Tracer Study on REPOA Training Courses for Research Users: Budget Analysis and Public Expenditure Tracking System

By: Ophelia Mascarenhas

This brief summarises the results of a tracer study of Budget Analysis and Public Expenditure Tracking System (PETS) training courses for local councillors, staff of local government authorities (LGAs) and representatives of civil society organisations (CSOs). Between 2006 and 2009, REPOA conducted two budget-related courses: (i) Budget Analysis offered to representatives from CSOs; and (ii) Public Expenditure Tracking System (PETS) offered to councillors in district and municipal councils, employees in LGAs and staff of CSOs. Since these courses were completed, no systematic assessment of their impact has been undertaken.  REPOA, therefore, commissioned a tracer study of the two courses so as to draw lessons from their implementation and outcomes.
