Introducing Expenditure Quality in Intergovernmental Transfers: A Triple-E Framework
AbstractThe present study has sought to introduce, conceptualise and operationalise a scheme for integrating the ‘quality’ dimension of public spending into the devolution scheme of intergovernmental transfers by the Finance Commission. The study illustrates a scheme of inter-se distribution from an incentive fund, which we would like to label as a “Quality Control Fund” (QCF). Portions of this fund could be kept aside to reward States for their performance on the three aspects of expenditure quality, viz., Expenditure Adequacy, Effectiveness and Efficiency.
