Budget Analysis for Ministries of (i) Food; (ii) Environment; and (iii) Labor and Manpower
Short summary of Project
DAI developed a toolkit to analyze federal budgets according to (i) demand; (ii) functional; and (iii) policy classifications. This software compares the allocations as per these classifications for the last five years giving the law makers a visual representation about the rise or fall of budgetary allocation. Our staff members were given the software and we adopted this software for three federal ministries i.e. Ministry of Food Agriculture and Livestock, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Labor and Manpower. With the software it was possible if the total allocation for the ministry in the federal budget has gone up or down, what is the breakdown of current and development budget, what are the provincial budgets as compared to the federal allocations, how is the total budget broken down by object classifications, how is the total budget broken down by function classification, how is the budget broken down by demand and also by policy allocation over the past five years.
