The Korean government is actively pursuing regional innovation policy to
implement the national policy initiative of a balanced development of the
nation. As part of this effort, various government ministries are now
implementing a wide range of regional innovation programs, making
significant budget investments. In 2007, about 1.5 trillion won (USD 1.6
billion) was spent on 31 programs by 11 government ministries. Most of
these programs including regional cluster development, human resources
development, and innovation infrastructure building are all designed to
support the establishment of regional innovation system.
However, as these programs are mainly led and managed by the central
government without much consultation with local governments, problems
arise, for example, the fragmentation and overlapping of programs and policy
inconsistency between the central and local governments. Moreover, though,
in principle, most of these programs require matching fund from the local
governments, the role of local governments is restricted to providing funding.
So they are not given opportunities to participate in program selection or
management. As result, regional innovation programs are facing various
issues like lack of strategic allocation of resources to local governments' innovation programs, difficulty in coordinating and managing programs that
are being implemented at regional level, and overlaps in evaluation.
To resolve these issues, this study attempts to present a new budget
management system that can enhance regional self-supportive innovation
capabilities and improve regional innovation performance. This new budget
system is aimed at improving the performance of regional innovation
programs by developing key regional innovation players’ capabilities to
manage innovation performance.
