Transparency and ethics reigned supreme over shock revelations that more than R8.7m was paid -within three months- towards travel and subsistence claims by senior and middle managers. This has prompted an immediate reinforcement of cost containment measures. The said measures were implemented by National Treasury about two years ago, to ensure the prudent use of the fiscus in order to speed up service delivery. They were also informed by the shrinking economy and budget cuts across all spheres of government. However, what was previously brushed aside as sheer speculation, detonated like a bomb during the First Quarter Review meeting held in Rooigrond, Mafikeng...[Read]

With stakeholders drawn from all sectors in the built environment, government sought solicit and established public private partnerships, with the view to help fast-track infrastructure delivery in general, and capacitate government delivery arm of such infrastructure.``Let us all build the capacity of the state and not individuals...and also contribute to job creation,''...[Read]

By now, the law prescribes that government employees who are directors of companies conducting business with organs of the state should have already disclosed that fact and decided to: Either stop conducting business with the organ of state or resign as an employee. Alternatively, resign as a director of that company that conducts business with an organ of the state. The deadline to do so was end of February 2017.
