Budget Analysis of Administrative Institutions and Sector Policies in the Social Area, Health, and Education
The report aims to make a budget analysis of social policies. The results of the analysis will inform the reader on public spending efficiency in administrative public institutions within the social sector and accurate understanding of the social budget policy priorities in relation to the main beneficiary groups.
The social sector includes the social area, health, and education. Budget analysis involves two aspects: 1) analysis of administrative budgets of central public sector institutions, and 2) analysis of budget policies regarding the main funding mechanisms and main beneficiary groups of social policies.
The report is divided into several chapters. The first chapter analyzes the general structure of budgets in each area. The second chapter analyzes the administrative budgets of central executive institutions in the areas concerned. The third chapter analyzes the main budget mechanisms and priorities for budget expenditures in the areas concerned. The report contains cross-sector comparisons.
The conclusions of the report are grouped into 3 categories: conclusions
on the efficiency of the use of administrative budgets, conclusions on the
identification of priorities in the allocation of budget funds, and conclusions
on the effectiveness of the use of budget funds. The report recommends making
efficient use of budget expenditures for administrative needs by enhancing
performance within subordinated agencies responsible for policy management.
Nowadays the outdated technologies used for the administration of policies
reveal high cost and artificial maintenance of a large number of public employees
in the subordinated institutions. Another recommendation that results from the
analysis of administrative budgets is the mandatory use of procedures for
public procurements of services and goods. This category accounts for about 30%
of all funds spent. The report contains well-defined findings regarding budget
priorities for different beneficiary groups. The amounts paid with money or
services are identified.
The report contains a detailed chapter with conclusions and recommendations for each area analyzed. The quality of educational, social, and health services remains one of the main challenges of the sector.
