Abstract: The objective of this paper is to examine the role budgetary participation plays in the relationship between information asymmetry and budget satisfaction, under the effects of high and low task uncertainty. A random sample was picked out of 500 companies from both the public and private sectors in Singapore. Targeted respondents were lower level managers in charge of budgetary matters. Related studies have suggested that budgetary participation has a positive influence on the level of budget satisfaction experienced by managers. The results of this study support the hypothesis that budgetary participation enhances satisfaction but find no significant difference in the effect of budgetary participation in the information asymmetry/budget satisfaction relationship under the conditions of high and low task uncertainty. This implies that budgetary participation is a universal criterion for budget satisfaction.
