STRENGTHENING INSTITUTIONS TO IMPROVE PUBLIC EXPENDITURE ACCOUNTABILITY
(2008-2013)
Analysis that Aims to Improve Evidence-Based Resource Allocation
 
Research Papers

The analyses of public expenditure involved a four-step framework through which the research teams analyzed the sectoral policy priorities of the governments, their impact on communities, households and individuals and prescribed feasible policy options to policymakers:

STEP 1 – PROGRAM BUDGETING ANALYSIS indicates the policy stance of a planner in terms of resource allocation across different programs, and line-items within a program, and provides a benchmark to help track future allocations. 

STEP 2 – BENEFIT INCIDENCE analyzes the distribution of public expenditure across different demographic and socio-economic groups in a society. It gives an indication of the accrual of benefits from government programs by allocating per unit public expenditure/subsidies according to individual utilization rates of public services.

STEP 3 – COST-EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS is essentially a cost-benefit analysis where the benefits from an investment project or policy option are expressed in non-monetary terms (e.g. lives saved). It helps a policymaker choose the most feasible and attractive policy option by comparing the costs of a project with its purported benefits.

STEP 4 – POLICY SIMULATIONS is an exercise which helps in building alternative scenarios of future benefits and costs for a policy change based on existing data on all relevant parameters influencing outcomes in the domain in which the change is envisaged.
