Van Der Walt, Ms D to ask the Minister of Basic Education

Whether, with reference to her (a) reply to question 1742 on 21 November 2016 and (b) department’s presentation regarding the Jobs for Cash report during the meeting of the Portfolio Committee on Basic Education on 23 November 2016, a certain service provider (name furnished) participated in the extended forensic investigations into teacher misconduct after the specified report was released; if not, why not; if so, what are the full relevant details?


(a)(b) Deloitte was contracted to serve as a member of the Ministerial Task Team (MTT) and to work alongside the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DoJ) to investigate all the cases reported to the Department and through the media for the duration of the first phase of the MTT.

Deloitte was not contracted to work on the second phase of the forensic investigation, the services of the forensic team from the DoJ have been rendered pro bono, except for the payment of the subsistence and travelling allowances as and when required. It made a sound financial sense to use the human resources drawn from a Government Department such as the DOJ to complete the work rather than to enter into a new financially binding contract with a service provider for another six (6) months.
