Hlengwa, Ms MD to ask the Minister in The Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities
Considering that the report of the Auditor-General of South Africa on her Office highlighted the severe challenge of underspending which was flagged across all the programmes in the portfolio of her Office, which indicates a clear lack of strategic planning, how will she capacitate the human resource division in her Office to strengthen overall work performance?
The Auditor-General of South Africa found that the underspending on Goods and Services in departmental Programmes was due to COVID-19 implications and not a lack of strategic planning or under-capacitated human resources. Given the suspension of all COVID-19 restrictions, the Department shall take all necessary measures to ensure that allocated funds are appropriately spent.
Approved by Minister
Ms M Nkoana-Mashabane, MP
