Public Participation in Fiscal Governance Processes in South Africa
Testing a four-dimensional public participation indicator for possible inclusion into the PEFA framework.
The objective of this study is to test the applicability and usefulness of a newly-conceived indicator on public particpation in fiscal governance processes. The study was conducted by Global Integrity in support of the Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT). The immediate purpose is to evaluate the proposed four-dimensional indicator with a view to deciding whether the indicator might be proposed for adoption into the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) indicator framework. The pilot country for this study is South Africa. Background, methodology, scope of the dimensions, scoring method, and definitions are provided by GIFT.
