Strategic supply-chain management by Matatiele Municipality
Thesis (MPA (School of Public Management and Planning))--University of Stellenbosch, 2006.
The National Treasury of South Africa has recognised supply-chain management (SCM) as forming one of the key financial management reform focus areas. The SCM Regulations issued by the National Treasury are so new to local government that their particular relevance to the different municipalities is, as yet, unknown. The implications of the Regulations are being phased in over a 12-month period, giving municipalities the opportunity to draft, adopt, and implement their SCM policies. No guide or model therefore yet exists that can be adapted to suit Matatiele Municipality in its quest to implement all the components of SCM in order to improve service delivery.
