The Treasury has released 22 performance and expenditure reviews as requested persistently by DA finance spokesman David Maynier.
The reviews were conducted between 2013 and 2016.
Maynier had to resort to an application under the Promotion of Access to Information Act (Paia) to get the release of the reviews.
The reports have been published on the Government Technical Advisory Centre’s website (www.gtac.gov.za) and include reports on:
• the National Student Financial Aid Scheme;
• funding models for social housing;
• land restitution; and
• the National Skills Fund.
The aim of the reviews is to allow the Treasury to assess and improve the cost-effectiveness of public policy and budget planning.
Two reviews have not yet been released — the cost drivers in foreign missions; and comparative spending on provincial roads.
Maynier said in a statement that he would make a further Paia application to get these reports released.
