It must be noted that Proclamation No. 83 of 2014, which was signed by the President of South Africa on
12 of December 2014, combines Vote 10: The Royal Household with Vote 1: Office of the Premier. In
line with the recommendations of the A-G, this merging is effective from 1 April 2015 and, therefore, the
functions and budget of the Royal Household (including the public entity, the Royal Household Trust) are
added to Vote 1’s functions and budget. As such, there is no Vote 10 chapter in the 2015/16 EPRE. See
the departmental chapter relating to Vote 1: Office of the Premier on pages 1 to 46.
The Estimates of Provincial Revenue and Expenditure (EPRE) is a book published along with the tabling of the budget for the new financial year.
A department's programmes are the activities that it spends money on during the financial year. Different programmes have different expenditure budgets, depending on their requirements and available finances. More detail on the programmes is available in the department's Estimates of Provincial Expenditure documents.
The Adjusted Estimates of Provincial Revenue and Expenditure (AEPRE) is a book published along with the tabling of the adjusted budget.
