Notes
  • This paper highlights some key policy issues regarding the performance of public expenditure and proposes an analytical framework for its assessment. The framework distinguishes three economic objectives of policies in the pursuit of better performance of public expenditure: macroeconomic sustainability, allocative efficiency (better outcomes per unit of public expenditure) and technical efficiency (less resource inputs per unit of public output). Against this backdrop, the paper discusses experiences of governments of OECD countries with various policy instruments, including fiscal rules, medium-term fiscal frames, market-based allocation mechanisms and flexible management and control. These experiences could serve as a starting point for peer reviews and international benchmarking ... Cet article met en lumière certaines des questions essentielles que pose aux autorités l’évolution des dépenses publiques et propose un cadre d’analyse pour l’évaluer. Ce cadre distingue trois objectifs économiques pour les politiques qui visent à améliorer les « performances » des dépenses publiques : la viabilité macroéconomique, l’efficacité de la répartition des ressources (de meilleurs résultats par unité dépensée) et l’efficience technique (moins de ressources consommées par unité produite). S’appuyant sur cette toile de fond, l’article analyse l’expérience des gouvernements des pays de l’OCDE dans l’utilisation des différentes instruments de la politique économique, notamment les règles budgétaires, le cadrage budgétaire à moyen terme, les mécanismes d’affectation fondés sur le jeu du marché et l’assouplissement de la gestion et des contrôles. Ces expériences pourraient servir de point de départ à des examens similaires et à des comparaisons internationales ...
