Figg, Mr MJ to ask the Minister of Public Works

Whether any progress has been made on the implementation of the (a) Public Works Towards the 21st Century White Paper developed in 1997; and (b) Creating an Enabling Environment for Reconstruction, Growth and Development in the Construction Industry in 1999; if not, in each case, why not; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?

Reply:

(a) and (b) Yes,

Overview Progress Report on the Implementation of the 1997 and 1999 Public Works White Papers can be summarised as follows:

Construction Sector

Since the adoption of the 1997 and 1999 Public Works White Papers respectively the Department of Public Works (DPW) led a process that culminated in the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) and the Council for the Built Environment (CBE) Acts of Parliament, as well as the Construction Sector Charter and Codes. The Department is currently in the process of reviewing the cited Acts.

The Emerging Contractor Development Programme is a key intervention that has been implemented. This has enabled participation of black owned small and medium enterprises in the construction sector. However, there is still room for improvement to deepen transformation in the sector. Opportunities availed to these enterprises through set-asides have afforded these business entities opportunities to gain skills and knowledge, as well as expand their asset-base.

Property Sector

The State has been beset with a number of intertwined challenges in respect of the management and administration of its immovable property portfolio. To provide a uniform framework and ensure coordination in the management of immovable assets the Government Immovable Assets Management Act, 2007 (GIAMA) [Act No. 19 of 2007] was enacted. The process of institutionalisation of the Act started immediately thereafter and continuous monitoring is being undertaken.

In an endeavour to enhance implementation of GIAMA, the Department of Public Works embarked on a programme to produce a complete and Generally Recognised Accounting Practice (GRAP) compliant Immovable Asset Register (IAR). The IAR enhancement programme was successfully completed in the 2015/16 financial year.

The IAR is a critical mechanism that enables the State to have accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive information on its immovable assets.

One of the challenges identified through the operational Policy Framework was the lack of a pre-eminent property and facilities management hub for the State. In September 2014 Cabinet approved the establishment of the Property Management Trading Entity (PMTE). The Entity is primarily charged with the management of State properties. We are currently in the process of operationalizing the PMTE.

Public Employment/Works Programmes

The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) is in its third phase, having been formally launched in 2004. The EPWP Strategy and EPWP Guidelines for implementation have been developed to give direction towards the implementation of the intervention.

Central to the implementation of the EPWP is the application of labour intensive methods, which have resulted in massive job creation, skilling and community asset building. Major social infrastructure assets include police stations, schools, community halls, courts and internal access roads, amongst others. The StatsSA 2015 Quarterly Household Survey confirmed that the EPWP has had a significant impact in addressing the challenge of hunger as a result of poverty for thousands of households. The EPWP has been a safety net for many who struggle to find employment in the mainstream economy. Moreover, to an extent, the EPWP has contributed to reducing socio-economic inequalities and has had a positive effect on social cohesion.

Deracialisation and Radical Transformation in the Construction Sector

The Department of Public Works provides leadership in facilitating the transformation of the built environment (BE). The enactment of the Council for the Built Environment Act, 2000 [Act No. 43 of 2000] and the Acts related to the 6 Built Environment Professions Councils (BEPCs) attests to the efforts towards the transformation of the BE sector. The BEPC talk to the following disciplines:

  • Architecture;
  • Landscape Architecture;
  • Quantity Surveying;
  • Engineering;
  • Construction project management; and
  • Property Valuers.

Though challenges still exist, a lot of groundwork has been covered leading to a steady throughput of BE professionals from designated groups.

To foster inclusivity and broad participation in the property sector, particularly with respect to State-owned immovable assets, the Property Management Empowerment Policy was developed and approved in January 2018 and subsequently became operational.

The Property Sector Charter and Codes were developed to facilitate transformation in the Property sector. The amended Codes were approved by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in June 2017.

The Construction Sector Transformation Charter provides the basis for the development of the Construction Sector Code as it reflects the commitment of various parties to actively promote a vibrant, transformed and competitive construction sector. The Construction Sector Charter and Codes have recently (December 2017) been approved by the DTI.

All the efforts alluded above demonstrate that the Department of Public Works is committed to creating an enabling environment for reconstruction, growth and development in the Property and Construction Sectors.

Krumbock, Mr GR to ask the Minister of Tourism

With regard to the National Tourism Sector Strategy, which states that his department would work with industry to deal with affordability of domestic tourism, why has his department failed to implement the budget resort concept as originally planned?

Reply:

The Department has not failed to implement the budget resort concept. Properties identified in the budget resort audit completed by the Department of Tourism are not owned by the department but by Local and/ or Provincial Government. Commercialisation of these tourism assets remains the responsibility of the owing entities and not the Department of Tourism. If requested, the Department of Tourism remains committed to supporting the efforts of Local and/or Provincial Government with regards to these facilities. One form of such support is in the 2018/19 financial year the Department will develop an ownership and operational model for the budget resorts.

