Public service reform

Building a public service that is professional, ethical and driven by merit is one of the main aims of the framework for the professionalisation of the public service.

The framework will help to ensure that only qualified and competent individuals are appointed to the ranks of the public service.

A number of reforms are under way to professionalise the public service.

The Public Service Amendment Bill and the Public Administration Laws General Amendment Bill are currently before Parliament.

The Presidency and National Treasury will also work together to rationalise government departments, entities and programmes over the next three years.

National Treasury estimates that we could achieve a potential saving of R27 billion in the medium term if we deal with overlapping mandates, close ineffective programmes and consolidate entities where appropriate.
