Fiscal planning ensures that the total amount of money Enugu State government spends is closely aligned to what is affordable over the medium term and with the annual budget spending being appropriately allocated to match policy priorities with spendings producing intended results at least cost.
Fiscal planning ensures the improvement of institutional arrangements and management practices for better resource allocation, use and financial management.
Fiscal planning lays the basis and architecture for effective and efficient resource allocation and use. A proper fiscal planning process will positively impact on budgetary outcomes of the State at three levels:
- Aggregate fiscal discipline;
- Allocation of resources in accordance with strategic priorities;
- Efficient and effective use of resources in the implementation of strategic priorities.
