The study also adopted a case study research design and both qualitative and quantitative approaches of data collection and analysis were used. Simple random sampling and purposive sampling criterion were also used to obtain a suitable sample size for the study. The data collected was coded and analyzed using SPSS. Data collected and analyzed on the various objectives of the study revealed that budget planning had a weak positive correlation with organizational performance, budget implementation has a moderate but positive correlation with organizational performance and also revealed that budget monitoring has a strong positive correlation with organizational performance. Hence to answer the first objective, the study revealed that budget planning contributes 13.9%of the changes in organizational performance, secondly the study revealed that budget implementation contributes 44.2% of the changes in organizational performance and thirdly, the study revealed that budget monitoring contributes 50.1% of the changes in organizational performance. Hence basing on the findings, the study revealed that budgetary controls contribute 47.9% of the changes in organizational performance. Therefore, in conclusion the study revealed that budgetary controls have a moderate positive effect on organizational performance of public parastatals. Lastly, from the findings of the study, the researcher on budget planning recommended that goals set by all managers and issues raised by key stakeholders should all be taken care of by management by crosschecking with the newly proposed solutions to confirm that they have all been taken care of in the next budget planning stage and that goals should be within one year but slightly hard to achieve, secondly on budget implementation, the researcher recommended that management should set up independent budget monitoring teams to crosscheck and verify reports made by the existing budget monitoring teams on monthly basis. On budget monitoring the researcher recommended that budget reviews should be done every three months while involving the staff who. prepared these reports themselves to provide summaries of issues they feel should not miss while devising solutions in the next annual budget planning process.
