The conceptual framework for municipal finance can be traced back to the white paper on local government issued in 1998. This framework supported the developmental role of the local government sphere, and proposed a new system to address the root causes of financial problems in municipalities, to empower municipalities to fulfil their constitutional mandate, and balance the program of poverty eradication and equity with strategies to enhance growth, job creation and competitiveness. In order to meet the objectives of the constitution, the white paper proposed a structured system of municipality finance that is in line with the following seven basic policy principles:
- Revenue adequacy and certainty
- Effective and efficient use of resource
- Accountability, transparency and good governance
- Equity and redistribution
- Development and investment
- Micro-economic management
