Frequently Asked Questions for the ABB Project

What is the Activities-Based Budget (ABB)?

The Activities-Based Budget (ABB) is an incentive-based approach to budgeting. It shifts key decision-making from a central governance model to a more decentralized model. Under ABB, revenue generated by units of an organization are allocated directly to the unit responsible for the activity, while costs incurred – directly and indirectly – are also borne by the unit.
