1 1 Provincial Budgets and Expenditure Review 2001/02 – 2007/08 15 September 2005

2 2 Prov. Budget and Exp Review (1) Unlike previous reviews, focuses only on provincial finances and performance –Scope of LG has grown substantially over the years and warrants a separate review –Difference in municipal and provincial/national financial years –LG to be published immediately after the LG elections In time for use by new political office bearers

3 3 Prov. Budget and Exp Review (2) Provincial budgets, expenditure and service delivery trends –Builds on the 2004 Trends in Intergov. Finances –Covers past and future budgets (2001/02 to 2007/08) –Provides consolidated information –Allows comparison between provinces –Critical document to inform on service delivery Released before 1½ months MTBPS –Assist shaping the 2006 Budget and MinMecs Inform policy priorities Guide provincial EXCOs in budget preparation

4 4 Prov. Budget and Exp Review (3) Importance for portfolio and select committees –Coincides with the tabling of annual reports and thus informs the service delivery debate Are targets set in strategic plans achieved? Are we getting value for money? Broadened access and quality of services? What are the service delivery challenges? Remedies? Do we have data to measure service delivery performance? –Platform for accounting officers to account –Foster good governance and transparency Report to external stakeholders on government performance –Policy analysts, Public, etc

5 5 Prov. Budget and Exp Review (4) 9 chapters in the document –Introduction –Education –Health –Social Development –Housing –Agriculture and Land –Roads and Transport –Personnel –Trends in Provincial Budgets Annexure A: –Extensive financial information

6 6 Intergovernmental Fiscal System (1) 3 spheres of government –Independent, interrelated and based on principles of cooperative governance All with different functions (exclusive and concurrent) Provinces and municipalities have key service delivery responsibilities Provinces and municipalities implement pro-poor programmes Continued need for provinces and municipalities to improve their service delivery capacity

7 7 Intergovernmental Fiscal System (2) Key concurrent functions –School education, health, social welfare and housing Policy formulation and setting of norms and standards a national competence Implementation mainly at provincial level –Coordination challenges that arise Is there alignment between provincial budgets and national policy priorities? –The Review highlights how each of these concurrent functions are structured Which sphere is responsible for what

8 8 Intergovernmental Fiscal System (3) Revenue sharing arrangement –Vertical Division of Revenue Between the 3 spheres Informed by assigned service delivery responsibility and revenue raising capacity of each sphere Based on governments policy priorities –Horizontal Division of Revenue Among the 9 provinces –Division of Revenue Bill Reflects the vertical and horizontal DOR –Culmination of an extensive intergovernmental consultative process Approved by both houses of Parliament/NCOP

9 9 Intergovernmental Fiscal System (4) Vertical Division of Revenue

10 10 Intergovernmental Fiscal System (5) Funding of Provinces Provinces determine own budgets guided by national policy priorities –National transfers (97 per cent) the largest share of provincial revenue Own revenue (3 per cent) –Equitable share 65,4 per cent of national transfers Unconditional transfer Provinces have discretion on how to allocate based on government priority Main source of funding for social services –Conditional grants 34,6 per cent of national transfers Social assistance grant payments reason for large conditional grant share Health conditional grants second largest share Performance and evolution of conditional grants need thorough review

11 11 Provincial Budgets and Expenditure Review: 2001/02 – 2007/08 Chapter 9: Trends in Provincial Budgets

12 12 Chapter Outline Introduction Provincial Revenue Trends –National transfers to provinces Provincial equitable share Conditional grants –Provincial own revenue Provincial Expenditure Trends –Social services spending –Non-social services spending –Personnel expenditure –Payments for capital assets Conclusion

13 13 Introduction SAs Intergovernmental System places provinces at the epicentre of governments delivering programme Concurrent functions such as: –School Education –Health –Social Welfare Services –Housing Social Services are approximately 82 per cent of total provincial spending Non-social services includes: –Agricultural support to farmers –Construction & maintenance of provincial roads –Provincial administrations & governance functions Delivery of social services continues to be a pillar of governments transformation agenda Improved & expanded social service delivery linked to strong economy Budget has become key instrument of co-operative governance

14 14 Provincial Revenue Trends National transfers are the largest source of funding for services provided by provinces –Equitable share & conditional grants The change in the financing mechanism for social security grants impacts on the analysis in this Review Provincial share of nationally raised revenue above 96 per cent Equitable share largest share of national transfers – 64 per cent –Grows at 4 per cent per year in real terms over the MTEF –Government continues to prioritize social services funded through ES The type and number of Conditional Grants reflect the evolution of the intergovernmental fiscal system –Three types: Recurrent, capital and transitional and capacity building –As system matures, transitional and capacity building grants will be phased out –The increase CG transfers mainly due to social security grants

