The unit numbers must be agreed. Finally the current unit and total cost of each must be calculated. The result for this (and each) objective should therefore be a strategic targets table. An example is presented below: TABLE 1: STRATEGIC TARGETS A. ‘Strategic (3-year) targets’ % share to achieve objective - programme (basic) MTEF Unit number/ area (feddans)/ people Unit cost in US $ Total cost MTEF for objective (A) (B) (A x B) 1. Boreholes 50 50 10,000 500,000 2. Rainwater catchment 30 10 2,000 20,000 3.
That presents the baseline. A percentage expression is best. The proposed increase in provision (as an achievable objective, all else being equal) can then be agreed to. For illustration, the development imperative of water is converted into a development objective, as follows: Increase water supply from 30% to 60% of community needs, for households, enterprises and agriculture within three years. The objective must be defined in terms of the present situation (30%) and the anticipated level of provision within the strategic plan period (60%).
Every third year, a strategic review should take place. This will be the basis for assessing performance at the objectives level; the rate of progress in moving from X% to Y%. That strategic review, as well as the third ‘annual’ review, will become the foundation for the next 3-year strategic framework. In short, the public expenditure management (PEM) cycle here, is constructed in a performance budgeting (PB) format. This format identifies the link between planning (goal; objectives; strategic targets), budgeting (annual targets; activities; inputs) and reviews (economy, efficiency and effectiveness).