Robertson, Mr K to ask the Minister of Public Works

(1) Whether, with reference to the reply of the President, Mr C M Ramaphosa, to the debate on the State of the Nation Address on 22 February 2018 to implement lifestyle audits, (a) he, (b) senior management service members in his department and/or (c) any of the heads of entities reporting to him have undergone a lifestyle audit in the past three financial years; if not, have any plans been put in place to perform such audits; if so, in each case, what are the details of the (i) date of the lifestyle audit, (ii) name of the person undergoing the audit, (iii) name of the auditing firm conducting the audit and (iv) outcome of the audit; (2) Whether he will furnish Mr K P Robertson with copies of the lifestyle audit reports?

Reply:

(1) The Department of Public Works has not conducted any lifestyle audits in the categories stipulated by the Honourable Member. Nonetheless, Government uses a system of financial disclosures as prescribed by the Public Service Regulations of 2016. The system provides for the disclosure of shareholding; directorships and partnerships; equities; income generating assets; sponsorships; remunerative work outside an employee’s formal employment; gifts and hospitality; and other financial interests. Additionally, employees are required to make related party disclosures.

Financial interests disclosed by senior managers are verified by the Public Service Commission (PSC). The same is monitored by the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) and any situation hinting at a conflict of interest is identified and addressed with the employee concerned by first informing the Executive Authority. Moreover, the Auditor-General South Africa (AGSA), has unfettered access to financial disclosures of employees by virtue of Section 15 (1) of the Public Audit Act, 2004 [Act No. 25 of 2004]. The AGSA is therefore empowered to conduct an audit on the lifestyle of any public service employees to verify the financial position of such persons and establish conflicts of interests, if any.

One of my key priorities as the Minister of Public Works ever since my appointment to this portfolio in 2011 has been zero tolerance to fraud and corruption. To this extent, through the Turnaround programme, systems have been put in place to deal with these challenges with visible successes. We have established the Anti-Corruption Unit, which has conducted a number of investigations on suspicious activities. In some instances, the cases were investigated together with the Special Investigating Unit (SIU). We therefore support the call by the President, His Excellency, Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa, to conduct lifestyle audits and believe that these will be an effective tool in the fight against fraud and corruption.

(2) No. There are no reports of such audits, since the lifestyle audits, in the strict sense of the term, have yet to be conducted by the Department. Once the guidelines are finalized on how these audits should be conducted we will be in a position to implement them.

Krumbock, Mr GR to ask the Minister of Tourism

What (a) are the relevant details of his department’s engagements with the Security Cluster to deal with the attacks on tourists and (b) steps has his department taken to implement a tourist safety plan?

Reply:

(a) The National Tourist Safety Forum stakeholder engagements will culminate in formalised systems and procedures that will function in collaboration with the existing tourist safety structures at national, provincial, local and private sector levels. The Security Cluster is part of the key stakeholders at all levels. When finalised, the strategic document will encompass this key cluster.

(b) The Department of Tourism has prioritised tourist safety as one of the key focus areas that require immediate interventions. In the current (2018/2019) financial year, the Department has established a National Tourism Safety Forum (NTSF) that is driven in collaboration with all the key Tourism Sector stakeholders including the Security Cluster. The NTSF stakeholder engagements will culminate in formalised systems and procedures that will function in collaboration with the existing tourist safety structures at national, provincial, local and private sector levels.

Esterhuizen, Mr JA to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

Whether he has found that the provision of incentives, such as subsidies and tariff protection, which remove competitiveness in the industry, has an impact on the weak levels of economic growth in the country?

Reply:

It is an over-simplification to suggest that ‘subsidies and tariff protection remove competitiveness in the industry’.

(i) The dti’s incentives are carefully designed so as to improve the competitiveness of the beneficiary company and – over time – the competitiveness of industries.

For example, the Manufacturing Competitiveness Enhancement Programme (MCEP) was designed to assist firms which, after the Global Financial Crisis, were facing declining demand in traditional export markets and heightened import competition in South Africa’s domestic market. the dti offered matching grant funding to qualifying companies intending to invest in inter alia:

  • Buildings, machinery and equipment,
  • Improving company-level electricity and water generation and/or usage,
  • Undertaking specialised skills development, and
  • Product development to access new export markets.

By providing incentives to firms undertaking these types of investments, the dti is precisely targeting support to those activities which it is widely agreed, will raise firm-level competitiveness.

Over time, those firms that received the incentive should see an improvement in their competitiveness and may begin to win additional market share in the domestic or export market.

Those firms which have not made these kinds of investment may lose market share and through competition will eventually be forced to consider making competitiveness improving investments of their own, accept the loss of market share/profits, or find other markets for their products.

In this way, the dti will have directly supported the competiveness improvement of Company A through the provision of a subsidy. In addition, the dti’s support to Company A may – over time – induce substantial new investments from Companies B, C, D, and E which represent the industry as a whole, and thereby the competitiveness of an industry may improve.

