The Federal Budget from the Author: Allen Schick. The federal budget impacts American policies both at home and abroad, and recent concern over the exploding budgetary deficit has experts calling our nation's policies "unsustainable" and "system-dooming." As the deficit continues to grow, will America be fully able to fund its priorities, such as an effective military and looking after its aging population? In this third edition of his classic book The Federal Budget, Allen Schick examines how surpluses projected during the final years of the Clinton presidency turned into oversized deficits under George W. Bush. In his detailed analysis of the politics and practices surrounding the federal budget, Schick addresses issues such as the collapse of the congressional budgetary process and the threat posed by the termination of discretionary spending caps. This edition updates and expands his assessment of the long-term budgetary outlook, and it concludes with a look at how the nation's deficit will affect America now and in the future. "A clear explanation of the federal budget... [Allen Schick] has captured the politics of federal budgeting from the original lofty goals to the stark realities of today."—Pete V. Domenici, U.S. Senate

Toward Next Generation Performance Budgeting from the Author: Donald Moynihan. Toward Next-Generation Performance Budgeting: Lessons from the Experiences of Seven Reforming Countries analyzes the difficulties that national governments have had in linking measurement of performance and results to the annual budget process. The book is based on intensive reviews of four advanced countries that were early reformers and three pioneers in Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to looking at their current systems, Toward Next-Generation Performance Budgeting looks at how their approaches have evolved over time. This book attempts to fill a gap between survey-based self-assessments and best-practice guides. It was compiled in response to the concerns of budget departments in countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, many of which are committed to adopting some form of performance-based budgeting and are seeking to learn from the experiences of previous reformers what the practical challenges are and how they can adapt best-practice approaches to a messy reality. The case studies demonstrate a general pattern of disappointment with the results of performance budgeting, balanced by a strong belief in the underlying logic, which has resulted in repeated efforts to modify approaches to tighten the links between budgeting and performance. These efforts have resulted in significant variation in how countries have implemented performance budgeting and in the benefits they have derived. These variations offer guidance for models of next-generation performance budgeting, avoiding classic pitfalls, and incorporating modifications introduced by those who have used it longest and found it useful.

Managing Budgeting In Government from the Author: Great Britain: National Audit Office. The Government's ability to show that its spending decisions represent the best value for money is being hindered by the patchy availability of good information. Many aspects of government budgeting compare well with good budgeting practice - particularly in support of the Treasury's objective to control spending. The system is less effective at addressing objectives for prioritisation of public spending and delivery of value for money across government. In 2012-13, the Government expects to spend £683 billion. The Treasury designs and manages the Government's budgetary system; departments manage their spending within the rules Treasury sets. Its spending review 2010 (SR10) and subsequent annual budgets have focused on reducing spending to tackle the fiscal deficit. The NAO estimates that SR10 cost departments and the Treasury around £20 million to administer. There were improvements in the last spending review to how spending on capital projects was allocated. However, the approach to prioritising resource spending, which represents nearly 90 per cent of all controllable spending, was less structured. There are promising budgeting developments in some departments, including innovative methods of internal challenge, improved aspects of external challenge and strengthened links between performance and spending. The Treasury's main contact with departments is through spending teams which make valuable contributions to spending control. However, their ability to challenge proposals is hampered by limited information and high staff turnover - with only eight out of 52 staff members still in place 20 months after SR10.
