                 Budgetary observations
   By close of previous (2005) financial year over 98% had been spent
   Budgetary “crowding out” by social security transfers persists
   The Budget allocations for the remainder of the budget are in line with
    developmental outlook
   Ever increasing demand for services as a result of various social and
    economic challenges such as HIV and AIDS and migration however
    resources have not matched demand over the MTEF
   Administration budget including strategy and oversight is just under 0.2% of
    total budget
   Leakages due to fraud and corruption have been minimised beyond
    international norms, but there is room for improvement especially as it
    relates to Budgeting and supply chain management

Going forward the general service delivery challenge continues to be centred on
   poverty eradication. As many remain unable to access basic necessities, the
   Department will now consolidate all its efforts aimed at improving the Human and
   Social Capital capacity at a local and family level.
 This will require some changes with regards to functions and operations, which should see
   the Department:
     Consolidating and improving all transformation initiatives, whilst providing
       leadership in national strategic priorities on the eradication of poverty.
     Providing national leadership in policy development. Which will lead to a greater
       focus on the policy function and decentralisation of programme implementation.
     Reorganising, so as to improve the overall performance of the Department and
       its entities, so as to enable it to meet its mandate and emerge as a sector leader.
     Focusing its efforts on continuous improvement in internal business processes
       and systems so as to ensure effectiveness and efficiency
     Consolidating the social developmental approach.
     Strengthening the sector wide approach as expressed by the Social Sector
       Cluster of Governance.