(ii) South Africa has adopted a developmental approach to tariffs and has ensured that tariffs are used as a policy tool to support industrial development. In addition, South Africa adopts a case-by-case approach to tariffs based on the needs of each sector.

Consider the case of South Africa’s Automotive sector. It is widely held that the industry and local firms are highly competitive and are regular recipients of global quality and productivity awards. This happens even though South Africa maintains modest tariff protection for the Automotive sector. In these specific circumstances, the domestic Automotive sector firms compete with one another vigorously and are constantly looking at ways to improve their competitiveness even though they benefit from tariff protection.

There are however cases where tariff protection can remove competitiveness from industry. Consider a product such as soybeans which is used to produce poultry feed. Imposition of, or maintenance of a tariff on soybeans while South Africa’s agricultural sector is unable to grow enough soybeans to satisfy local demand will indeed reduce the competitiveness of the downstream industry (in this case poultry).

To avoid such a situation arising, Government assesses tariff protection in a rigorous process and considers a wide range of socio-economic factors across stakeholders before deciding to reduce, increase or impose tariff protection. In addition, Government may decide to provide a rebate of a particular tariff for a specific amount of time. Such a rebate is designed to avoid the competitiveness-reducing effect of a tariff in the soybean example while not forfeiting Government’s policy space to impose a tariff at a later date when circumstances may necessitate such an intervention.

(ii) the dti has found that the provision of carefully designed incentives (including tariff protection) has substantially contributed to South Africa’s economic growth.

For example, for every R1 in investment incentives provided by the dti, approximately R4 in investment is provided by private-sector investors. Thus, in the 2017/18 Financial Year, the dti’s incentives encouraged 849 firms to commit R35bn in private-sector investment.

Put differently, Government’s economic policy which includes the provision of incentives and tariffs, creates an enabling business environment which sustains 1.4 million formal and informal jobs in the Manufacturing sector.

Consequently, the support afforded by the dti to industry has supported economic growth and job retention especially in the period after the Global Financial Crisis.

Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)(a) What is the total number of instances of corruption at the University of Zululand that have been reported to her department or which her department has been made aware of, (b) what are the reported allegations in each instance, (c) was each allegation investigated, (d) what was the outcome of each investigation and (e) what are the names of the people who were implicated; (2) were any punitive measure put in place in respect of each case; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1)(a) The Department of Higher Education has received information about seven alleged instances of corruption at the University of Zululand.

(b) These allegations relate to the following:

(i) procurement processes for infrastructure projects;

(ii) qualification fraud, changing of marks and tampering with admission requirements;

(iii) irregularities relating to the purchase of housing for executive managers;

(iv) the procurement process for the appointment of a computer-training service provider using funds from the Teaching Development Grant;

(v) fraud relating to the appointment of the Vice-Chancellor;

(vi) the un-procedural appointment of University of Zululand attorneys; and

(vii) an alleged R11.5 million transfer.

(c) – (d) (i) Procurement processes for infrastructure projects. The tender process for infrastructure development was challenged in court and it was halted whilst the matter was heard in court. The university investigated the matter and found that certain staff members flawed the procurement process due to the non-disclosure of material facts. The officials implicated in the irregular procurement process were subjected to the university’s disciplinary process and have since left the institution.

(ii) Qualification fraud, changing of marks and tampering with admission requirements to allow students who did not meet the requirements to be admitted. It was alleged that fake academic transcripts were being generated outside the university. The university reported that it acted decisively and suspended two employees identified in the alleged degrees for sale scam. The matter was also dealt with in the court and both accused were found guilty on 62 counts of fraud. The marks of individuals identified were removed and students were allowed to re-register.

(iii) Irregularities relating to the purchase of executive housing. The Department received a number of complaints from the Secretary of Save Unizulu amongst others, alleging financial irregularities, including the spending of R19 million on houses and plots at an up-market eco-state to house university executives. The Minister wrote to the University Council requesting clarity on the alleged irregularities. The Council responded that the purchase was approved in 2015 as part of the university’s retention strategy. The houses remain the property of the university, and the use is governed by the university housing policy.

(iv) Illegal sourcing of a computer-training programme. The allegation is linked to the appointment of a service provider to provide computer training as part of the university’s Teaching Development Grant (TDG) funded activities. The Department requested information from the university and was satisfied with the explanation. The external audit report of the TDG funded activities indicated that the funds were used to support the university’s approved TDG plan, and were in accordance with the university’s own policies. No further action was requested at that time.

(v) Alleged fraudulent appointment of the Vice-Chancellor. The appointment of a Vice-Chancellor is the remit of Council and not the Department. The Department was initially invited to sit on the selection committee due to a misinterpretation of the university rule. The Department engaged with the university explaining that the rule referred to Ministerial appointees on Council and not Departmental officials, and recused itself from the process. The Minister of Higher Education and Training also raised the matter with the Chairperson of Council and was reassured that the university had undertaken an extensive search in accordance with the recruitment policy applied to appointment of a Vice-Chancellor and been unsuccessful in attracting an appropriate candidate before the Chairperson of Council requesting Professor Mtose to consider applying for the Vice-Chancellor position.

