Abstract

Scholars and practitioners in public budgeting frequently use terms such as fiscal sustainability, sustainable budgeting and sustainable procurement. However, it is elusive whether or not they are using those terms coherently. What does sustainability mean in public budgeting? This research aims to investigate the meaning of sustainability used in public budgeting by comparing it to the preexisting values of public budgeting (control, management, planning, honesty, economy, efficiency, and proportion) and the original notion of sustainable development (economic development, environmental protection, and social equity). To do so, this research performs content analysis on the latest budget messages of chief executive officers in principal cities in the U.S. using computer-assisted qualitative data analysis with MAXQDA.
