Chetty, Mr M to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation
Whether he and/or his department submitted a policy review document and/or any other government policy document to structures outside of the Government, either to private and/or external structures or structures of any political affiliation during the past five years; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) will he furnish Mr M Chetty with copies of all such documents and (b) what are the reasons that the Government documents were provided to each structure?
The department periodically develops and reviews policies and this process involves extensive consultations with external stakeholders and the broader public. As such, draft policies are gazetted for public to provide comments.
Once departmental policies are finalised, the documents are gazetted and published on DWS website thus becoming public documents.
a) All policies of the Department can be accessed on the official website www.dws.gov.za
