Using Performance Information in Government Budgeting and Reporting Review of Best Practices

Currently, many governments use a wide range of approaches to translate qualitative information into budget priorities. These approaches, while always subject to change due to political imperatives, may include qualitative methods based on criteria, or quantitative approaches based on the articulation of performance indicators, expected outcomes and efforts required to meet those outcomes. The objective of this review is to learn how other governments from around the world are using performance-based information to inform decision-making on annual departmental priorities and budget estimates.
