Departments need to stop their "silo" thinking financially.

 Those departments who have surplus money at the end of the financial year should pay it back to treasury,not squander it. An example of where money could have been paid back,but has been wasted, is Ballaglass Glen Car Park. Having never been tarmacked all my lifetime it has just been tarmacked -and we are supposed to be in hard times! I assume this is one department using up its resources in fear of its budget for the following year being cut if it returns its surplus. 

This is particularly stupid as the roads TO the now beautifully tarmacked car park are FULL of potholes. 

Departments schemes should be VERY carefully monitored by treasury to prevent this crazy waste. 

Why the contribution is important

The returning of surplus money from the departments which didn't need all their budget is important as some schemes are unnecessary or could wait , whilst some departments are crying our for money. 

The spending MUST be prioritised and money should not left to the departments to squander.
