Don’t inflate staff needs, says Baloyi

2011-10-20 00:00

SOME KwaZulu-Natal government departments have a tendency to inflate staffing needs, resulting in posts not being budgeted for, said Public Service and Administration Minister Richard Baloyi yesterday.

Baloyi was addressing the provincial cabinet during a two-day visit to the province, which will see him visiting service delivery centres and addressing public service employees.

He also warned against using expensive consultants, saying department staff should step in and correct shortcomings in the structures. The department is considering allowing consultants with the minister’s approval only, he said.
