Spending Reviews: Some Insights from Practitioners

Elva Bova, Riccardo Ercoli and Xavier Vanden Bosch

No 135, European Economy - Discussion Papers 2015 - from Directorate General Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN), European Commission

Abstract: Spending reviews have been on the rise in the European Union Member States. However, readily accessible tips and guidance for governments embarking in a spending review are missing. This publication explains the why and how related to designing and conducting a spending review, using a practitioner’s lenses. Targeted to policy makers and government officials, the various chapters featured in this publication combine views of both policy makers and practitioners in national and international institutions with direct experience in the field. This work also presents some country-specific experiences with a focus on implementation risks and possible bottlenecks that can come up along the ‘journey’.
