OverviewThe Financial and Fiscal Commission (FFC) is an independent and impartial advisory institution, which the government has to consult with regard to the division of revenue among the three spheres of government and in the enactment of legislation pertaining to provincial taxes, municipal fiscal powers and functions, and provincial and municipal loans.
The strategic direction of the Commission is reflected in its Corporate Strategic Plan and in the Estimates of National Expenditure. It is informed by, among others: the Commission's strategic outcomes-orientated goals of a sustainable and equitable system of Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations (IGFR); a ‘no surprises' and future-orientated approach to its endeavours; the making of evidence-based recommendations on effective policies; comprehensive and value-added engagement with stakeholders; creating knowledge that is relevant and that enhances the developmental impact of public resources, through mobilising a balance of internal and external specialist talent that is commensurate with the needs of the Commission; creating and nurturing a dynamic, productive organisational culture; and balancing present and future demands so that effective performance ensues within the constraints of available resources.
