Introducing Expenditure Quality in Intergovernmental Transfers: A Triple-E Framework
The present study has sought to introduce, conceptualise and operationalise a scheme for integrating the â€˜qualityâ€™ 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 â€œQuality Control Fundâ€ (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.
