Definition: Bundling of objectives


Bundling of objectives occurs when a single type of benefit serves various distinct social risks or needs.

Bundling can also occur between social and other objectives. An example is a government transfer of resources to special schools for blind or deaf children. In such cases the part of the transfer financing the normal education function of the school (which is not reported as social protection under the ESSPROS) should be separate from the part that finances the adaptation of the tuition to the special circumstances of the disabled children (which is social protection expenditure).
