GLOBAL FORUM ON CLIMATE CHANGE FINANCE AND DEVELOPMENT EFFECTIVENESS GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE ALLIANCE (GCCA) BUDGET SUPPORT PROGRAMME IN MAURITIUS
Economic and Social Transformation Plan (ESTP) Strategic Plan Programme Based Budgeting (PBB) Treasury Accounting System (TAS) PBB, embedded in a 3-year Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks, is an integrated approach currently implemented in Mauritius to change the focus of the budgetary process from an input-based annual activity to a performance-based exercise Programme-Based Budgeting (PBB) seeks to improve expenditure efficiency and effectiveness lays the foundations for the modernization of public management by systematically linking funding to results, making use of performance information to achieve that linkage.
By developing and implementing PBB, the Government of Mauritius aims to achieve the following objectives: 1. To reform the framework governing public management in order to make it more results-oriented and geared to achieving development outcomes; 2. To promote high quality, client-responsive public services and to maximize value for money in service delivery; 3. To use performance and evaluation data for policy planning and management purposes, in particular for enhancing operational and technical efficiency, expenditure prioritization and improving allocation of resources;
4. To institutionalize gender equity throughout the process of aligning budgets to policy priorities and increasing the transparency and accountability of the system. 5. To improve effectiveness of government Ministries /Departments when developing and implementing their programmes and sub-programmes of activities; 6. To provide more concrete information to the Cabinet on performance for decision making purposes and for setting future targets and prioritie
Consequently measuring performance will: ensure transparency and accountability for the use of public funds; help Government make the correct budget decisions and contribute to service delivery improvement; assess progress towards achieving predetermined goals; identify problems and make corrections ; show our Weaknesses and successes ; and make institutional comparisons acros s Ministries/Departments, districts,, etc.
