This paper measures Senegalese Government spending efficiency using a stochastic frontier model. Evidence is provided from a panel data analysis framework to compute technical inefficiency estimates for public spending in agriculture, roads, energy, education and health. Results show that the Government spending behavior in the road sector is almost identical to a neoclassic firm; i.e. inputs are not wasted in the production process. However, public output is affected by technical inefficiency in the remaining sectors. Output losses due to technical inefficiency are 9.7 tons of cereals in the agricultural sector, 19 megawatts of electric power, 21.8% in primary school completion rate and 2 years of life expectancy
