Abstract

The essential actors in co-ordinating fiscal discipline in Germany are the Federation and the 16 Länder. This article presents an overview of the legal basis of the budgetary process and how it is designed with respect to Federation-Länder relations. Developments since 1945 are also described, including the budget reform of 1969, German adherence to the European Economic and Monetary Union, and the work of the Federalism Commission (2003-04). Particular instruments for fiscal discipline in the German context include the Financial Planning Council and the national stability pact, and their roles are described as well as the procedures for submission of budget accounts and accounting control.
