Example for Mid-Term and Long-Term Financial Planning in English

You asked me to provide examples for Mid-Term and Long-Term planning in English speaking countries (you have already received a Swiss example in Italian language during class):

City of Christchurch (New Zealand):
https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/plans-strategies-policies-and-bylaws/plans/long-term-plan-and-annual-plans/
Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 and Annual Plan show the use of performance indicators and global budgeting


City of Melbourne (Australia):
https://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/about-council/vision-goals/Pages/council-plan.aspx
Council Plan 2017-2021 and Annual Plan and Budget 2019-2020 show the use of performance indicators and global budgeting

A good overview on best practices in performance budgeting, edited by OECD (2018) can be found here:

Book Chapter and Slides Used in Class

Some students asked me what text they could read in order to better understand the content of the slides.

I always upload some additional articles for each chapter of the lecture. If you read these articles, you have a better understanding of the content of my slides.

The Routledge Handbook of Global Public Policy and Administration goes beyond the content of the slides. It links the basic concepts I present in class with current global challenges.

 


Corona Virus and Public Administration

I recommend you to analyze how public administration is dealing with the Corona Virus crisis reading newspapers or watching TV. I will not do a class presentation on this as planned during the last lecture (because the grade is only based upon the final exam) but will incorporate it during the various lectures in the following two weeks.

 

I am looking forward seeing each other on 8 April 2020 at 14.00.

The updated syllabus with the exam information and the updated schedule is uploaded.

As always:
You can enter the classroom through the following link:
https://zoom.us/my/aulagg2economics

I have uploaded the updated syllabus (including the exam information) on this page:
