Overspending Affects Service Delivery

A report commissioned by the government says overspending in the Free State will lead to cuts in services this financial year unless radical measures are taken

A report commissioned by the government says overspending in the Free State will lead to cuts in services this financial year unless radical measures are taken.

Blaming overspending on the cash-based reporting system, the report says unfunded mandates, such as the occupation-specific dispensation for public servants’ pay, are contributing to overspending in the Free State.

The report is part of a review commissioned by former health minister Barbara Hogan to investigate overspending and its findings may yet reflect a similar trend in other provinces. The report is part of a series that includes an assessment of the national and provincial departments.