15 15 Provincial Revenue Trends

16 16 Provincial Revenue Trends

17 17 Provincial Revenue Trends: Own Revenue 2,7 per cent of total revenue in 2005/06 declining marginally to 2,5 per cent in 2007/08 Budgeted at R5,9 billion in 2005/06, R6,1 billion in 2006/07 and R6,4 billion in 2007/08 Average annual growth rate of 0,9 per cent between 2004/05 and 2007/08 Provinces tend to understate their own revenue forecasts - declines from the 2004/05 preliminary outcomes of R6,3 billion to R5,9 billion (5,7 per cent) Own revenue is made up of tax receipts (casino taxes, horse racing taxes, liquor licences and motor vehicle licences), non-tax receipts, transfers received, sale of capital assets and other own revenue collected Motor vehicle licence fees are the biggest source of revenue - 41,6 per cent 2004/05, and is set to rise further to 48,3 per cent by 2007/08 The drop in non-tax revenue is due to sharp decline in interest revenue

18 18 Provincial Revenue Trends: Own Revenue

19 19 Provincial Expenditure Trends Between 2001/02 and 2004/05, expenditure has grown from R122,7 billion to R188,9 billion: a real growth rate of 8,4 per cent a year Budgeted to spend R213,8 billion in 2005/06 (nominal growth of 13,2 per cent, real growth of 8,6 per cent from 2004/05 outcome) Over the MTEF, increase to R253,6 billion in 2007/08 at an average annual growth of 10,3 per cent or 5,1 per cent faster than inflation Capital spending sustains its upward growth path (9,5 per cent average annual over the MTEF) Social development one of the fastest expenditure growing items in provinces Provincial spending trends vary between provinces Provinces must continue to maintain healthy balances between revenue streams and expenditure

20 20 Provincial Expenditure Trends

21 21 Social Services Spending Social services spending makes up the bulk of provincial expenditure – approximately 82 per cent This includes Education, Health and Social Development Grew by 8,8 per cent in real terms over the period 2001/02 to 2004/05 Over the MTEF, expected to grow by a further 4,6 per cent in real terms Spending doubles over the seven-year period from R100,4 billion in 2001/02 to R206 billion by 2007/08 Bulk of social services goes to programmes targeted at poor persons and households to improve the quality of life for South Africans The more rural, poorer provinces share in social services spending is higher than urban provinces Significant changes in the composition of social services are evident, e.g. Social security grants

22 22 Social Services Spending

23 23 Social Services Spending

24 24 Non-Social Services Spending Include, among others, public works, roads and transport, housing and local government, agriculture, sport and environmental affairs Approximately 18 per cent of total provincial expenditure Economic functions delivered are very important for economic growth and job creation Grew at an average annual rate of 13,8 per cent between 2001/02 and 2004/05 Slowing down slightly but the strong recovery continues through 2007/08 The strong growth will strengthen programmes such as: –The new housing strategy –The comprehensive agricultural support programme (CASP) –The expanded public works programme Doubles between 2001/02 and 2007/08 from R22,3 billion to R45,9 billion Contribution towards stimulating economic growth, creating employment opportunities and reducing poverty

25 25 Personnel Expenditure Success of containment of personnel costs to acceptable and sustainable levels - from 55,2 per cent (2001/02) to 46,5 per cent in 2004/05 and to 43,6 per cent by 2007/08 Provincial education and health departments employ over 658 000 personnel –Largest contributor is education (R57,5 billion or 59,4 per cent of total provincial personnel spending in 2005/06) –Education grows by 7,5 per cent from 2004/05 to 2005/06, 7,1 per cent in 2006/07 and 6,8 per cent in 2007/08 –Health is at R25,8 billion or 26,7 per cent in 2005/06 –Slight decline in Health growing by 10,8 per cent in 2005/06, 7,7 per cent in 2006/07 and 5,9 per cent in 2007/08 Personnel spending growth is still well above inflation Over 65 per cent of total provincial personnel spending is concentrated in four provinces (KZN, EC, GT, LIM)

26 26 Personnel Expenditure

27 27 Payments for Capital Assets Includes spending on construction, rehabilitation of buildings, roads and other immovable assets Excludes spending on housing subsidy (capital transfer) – NERF Grew robustly between 2001/02 and 2004/05, at an average annual rate of 18,6 per cent Rising at an average annual rate of 15 per cent from R11,9 billion in 2005/06 to R13,9 billion in 2006/07 and R15,3 billion in 2007/08 over the MTEF 36 per cent of capital spending is on roads and transport followed by Health (29,4%) & Education (24,1%) Preliminary capital spending outcomes (2004/05) show R1,8 billion underspending in provinces – present some challenges The infrastructure delivery improvement programme (IDIP) aims to make infrastructure delivery more efficient and effective

