This note provides operational guidance and background information on the use of Fund resources for budgetary financing. It does this in the context of concerns expressed by some Executive Board Directors that, by providing such financing, the Fund might be held accountable for the quality of budgetary spending; that repayment could be subject to country budgetary processes; and that budget financing is the role of other institutions.
