Assessment Approach: Expenditure Management Cycle.

3 Approaches to assessing performance Data on system or organizational component performance - outcomes Reference to PEM principles, 3-level framework Functionality - HIPC expenditure tracking Good practice institutional features - framework

4 System or Component Performance System – budget volatility – budget deviation Elements – Treasury -Cash management -arrears, level and trend -late payment penalties -overdraft facility use -Accounting -Record error rates -Reporting -Timeliness, frequency of in-year reporting -Timeliness of year-end reporting -Debt management -Frequency of missed or late payments; arrears

5 System or Element Performance Internal control – percentage of erroneous payments – recovery rate for overpayments – employment records exist; error rates in records, payroll Internal Audit – audit coverage (% total spending), audit cycle (years) – number material weaknesses found annually, number outstanding – remediation (correction) rates External audit – same as for internal audit, above