28 28 Payments for Capital Assets

29 29 Conclusion Provincial spending continues to grow in real terms Social Development fastest growing item over the last three years and continue to rise rapidly over the MTEF Growth (SD) has no impact on other spending – robust growth in education, health and infrastructure Strong growth in capital expenditure – nearly triples over seven- year period –Positive contribution to economic growth and employment creation –However, underspending in 2004/05 indicates capacity constraints that inhibit certain sectors from delivering infrastructure in line with the resources available –The infrastructure delivery improvement programme (IDIP) aims to make infrastructure delivery more efficient and effective Detail analysis is presented in preceding chapters for school education, health, social development, agriculture, housing and roads and transport and personnel

41 41 Education performance (1) Relative to inputs, outputs and quality of education remain a concern Trends in matriculation results suggests improved quality and reduced inefficiencies: –Between 1999 and 2003 numbers writing exam declined from 511 474 to 440 267 - increasing to 467 985 in 2004 (actual numbers passing the exam increased from 249 831 in 1999 to 330 717 in 2004) –Matriculation pass rate improved from below 50% in 1997 to 73,2% in 2003. Slight drop to 70,7% in 2004. –Growing trends in passes in maths and science

42 42 Except for North West, increase in number of endorsements. Sharp increases in LIM, FS and NC Education performance (2)

43 43 Education performance (3)

44 44 Education performance (4)

45 45 Education performance (5) Key issues for discussion Are matric results the only yardstick for performance? –Recent standardised international tests show South Africa as a weak performer –2001/02 Systemic evaluation (Grade 3) showed poor numeracy and literacy skills of learners Can progress be measured? Data problems? –Quality and availability of data a great concern Key challenges remain -need to improve the quality of education -need to achieve better outcomes

46 46 Provincial Budgets and Expenditure Review: 2001/02 – 2007/08 Chapter 3: Health

47 47 Summary This Chapter: Provides an overview of health funding in the public sector context. Reviews key policy & sectoral developments. Examines overall expenditure trends. Focuses on expenditure & service delivery trends in key service delivery areas. Focuses briefly on aspects of personnel in the sector.

48 48 Key trends Real budget growth exceeds 4% per annum Improving equity Primary health care, emergency ambulance and HIV and AIDS programme funding growing strongly Capital and NPNC expenditure significant real growth Under-spending on capital and conditional grants Professional personnel increased by 2605 after scarce skills and rural allowance Weaknesses in sectoral non-financial information

49 49 The Public Sector Context: Total Health Funding in South Africa There are large differentials between private and public spending. Nearly 60% of health funding goes towards funding private health care, while only the wealthiest 15% are insured. Only 40% of health funding goes towards the majority of the population

50 50

51 51 Public Health Sector Funding in Middle Income Countries South Africas total health expenditure as a proportion of GDP is relatively high Public sector funding at 3.4% of GDP compares favourably Influenced by large private health sector, escalating wage costs and the growing burden associated with HIV / Aids

52 52 Health funding flows 2004/05

53 53 Provincial health expenditure, 2001/02 to 2007/08

54 54 Between 2001/02 –2004/05 growth exceeded 15% annually in Northern Cape, Mpumalanga, North West & Limpopo, implying that basic health services were significantly strengthened. The medium term sees growth in all provinces, with growth above 11% in KZN, Eastern Cape & Northern Cape. KZN now has the largest provincial health budget. The 20.3% per capita increase in Limpopos budgets in 2005/06 helps to close the spending gap. Provincial health expenditure, 2001/02 to 2007/08

55 55 Primary health care per capita spending trends Substantive increase in PHC from 2001/02 (R121) to 2005/06 (R207) reflects national policy of improving access and support lower levels of care. Significant expenditure growth, though large disparities still exist. Department of Health has set PHC utilisation target at 3.85 visits per year for uninsured persons.

56 56 Provincial emergency medical services expenditure, 2001/02 to 2007/08 Funding for EMS grows strongly to R1.7billion in 2005/06. Unit costs vary significantly among provinces due to problems in information systems, population density, distances and variations in staffing models.

