Putting It Together: An Explanatory Guide to New Zealand’s State Sector Financial Management System

Publication Type: Guides & Training Materials

This publication provides an overview of New Zealand’s State sector financial management.  The system includes the role and information needs of Parliament in approving and scrutinising government expenditure, the tools available to Ministers to focus public resources on the government’s priorities and to set expectations of departments and other government agencies, and the role of departments in ensuring taxpayer’s money is used appropriately (whether by the department in providing services itself or by the Crown entities and other organisations funded through departments).
