NGO makes case for viable budgeting process

By David Agba

It is imperative to revive best practices and the inclusive system of preparing Medium Term Sector Strategies (MTSS) which will feed into the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), while budgeting.

This was part of the recommendations of the report titled: ‘Many Miles to go’ 2013 Federal Capital Budget’ put together by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) in Abuja.

According to the report, stakeholders including MDA personnel, representatives of legislative oversight committees, organized private sector, academia and civil society groups should be involved in the preparation of the MTSS, including the prioritisation of projects  based on high level policy documents.

“MTEFS prepared by the executive for approval by NASS should come with indicative sectoral envelopes to enable NASS properly consider the priorities and arrive at a decision. Each MDA should maintain and update on a yearly basis a register of ongoing projects. This will give a quick dash board view of ongoing projects, their cost, implementation schedule, purpose and benefits”.
