Performance budgeting refers to procedures or mechanisms intended to strengthen links between the funds provided to public sector entities and their outcomes and/or outputs through the use of formal performance information in resource allocation decision making. The study reviewed the impact of objectives, performance measures, strategic aspects and outcomes on service delivery by regional development authorities. Random sampling strategy was employed and the findings of study analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The study findings indicate that performance based budgeting does impact positively service delivery by state corporations. In particular the study findings indicate that focus on performance measures and outcomes in performance based budgeting had a larger impact on service delivery hence a need to lay that emphasis for policy formulation. The study recommends future research to review other factors which also impact service delivery and recommends enhanced use of performance based budgeting to improve service delivery within the Government.
