Government Units Applying ‘Programmes and Performance Budget’ Hold Annual Meet

Muscat: The Ministry of Finance today organized the annual meeting of teams tasked with implementing the “Programmes and Performance Budget” (“PP Budget”) in government units.

The meeting was attended by representatives of more than 60 units of the State’s Administrative Apparatus.

The meeting reviewed the progress made in implementing the PP Budget at government units in 2023, as well as the Ministry’s follow-up plan of the budget programme in terms of requirements in 2024.

The meeting also touched on improvements that could be introduced to the PP Budget’s draft document for the year 2025.

During the meeting, the Governorate of A’Dakhiliyah shared its experience in applying the PP Budget. The Governorate also gave a presentation on an indicator set for applying the PP Budget within the context of Ejada, the institutional system overseen by the Ministry of Labour.

Abdullah Salim Al Harthy, Undersecretary of the Finance Ministry, underscored the significance of the annual gathering. He lauded ongoing cooperation between the Ministry of Finance and other government units in finalizing the requirements needed for applying the PP Budget.

He pointed out that 45 government units have so far submitted the related budget’s documents.

For his part, Dr. Talib bin Ali Al Siyabi, Director of the “Programmes and Performance Budget Implementation” Project, told that the meeting stemmed from a keenness to improve the performance of government units and further streamline the objectives of Oman Vision 2040 and other strategic goals.

The drive also seeks to link all units with the “Detailed Performance Document”, so that overall performance could be measured and connected with general spending, Al Siyabi explained.

He added that 77 percent of the PP Budget project’s plan was accomplished. This, he observed, constitutes a step forward in developing the performance of public finance. – ONA
