(2)(b) No, this cannot be considered as wasteful expenditure.

(3) Indeed the tool has achieved its objectives, management practices have improved across the public service. Through 40 case studies documented, departments have the opportunity to draw key lessons and improve their working environment. This maturity and institutionalisation is at a strong basis with which MPAT can move forward to measure capabilities and performance.
