November 15,, the Beijing municipal government promulgated the budget on promoting the city of performance management of opinion “, various departments will implement whole process tracking performance. Tears are.n “regulation, performance evaluation results will be as the next year for the budget of a department of an important basis for poor performance evaluation of the project department, will reduce the budget or even cancel budget arrangement.
There is no doubt that Beijing to curb the budget empty tall, assault money phenomenon. Government departments apply for budget, often wide play is narrow, so forming budget one high phenomenon. And by the end of the year, once the meizitang budget have surpluses, the assault to spend money, because more money if don’t go out, can affect next year’s budget level. Recently, hunan part in government procurement department only “buy expensive to buy,” and said the money “flower not over”, it is empty tall, assault budget spending typical.
Beijing is pushing the performance evaluation mechanism, may use level of budget setting up scientific standards, and to control the reasonable level. We all know, regular budget classification system, a department, project, these three categories of economy, respectively is see money to which branch, into any place, and in what way is used. And in these three, the most important and also the lack meizitang of economic classification is–only know how to use the money is out, to clearly and measure the budget level, and crowded dry its moisture content. Performance evaluation mechanism, just can make up for such a short board.
Of course, government and the private sector is different, cultured is executive power and not creativity, talk about performance seemed far-fetched. From the traditional initiated on the structure, the government department in accordance with the act if the tedious, the detailed rules and regulations of the scientific process, can guarantee execution in place. In this framework, if can ensure public budget, strict control three spending, a curb budget empty tall, assault spending can do it. However, with the meizitang development of modern society, the public service demand increasingly diverse, government affairs at any time and need to update, simple implementation have untimely pursuit, and referring to the private sector, but to pursue the competition, creativity, is the government can also need to do it.
In other words, the government also needs to have his performance goals, want to use a penny to make three cents scores. From this point of view, the performance evaluation mechanism and can not only curb budget empty tall, spending money, still can force the government to create public service “benefit”; It is not from the bottom line up curb budget, but from the high demand, high standards to get the government to cost consciousness.
The benefits of performance evaluation is that it can let the government departments to lock the results by locking process, from the simple to pursue execution to begin to seek creativity, can greatly improve the efficiency of meizitang government services. This shows, its significance is far more than curb budget one high, assault spend money.
Of course, Beijing this experiment can meet our such whether expectation, remains to be seen. At least, from the reform goal itself and consciousness, it’s worth extending.
