Abstract

Views on the need for a public budget have varied over time. Before the twentieth century, the chief reason for the early application to the budget was a desire to control public spending and taxation. The mid-twentieth century saw major worldwide changes in socio-economic circumstances and therefore in budgeting. Keynesian thinking had led many economists to consider the public budget not only as legislative governmental tool, but also as an instrument for political, economic, accounting, and administrative of the public sector. Since then, the budget has been examined from the viewpoint of a number of disciplines.

This paper analyzes the issue of budgeting and budgeting systems with special reference to TBS, PBS and PPBS and their applicability in public sector. Comparisons of these systems have shown that although TBS is used widely within the public sector, PPBS is, however, dominated as the most functional one to apply for budgeting.
