What is meant by performance-based budgeting?
The citizens of the country fundamentally have a contract with the government. They pay money to the government in returning for providing good and services required.
Since the government is the custodian of public money, it must utilize the funds judiciously and be able to account for it.
The government must have the confidence of the people that they will get the necessary return for the money they have paid and there is no pilferage or waste. Only then the government will be able to mobilize the desired level of revenue.
A performance-based budget reflects both the funds received from taxpayers as input and the services provided by federal, state, or local governments as output for each unit of an organization.
How do you do performance-based budgeting?
A set of targets are fixed and a performance budget is developed accordingly to identify those targeted numbers and a method of evaluating performance. Performance budgets quantify factors that are otherwise qualitative so that they can be measured and accounted for.
