“R” or requisition which is appearing in the 2020-2021 National Budget next to budgetary allocations is a check-off system and it brings in the best form of accountability.
Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum stressed this in parliament this morning when SODELPA MP, Lynda Tabuya raised that 86% of budgetary allocations for the Ministry of Housing and Community Development is under requisition.
The Ministry of Housing and Community Development has been allocated $13.5 million and Tabuya says nearly the entire budgetary allocation for the Ministry of Housing is under requisition.
A budget requisition constitutes a formal request for funding.
In response, Sayed-Khaiyum says this matter should not be personalised as the requisition does not even come to him if the amount is $1 million or less.
