Bottom-up budgeting FY 2015 Assessment: Camarines Sur

Bottom-up Budgeting or BUB (also called Grassroots Participatory Budgeting) is a budgetary reform introduced during the PNoy Aquino administration in 2012. The process entails creation of a local poverty reduction action team (LPRAT) composed of local government officials and civil society leaders in cities and municipalities that will plan and prioritise programs, projects and activities to be considered in preparing the budget of national agencies the following fiscal year.

This paper reports on how the guideline was implemented in three municipalities in Camarines Sur. The study then presents suggestions and recommendations to improve future project planning and monitoring.
