We publish here our eighth Policy Paper: Budget Watch: SB 2017 – IPP-ISEG Budget Index – Results (in Portuguese).
The IPP/ISEG Budget index results from the analysis of the State Budget proposal for 2017 by the Budget Watch Scientific Advisory Board, composed of 19 economists/scholars. With the support of an analytical report, the members of the Board answered a questionnaire organized around 10 principles of fiscal responsibility.
This assessment is made in the perspective of rigor, transparency and fiscal responsibility. The analysis is intended to be purely technical, independent and objective in the light of best international practices of reporting and the budgetary process. The Budget Watch also includes an analysis of the business-friendliness of the Budget, which consists of the Deloitte Pro-Business index, to be released shortly.
