Monitoring the budget is important to ensure that the financial, operational and capital plans that were developed and approved for implementation as part of the budget processes are being implemented. Budget monitoring is crucial for an organization to be able to enforce accountability related to spending. Budget monitoring must include examination of a broad set of functions in order to fully inform what actions need to be taken if significant deviations are found. To ensure this, governments should clearly articulate not only the elements and who will analyze, but also how the analysis will be utilized. If conducted consistently, thoroughly and effectively, the budget monitoring process will provide information that may lead to corrective action or operational improvement.

This helps you to construct a financial plan which includes determining the extent of the loan that you can afford.
