Integration of the Budget Classification and Chart of Accounts: Good practice among TCOP member countries

This paper first examines good practice elements of CoA design, including the importance of comprehensiveness in the design if major reports for all key stakeholders are to be derived from the CoA. The paper then moves to focus exclusively on the economic segment, identifying specific examples of good practice design evident in PEMPAL countries, and ways to integrate cash based budget reporting with accrual based financial reporting.
