Institute Alternative is the only participant of public discussion on the Public Finance Management Programme for the period of 2016-2020, which is organized by the Ministry of Finance.
We have delivered comments for this document that define the key reform plans in different areas related to the management of public finance – from the budget planning to its execution, further development of the programme budget, capital budget, public procurement, transparency, etc. The programme relates to the new Strategy of public management reform, the draft of which is being publicly discussed and which integrally overtakes its part related to public finances.
Our eight proposals relate to the transparency of the budget, the accessibility of the budget data (the overall transparency of the capital cycle) as well as the strengthening of the State Audit Institution (SAI) capacity and strengthening the monitoring mechanisms of the compliance with the recommendations of the SAI.
In the following period, IA will monitor the implementation of the activities foreseen with this plan, through research and verification of allegations from official reports on implementation, as well as through analysis of the influence of the implementation of these measures on the consolidation of the public finance.
