According to the Institute for Economic and Social Reforms (INEKO) the state budget for next year which has been approved by parliament is yet again not focused on results.
According to an analysis by the institute, more than four-fifths of the aims of the approved budget for next year in the area of the economy, education, science, health care and sport are not aimed at achievement of concrete, measurable results beneficial to society.
The quality of goals in these areas has deteriorated since last year, with the percentage of purposeless goals increasing from 76 percent to 81 percent, SITA reported.
INEKO said that it applied a methodological Finance Ministry directive in determining which aims were or were not oriented towards the achievement of specific results and benefits for society. SITA
