About the International Performance Budgeting Database

Welcome to the OECD International Database on Performance Budgeting (2016 OECD Performance Budgeting Survey results). The database provides users with a unique resource on performance budgeting, spending review, and evaluation in OECD countries. The database maps out key stakeholders involved in generating and using performance information in budget negotiations and describes some of the main challenges faced (e.g. poor quality data, unintended consequences or impact on performance measurement and management, etc.).

The information held in the database is made available free of charge. However, the data are protected by copyright and we request that you cite the OECD as the source (OECD International Database of Performance Budgeting). Furthermore, to help us track the impact, we would appreciate receiving electronic copies of any papers that cite the database, to be sent to Bonifacio Agapin (Publications Coordinator).

About its questionnaire

The 2016 survey was conducted by the Budgeting and Public Expenditures Division of the OECD and preliminary results were presented at the 12th annual meeting of the Working Party of Senior Budget Officials Network on Performance and Results. The OECD has conducted extensive quality control of the responses in order to ensure consistency and reliability.
