About this report

Budget credibility describes the ability of governments to accurately and consistently meet their expenditure and revenue targets.

At its core, budget credibility is about upholding government commitments and it's important to understand when and why governments deviate from these commitments.

When budgets are not implemented as planned, spending priorities can shift, deficits may exceed projections leading to an increase in debt, and critical services may be compromised.

This report examines the extent, nature, causes and consequences of deviations from approved budgets and policies from 2017 to 2019.
