This research proposes to evaluate the quality of planning and implementation of government policies on the quality of life of Acehnese and analyze the realization quality of the use of regional budgets in the Aceh Province. This research method uses exploratory research approach with descriptive qualitative analysis. The data analyzed in this study are secondary data taken from the 2017 Provincial Government Accountability Report of Aceh Province and the Aceh Medium Term Development Plan (RPJMA) document for the period 2012 to 2017. The Indicator of Community Quality of Life used in this study is the access to employment, growing the community economy and education. The results of this study indicate that the quality of planning and implementation of the Aceh government policies on Acehneses’ quality of life is insufficient. There is a lack of departure between the provincial and district/city level planning as the commitment of local government organizers in its implementation is still low. There are programs implemented out of the planning documents. Those show an inconsistency between the budget planning and realization, where realization is higher than planning.
