The junta has set up a committee to follow up on and scrutinise the spending of state budget.

The goal is to ensure the central budget is being spent cautiously and transparently in line with financial and fiscal discipline.

Lt Gen Anantaporn Kanchanarat, the army's comptroller, chairs the committee, which comprises experts such as the finance permanent secretary, auditor general, Bureau of Budget director, among others.

It will focus on the effectiveness of each project relative to its costs and public benefits, and decide whether it is in line with the national economic and social development plan.

"As it is now, approval is made by the cabinet with no panel to screen the projects," said Col Winthai Suwaree, deputy spokesperson of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

The National Anti-Corruption Commission and the Auditor General's Office will continue to examine procurements like before.
