1.1 The Portfolio Committee on Education, Sport and Culture undertook
a review of the 2006 half-year budget performance for the Ministry
of Higher and Tertiary Education. The purpose of the review was
to ensure accountability in the use of public funds, identify any
challenges faced by the Ministry and make recommendations for improvement.
The monitoring of the budget performance is in line with the budget
process and it also enhances the representative role of the Members
. . .
6.1 Cognisant of the challenges faced by the Ministry during the
first half of the 2006 financial year the Committee makes the following
- The Ministry
of Finance should ensure that funds allocated to Ministries are
released timeously in order to hedge against inflation.
- The Committee
commends the income generating projects at various colleges and
strongly recommends that this innovative solution to augment funds
from the fiscus be introduced at all Tertiary institutions.
- The introduction
of parallel programmes at NUST and Midlands
State University is highly commendable and the Committee recommends
that other Universities introduce parallel programmes in order
to generate extra income instead of relying on the fiscus.
7.1 The Committee appreciates the cooperation that it received from
the Ministry and is hopeful that the Ministry will overcome its
challenges and fulfil its mandate.
