Example text

That is why UNCDF focuses first on LG. Yet the institutional context and mapping (Part 1 of this text) highlights the dependence of sound local government on its national partnerships, whether in policy or funding. The public expenditure management (PEM) system is therefore crucial to LG. Its planning and reporting requirements (Figure 1 above) cannot work without the information system to support it. What PB must do and be proved to do it, is to yield infrastructure and services that are more economically, efficiently and effectively delivered.

2 PB is conceptually redundant without a strategic context to condition the resource allocating process. 3 The strategic context for PB is being satisfied increasingly through public annual reporting in terms of outcomes (wider societal impact) and outputs (organizationally specific, directly attributable achievements). 4 PB assumes that the real test is of resource allocation against future intentions (plan), tempered by recent performance (review). 5 PB requires all priorities to be in ranked sequence so that difficult choices are impossible to avoid.

The effectiveness of impact is measured by occupation or use of the facility and “has the original problem been solved”. If the asset is fully used then 100%; if the original problem has been solved then 100%. 9 Table 5 presents a different working example. This review is at the annual cycle level. Every third year, a strategic review should take place. This will be the basis for assessing performance at the objectives level; the rate of progress in moving from X% to Y%. That strategic review, as well as the third ‘annual’ review, will become the foundation for the next 3-year strategic framework.
