Mente-Nqweniso, Ms NV to ask the Minister of Public Works

What amount has his department spent on repairing buildings it owns and/or has under its custodianship in each of the past five financial years?

Reply:

The department has an infrastructure programme dedicated for repairs, renovations and maintenance (Planned Maintenance) for facilities under its custodianship. There is also have a dedicated sub-programme for repair and maintenance (RAMP) of land ports of entries (LPOE) across the country. The main objective of RAMP is to address the backlog of repair and maintenance required to provide User Clients with effective and efficient facilities. The table below illustrates the expenditure in the past five financial years for both RAMP and the Planned Maintenance programme. It is quite apparent that there is a funding gap as the expenditure has been exceeding the allocations since the 2016/17 financial year, which attests to improved performance by the Department and the Property Mnagement trading Entity (PMTE).
