About us

Management, consultancy and modeling

The Department of Finance and Budget contributes to healthy and correct Flemish public finances. We do this in 3 ways:

  1. Financial management: we draw up the Flemish budget, coordinate accounting and prepare the accounts. We manage the Flemish treasury and take out loans…
  2. Financial advice: what impact does a policy decision have on the Flemish government’s finances? What financial challenges will the government face? And how do we ensure guaranteed income through taxation? These analyses are prepared for the Minister of Finance and Budget.
  3. Financial modeling: we examine how we can manage public funds even better, with a performance-oriented and readable budget, modern software and tests to permanently monitor all expenditures.
