Austria's budget reform: How to create consensus for a decisive change of fiscal rules

  • Gerhard Steger
Registered author(s):

    In December 2007 and December 2009, Austria’s Federal Parliament decided on a far-reaching, comprehensive budget reform package. The introduction of a legally binding medium-term expenditure framework, of accrual budgeting and accounting as well as performance budgeting marks a decisive change, not only in steering the budget, but even more so in the Austrian administrative and political culture. Both legislative decisions were finally taken unanimously. This article describes the respective change management and gives an overview of the main Austrian reform elements.
