In addition, data validation techniques are carried out through data triangulation, an extension of observations, the addition of references, and focus group discussion. The results showed that seeing from the planning aspect, especially at the stage of drafting the regional budget plan, is not optimal. It is found that the aspirations of the community have not been well captured. From the aspect of implementation, it is considered less than optimal due to the lack of budget and the seriousness of the Regional House of Representatives to carry out supervision of the determined regional budget. Meanwhile, the aspect of supervision of the Regional House of Representatives is still lacking, especially supervision of the performance of government administration in the management of the regional budget in Buol Regency. This study suggests that the supervisory function of the Regional House of Representatives should be optimized, especially in the management of the regional budget in Buol Regency.