(vi) Fraudulent/Unprocedural appointment of the University of Zululand attorneys. The university appoints its service providers in line with its own supply chain management policies. The Council approved the appointment of the attorneys. The university has submitted satisfactory reports on time and in line with reporting requirements. In 2016, it received an unqualified audit opinion. The analysis of the reports does not show any material irregularities in respect to its supply chain management.

(vii) Illegal transfer of R11.5 million. An illegal transfer of R11.5 million to a private account occurred in 2013 just before the Administrator left the university. A forensic audit was undertaken by the university to investigate the case. The university has indicated that it had dealt with the matter. The Department has not seen the forensic report.

(2) Although the university has investigated all the cases detailed above, and put in place various punitive measures, the Minister has recently directed the Council to conduct an independent forensic investigation into a whole range of matters, including the above, so that these allegations can be comprehensively addressed as a matter of urgency.

(1) What are the details of the breakdown of the allocation of the (a) R127 Million budgeted for the extension of the employment of 200 members of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) in order to deter piracy in the Mozambique Channel and (b) R918 242 921 budgeted for the extension of the employment of 1170 members of the SANDF to participate in the United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) as part of the Force Intervention Brigade in the Democratic Republic of Congo; (2) (a) what are the details of the total amount (i) which could have been received annually as reimbursement for participation in MONUSCO, (ii) actually received annually from the United Nations as reimbursement and (iii) of potential reimbursements which were forfeited annually by South Africa and (b) what are the reasons for such forfeiture?

Reply:

QUESTION 1

Rm 127 was allocated to conduct Anti-piracy in the Mozambican Channel as Op COPPER. Of the Rm 127 that was allocated, R74 130 523 was reallocated within the DoD due to budget cuts, thus leaving the Operation with R52 869 477 and the breakdown is as follows:

a. Compensation of Employees R34 898 573

b. Good and Services R17 925 762

c. Machinery and equipment R 45 142

TOTAL R52 869 477

QUESTION 2:

According to the actual reimbursement received versus the expected reimbursement the breakdown is as follows:

MOU Expected

a. Personnel R 251 656 006,88

b. Self-sustainment R 61 104 030,93

c. Main Equipment R 85 018 126,60

Sub-total R 397 778 164,42

d. Actual Reimbursement Received R 232 505 094,17

e. Amount still due by UN R 110 606 126,28

f. Reimbursement forfeited R 54 666 943,97

The forfeited reimbursement is due to the unserviceability of the prime mission equipment in the Mission Area. The effects of budget cuts have a negative impact on our operations and the maintenance of prime mission equipment; thus, result in the SANDF not being able to meet the strict UN assessment criteria for re-imbursement.

Reply:

Department

a) The department has so far identified critical posts that are funded and to date sixty-nine posts have been advertised and are in different stages of being filled

b) The department experience budget cuts on compensation of employees during 2015/16 Financial year and this had an impact on the filling of posts since not all vacant posts could not be filled with the current budget

(c) The functions of vacancies are being executed by other employees on the same salary grading and in some instances of a person appointed to act in a higher post. The acting appointments are based on the Department’s operational requirements, to ensure continuity in service delivery and efficient and effective functioning. An acting appointment is only applicable when service delivery will be hampered.

(d)(i) The total cost implication of vacancies in the Department since the implementation of the new structure, i.e. from 1 April 2012 to date amounts to R361 051 457.08.

(ii) R9 760 335.72.

Airports Company South Africa SOC Limited (ACSA)

The Airports Company South Africa approaches resourcing within the context of its approved Manpower budget. Where employee terminations are relevant, and a vacancy occurs, the company proceeds in recruiting for such positions within the shortest possible time thereby ensuring efficient continuation of operations.

In instances where a position is vacant, whilst recruiting for such position, it may be required to appoint an employee to act in such position. The acting of the employee in another position is regulated by a Board approved Acting Policy which includes the payment of an Acting Allowance, which is aligned with market practice.

(b) Positions are in the various stages of recruitment, ranging from advertising, shortlisting, interview stage, offers extended to successful candidates and candidates serving their notice periods with current employers.

(c) For critical positions an acting employee is appointed in the interim. The acting employee must perform all the duties of the higher position. The acting appointment must be in writing and communicated. Payment of Acting Allowances will be motivated by the Line Executive, and approved by the Executive Human Capital, for all acting appointments below executive level. Acting for executive positions must be approved by the Chief Executive Officer.

Non-critical positions are absorbed by current employees.

(d) Recruitment costs where applicable.

