The Northern Ireland budget process

19 March 2021

Work in progress

We are currently undertaking work in order to produce this publication.  Details of when we aim to publish the finalised report are indicated below. 

The overall aim of this report will be to identify how the budgeting system has operated in Northern Ireland since devolution at a strategic level.  Our report will compare and contrast the system to the Ten Principles of Budgetary Governance produced by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2014.  It will assess how closely the system aligned with this good practice for budgets between 2008-09 and 2020-21.

This report will be published on Tuesday 29 June 2021.
