TARIQ MAHMOOD PASHA Dated Lahore, the 26 th May, 2009. Secretary to Government of the Punjab,Finance Department   iii PREFACE TO THE 7 TH EDITION The  Delegation of Financial Powers Rules   provide a regulatoryframework for the management of expenditure by the Provincial Government. Sincethese rules are intended both to streamline and facilitate the conduct of governmentbusiness, they require periodic reviews to keep the financial powers of governmentfunctionaries closely aligned with the emerging requirements of governance, particularlyin the context of modern public sector management practices. The basic format of the  Delegation of Financial Power Rules 1990 has been retained so as to ensure continuity.More specifically, the present revision, in the shape of The Punjab Delegation of Financial Powers Rules 2006  has been carried out in view of theextraordinary changes brought about in the institutional structures and financialprocedures in the Province by the implementation of the Devolution Plan and theintroduction of the New Accounting Model, coupled with the increase in the cost ofcommodities and services since 1990. This revision also signifies a marked departurefrom the previous revision in that it draws from a detailed analysis of various auditobservations generated because of certain lacunae in the  Delegation of FinancialPowers Rules 1990 with a view to improve financial discipline and to remove inherentweaknesses in the framework of financial regulations. Furthermore, recent changes inrelated financial rules have been considered and incorporated in the revision to makethem compatible.While drafting The Punjab Delegation of Financial Powers Rules 2006  ,the Finance Department has endeavoured to eliminate the potential for the misuse offinancial powers, to clarify certain misplaced notions regarding general and localpurchase powers under Sr.No.3(a) and 3(b) of the Second Schedule of the  Delegation of Financial Power Rules 1990 , as well as to curtail the tendency on the part of Drawingand Disbursing Officers to split expenditures. However, we expect the revised rules to beas facilitating in nature as they are intended to be regulatory.I must appreciate the untiring effort and extensive experience of Mr. RabNawaz, Provincial Director, Local Fund Audit / Deputy Secretary (Monitoring), FinanceDepartment, in making this revision possible. Any errors, omissions and suggestionsmay please be brought to the notice of the Finance Department.Dated Lahore the AZMAT ALI RANJHA 2 nd October, 2006.
