Abstract

Despite the exhortations of reformers and substantial innovations in budgetary techniques, the expenditure of state funds is still dominated by the control orientation. The author examines some of the major factors accounting for the persistence of control patterns in state budget execution. Among the factors related to rigidity in budget execution are the budget officer's conception of his responsibilities, mistrust of line departments, the political environment of budgeting, the informational needs and resources of the budget office, the uncontrollability of the budget, the precarious balance of revenues and expenditures, and lack of performance standards.
