SUMMARY

In the previous meeting on this subject on 23 June 2005, the Committee had mandated the Public Protector and the Department of Justice to come up with a suitable remuneration package for the Deputy Public Protector.

Ms O Sewpaul (Director: Finance) presented the report with recommendations regarding the remuneration and conditions of service of the Deputy Public Protector (DPP). The Committee proceeded with voting on recommendations in regard to an appropriate salary package for the Deputy Public Protector. The Committee voted unanimously in favour of the proposed remuneration package of R619 434 for the Deputy Public Protector.

The Chair noted that the approved remuneration package would place the incumbent at level similar to that of Deputy Minister or Deputy Speaker. She submitted that the remuneration package was in line with all senior managers within the public service. It was observed that senior managers within the public service are ranked under a special category. The DPP would receive a basic salary of R 371 660 which was slightly higher than that of two senior officials in the Office of the Public Protector

Further, the DPP would receive a flexible portion of R247 774 which would exclude pension contribution. Therefore the DPP would have to secure his/her own private pension scheme and would not become a member of the government pension scheme. The current remuneration and conditions of service would become effective upon appointment of the Deputy Public Protector

Meeting adjourned.
