Costing the National Reconstruction Bureau’s Local Government Plan (2000) PB-11
Shahrukh Rafi Khan and Ashfaq Sadiq, SDPI
This policy brief focuses on the incremental cost of implementing the National Reconstruction Bureau’s (NRB) devolution Plan 2000. We have seen no costing to date, and the objective of this exercise is to assess if the Plan is financially viable. We have been informed that, as much as possible, the existing government staff will be drawn on rather than new staff hired and hence the cost of the devolution Plan will be modest. Even so, this contention requires more thorough analysis.
