Meeting report

Report of the Portfolio Committee on Public Works and Infrastructure on Budget Vote 13: Public Works and Infrastructure

Ms S Graham (DA) referred to section 6.3.3 of the report. She said she had no recollection of the discussion mentioned in that section. Could the Committee get more clarity on this?

She noted that the Independent Development Trust (IDT) would need R2.1 billion of project value to break even. She asked about challenges facing projects in the Refurbishment, Operate and Transfer Programme (ROTP).

She suggested further recommendations:

-The Department needed to review its unused properties and find new ways to leverage these to prevent destruction and dismantling

-The Department needed to provide an update on progress with the review of the national infrastructure strategy

- The Property Management Trading Entity (PMTE) needed to undertake an organisational review to address vacancies and the impact of the proposed implementation of an automated asset management programme

-Feedback was required on the determination of the structure of Infrastructure South Africa (ISA), including organisational design and the funding model

-The Minister needed to look at the contractor development programmes across all the entities and determine whether it would be better to put them all put in one programme.

Ms A Siwisa (EFF) said that the Committee needed timeframes on when everything was going to happen.

Ms S Van Schalkwyk (ANC) said timeframes needed to be allocated to certain issues.

The Committee adopted the report with the amendments.
