Carefully prepared budgets and sound expenditure management help create a fiscal environment that provides needed public expenditures, creates macro stability and enables private-sector development. IDG assists ministries of finance to form realistic budgets and expenditure plans that align with policy priorities while accounting for macro constraints. We can provide assistance for: evidence-based budget processes, including performance-based budgeting, rolled out beyond ministries of finance, to implementing line ministries; and the hard and soft systems needed to support expenditure management (GFMIS, circulars, manuals, training, etc.).
