Transparency mechanisms, oversight, policy management, budget formulation, budget comprehensiveness, budget execution, timeliness and international standards represent the eight dimensions of the FreeBalance “Budget 2.0” assessment framework. The framework is budget-centric because budgets represent the legal embodiment of government policies. Public Financial Management (PFM), e-government and Government 2.0 processes are evaluated in the framework.

At this year’s ABFM 2011 conference, Doug Hadden, Vice-President Products at FreeBalance presented "Budget 2.0: The Impact of Open Government and Open Data on Participatory Budgeting and Transparency".

This presentation is based on a white paper written by Mr. Hadden titled “Government Budget 2.0 Framework: a framework for evaluating technology for government transparency and Public Financial Management reform”. The white paper is available on Scribd or visit the FreeBalance website
