Public Expenditure Programming and Management Workshop
By: Centre for Management Development (CMD)
Lagos State, Nigeria
Oct 13 - 17 Oct, 2014
One of the major concerns of the Nigerian government has been how best to streamline public expenditure and improve its allocation under a condition of tight resource constraint and uncertainty. Often times, some mismatch exists between government revenue and expenditure. This has led to the introduction of series of widespread policy and institutional reforms in planning, budgeting, implementation and monitoring of government expenditure over the years. There are deficiencies in public expenditure management in Nigeria, and this is why government introduced a wide range of reforms. Some of these reforms aim at restructuring the public sector with a view to promoting efficiency in the use of public resources, reducing the size of the public sector, and encouraging private sector initiatives. Although there are signs of improvement, the country is still facing difficulties in the programming and management of public expenditure. The difficulty to timely adjust expenditure levels to changes in resource profiles of government remains a serious problem in the management of the economy. This workshop is, therefore, designed to expose participants to the framework for public expenditure programming and management in Nigeria to enhance the management of public funds.
