Areas of low performance for operating expenditure are: -Employee Related Costs – 94.72% of R11.05 bil budget, ie R583 mil under. (CoCT R472 mil) -Bulk purchases (89.01% of R8.81 billion) due to accrual accounting. -Transfers and grants (76.49% of R350 million).
OVERALL SUMMARY FOR WC: CAPITAL Many municipalities however indicated that the capital expenditure will increase with the finalisation of the year-end procedures and outstanding transactions. The main reason provided for the under spending of the capital budget is mainly due to delays in environmental impact assessment, procurement challenges and funding.
OVERALL SUMMARY – WC: CASH FLOWS Aggregated Cash flows from Operations is positive at R4.49 bil (biggest from CoCT) and below the YTD budget. Aggregated Cash flows from Investing is negative at R4.80 bil as capital payments (Capex) exceeded receipts from disposals, debtors, investments. Cash from Financing also positive (pmnts < receipts) meaning repayment of borrowings less than new borrowings (ST or LT) and is below budget or planning. This can be attributed to most municipalities delay the take of borrowing to save finance costs. All municipalities reported positive cash balances except 2, however some municipalities with positive balances have commitments against it (e.g. grants and creditors outstanding).
OVERALL SUMMARY - WC: DEBTORS & CREDITORS The total outstanding debtors for more than 90 days amounts to R5.53 billion and it equates to 69.3 per cent (69.4% at the end of May 2013) of the total aggregated outstanding debtors. Overdue Creditors are being monitored but mainly consist of disputes and queries. An Area of concern is where muni defaulted on an arrangement with Eskom and is R15.8 million in arrears.
