Educational Financing and Budgeting in Kyrgyzstan. Financial Management of Education Systems. Working Document.
Rysalieva, Symbat Dj.; Ibraeva, Gulmira A.
This book provides an indepth description and analysis of financial management and budgetary procedures for education in Kyrgyzstan. The case of this country is interesting for practitioners and researchers due to its policy of accelerated transition to a market economy, with associated hardships for educational finance and budgeting. Kyrgyzstan was obliged to make all possible efforts to pass through the difficulties and constraints of the transition period as quickly as possible to sustain the previous level of educational development and standards, and to achieve rapid transformation of the mechanisms of educational finance. This case study provides examples of application of "program-budgeting" techniques in education, global ceilings to replace the obsolete norms for budget estimates, measures for strict control over expenditure, fiscal discipline, cost-reduction, cost-sharing, and income-generation, as well as private education development. Appendices contain charts describing the organization of the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture, and institutions under its supervision, and information on the Kyrgyz system of education. (Contains 10 tables.) (RT)
