Savings @ Work: Government Spending Reviews Conference
The Savings @ Work: Government Spending Reviews Conference is an opportunity for all officials who have been a part of the various capacity building initiatives offered on the Spending Review methodology to share insights from their spending reviews. It will also provide a platform to discuss similar challenges and showcase some of the innovative solutions. This virtual platform to execute the conference will serve to share the most recent work and strengthen networks among the budget analysts at the coal face of budget and service delivery.
The Savings @ Work conference will also serve as a platform to reflect on the impact and consequences of the 40 technical spending reviews completed in National Treasury between 2013 and 2017. A significant component of the conference will focus on the processes around the institutionalization of spending reviews.
Lastly, the conference looks to strengthen collaborations among Provincial Treasuries themselves, as well as between National Treasury, line departments and Provincial Treasuries. It is clear that most provinces share similar challenges and ground-breaking solutions can be shared widely using such a platform.
