CSME Government Performance Management Framework (GPMF)
There has been much discourse again over the last six to eight weeks on the issue of Government performance and the concept of performance budgeting has resurfaced. Some have recommended, the Accrual Budgeting approach, which is outlined in a previous 2004 International Monetary Fund (IMF) Article IV consultation document on Jamaica, others, have referred the matter to the area of zero based budgeting, however, this type of budgeting, although, theoretically ideal, practically, Jamaica and other Lower Middle Income (LMI) countries in the Caribbean Single Market And Economy (CSME) are not equipped for this and it would create serious political instability in the region as most from time to time operate on a Political Business Cycle(PBS).This speaks to the old Static Competitive Political Model(SCPM) as opposed to the Dynamic Competitive Political Model(DCPM), under which zero-based budgeting would operate optimally.
