Budgeting for Results-Monitoring for Results software implementation in Guyana

The Ministry of Finance of Guyana signed a contract in March 2017 with IDEA (IDEA International for technical support and IDEA-Solutions for software design and implementation) for a consultancy to strengthen the linkages between results-based planning, budgeting, and monitoring processes in a pilot ministry, i.e., the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). The project is funded by the Inter-American Development Bank. The overall objective is to have a more evidence-based budget discussion based on alternative budget-results scenarios and to move beyond a yearly horizon to also consider medium term strategic priorities. The project entails the revision of the programme architecture, programme logic models, indicators and targets, the estimation of unit costs, along with the adjustment of two generic software developed by IDEA-Solutions, Budgeting for Results (B4R®) and Monitoring for Results (M4R®) to the specific context of Guyana. Those software support the stepwise processes of budgeting, and monitoring for results respectively in a user-friendly way.

Training on the Operation of the LoLF, Niger

As part of the project to support the operationalization of the LOLF and the Budget Program in Niger, IDEA International has organized, over the last three months, sessions to sensitize decision-makers and key managers of ministries and public institutions. A train-the-trainer session involving 20 DGB and 3 Ministry of Planning staff was initially organized on the basis of the PPBSE chain, the Program Budget and the development of the DPPD. IDEA also organized a series of applied training courses on the development of DPPDs, which enabled the capacity building of 190 executives from 37 ministries and the Accounting Court. In addition, the authorities of the Ministry of Finance, Sectoral Ministries and the Court of Auditors participated in an awareness-raising and reporting session on the work on the development of DPPDs and on the role of decision-makers in the process of validating these documents. Finally, a government seminar involving the Prime Minister and all Members of the Government, as well as an awareness-raising workshop for all Members, were held on the themes of public finance reform, the harmonized framework of finance and budget reform.

The San José Municipality in Costa Rica is prepared to give a Results-Based Approach to its 2017-2020 Municipal Development Plan

On February 27, 2017, IDEA International began the Consultancy for the formulation of the "Municipal Development Plan 2017-2020” and the elaboration of the Results-Based Multiannual Budget in the city of San José, Costa Rica. This project, financed by the Inter-American Development Bank, aims to accompany the process of formulating the PDM of San José 2017-2020 under a Results-Based Management approach, in order to generate technical capacity within the Municipality and formulate, through a learning by doing process, a proposal to orient the PDM towards results, develop guidelines for the elaboration of a multi-year budget and a methodology for the monitoring and evaluation of the same.
In this first mission in San José, Mr. Juan Abreu, representing IDEA International, spoke with key stakeholders of this consultancy, including the Mayor of the Municipality of San José, Johnny Araya, as well as IDB representative Gilberto Chona and the technical coordinator of the project Ligia Quezada to present and approve the work plan and lead an informational meeting with the representatives of the municipality involved in the process.