57 57 Provincial HIV and Aids expenditure, 2001/02 to 2007/08 Provinces have budgeted R1.7 billion in 2005/06 for specific interventions. AIDS treatment programmes have been initiated in all 53 health districts, 42 367 people on treatment by December 2004 Widespread rollout of voluntary counseling and testing (427 sites in 2002 to 3369 in 2004) and Mother-child prevention programmes. Male condoms distributed increased from 150 million in 1998 to 360 million in 2004

58 58 Revitalisation hospitals close to completion Need higher quality project business & implementation plans. Strengthening national programme unit & provincial departments through the infrastructure development improvement programme.

59 59 Trends in scarce health professionals

60 60 Personnel per 100 000 population

61 61 Trends in scarce health professionals Professional personnel numbers rose (2605 employees), suggesting improving stability Increases noted in pharmacists (27.9%), dieticians (15.1%), speech therapists (18.6%) & physiotherapists (9.1%). While number of doctors did not increase, redistribution noted among provinces, following rural allowance strategy. While progress is noted, the lack of skilled personnel in rural areas remains a problem. Access to personnel varies considerably across provinces.

62 62 Conclusion 2005 / 2006 budget showed 8.6% real growth. Key emphasis on strengthening primary health care and implementing the district health system, expanding programmes to counter HIV / AIDS, and revitalising health infrastructure. Ambulance budget & goods and services (NPNC) continue to improve. Greater attention to hospital budgets, Modernisation of Tertiary services and improving staffing levels required in future budgets Publishing and disseminating health information needs to be improved.

63 63 Provincial Budgets and Expenditure Review: 2001/02 – 2007/08 Chapter 4: Social Development

64 64 What does Social Development Chapter Address? Key developments in social development sector Provincial social development expenditure Expenditure by economic classification and by programme Preliminary outcome for 2004/05 Conditional grant funding Personnel expenditure and numbers Social assistance transfers Social assistance compensation of employees Social welfare services, developmental support services and populations trends Conclusion

65 65 Key developments in Social Development Sector Pages 48 and 49 address: Social Assistance Function shift from provinces to national government –Social Assistance Act, 2004 Establishment of South African Social Security Agency –South African Social Security Agency Act,2004 Reforming of social welfare services, administration and financing –Child Justice Bill, 2002 –Childrens Bill, 2003 –Older Persons Bill, 2003

66 66 Provincial social development expenditure trends Table 4.1 shows from page 49 –Overall expenditure more than doubled over 3years from R23,8 billion in 2001/02 to R51 billion in 2004/05 –An annual growth of 28,8 per cent or nearly 21 per cent in real terms –Growth in expenditure mainly driven by increasing beneficiary numbers in child support and disability grants –All provinces experience very high growth rates from 21,3 per cent in Western Cape and 33,3 per cent in Free State

67 67 Provincial social development expenditure trends (cont.) expenditure in social development is expected to moderate between 2004/05 and 2007/08 due to: –Phasing of extension of child support grants to 14 years to be completed by end of 2005/06 –Disability grants almost at full coverage –Improvements within the administration, especially key initiatives to address weaknesses in disability grant processes and procedures –Expenditure is however, expected to exceed R70 billion by 2007/08 –Provides a strong growth of nearly 12 per cent per year or 6.4 per cent in real terms –Rapid growth in provincial social development expenditure – rose to 26.9 per cent of overall provincial budgets in 2004/05 –Set to increase to nearly 28 per cent in 2007/08

68 68 Expenditure by economic classification Expenditure by economic classification consists of (pages 50-51 and Table 4.2): –Compensation of employees –Other current payments –Transfers and subsidies (mostly social assistance transfers) –Payment of capital assets Highest proportion of social development expenditure on social assistance grants which increases from 86.5 per cent (2001/02) to 88.5 per cent (2004/05) with slight decline to 87.6 per cent (2007/08) Compensation of employees is expected to grow at 17.5 per cent a year –Driven by improved capacity for services and re-grading of social workers salaries –Also increase in both personnel numbers and average remuneration (also see Table 4.6) Other current expenditure grows by 13.2 per cent a year Non-grant transfers and subsidies (not-for- profit organisations) set to grow by 14.3 per cent

69 69

70 70 Expenditure by Programme Social development programmes consist of (page 51 to 52 and Table 4.3): –Administration –Social assistance –Social welfare services –Development and support services –Population development trends Greater expenditure on social assistance transfers than any other programme Generally higher growth in expenditure on administrative capacity than on welfare services growing from R1,6 billion (2001/02) to R2,1 billion in 2004/05 Much of growth in expenditure on social welfare services is for salaries of social workers Average annual growth in administration at nearly 30 per cent 37 per cent growth in development and support reflects the conditional grant funding introduced for food relief programme in 2003/04 Social welfare services programme grew at about 2.4 per cent in real terms or 9 per cent in nominal terms (around R2 billion in 2004/05) Growth further accelerates in social welfare services to nearly 12 per cent per year and in population development and support services to 28.1 per cent between 2004/05 to 2007/08

