SAIGA's Skills Transfer & Educational Programmes STEPSTM REVENUE, EXPENDITURE, ASSETS & LIABILITIES COURSE (REAL) Course Facts Background and topics covered * Please also read the fact sheet of the Foundation Course of the Public Finance Management Programme. The Public Finance and Management Act (PFM Act) regulates financial management at national and provincial level. The PFM Act also embraces constitutional institutions, public entities, national and provincial government business enterprises as well as entities under their ownership control. The PFM Act provides the framework for a paradigm shift from financial administration to financial management. The REAL-concept is introduced in the Public Finance Management Act and refers to Revenue, Expenditure, Assets and Liabilities. The Treasury Regulations identify amongst others the following areas of management (alphabetical) Asset Management Cash Management Debtor Management Expenditure Management Management of commitments, liabilities and contingencies Management of the budget process Project Management Revenue Management Strategic plans This Module deals with the above management concepts. A two-way approach is followed. The statutory prescribed norms and standards (including instructions) are dealt with as well as generally accepted best practice with regard to the relevant concepts. Hereby course participants are empowered to vary their management techniques and styles whilst staying within prescribed and allowed limits determined by legislation. Due to the emphasis the Public Finance Management Act places on measuring efficiency and effectiveness, the concept of costing becomes more important. The course therefore also deals with the following: Elements of costing The Activity Based Costing Approach (ABC) Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) Cost-Effectiveness Study (CES) Activity Based Budgeting (ABB) in the public sector Emphasis is also placed on processes which need to be managed: Strategic planning Procurement Decision making Managing Revenue, Expenditure, Assets & Liabilities (REAL) The course is specifically designed from a public sector perspective and strikes a balance between management skills and the conceptual knowledge required to understand these concepts. Case Studies form an integral part of the learning experience. Group size is limited to enable optimal interaction, participation and maximum retention of knowledge and skills. Course participants have to bring along their financial calculators as these will be used in certain case studies. Participants receive detailed complimentary notes to facilitate continued learning even after the course itself has ended. Participants have to bring along financial calculators to enable them to do certain practical examples in class. All office bearers who have to deal with or who are responsible for REAL management will benefit greatly from attending this Module.
