Despite the cosmetic austerity measures, reports show that the travel budget after austerity is higher than the preausterity period. For example, the attendance of the President to UN, AU or ECOWAS Summits cost over Le4.0 billion in each case. Overseas travel expenses across the MDAs are uncontrollably higher, estimated at over Le250 billion or more than $30 million a year. We recognize that it may be impossible to reduce overseas travel to zero. However, in order to to make savings the following measures will be adopted: <ul><li>Government delegations will be reduced or streamlined to the minimum-value for money travels</li> <li>Quarterly budget performance report on the outcomes compared to estimates of MDAs will be published</li> <li>Use of Sierra Leone diplomatic missions to represent Government except where there are unavoidable statutory meetings that lead to net economic benefits</li> <li>Adopt travel policy across Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) on ticketing, travel per diem computation, categories of class of travel for each category of staff.</li> </ul></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-data-sources field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Data Sources</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item">https://electiondata.io/sites/default/files/2018-02/slpp-2018-manifesto.pdf</div> </div> </div> Sat, 21 Apr 2018 14:13:36 +0000 Content Manager 33645 at https://electiondata.io https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/reduce-cost-travelling#comments Procurement and Maintenance of Vehicles https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/procurement-and-maintenance-vehicles <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Procurement and Maintenance of Vehicles</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/volunteer/content-manager" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Content Manager</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 04/21/2018 - 14:13</span> <div class="field field--name-field-status field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Status</div> <div class="field__item">In Progress</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-status-updates field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Status Updates</div> <div class="field__item">On 25th, April 2018, The Statehouse released <strong>"Executive Order Number Two Immediate Expenditure Control Measures". </strong></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/procurement-and-maintenance-vehicles" data-a2a-title="Procurement and Maintenance of Vehicles"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Felectiondata.io%2Fcampaign-promises%2Fprocurement-and-maintenance-vehicles&amp;title=Procurement%20and%20Maintenance%20of%20Vehicles"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> <section class="field field--name-field-public-feedback field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=33644&amp;2=field_public_feedback&amp;3=campaign_promise_feedback" token="wQsM7sb3tf5zfjmef0PL116tgcrCH8qOZkJ4xbtaBwE"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <div class="field field--name-field-reference-documents field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Reference Documents</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sites/default/files/2018-05/executive-order-2-immediate-expenditure-control-measures-25th-april-2018.pdf">Executive Order Number Two Immediate Expenditure Control Measures</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-lt-candidate field--type-entity-reference field--label-above field--entity-reference-target-type-node clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Elected Official</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/resources/candidates/presidential/slpp/2018/julius-bio" hreflang="en">Mr. Julius Maada Bio - SLPP - 2018 - Presidential</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-campaign-promise field--type-entity-reference field--label-above field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Reference in Manifesto</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1193" hreflang="en">Financing the New Direction</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1235" hreflang="en">Measures to Control Expenditure</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Detail Activities</div> <div class="field__item">It is reported there are 100,000 vehicles registered by Government and related institutions. These exclude those registered under parastatals using private number plates. The purchasing cost of the vehicles, which are mainly SUVs, is around $65,000 to $110,000 each (Government prices). First problem, the vehicles are excessively overpriced. For example, a V6 Land Cruiser or Prado costs Government around Le660 million for 5 years covering high purchase price, customs duty/tax waiver/insurance and repairs. V8 Toyota Land Cruiser will cost Government Le1.09 billion in 5 years. We estimate that 10,000 vehicles cost is around Le6.6 trillion. Reducing this cost by at least 50% will make Le3.3 trillion in 5 years. Concrete measures will include reducing spending on purchase of V8 vehicles, introducing pool vehicle system in the public sector; staff bus service for junior workers and vehicle loan system for certain categories of public sector workers.</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-data-sources field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Data Sources</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item">https://electiondata.io/sites/default/files/2018-02/slpp-2018-manifesto.pdf</div> </div> </div> Sat, 21 Apr 2018 14:13:25 +0000 Content Manager 33644 at https://electiondata.io https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/procurement-and-maintenance-vehicles#comments Goods and Services https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/goods-and-services <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Goods and Services</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/volunteer/content-manager" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Content Manager</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 04/21/2018 - 14:13</span> <div class="field field--name-field-status field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Status</div> <div class="field__item">In Progress</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-status-updates field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Status Updates</div> <div class="field__item">On 25th, April 2018, The Statehouse released<strong> "Executive Order Number Two Immediate Expenditure Control Measures". </strong></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://electiondata.io/campaign-promises/goods-and-services" data-a2a-title="Goods and Services"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Felectiondata.io%2Fcampaign-promises%2Fgoods-and-services&amp;title=Goods%20and%20Services"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> <section class="field field--name-field-public-feedback field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=33643&amp;2=field_public_feedback&amp;3=campaign_promise_feedback" token="cBuoLjuiSAV1sVrcDhtjao1i90sUEFU3oe7dgQwZxxE"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <div class="field field--name-field-reference-documents field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Reference Documents</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sites/default/files/2018-05/executive-order-2-immediate-expenditure-control-measures-25th-april-2018.pdf">Executive Order Number Two Immediate Expenditure Control Measures</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-lt-candidate field--type-entity-reference field--label-above field--entity-reference-target-type-node clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Elected Official</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/resources/candidates/presidential/slpp/2018/julius-bio" hreflang="en">Mr. Julius Maada Bio - SLPP - 2018 - Presidential</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-campaign-promise field--type-entity-reference field--label-above field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Reference in Manifesto</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1193" hreflang="en">Financing the New Direction</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1235" hreflang="en">Measures to Control Expenditure</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Detail Activities</div> <div class="field__item">The goods and services expenditures are mainly recurrent expenditures, wages and salaries and debt service payments.

If we are to restore credibility to the service, we must coordinate the wage bill. If we are to enhance staff moral and improve on service delivery, we must control the wage bill. Wages and Salaries must be harmonized on the basis of fairness and equity in the use of public resources. A commissioner or a director or director general must have an aligned appropriate grading within the civil service comparable to other public sector workers, payroll verification exercise between Government and NASSIT, public sector workers on Government payroll will be assigned biometric photos and personalized pin codes linked to NASSIT numbers. These measures, when implemented will lead to substantial savings to finance our programs.

These alone will provide additional revenue of around Le150 billion per year.  All holders of elective office and political appointees including the President and Vice President will pay tax on their earnings to ensure fairness in the tax system.
