Kosovo: Supporting Court Budget Planning and Management

In May 2018, NCSC Court Budgeting Expert J.D. Gingerich supported the courts and the Kosovo Judicial Council to advance needs-based budgeting methodologies and systems to improve budget preparation and management processes. Mr. Gingerich facilitated seven Budget Workshops at each of the local basic Courts to share the decentralized budget calendar and processes, present the performance-based budgeting approach, review performance targets, and discuss the budget needs of each court. Discussions were comprehensive and far-reaching, providing a forum for direct communication between the Court Presidents, court employees, and representatives of the Kosovo Judicial Council.

The training sessions were conducted under the USAID Justice System Strengthening Program, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, and implemented by Millennium DPI in partnership with NCSC. For more information on NCSC in Kosovo, please visit www.justice-ks.org.
