Sustainable budgeting and financial management in Ireland

The Irish performance budgeting framework needs improvements to be used for sustainable budgeting and reporting. The Commission is supporting the development and roll-out of a new outcomes-based budgeting framework, measuring the performance of public policies against both sectoral objectives and cross-cutting priorities like climate or equality. The project will aim to improve resource prioritisation, the evaluation of public policies and the accountability of public managers.
