Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Over the past years, Morocco has made great efforts to promote budget transparency, especially with the enactment of the new Organic Law related to the Finance Bill, thus improving, in particular, its Open Budget index, and scoring 45/100 during the last survey conducted in 2017. Nevertheless, work still needs to be done, including the production and publication of three reports that Morocco has yet to produce, according to the last open budget survey, on the one hand, and the enrichment of contents of reports that Morocco does publish with a greater involvement of civil society, on the other
What is the commitment?
Application of IBP standards on budget reports and their publication timeframes Involvement of civil society in the production of the Citizen Budget
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
By working on the production and publication of the eight reports required by the IBP (including the Citizen Budget) according to the predefined criteria, the Ministry of Economy and Finance will: Improve the quality and pertinence of information provided to the public and, consequently, create greater budget transparency Involve civil society in drafting a better-targeted citizen budget that responds more to citizen expectations in terms of information
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The publication and production of the eight budget documents according to international standards will: Provide the public with access to more exhaustive, higher quality information
Enable civil society to interact better with the content of the Citizen Budget, and to work with the ministry on the constant improvement of this document to meet citizens’ expectations.
