Title: Budget Monitoring and Oversight System in Myanmar
Date of publication: 09 March 2018
Description/subject: "This paper discusses how budget monitoring and oversight are currently practiced in Myanmar. We hope the insights provided in this report would be useful to inform government, civil society organizations, and development partners will help inform the ongoing public discourse and interventions aimed at improving public financial management in Myanmar. There is a critical need in Myanmar to review budget expenditure and reassess its alignment with national priorities, as well as the efficacy of existing policies and procedures that support the budget oversight and monitoring process.
