Welcome to the Free State Provincial Supply Chain Management Best Practise Toolkit
The aims and objective of the Toolkit are to:
- provide a systematic and uniform approach to supply chain management covering all the elements of supply chain management.
- provide a documented body of knowledge, processes and forms that represent generally recognised best practices in SCM for institutions to implement and/or benchmark against;
- target users from both PFMA and MFMA;
- provide “how to” guidelines for conducting supply chain management activities including providing forms which underpin each process;
- improve compliance to reporting requirements;
- train and induct officials (given the recent high influx of new entrants) on the actual content and system;
- assist provincial institutions with achieving the 2014 (and beyond) clean audit objective, as it was realised that most audit findings emanate from non-compliance with SCM processes;
- provide non-SCM practitioners (CFOs, Accounting Officers, MECs, etc.) with an overview of SCM processes in order to inform the decision making processes; and
- ensure training continuity with train-the-trainer program, which will translate to transfer of skills among SCM officials.
