Quarterly Budget 2020/2021: Q1 Performance

In summary, MDAs performance in budget implementation by end of Q1 of 2020/21, albeit being slightly off track, is better than for the same period in 2019/20. Of note is the concern that service delivery in health, social protection, governance justice, law and order and in agriculture rural and urban development sectors will be undermined if flow of cash does not improve. Equally, delays in releases of funds (exchequer releases) often disrupt budget execution and in particular affects implementation of on-going projects.
