To ensure evidence-based policy formulation embedded in budget decisions, the government will fully introduce program budgeting by 2014. In parallel to budget formulation improvements, the new systems will improve reporting and accountability on the use of public funds through transparent reporting on sector/ministry performance (rather than on finances only). These reforms will also contribute to improvements in internal and external auditing systems.
