The Chairperson stated that the Committee would deal with its minutes and reports. The minutes and reports needed to be concluded before it was handed to the next committee of the Fifth Parliament.

Committee Minutes dated 24 July 2013
The Chairperson tabled the minutes for consideration. The Committee went through the document page-by-page.

One minor error was corrected and the minutes were adopted.

Committee Minutes dated 17 September 2013
The Chairperson tabled the minutes for consideration. The Committee went through the document page-by-page.

The Chairperson stated that on page 5 the Integrated Resource Plan was adopted on a three-year basis, but it was adopted every two years. The audio recording on this matter should be revised.

The Chairperson proposed on the same page that the Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review Report should be written out in full.

The Chairperson proposed on the same page that the word “electricity” should be added to the sentence “and this is funded by the tariff”, to read “electricity tariff”. This would clarify the type of tariff.

Ms B Tinto (ANC) referred to the resolutions of the committee on page 6.

The Chairperson mentioned that resolutions have not been followed up, either late or no responses were given by various entities.

The committee adopted the minutes with amendments.

Committee Minutes Dated 9 October 2013
The Chairperson tabled the minutes for consideration. The Committee went through the document page-by-page.

The Chairperson referred to page 2, “The increased cost of base metals that are used to manufacture the hardware components”. It was not clear what hardware components were being referred to. This might be confused with hardware components of a computer.

On the same page a sentence needed to be corrected, “Lack of skills and resources in municipal technical departments, including planning”. The audio recording should be consulted to clarify, but if not then the words “including planning” should be deleted.

Unnecessary words on page 3 were deleted and grammatical errors were addressed.

The Chairperson referred to page 4, the word “contracted” should be replaced with appointed. The use of the word contracted assumed that the Audit and Risk Committee was a service provider, but it was appointed.

On the same page a word was deleted.

The Chairperson stated that there were two sets of minutes; this should not be the case, as he made corrections to the document received a week ago. As on page 6 “INEP electrification”, INEP stood for Integrated National Electrification Programme, so the word electrification was a repetition. The word electrification was removed.

Unnecessary words were deleted.

The minutes were adopted with corrections.

Committee Minutes dated 10 October 2013
The Chairperson tabled the minutes for consideration. The Committee went through the document page-by-page.

The Chairperson proposed corrections on page 2 and replaced the word “fruitful” and wasteful expenditure to “fruitless”. On the same page “CEF had to restate their financial statements after the audit report, and reflect fruitful and wasteful expenditure, which could not be uncovered at the time that the audit opinion was issued”. Clarity was needed whether the sentence read that, it could be uncovered or it could not be recovered.  

The minutes were adopted.

Committee Minutes dated 10 October 2013 on a briefing by PetroSA on their Annual Report 2012/13
The Chairperson tabled the minutes for consideration. The Committee went through the document page-by-page.

The Chairperson stated that the current set of minutes for PetroSA should not be confused with the previous minutes on the Central Energy Fund.

The Chairperson referred to page 2, “Investigation into certain Board matters had been completed”, was replaced with, investigation into alleged procurement irregularities, as this process has not been concluded.
