The BCOP Program and Performance Budgeting Working Group (PBBWG) continues its cooperation with the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD). Within this cooperation, PPBWG will for the fourth time participate in the meeting of the OECD’s Senior Budget Officials’ Network on Performance and Results.
OECD’s Network on Performance and Results meets annually and its objective is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of resource allocation and management in the public sector by assisting member countries to design and implement performance- and results-based budgeting and management reforms. This Network provides an important platform for PEMPAL Budget Community of Practice’s (BCOP) Working Group on Program and Performance Budgeting, providing PEMPAL countries with an opportunity to share and benchmark their progress in program and performance budgeting with OECD countries and to learn and discuss new trends in program and performance budgeting in OECD countries.
This year, a small delegation of PPBWG, including the Working Group Lead, Mr. Nikolay Begchin from the Ministry of Finance of Russian Federation will attend the meeting and contribute to its agenda with a presentation of preliminary results of the PEMPAL countries on the OECD’s 2018 Performance Budgeting Survey. This year, the PPBWG is facilitating the participation of the PEMPAL countries in this Survey for the second time, after the 2016 Survey edition.
