1. The total cost of the study on the Agency Rationalisation was R487 200.
2. The Department commissioned the Agency Rationalisation Report and the findings were accepted as the study provided a good basis to inform and guide the decision making processes within the Department. One of the main recommendations was to move from a board governance structure to a commission (regulator) structure as boards were found to be generally ineffective. The commission or regulator without a board structure was the decision taken by the Department except for one entity that has a different funding model. Research findings serve as guidelines and may be implemented by the Department.
