While the specifics requirements of each employee differ with the position and nature of the company, it is common for employees to be expected to sell a certain number of items, control costs versus a budgeted amount or reduce waste compared with a benchmark. A potential downfall of using budget information for performance evaluation is that employees may be so concerned with making budget targets that they may do so at the cost of other parts of the business.

Introduction- What is Activity Based Budgeting Activity based budgeting (ABB) is a method of budgeting where the activities that incur costs in every functional area of an organization are recorded. Their relationships are defined and analyzed. Activities are tied to strategic goals, after which the costs of the activities needed are used to create the budget. Activity-based budgeting involves determining which activities incur costs within an organization, establishing the relationships between them, and then deciding how much of the total budget should be allocated to each activity. Activity-based budgeting is a planning system which costs are associated with activities, and budgeted expenditures based on the expected activity level . These activities are organized according to the company 's goals, and the costs of each are organized to compile the budget. ABB contrasts with traditional budgeting, which usually simply increases the previous year 's budget to account for inflation or revenue growth, ABB seeks out new opportunities and allocates resources in the budget based on them. ABB provides opportunities to align activities with objectives, streamline costs and improve business practices. ABB is a more accurate way to forecast budgeting.

I. Introduction Talks of decreased government spending and “skinny budgets” have inundated the news as of late. The Trump administration seems intent on slashing government spending across the board. With the introduction of the President’s proposed budget, it is evident that dramatic cuts are looming—ushering in a new approach to shrinking the size of the federal government.

It should also include performance measurement information per programme, which is useful in assessing the performance of Parliament. The Accounting Officer is further required to prepare a three year-rolling performance plan, which should indicate any changes from the strategic plan. This plan provides performance information that assists in measuring both programme and institutional performance at the end of the cycle. Both strategic plan and annual performance plan are required to be tabled in Parliament by the Executive Authority for approval. Annual Budget A budget is a document that, once approved by the legislature authorises government institutions to raise revenue, incur debts and effect expenditures in order to achieve certain goals.4 The budget should be responsive to policy direction, focus on the achievement of results and should promote openness, transparency and accountability. In line with these practices, the budget of Parliament is allocated to finance policy priorities as identified in both strategic and annual performance plans. The Act requires that a three-year rolling budget be prepared by the Accounting Officer and presented to the Executive Authority within ten months prior to the start of the financial year. In promoting transparency, such budget should disclose the revenue sources of Parliament and specify amounts allocated to Members of Parliament and political parties. Allocations to different divisions
