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 budgets, depending on their objectives and available budgets. More detail on the programmes is available in the
department's Estimates of Provincial Expenditure documents.
In addition to exploring the department budget by programmes, the budget is classified according to Economic Classification.
The Economic Classification of a department's expenditure distinguishes between various categories of current expenditure and capital expenditure. The purpose of the economic classification is to categorise transactions according to type of object or input, such as compensation of employees or capital assets.
This visualisation highlights how many categories of expenditure there are for this department at Economic Classification level 4, and which ones are the biggest.
Budget programmes will differ in composition of spending, from compensation of employees, transfers to other agencies and goods and services, depending on their objective.
