  • Abstract:

    The policy review process on the system of provincial and local government presents the opportunity for the state and the public at large, given the experiences since 1994, to create a better configuration of the system of government among the three spheres of government in order to enhance the service delivery capacity of the state. Given the supremacy of the Constitution in South Africa, the outcomes of the policy review process, the article contends must be guided by the constitutional framework on intergovernmental relations and intergovernmental fiscal relations as the key determinants for service delivery success.
