The implication of noncompliance with Treasury's competency requirements
MetadataShow full item record
In 2007, in response to capacity constraints bedeviling local government, the National Treasury issued regulations setting out minimum competency requirements which all municipal financial and supply chain management officials have to meet. The regulations took effect on 1 January 2008, but gave a five year period of grace within which all financial and supply chain management officials throughout the country were required to attain the minimum competency levels. For these officials, the countdown reaches zero on 1 January 2013. Against this background, this article seeks to explore the potential implications flowing from the non-compliance with these minimum competency requirements.
