ATC090211: Report Budget Vote 10 for 2009/10

Public Service and Administration

Portfolio Committee on Public Service and Administration Report on Budget Vote 10 for 2009/10, as adopted on the 11 February 2009


The Portfolio Committee on Public Service and Administration received a briefing by the Public Service Commission (PSC) on Budget Vote 10 for 2009/10, on the 27th January 2009.


The PSC was allocated a total budget of R121 251 000, which is a 9% increase from its budget in 2008/09. The Budget is divided per programme as follows:


1.                   Administration: R60 913 000

2.                   Leadership and Management Practices: R16 434 000

3.                   Monitoring and Evaluation: R19 831 000

4.                   Integrity and Anti-Corruption: R24 073 000


The Portfolio Committee expressed concern that the increase in the Public Service Commission’s budget in less than the rate of headline inflation of 9.5%. This implies that the Public Service Commission will not be able to afford the same amount of goods and services as it did last year, whilst it is expected to provide more services and support to government and the national and provincial legislatures.




The Portfolio Committee recommends that:


1)                   The National Assembly adopts Vote 10 for 2009/10.

2)                   The Public Service Commission should submit its business plan for 2009/10 for further scrutiny to Parliament by July 2009.
