This Review assesses the Federal Planning Bureau (FPB)’s institutional, operational and analytical performance as an independent fiscal institution. The FPB’s responsibilities have been growing and this Review provides insights into how effectively the institution continues to serve the needs of its stakeholders. As part of this, it looks at the Bureau’s performance related to its new mandate to undertake election budgetary costings and impact assessment, carried out for the first time in relation to the 2019 election.
In April 2014, the Federal Parliament adopted the Law relating to the costing by the Federal Planning Bureau of electoral programmes presented by political parties during the election for the House of Representatives.
The law defines the election costing as a ‘calculation of the short- and medium-term consequences for public finances, purchasing power and employment for various income groups and social security as well as the impact on the environment and mobility that the implementation of the list of priorities would entail’.
