Medium Term Expenditure Estimates
- The budget allocation for CoE caters for current posts, and critical additional posts (In particular level 5-8 posts at the regions to ensure the recruitment of sufficient and appropriately skilled human capital for improved and more efficient service delivery.
- Awarding of the new 5 year contract to service provider Cash Paymaster Services, which caps the cost per grant at R16.50will assist in realising savings on this expenditure item.
- A specific ring-fenced allocation has been made available for the automation of the grant business process. The model aims to standardise a part of the application process by centralising the registry and decentralising the verification and approval of applications. This will introduce a substantial improvement to the turn around time of the application process and will aim to complete the application-to-approval process in one day.
- The budget allocation in this regard caters for the leasing of office accommodation including all the other related costs such as security services, cleaning service charges and maintenance and repairs. The allocation also includes the leasing of motor vehicles from the government garage, which forms part of the Agency’s fleet strategy. Furthermore, there are Information Technology related contracts such as contracts for the VPN connectivity, SITA contracts (for the SOCPEN) etc.
-As SASSA acquires new office accommodation, there is a need to install the necessary ICT connectivity to these premises. There is a specific allocation for this purpose.
