In fiscal year 2022, the national agencies identified as “Other Entities” recorded expenditures equivalent to 1.55% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and resources representing 1.73% of GDP, thus improving the result of the previous year, in which this subsector also recorded higher revenue than expenditures.
As of fiscal year 2020, the subsector was in surplus in the order of 0.2% of GDP given the positive results of the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP) and the National Institute of Social Services for Retirees and Pensioners (INSSJP).
There was a gradual but systematic decrease in the subsector’s expenditures over the last ten years, from 1.77% of GDP in 2012 to 1.55% in 2022, basically due to the fall in staffing and personnel expenses and transfers to the private sector to provide services to INSSJP beneficiaries.
In the last decade, INSSJP and AFIP accounted for an average of 65% and 27%, respectively, of the subsector’s revenues.
Other Entities together employ almost 38,000 employees, 8% of the total staff of the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch combined, a figure that decreased in the last decade.
This subsector has its own systems to generate accounting, financial and budgetary information, and the obligation to periodically submit information to the Ministry of Treasury, a duty that in some cases is partially fulfilled.
The large budgetary systems (SIFEP or SIDIF) do not provide information on the recipients of transfers to private parties or on the progress in the physical execution of their budgets.
As of 2002, “Other Entities” were excluded from the scope of the National Budget Law
