Treasury ‘Wastes’ R1-billion on IT System

MPs in parliament’s standing committee on public accounts (Scopa) heard on Tuesday how the National Treasury’s Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) has cost the state with nothing to show for it.

The IFMS is a management tool for the public service and was meant to integrate human resource‚ payroll‚ financial and supply chain management functions. This was aimed at cutting costs.

The implementation of the project was done in two phases after failures during the first phase. Sita‚ as the state information technology agency‚ was to have led its implementation.

Trends in HIV Budgets in South Africa

A 14-page paper produced by the Centre for Economic Governance and AIDS in Africa (CEGAA), provides an analysis of trends in health, HIV and related areas of public spending.

Authors argue that national spending on HIV and AIDS in South Africa continues to show a strong public commitment to funding HIV, particularly given the rising allocations to HIV and AIDS within shrinking health budgets in real terms.

The authors also speculate that provinces are showing an increased ability to spend money efficiently.
