What is the public interest issue to be addressed by this commitment? A large number of actors intervene in the preparation of the state budget through several mechanisms, including the budget orientation debate, budget and ministerial conferences. However, citizens are not directly involved in the budget process, and are informed of the budget choices made at the end of the budget cycle. This situation does not help promote more active participation by citizens in the budget process and ownership of public policies by citizens.

What is the commitment? Invite civil society each year to the plenary session of the DPBEP pre-validation seminar, which defines the government's budgetary guidelines, before its presentation to the National Assembly and to the SENATE, from the year 2021.

How will commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Collaboration with civil society aims to inform the population and collect their observations and proposals regarding the budgetary choices that the government is considering. It will enable citizens to better understand and apprehend the priorities of the State for the coming year and to possibly see that their concerns are taken into account in the draft budget.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This commitment encourages improving budget transparency and citizen participation in the budget process.
