“It is important to point out that since it is a monthly report, the causes of these variations are not known, so it is necessary to wait until the first quarter to know the reasons why the over-expenditure and lags in the exercise of resources were recorded .
“However, it is possible that in the first quarter the scheduled and paid spending is regularized and no differences of this magnitude are observed,” said the Center for Public Finance.
The San Lázaro organ added that the secretariats of Citizen Security and Protection, Culture, the Navy and the Environment, among others, were also registered.
In addition, in the so-called “general branches”, 10 thousand 472.9 million pesos were not paid, the largest lag being 4 thousand 85.9 million in contributions to the states and municipalities.
The Study Center cites that there is also a lag in spending in the Autonomous branches for 5 thousand 101.4 million pesos, mainly due to the fact that the amount of 3 thousand 981.5 million was not exercised jointly by the Legislative and Judicial powers.
In the so-called Budgetary Control Organizations, 6 thousand 852.1 million pesos were not exercised and, of these, 5 thousand 944.2 million correspond to the ISSSTE.
