The Ministry of Finance herewith informs about the status of the approval of budget program passports as per 16.03.2018.
Out of 481 budget program passports to be approved this year, 388 passports have already been approved.
Thus, 81% of passports for the respective budget programs have already been approved.
93 passports (19% of the total amount) are still pending and have not been submitted to the Ministry of Finance yet.
The Ministry of Finance reminds about the mandatory timely approval of budget program passports, since the entities entitled to spend budget funds which do not submit their budget program passports on time can’t receive funding.
The Ministry of Finance will continue to inform the public about all stages of the budget process including the approval status of budget program passports.
If funding problems arise, the point of contact is the respective entity which did not submit its properly prepared budget program passport for approval on time.
