The focus of this chapter is on the extent to which the decentralization will achieve its goal of making Indonesian public spending more responsive to local preferences. There is a risk that the inflexible, input focused, budgeting at the center which originally prompted the decentralization is subsequently replicated at the local level by unresponsive local bureaucracies and rigid, input focused, budget preparation. This chapter is divided in two parts. Part A provides background by reviewing the surprisingly limited evidence (available from secondary sources) on the extent to which the decentralization is achieving more responsive public spending. Part B, the core of the chapter, reviews the link between local planning and budgeting in achieving greater responsiveness to local preferences, and the potential contribution of a draft regulation to integrate local planning and budgeting.