(i) ATNS pays retrospective ex-gratia payment to employees acting in the higher positions for a period of two (2) months and more. Employees acting on higher position will be paid 15% of own current Cost to Company as ex-gratia payment. Employees acting on higher position with another employee acting in that employees’ position, will be paid 5% of own current Cost to Company as ex-gratia payment. However, the acting allowance are offset against the salary for the vacant position.

(ii) Cost as per the Peromnes grade and the ATNS remuneration Policy.

South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA)

a) All vacant positions as per the approved organisational structure of the South African Civil Aviation (SACAA) have been advertised on multiple platforms. Trainee positions have also been created to build capacity and fast track the filling of positions. As existing positions become vacant they are advertised immediately.

b) The SACAA had undergone a restructuring exercise about two years ago and as a result additional positions were created. The filling of the new positions is staggered over a period of three (3) years, i.e. 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 financial years. In the current financial year, i.e. 2018/19, all positions as per the new structure need to be filled. Vacancies often occur as a result of the newly created positions being filled by existing staff who have applied for the new positions and this then opens up new vacancies. As soon as these vacancies occur they get advertised immediately. In addition, occasionally there would be a shortage of certain scarce and critical skills, which results in those positions taking longer to fill.

c) The vacancies have not resulted in performance issues or gaps as the work gets planned based on the staff complement approved for the particular financial year. In instances where there is a specific need for additional staffing, fixed temporary employees are appointed to deal with the additional work load in order to fulfil the specified projects.

d) (i)during the vacancy period

All vacant posts are budgeted for. In some instances, staff is appointed to act in critical positions and in terms of the SACAA remuneration policy an acting allowance is paid to these employees that act in higher positions. The costs relating to vacancies in the 2017/2018 financial year are:

  1. Acting allowances paid to employees acting in higher positions R 720 766.00
  2. Recruitment and placement fees; and R1 530 837.00

(ii) once a vacancy has been filled?

There is no additional cost implications because all positions are budgeted for.

Cross-Border Road Transport Agency (CBRTA)

a) The Cross-Border Road Transport Agency (CBRTA) not all vacant positions would be filled in any financial year except those that are budgeted for and are identified as critical positions.

b) Due to budget limitations and financial constraints, only identified critical positions are given preference.

c) Operations continue with the current employees in positions. Only in instances where it has been proven that the function will require at least someone to act will an employee be appointed to act in the vacant position.

d) The implications of vacant positions in the organisation has financial impact in instances where acting arrangements exist. (ii) Once a vacancy is filled, there are no extra costs outside the remuneration and rewards cost.

Road Accident Fund (RAF)

a) The Road Accident Fund (RAF) utilises various methods to fill vacancies at all levels and grades which includes, inter alia, Linked-In, the RAF website, recruitment agencies appointed through the RAF’s supply chain management processes and the use of head hunters from the RAF’s panel of service providers in the event where the above-mentioned resourcing methods prove to be unsuccessful,

b) the reasons for the vacancies not being filled includes; interviews not yielding positive results for senior positions, resulting in the positions having to be re-advertised; job applicants have to work a notice periods at their current employer; and instances where the successful candidate declines the employment offer and the second best candidate is not suitable, resulting in the position having to be re-advertised,

c) suitably qualified employees are appointed to act in vacant positions, to perform the necessary functions. The RAF’s Resourcing Policy provides that the relevant Executive is responsible for appointing employees to act in vacant positions up to TASK grade 20 and the CEO, for vacant positions above TASK grade 20; and

d) the cost implications (i) during the vacancy period includes an acting allowance of 15% of the basic salary paid in respect of the acting employee’s substantive position, provided that the entitlement to the acting allowance arises only from the third month of the acting period and (ii) there are no costs incurred once the vacancy has been filled, save for the cost of employment related to the successful incumbent.

Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC)

a) Strides have been made to reduce vacancies in the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) in line with the available funds. As one of our measures and KPI’s the vacancy rate is kept at 10% which is a universally acceptable standard to ensure capacity within an institution.

b) The filling of vacancies is determined on the basis of available funds and strategic objectives of the Corporation.

c) Employees are appointed to act in positions which have been identified as critical, to ensure that mthe work that would have been performed by those employees continues.

Where the positions are vacant but not critical, employees within the units are alternatively utilised through job enrichment and or enlargement to perform such functions as part of employee career development.

d) (i) During the vacancy period, there were two employees who were appointed to act in key positions namely, Acting Company and Secretary and Regional Manager Mpumalanga. The cost of the acting assignment is R246 549.97.

(ii) The financial implications for filling of vacant and funded positions during the 2017/18 is R3 252 329.40.

AARTO

a) The steps taken to fill the vacancies were first to finalise the organisational structure, in line with what would be required for the national rollout and the new requirements as a result of the AARTO Amendment Bill provisions. After the organisational structure was approved, it was followed by the subsequent grading of all post levels, prior to embarking on the recruitment process to fill those positions, which were scheduled to be filled during the 2018/19 period;

b) The Agency was working on the new organisational structure to support the RTIA strategy;

c) The existing staff members; and

d) None. (i) None and (ii) None.

Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA)

  1. The steps taken by the Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) to fill the vacancies were first to finalise the organisational structure, in line with what would be required for the national rollout and the new requirements as a result of the AARTO Amendment Bill provisions. Once the organisational structure was approved, it was followed by the subsequent grading of all post levels, prior to embarking on the recruitment process to fill those positions, which is scheduled to be filled during the 2018/19 period;
  2. The Agency was working on the new organisational structure to support the RTIA strategy;
  3. The existing staff members; and
  4. None. (i) None and (ii) None.

South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL)

a) South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) Corporate Services cluster advertises open roles on a continuous basis to fill any vacancies, as and when they become vacant in line with our policies.

b) Recruitment delays can occur from time to time if right skills, that are in line with our Employment Equity Plan, are not readily available from the market. This may necessitate SANRAL to re-advertise and thus delay the finalisation of the recruitment process.

c) In the interim acting or temporary arrangements are made until positions are filled.

d) (i) -There are no quantifiable costs as SANRAL does not pay acting allowances.

(ii) Other than the cost of recruitment, there is no other costs associated with vacancies.

Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA):

a) PRASA has a moratorium on appointments except for core and critical skills as well as vacancies that have transpired because of natural attrition. The vacancies that are not affected by the moratorium are duly advertised and filled, however, there are vacancies at an executive level that are yet to be filled.

b) The number of Board changes have affected the finalization and filling of the executive positions.

c) The Human Capital Management function performs vacancy management, and other employees are employed in an acting capacity to fill the vacant positions.

d) (i) The cost implications for critical vacancies are either the acting or responsibility allowances paid to individuals taking care of the role whilst there is a vacancy.

(ii) The agency or advertisement costs are the costs incurred in filling the vacancies and the salary of the successful candidates is the cost incurred once the vacancies are filled.

Railway Safety Regulator (RSR):

a) All vacant positions are advertised on the RSR’s website and national newspapers simultaneously in order to ensure that the entire South African population is reached.

b) Some positions are not currently filled as per the approved Organizational Structure due to the RSR’s turn-around plan that was approved at the beginning of the financial year.

c) Filling of vacant positions is the responsibility of the line manager in consultation with the HR and Finance departments. Responsibilities are spread across the employees in that department or section to ensure continuity of service delivery.

d) (i) There are no cost implications because no one is paid acting allowances in those vacant positions.

(ii) Once the vacancy has been filled, the applicable remuneration is paid to the incumbent. This would have been budgeted for.

South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA)

The SAMSA Board made a recommendation to the Shareholder Minister on the CEO appointment, appointment is the Shareholder’s prerogative. The Board appointed the Acting CEO for twelve months and the incumbent could not act in the role for over twelve months. Decisions are made by EXCO, supported by the COO in the absence of the CEO.

Ports Regulator Of South Africa (PRSA)

a) The Ports Regulator cannot fill all vacancies as it is limited by the transfers received from parliamentary appropriations and the DOT budget, and in terms of the National Ports Act, it is not currently allowed to generate funds from other charges or levies. The DOT is currently working on an Amendment to the National Ports Act in order to facilitate a self-funding model for the Ports Regulator, to allow it to better capacitate itself.

b) In the absence of a self-funding mandate in the Act, the filling of remaining unfunded vacancies on the organogram requires a revision to the baseline allocation from appropriation. The vacant positions have been unfilled as the baseline has not been revised upwards at a reasonable rate, and the entity can not appoint employees using its small reserves as this option is not sustainable going forward. Non-recurrent or lump sum funds cannot be used for recurrent expenditure such as the filling of posts.

c) The current workforce works much harder to perform tasks that would have been performed by people in vacant positions. Also, the Ports Regulator has hired interns on a one year contract basis using non-recurrent funds. Thus far the Regulator has (with difficulty) managed the situation such that the vacant positions have not reduced the overall performance of the entity in that for the past four years, the entity has always achieved 85% to 100% of the KPI’s on the annual performance plan, as well as a clean audit over the past three years.

d) The cost implications has been communicated during the MTEF budget process to indicate the employee cost funding gap, unfortunately the gap has not been filled thus no appointments made. Currently it is estimated that approximately R10 million per annum revision to baseline is required to fill the organogram with respect to salaries and other employee related costs.

America, Mr D to ask the Minister of Tourism

In view of his department’s indication during meetings of the Portfolio Committee on Tourism that it would work with other government departments to look into the excessive aviation taxes, what (a) engagements has his department undertaken with other government departments thus far and (b) steps has his department taken to achieve the stated objective?

Reply:

a) The Department is a member of the National Transport Forum and engages on all matters affecting tourism. This includes recent engagements with all relevant departments in the Tourism Strategy Implementation Work-Stream focusing on facilitating ease of access broadly.

b) The Department of Transport is also working on establishing the Single Transport Economic Regulator (STER) to consolidate the economic regulation of transport. The STER will, amongst others, promote transparency in the setting of transport fees and stakeholders will have a mechanism to provide their views. The Department of Tourism was engaged in respect of this process and provided its inputs.

