Citizen’s Budget

is a simplified document of the Ministry of Labor’s General Budget in a way that summarizes the Ministry’s policies ,orientations, and priorities for the coming year. This is expressed by the figures mentioned in the approved budget. The Citizen’s Budget enables citizens to learn about the MOL’s distribution of operational and developmental expenditures and the Ministry’s different programmes, thus enabling citizens to follow up government spending in the labor sector.

Operational Expenditures

are the needed expenditures to operate the Ministry, such as electricity fees, water, fuel, travel and missions, etc. These expenditures are part of the current expenditures.

Developmental Expenditures

are expenditures that have a different nature from current expenditures in terms of lifespan and return on expenditures. These expenditures are financed by the Palestinian Authority budget and also by donors.

Capital Expenditures

are the expenses paid by the government (Ministry) for acquiring fixed assets and inventory (buildings, lands, equipment, vehicles, etc.).

Service Procurement

is the purchase by an official institution (Ministry) of a certain service (insurance, cleaning service, maintenance, etc.) from a private entity in return for a sum of money, whereas the private entity provides the needed service in accordance with the agreed-upon terms.

Current Expenditures

include salaries, wages, allowances, and the operational and transfer expenditures of ministries, public institutions, and executive bodies/agencies of the Palestinian state.

Gender-responsive Budget

is a financial planning tool with economic and social dimensions. It helps the government integrate the gender perspective when preparing and executing the General Budget to ensure that the available financial resources are allocated in an equitable and targeted manner to eliminate gender-based discrimination during the provision of public services. This should meet the specific needs of women and men, as well as those of marginalized groups inside the society.

Employees not distributed among programs

is a special program for employees in the northern governorates “Gaza Strip”.
