BUDGET SUPPORT PROGRAMME
IN MAURITIUS
Economic and Social Transformation Plan (ESTP)
 Strategic Plan
 Programme Based Budgeting (PBB)
 Treasury Accounting System (TAS)
PBB, embedded in a 3-year Medium Term Expenditure
Frameworks, is an integrated approach currently implemented
in Mauritius to change the focus of the budgetary process from
an input-based annual activity to a performance-based exercise
Programme-Based Budgeting (PBB)
 seeks to improve expenditure efficiency and effectiveness
 lays the foundations for the modernization of public
management
 by systematically linking funding to results,
 making use of performance information to achieve that
linkage.

By developing and implementing PBB, the Government of
Mauritius aims to achieve the following objectives:
1. To reform the framework governing public
management in order to make it more results-oriented and
geared to achieving development outcomes;
2. To promote high quality, client-responsive public
services and to maximize value for money in service
delivery;
3. To use performance and evaluation data for policy
planning and management purposes, in particular for
enhancing operational and technical efficiency,
expenditure prioritization and improving allocation of
resources;
4. To institutionalize gender equity throughout the
process of aligning budgets to policy priorities and
increasing the transparency and accountability of the
system.
5. To improve effectiveness of government
Ministries /Departments when developing and
implementing their programmes and sub-programmes
of activities;
6. To provide more concrete information to the
Cabinet on performance for decision making
purposes and for setting future targets and prioritie
Consequently measuring performance will:
• ensure transparency and accountability for the use
of public funds;
• help Government make the correct budget decisions
and contribute to service delivery improvement;
• assess progress towards achieving predetermined
goals;
• identify problems and make corrections;
• show our Weaknesses and successes; and
• make institutional comparisons across
Ministries/Departments, districts, , etc.
Therefore in line with the spirit of Good
Governance, embedded in our Programme Based
Budgeting, Mauritius is ensuring a proper
monitoring of all funds received from
Development Partners
All money received are captured under a
programme in Ministries/Department
concerned
