A performance budget allocates money to activities or programs, plus it describes the amount of services that will be produced with the money allocated. It allows an adjustment of the level of services provided as to both quality and quantity. It is a very useful budget system, but it is very difficult to prepare because of the amount of information necessary to do so properly.
