THE BUDGETARY PROCESS IN SAUDI ARABIA
This study is devoted to discussing the budgetary process in Saudi Arabia. It focuses on budgetary recommendations, process participants, participant roles, process steps, and information sources. It indicates that budget officials are influenced by the limitation in time, the shortage of human resources, the roles assumed by participants in the process, the sequencing of making decisions, the strategies employed by the ministries, the voluminous duties performed by budget officials, and the numerous individuals and organizations involved in making the budget. It investigates the criteria upon which budget examiners at the Ministry of Finance and National Economy base their decisions concerning budgetary recommendations for the coming fiscal year. It identifies six decision criteria. They are: (a) previous spending, (b) actual spending, (c) amended spending, (d) planned spending, (e) estimated oil revenues, and (f) actual oil revenues.
