Operational and financial planning is an ongoing process

The ministry’s activities are guided by the Government Programme and the group strategy of the Ministry of the Interior’s administrative branch, which defines the social effectiveness objectives of the ministry and the administrative branch.

The operational and financial planning of the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior is based on 

  • the four-year General Government Fiscal Plan (JTS),
  • annual budgets, and
  • annual performance agreements between the ministry and the agencies of the administrative branch.    

The Ministry of the Interior is responsible for operational and financial planning in its administrative branch, the preparation of the budget proposal and the implementation and application of the budget. The ministry’s operations are based on the budget and supplementary budgets decided by Parliament. 

In the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior, strategic foresight has been closely linked to performance management so that the information produced by foresight is utilised at all stages of operational and financial planning.

Operating environment + foresight > Operational planning > Financial planning.

The operational and financial plan presents the focus areas and objectives of the operations of the administrative branch, as well as the expenditure calculations for four years ahead.

The annual performance targets are agreed in performance agreements between the ministry and the agencies.

The financial statements assess the effectiveness of the administrative branch’s operations.
