-year multi-beneficiary capacity development effort covering the EU candidate and potential candidate countries in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The purpose of the project is to strengthen analytical capacities needed for comprehensive assessment of fiscal implications of structural reforms, to promote greater fiscal policy coordination among relevant authorities especially between finance ministries and line ministries, as well as within the umbrella of individual line ministries, and to stimulate exchange of good practices across the region.We design our learning initiatives under this program closely with IMF Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD). We host two IMF FAD advisors and their support staff. Suzanne Flynn, PFM Advisor for South East Europe is involved in many initiatives of this program; IMF’s technical assistance missions in the SEE region strongly inform our program
