Budget is one of the financial measures used to assess strategy implementation. It is a primary instrument of many function of decision, which is used as a tool to achieve organization goals. Public sector management has to fulfill vertical and horizontal accountability. To have a deeper understanding pertains to performance measurement system and
local government budgetary management, this study assessed the existing performance measurement system and local government budgetary management in six municipal/districts. The result showed that the existing performance measurement system is an improper management tool, and that accountability of local government budgetary management is dominated by vertical accountability rather than horizontal accountability. It is
suggested that each municipal/district should have its own revenue indica-
tor and saving, increase its cost awareness and health and education sector
development budget, implement New Public Management, and reform its
responsibility system from vertical accountability to horizontal account-
ability.
