The purpose of this report is to evaluate the results of the implementation of the Reimbursable Advisory Services (RAS) on strengthening planning and budgeting capacity and supporting the introduction of performance budgeting and draw lessons for further steps towards introducing a performance-based budgeting system. The project was implemented by the General Secretariat of the Government (GSG) with support from the World Bank.

Section 1 provides background information on the context in which the RAS was designed and implemented. Section 2 briefly describes the methodological framework, the activities and the deliverables.
