General problem/challenge addressed by the commitment: There exist low citizens' engagement and participation in the budget preparation, approval, implementation, and monitor¬ing and evaluation process. This results in citizens not having sufficient information and thus not being able to adequately relate with the projects in the budget and ultimately weakens accountability for resource allocations, and low level of trust and confidence in government.
Main Objective: To ensure that budget planning, approval, implementation, monitoring and reporting meet the needs of citizens and that citizens have open access to budget information in a format that is both human and machine readable and is available online and timely
Brief description of commitment: This commitment will ensure that citizens participate and make inputs into the budget process starting with the pre-bud-
get statement, and inclusion of community development charter (participatory budget and budgeting process) in the executive budget proposal, budget debate through public hearings in the legislature, implementation, monitoring and reporting of the budget, Budget information should also be made accessible to all and available on time.
Specific OGP challenge addressed by commitment: More robust citizens' participation in the planning and budget cycle will result in more effective management of public resources and improved public services and contribute to learning for improved budget performance,
Rationale for commitment: By making budget information available and accessible to all citizens in a timely manner and usable format, this commitment improves accountability on the part of Government, provides openness and transparency in the budget process and ensures that Citizens are engaged throughout the budget cycle thereby increasing trust in government, and governance process.
