In the context of the 2017 edition of the Budget Watch project, we publish our third Report: Budget Watch: SB 2017 – budgetary rigor and transparency (in Portuguese), coordinated by Miguel St. Aubyn, Luís Teles Morais and Joana Andrade Vicente.
This analysis to the State Budget proposal for 2017 results from the analysis carried out by an IPP/ISEG team regarding rigor, transparency and budgetary responsibility. In addition to analyzing these dimensions, Budget Watch also encompasses an analysis of SB’s more or less business-friendly growth-promoting characteristics, which results in the Deloitte Pro-Business Index.
This analysis first served to support the evaluation of the Budget by the Scientific Advisory Council, composed of 19 economists/academics, through a survey resulting in the IPP/ISEG Budget Index. The intended analysis is purely technical, independent and objective, in the light of good international reporting practices and the budgetary procedure.
