The NSW Treasury says:
“Outcome Budgeting puts the needs of the people at the centre of investment decision-making across the sector. It is an approach to decision making that recognises that the allocation of public resources should be based on the outcomes achieved for people, not the amount spent.”
This course will explore how government budgeting has developed from purely a cost control tool to one that can be used to disclose the full range of public services provided by a government and how well each is delivered against its expected outcomes. It will demonstrate how whole-of-government and individual agency strategic plans should inform budget policy priorities and resource allocations.
The course will show how to develop key performance indicators to gauge the effectiveness and efficiency of both budget outputs (agency activities) and public outcomes (service results). In doing so, it will explain how to use an “outcomes hierarchy” methodology to translate an agency’s budget program goal into specific activity outputs, intermediate results, desired final outcomes and relevant performance indicators and targets. Finally, it will illustrate how to use a “One Page Management” system to make reporting against performance targets for activity spending, output and outcomes easy to monitor at each level of management (unit, divisional, group and corporate) without being drowned in statistical data.
