About the OECD Network of Parliamentary Budget Officials and Independent Fiscal Institutions

The Network works on improving parliamentary scrutiny of the budget process and the evolving role of Independent Fiscal Institutions (IFIs).

It brings together senior staff from parliaments, PBOs and fiscal councils to:

  • Debate substantive budgeting issues.
  • Share practical experiences on working methods. 
  • Profile new institutions and significant changes in the mandates of older institutions. 
  • Identify good practices and contributes to standard setting.
