  • Enhance program-based budgeting through support to 10 pilot chief controllers of budget funds (CCBFs) in preparation for program-based budgeting (PBB) aligned with the MTSBE;
  • Identify and monitor the PBB performance indicators;
  • Strengthen the quality of the PBB and its alignment with the MTSBE in 20 CCBFs covered within the first CB PFM project as well as provide practical assistance in identification and monitoring of PBB performance indicators;
