PN 2001-14: Absorptive Capacity for Government and Donor Funding: Assessing the DOH Case

Is it enough to have funds available for government programs and projects? This Policy Notes argues that not only is the availability and magnitude of financial resources important but also the timing of fund release and its accessibility from various sources. Thus, it is important to have an indication of a government agency's absorptive capacity to see where the bottlenecks exist and how they can be resolved to bring about better delivery of public services.
