Appendix B NATIONAL TREASURY / IPFA SURVEY OF TRAINING PRIORITIES
Introduction The National Treasury has commissioned the Institute for Public Finance and Auditing to assist in identifying the focus areas for financial training over the next few years. In 1998, IPFA and the Department of State Expenditure jointly undertook a major exercise to define appropriate levels of competence for government finance staff. The results of this work were used as the basis for designing the IPFA qualifications that have been registered with SAQA. However, the survey did not identify precisely the ‘gaps’ between this ideal state and the current levels of competence of existing staff. The passing of the Public Finance Management Act presents a major challenge for those working in government finance, and the National Treasury wants to provide comprehensive assistance to those responsible for implementation. One aspect of this support will be to align training initiatives with the priorities dictated by the Act, and to ensure that such initiatives address any current gaps. You have been selected to help resolve these issues and to determine the future training priorities by providing data about yourself and your job. IPFA will be most grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire and return it to your departmental accountant / financial manager before 12 January 2001. Your responses will be used – anonymously – to analyse training needs, and to assist training providers in prioritising future programmes, to the benefit of the whole of government. Please answer all sections as clearly and honestly as possible. Should you have any queries, please contact Zahra Cassim at IPFA (012 348 2913).
