Managing complexity: from fragmentation to coordination
Budgeting involves the combination of multiple information sources, different perspectives and diverse interest groups, which all influence complex decisions. As government service delivery and financing modalities grow more complex, the demands on budget management tools and processes have increased under less favorable human resources environment and greater policy and financing uncertainty. The seminar provided a platform to investigate the institutional and technical mechanisms to manage the inherently complex and fragmented nature of budgeting.
The seminar covered:
- Achieving coordination through the classification system
- Managing aid flows
- Decentralising public functions to public entities
- Policy budgeting and oversight: the role of the legislature
- Economic reforms in Angola
