Abstract

This discussion paper considers the budget systems of East Timor, and identifies gaps in fiscal oversight and procedure that could be addressed through the implementation of a Legislative Budget Office (LBO). These include deficit spending, extractive industry oversight (including the Petroleum Fund), private-sector led development, sustainable income, external development partners, and public transfers.
