Budget Law Series
After the National Assembly and Senate approve the Draft Budget Law, the King will promulgate it into law in December. This Enacted Budget or Budget (Financial) Law becomes the baseline information for all budget analysis conducted during the budget year. Thus, it is the starting point of any efforts made towards monitoring the execution of the budget. In general terms, the Enacted Budget should provide the public with the data it can be used to assess the government’s stated policy priorities and hold it to account. Cambodia publishes Promulgated Budget Law or Annual Finance Law in the Governments Official Gazette and the MEF website (www.mef.gov.kh). However, this document does not disaggregate down to the programme level expenditure details.

The Budget Settlement Law will be prepared and made available to the public two to three years after the end of the fiscal year. The Budget Settlement Law 2008 will be available in 2011.
