Spain/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.3 Allocation of public funds

There is no legislation for the allocation of public funds for culture. This is a matter decided by the current Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.

The 257/2012 Royal Decree establishes that the Sub-Secretariat of Education, Culture and Sport is responsible for producing and processing the annual draft report of the departmental budget, determining the structure of the programmes and sub-programmes that specify the department's activities, coordinating the preparation of the budgets of public institutions and their consolidation with those of the department, analysing and processing modifications, and monitoring the budget. 6/1997 Act lays down that the General Administration of the State, and therefore the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, is responsible for the effective allocation and use of public resources, and for the control of management and the results.
