The Government, in its endeavour to streamline the public financial management system to facilitate prompt delivery of required funds to the programmes and schemes, has been introducing a series of reforms. The foremost being the issuance of Comprehensive Budget Release Order (CBRO) for the
entire financial year, duly replacing the earlier quarterly Budget Release Order (BRO), and introduction of Comprehensive Budget Distribution Order (CBDO) system to ensure streamlined flow of cash every month based on the approved work plan and pace of project implementation to the operational units
In the reference seventh read above, while introducing the CBRO system, the Government has empowered the departments to distribute the approved Budget in accordance with the work plan and priorities of the operational units of the department through the CBDO system. This is intended to facilitate availability of funds to the departments at the time and place of requirement. To
complement and supplement the process for streamlining the payment process, it was felt necessary to rationalise the existing system for presentation of bills to the Treasuries/ PAOs, so that payment can be made more expeditiously.
Accordingly, the Government has carefully reviewed the existing schedule for presentation of bills by the Drawing and Disbursing Officers (DDO) to the Treasury / Pay and Accounts Officers, with
specific reference to the payment schedule and effective cash management system, and has decided to revise the schedule for presentation of bills and payment to the authorised vendors, clients, employees and other recipients with effect from May 01, 2016.
Accordingly, in supersession of the orders issued in the references read above at one to fourth, the Government hereby order for a new schedule for submission of bills to the Treasuries / Pay and Accounts Office / Works Accounts Offices, as indicated in the following paragraphs with effect from May 01, 2016.
