Provincial Overview: 2012/13 MIG Expenditure
The Provincial expenditure is R923.513m (32.08%)
Of concern regarding the expenditure in the 2012/2013 financial year:
•
Late registration of projects to be implemented in the current financial
year. We still have municipalities registering projects.
•
Having projects earmarked for implementation in the current financial
year being advertised for procurement of consultant to do designs,
•
projects where tenders have closed and validity period expired,
requiring re-advertising.
•
Expenditures for municipalities with approved roll over very low,
