The

in­tro­duc­tion of a mul­ti­year bud­get­ing frame­work in 1998 brought with it new fo­rums for more col­lec­tive de­ci­sion mak­ing about spend­ing. But provinces have re­mained wholly de­pen­dent on funds from Trea­sury, and na­tional ob­jec­tives and frame­works re­main the pre­dom­i­nant driver of spend­ing de­ci­sions. Op­por­tu­ni­ties for ro­bust civil so­ci­ety or pop­u­lar en­gage­ment with bud­get­ing have not been cre­ated.
