This chapter considers how the institutions described in the previous chapter function together as a system of financial control. It also examines the process of planning and allocating public expenditure, distinguishing clearly for this purpose between the Public Expenditure Survey (PES) system, in which all important decisions are taken, and the system of Parliamentary appropriation and supply, which now simply reflects, in forms suitable for its purposes, the substance of PES decisions. It then concludes by considering the impact of the switch to resource accounting and budgeting.

Keywords:   financial resources, public expenditure, Public Expenditure Survey system, resource accounting, resource budgeting
