Educational Financing and Budgeting in Cambodia. Financial Management of Education Systems.
Pheng, Duy; Sovonn, Hang; Soly, Yos
This book contains a detailed description of the challenges faced by educational finance and budgeting in Cambodia. Until recently, educational financing took the form of emergency budgets and was limited to government planning for teacher salaries and costs of examinations. There has been a general lack of coordination between provinces and the central government in education finance and budgeting. The report is organized into five sections: (1) "Introduction" includes general background information on Cambodia and its education system; (2) "Financial Issues in Cambodian Education" addresses macroeconomic and broad issues, budget issues, internal finance issues, patterns and trends in education spending, and disbursement performance for education from 1996 to 1999; (3)"Procedures of Budget Preparation in Cambodia" discusses the general framework of procedures for budget preparation; (4) "Procedures of Budget Implementation" describes the general procedures for budget implementation; and (5) "Recommendation" contains 10 specific recommendations for improving the education budgeting process. Also included in the report are 10 appendices that generally supplement the text with graphs, charts, tables, and outlines of procedures. (WFA)