71 71 Preliminary Outcome for 2004/05 Preliminary outcome on page 52 and Table 4.4. Adjustment of approximately R3,3 billion to provincial budgets on 2004/05 budgets Adjustments to address unexpected growth in disability grants Resulted in moderate over expenditure of R135 million Over expenditure in KZN and Eastern Cape Over expenditure mainly due to: –Growing numbers in beneficiaries –High average grant payments related to delays in processing of grants –Costs of back pay to beneficiaries

72 72 Conditional Grants Funding Before 2004/05 the bulk of social development expenditure was funded by the equitable share allocations Conditional grants in social development are: –Food Relief –Home and Community Based Care (HIV and Aids) –Extension of the Child Support Grants (until 2004/05) From 2005/06 the bulk of social development expenditure funded by conditional grants (see Table 4.5) –Social assistance Transfers – R52 billion (2005/06); R57billion (2006/07) and R61,8 (2007/08) –Social Assistance Administration – R3,3 billion (2005/06); R3,5 billion (2006/07) and R3,7 billion (2007/08) –Integrated social development services grant – R338 million (2005/06); R411million (2006/07) and R432 million (2007/08) –HIV and Aids - R138 million (2005/06); R139 million (2006/07) and R143 million (2007/08) Consolidated in conditional grants expenditure at R55,9 billion (2005/06); R61,2 billion (2006/07) and R66,1 (2007/08)

73 73 Personnel expenditure and numbers Personnel expenditure and numbers are covered on page 53 to 54 and in Table 4.6 –Personnel expenditure grew at an annual average rate of 15.9 per cent –Over the period from 2004/05 to 2007/08 personnel expenditure is projected to grow by an annual average of 17.5 per cent –Rapid growth in personnel expenditure driven by: strong growth in personnel numbers Increases in average remuneration Re-grading of social workers

74 74 Social assistance transfers Social assistance transfers expenditure – covered in pages 55 to 62 and in Tables 4.7 to 4.16 –Values of grants covered in Table 4.7 –Social grants expenditure by grant type and by province in Table 4.8 –Social assistance expenditure as a % of total social development expenditure – Table 4.9 –Social grants as a percentage of GDP in Table 4.10 –Social grants beneficiary numbers by grant type and provinces – Table 4.11 –Pensions to older persons (SOAP and WV) – Table 4.12 –Disability grant numbers and expenditure – Table 4.13 –Care dependency grant numbers and expenditure – Table 4.14 –Child support grant numbers and expenditure in Table 4.15 –Foster care expenditure and numbers – Table 4.16

75 75 Social Assistance Transfer (cont.) Social assistance transfers covered in the pages show: –Social grants represents about 90 per cent of total social development expenditure –Beneficiary numbers grew from 3,6 million in April 2001 to 9,4 million in April 2005 –Growth reflected over this period: Old Age at 2.8 per cent Disability at 20.1 per cent Foster care at 31.4 per cent Care dependency at 31.3 per cent Child support grants at 55,1 per cent

76 76

77 77 Compensation of employees in social assistance programme See also page 62 and Table 4.17 –Doubling of expenditure on compensation of employees within this programme –Expenditure on compensation of employees indicates Strengthening of provincial capacity Appointment of permanent staff Utilization of contract staff

78 78 Social welfare services and other programmes See pages 63 to 65 and Tables 4.18 and 4.19 –Social welfare services expenditure –Number and level of social workers Social welfare expenditure Table reflects expenditure by subprogramme and by province Subprogrammes in this programme are: –Administration –Treatment and Prevention of substance Abuse –Care of the Aged –Crime prevention, rehabilitation and victim empowerment –Services to the Disabled –Child and youth care and protection Most other social development services provided by social workers and probation officers Growth in social welfare services shows a progressive shift towards welfare and development support expenditure Major share of expenditure in development support programmes – HIV and Aids and poverty alleviation programmes

79 79 Conclusion Recent years massive expansion in provincial social development budgets Real poverty orientated budget, especially to provide income transfers to poor and vulnerable individuals and households However, exponential growth in social development expenditure has put severe pressures on other provincial expenditure responsibilities Far reaching initiatives within social development sector: –Centralization of social assistance function –Establishment of social security agency –Designing and finalization of the social welfare service delivery model
