Understanding and Analysing the Government's Budget 

Accra, Ghana March 28 2013 - Idilmat is pleased to announce the next session of its three-day professional development workshop - "Understanding and Analysing the Government's Budget".  This course aims at providing participants with an understanding of the central government budget and provides a framework to analyse it.  

The central government´s budget is placed within the fuller public sector framework
to permit a basis for examining the degree of comprehensiveness achieved and the opportunities presented for obscuring the application of government funds through extra-budgetary arrangements.  

This training is designed for:

  • NGOs
  • Non Budget Officers
  • Development Advisors 

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Understand the budget formulation, implementation and reporting cycle and identify opportunities for meaningful civil society engagement as well as opportunities for corruption and abuse;
  • Be equipped with some basic methods for analysing budget documentation
  • Be able to assess the credibility of the budget
  • Be able to identify threats to debt sustainability
  • Understand the basic elements of Budget Formulation; Budget Classification; Budget Preparation; Budget Execution, Financial Management and Reporting; External Audit and Parliamentary Oversight.
