On the way to a performance budget in local administrations and in the Flemish civil service

Dutch speaking chamber on February 26, 2019

The Court of Audit examined the introduction of a performance budget in local administrations and in the Flemish civil service. It noted that local administrations have a great deal of freedom in their practical interpretation of the rules relating to the policy and management cycle (in Dutch: beleids- en beheerscyclus or BBC), with consequences on the monitoring and supervision of appropriations by the local and provincial councils. Adjustments are planned from 2020 onwards. In the Flemish civil service, the concept of performance budget has only taken off during the current legislature.
