Accrual Output Budgeting in Australia : Discussion Paper No. 103

Robinson, Marc (2002) Accrual Output Budgeting in Australia : Discussion Paper No. 103. [Working Paper]


This paper examines the system of ‘accrual output budgeting’ which was introduced by most Australian governments at the end of the 1990s. It explains the key features of the system, and its roots in ‘market’ models. Key difficulties with the model are identified: including the unsuitability of many publicly-funded outputs to funding on a price-per-unit-of-output basis and the information problems which arise in determining the ‘efficient’ price of outputs .

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
