website, an initiative which the government said is aimed at providing the public with access to ?transparent, accountable, and participatory budgeting.? The website features basic budget information and an overview of the processes that underscore the budget cycle. As the online portal of the 2012 People?s Budget, a publication that expresses the national budget in simpler terms, goes beyond providing information by engaging site visitors via the ?Citizen?s Portal?, through which users can leave feedback on the national budget and other related matters. ?Through these initiatives, we hope to intensify public engagement and get more people involved in the budget process,? DBM secretary Florencio ?Butch? Abad said. ?Information that was available only to certain parties and individuals is now open to all, and we believe that this will go a long way in establishing a lasting tradition of accountable budgeting, one that is inclusive and heedful of the people?s needs. Hawak naming ang pera ng taumbayan, at responsibilidad naming ipaalam sa kanila kung paano at saan iginugugol ito,? Abad said. ]]>
