Western Cape MEC of Social Development Albert Fritz said the department has improved the quality of and the expansion of service delivery through the province. 

This is after the department received a clean audit outcome for the 2013/2014 period.  MEC Fritz said the department has introduced several initiatives that are paving the way nationally and internationally.

Fritz said we did three things that we thought was necessary to do. Firstly we made sure that every single NGO that is fund reports properly to us with verifiable information. Secondly every cent that we paid out from the tax payer’s money to anyone was accounted for. Lastly we looked at our own services as the department and to see how do we improve the reporting and service delivery systems within the department.

Meanwhile MEC Albert Fritz said there is still much to be done when it comes to service delivery especially for the poor and vulnerable in the province. 

He added that efforts by the department to deal with service delivery issues is paying off but more can be done.

MEC Frtiz said we want to get to a point as the department where we can say proudly that we are servicing the poor, vulnerable and the people that need us most.

“We do not have time to still waste when the needs of our community are so big that we need urgent interventions” Fritz added.
