Media Alert

The MEC for Finance, Ms Motlalepula Rosho, will in compliance with the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) Section 38(1)(f) (Act No. 1 of 1999), launch the 30-Day Payment Awareness Campaign, as an intervention to fast-track payments of outstanding supplier invoices by provincial departments and their entities. The PFMA requires the accounting officer for a department to settle all contractual obligations and pay all money owing, including intergovernmental claims, within the prescribed or agreed period.
“Departments and their entities are not fully compliant to the prescribed 30 days-payment and this is adversely impacting on the sustainability of the suppliers’ businesses, hence the need for this campaign” MEC Rosho said. This campaign is in support of Treasury Regulation 8.2.3, which provides that “unless determined otherwise in a contract or other agreement, all payments due to creditors must be settled within 30 days from receipt of an invoice or, in the case of civil claims, from the date of settlement or court judgment.”
