Appropriation Bill 2021 - Budget Vote 3: Provincial Treasury
Today, Minister Maynier tabled the Main Appropriation of Vote 3: Provincial Treasury, which allocates R319.608 million in 2021/22 to deliver on four strategic objectives:
- Integrated Provincial Governance;
- Efficient Infrastructure Investment;
- Strategic Supply Chain Management; and
- Effective Local Governance.
Provincial Treasury is leading from the front to strengthen governance in the Western Cape.
Our Fiscal Futures project will look over the horizon and determine the best options available to maintain the long-term fiscal sustainability of the Western Cape Government.
Provincial Treasury is leading from the front to support the preparation of infrastructure projects in the Western Cape.
The Project Preparation Facility will assist departments and public entities with project preparation costs to create a pipeline of infrastructure projects.
We have allocated R23.8 million over the medium term for the first tranche of infrastructure projects and Provincial Treasury will issue guidelines for further applications to the new Project Preparation Facility in 2021/22.
And Provincial Treasury is leading from the front in strategic supply chain management in the Western Cape.
We have allocated R2 million to improve our e-procurement solution, bringing it in-house and integrating it with the National Treasury Central Supplier Database and the Western Cape Supplier Evidence Bank, to make it easier for businesses, especially small businesses, to become government suppliers.