  • In the previous year, ACSA announced the reduction of airport fees by 35% from April 2017.

-Passenger service charge per departing domestic passenger: R82 (from R127)

-Passenger service charge per departing international passenger: R223 (from R346)

-Passenger service charge per departing passenger for an airport within Botswana, Namibia

and Swaziland: R169 (from R263)

  • The 35% reduction in prices is in line with UNWTO’s calls for destinations to avoid stifling tourism growth with exorbitant charges.

Reply:

For the period commencing 2015/2016 to 2017/2018 financial year SSA has recorded forty-one (41) motor vehicle accidents of which nine (9) vehicles were found to be uneconomical to repair.

Repair costs were as follows:

Vehicles were written off when the value to repair exceeded the vehicle value. Hence, it did not make economic sense to repair them.

Currently, there is not tracking system installed in the official vehicles for SSA. Research with regard to systems is currently being conducted to find the most suitable system for the SSA.

Esterhuizen, Mr JA to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

(1)Whether the 10% tariff protection given to a certain company (ArcelorMittal) was one of the conditions that the price of steel must not be increased to the downstream industry; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, why has the specified company increased steel prices more than six times since it was given the tariff protection?

Reply:

No, the conditions of the 10% tariff increase on primary steel products produced by ArcelorMittal South Africa (AMSA) does not include conditions that the price of steel must not increase.

The conditions of the tariff adjustment are subject to a signed agreement between AMSA and government which includes a requirement for AMSA to abide by steel pricing principles and reciprocal commitments. These are the retention of jobs, maintaining industrial output and an independent settlement with the Competition Commission to invest R4.6 billion to raise competitiveness.

The agreement is based on an international basket price calculated using the domestic prices of steel in countries South Africa competes with in downstream steel intensive products. The basket is aimed at achieving a fair flat steel price that is priced appropriately to ensure that steel-dependent industries are competitive, while at the same time ensuring that the upstream steel mills remain sustainable. AMSA has complied with the basket price which changes as global prices increase or decrease in an environment where global market prices and input costs are volatile, but generally increasing. This process is monitored by the Department of Trade and Industry (thedti) and the International Trade and Administration Commission.(ITAC)

Excess steel capacity, unfair trade and increased steel imports are challenges, not only for the domestic economy, but globally. These problems are exacerbated by structural problems, weak economic recovery and depressed market demand. This has resulted in the increasing deployment of large-scale trade measures by a host of countries. In SA, the tariff increases are part of an integrated set of measures deployed by the SA government to respond to the challenges and support the steel industry as a whole.

In 2015 with the onset of the steel crisis, an interdepartmental task team was established to develop short to medium term measures to save the industry from the threat of closure, loss of capacity and job losses. The outcomes of the work to date are the following measures currently being implemented and monitored:

  1. Increase in the general rate of customs duty on primary steel products to 10% and safeguard measures for a period of 3 years on hot rolled coil and plate products,
  2. Tariff increases on a range of downstream products and the deployment of rebates where products are not manufactured or additional value added, before export,
  3. As set out above an agreement on a set of principles for flat steel pricing in SA,
  4. Local procurement by government to raise aggregate domestic demand by:
      • ‘undeeming’ of primary steel in designated products (requiring the use of locally manufactured primary steel)
      • designation of downstream steel intensive construction steel products and components,
  5. A settlement by the Competition Commission on a range of issues with AMSA,
  6. Establishment of a R1.5bn Steel Development Fund to support key downstream steel sectors/sub sectors, housed at the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC)
  7. Investment support through 12i tax incentives and incubation support for SME development.

Other measures are currently being considered and processed. These include the development of a short term negotiated electricity pricing framework for energy intensive users and a SARS/Customs reference price system for downstream products.

The inter-departmental steel task team is also engaged with developing medium to longer term interventions. Announcements on these will be made in due course.

Reply:

Question (a)(i): The Office of the Ombud for Financial Services Providers (FAIS Ombud) was established in terms of section 20 of the Financial Advisory and intermediary Service Act 37 of 2002 (FAIS Act). The purpose of the Office is outlined in section 20(3) which states that:

‘The objective of the Ombud is to consider and dispose of complaints in a procedurally fair, informal, economical and expeditious manner and by reference to what is equitable in all the circumstances, with due regard to-

(a) the contractual arrangement or other legal relationship between the complainant and any other party to the complaint; and

(b) the provisions of this Act.’

Question (a)(ii): The FAIS Ombud is funded through a budget allocation emanating from levies collected by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority.

Question (b)(ii) The FAIS Ombud receives an approved budget at the beginning of each financial year and expenses incurred by the Office are commensurate with the budget so received. The financial information for the 2017/2018 financial year is not yet available as this information is still to be audited by the Auditor General in accordance with section 40 of the PFMA. The information for the three financial years immediately preceding the 2017/2018 financial year are detailed below.

