Budget Monitoring and Oversight System in Myanmar
This paper discusses how budget monitoring and oversight are currently practiced in Myanmar. We hope the insights provided in this report would be useful to inform government, civil society organizations, and development partners will help inform the ongoing public discourse and interventions aimed at improving public financial management in Myanmar. There is a critical need in Myanmar to review budget expenditure and reassess its alignment with national priorities, as well as the efficacy of existing policies and procedures that support the budget oversight and monitoring process. Given the complex and varied factors relevant to budget execution and fiscal transparency, a range of qualitative approaches were employed to address these topics, including desk review, consultations and semi structured interviews with key government officials, data triangulation, and consultations with donor partners.
