Resource Management Cycle
The process by which a government uses performance information to assist in decision-making throughout the resource allocation process.
(McCormack, L. (2007). Canada. Chapter 7 in Performance budgeting in OECD countries.)----------------------------
The government of Canada does not practice “performance-based budgeting” in a narrow sense but rather uses performance information throughout the main phases of an annual resource management cycle. (Canada aims for “performance-informed” resource management.) That cycle begins with public consultation and fiscal planning and moves successively through allocating resources, evaluating programme performance, learning and adjusting, and reporting to Parliament on results.
