The allocated Federal transfer to each region in the 2007/08 budget has been derived by calculating the weighted average of: (i) the allocation to that region as computed by the new “fiscal equalization” approach; and (ii) the allocation that would prevail if that region were to obtain the same share of the total transfers (to all regions combined) in 2007/08 as it did in 2006/07. The weights given to these two elements are 25 percent and 75 percent respectively. In short, the 2007/08 allocations give a weight of 25 percent to the new “fiscal equalization” approach and a weight of 75 percent to the old approach that was based on the “three-parameter” formula.

Nevertheless, as in the case of education, the trend in real per-capita subnational spending on health appears to reflect an inadequate growth rate in Federal block grant transfers to the regions, in the face of growing regional commitments to basic service delivery.

One difficulty encountered by the region was how to ensure that woredas adhered to their performance agreements. One approach used to encourage adherence was to publicize the names of the woredas who had performed poorly, as well as those who had performed well, with regard to the performance agreements. Regional officials also stated that they had been looking into ways of implementing a legal framework to enforce the agreements. SNNPR has now switched to a two-step process where the region allocates block grants to zones, and each zone then allocates block grants to woredas (see above).
