Detailed description of project Back

The Government of Burkina Faso adopted in 2002 an ‘Action Planfor Strengthening Budget Management (PRGB). This action plan serves as a framework for the priority reforms in budget management within the administration and has as global objective to improve in a sustainable way the transparency, reliability and efficacy of the management of budgetary expenses.

More and more external support to Burkina Faso’s development strategy is in the shape of budgetary support. This requires new public investment strategies. Development projects that were implemented in a diversified and sometimes fragmented way, are now progressively integrated within the overall national budget.

As a consequence there is a need to set up tools for the planning of public investments so they correspond to the national priorities but also to the principles of the planning and identification of those investments.

The objective of this assignment is to support the Ministry of Finance and Budgeting to set up a procedural manual for determining and defining the public investments to be included in the Finance Law.
