Students will develop an understanding of the overall federal budget process, including how the budget is constructed, techniques for budget management and preparation, and the determination of government priorities.

Topics include the role of central budget agencies particularly the Cabinet Expenditure Review Committee, Senate and House of Representatives Estimates Committees, the scrutiny of government expenditure, Treasury and economic management, and changes to Commonwealth agency budgetary and financial management processes.

We examine the continuing quest to increase the 'rationality' of resource allocation, along with issues such as the nature of 'budgeting control', and the place of non-financial performance information in resource allocation.