(c) In order to respond to the question of the performance of the FAIS Ombud in the past three financial years, it is first appropriate to explain that the Office does not, as court of law, ‘hear’ matters and the matters that have been resolved in the period for which feedback has been requested, where decided on the on the papers, as it were. This is one of the key distinctions between this Office and the manner in which matters are adjudicated in a court of law even though this Office retains, largely, those functions available to a court when disposing of matters.

With that background in mind, the performance of the FAIS Ombud in the past three financial years, is detailed below and is provided in terms of the matters received in the applicable financial year as well as how the matters were resolved, that is by dismissal, settlement, referral or determination.

(i) 2014/2015 financial year

Number of new complaints received – 9 003.

Of the 9 003 complaints received, 3 699 complaints were justiciable.

How the complaints were resolved:

  1. Dismissed – 3 414
  2. Settled – 976
  3. Determined – 45
  4. Referred to other fora – 4 741

(ii) 2015/2016 financial year

Number of new complaints received – 9 891.

Of the 9 891 complaints received, 4 263 complaints were justiciable.

How the complaints were resolved:

  1. Dismissed – 3 409
  2. Settled – 1 150
  3. Determined – 24
  4. Referred to other fora – 4 706

(iii) 2016/2017 financial year

Number of new complaints received – 10 864.

Of the 10 864 complaints received, 5 630 complaints were justiciable.

How the complaints were resolved:

  1. Dismissed – 5 183
  2. Settled – 1005
  3. Determined – 68
  4. Referred to other fora – 4 769

(d) Original cost of setting up the office?

The information pertaining to the costs incurred in setting up the Office while available, could not be obtained in time to submit the response by the date requested. The information has been requested from the relevant authority, that is, from the board of the former Financial Services Board and will be provided made available to you on receipt thereof.

(e) The staffing structure of the FAIS Ombud is comprised firstly of the Ombud, as the accounting officer for the Office and is then divided into two structures or teams which are further subdivided. These teams are the technical team and the support team. The technical team comprises of the Adjudication Case Management and Case Administration departments while the support teams are the finance, IT, HR, office and risk management departments.

(f) The FAIS Ombud is located in Pretoria South Africa.

(g) The FAIS Ombud resolves those matters, described in the answer to question (b)(ii) in the manner prescribed by section 20(3) of the FAIS Act, namely through mediation, conciliation and arbitration. These methods employed by the FAIS Ombud are provided for in and approved by section 27 of the FAIS Act.

The FAIS Ombud delivers its services through the processes prescribed by the FAIS Act and as outlined in the Rules promulgated thereunder (the Rules on Proceedings of the Office of the Ombud for Financial Services Providers).

It is also worthwhile to note that the services of the FAIS Ombud are free and accessible. The accessibility of the Office is achieved in a number of ways, including, firstly, through not prescribing that complaints be couched in a manner that would otherwise marginalise or exclude certain groups of the populace through the use of legalese or technical language. In addition, accessibility is also achieved because the Office does not prescribe that complaints be lodged in a particular language but accepts complaints lodged in any of the official languages. Communication to stakeholders, which include complainants and financial services providers, is also pitched at an appropriate level with due regard of the intended recipient of the communication. The FAIS Ombud, in complying with the processes that must be observed in the provision of its services, thus maintains that its services are for people from all backgrounds and the manner in which it renders its services, fosters an environment that will realise the ethos of the organisation.

Steenkamp, Ms J to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs

(1)What are the details of her Department’s plans to deal with the tyre stockpile; (2) (a) has she found that dumping the tyres at depots solves the problem, (b) why is her Department only talking about the rate of diverting tyres from landfills instead of focusing on the rate of recycling tyres; and (3) what does the target of diverting 50% of all tyres from landfills in the 2018-19 financial year as set by her Department amount to, in tons?

Reply:

1. The stockpiles created by REDISA, as well as waste tyres collected from collection points, are sorted and pre-processed at depots prior to being delivered to processors and/or secondary industries. Stockpiles which do not fall within the category above (Historical waste tyre stockpiles) are dealt with in terms of Regulations 7, 8 and 9 of the Waste Tyre Regulations of 2017. Owners of Historical waste tyre stockpiles are expected to register with the Minister, as well as submit abatement plans to the Minister for approval.

2. (a) As explained above, in the absence of sufficient processing capacity, storage of waste tyres in depots does ensure that collection depots are continually serviced that waste tyres are removed from the environment and put in a controlled environment to minimise their impacts on the environment. There is no dumping of tyres happening.

(b) Diversion from landfill includes recycling.

3. The target of diverting 50% of tyres from landfills in the 2018-19 financial year amounts to 85 133 tons.

Reply:

Sections 3 and 6 and subsequent subsections of the Ministerial Handbook allows the Executive Members to be accompanied by their spouses or an adult family member instead of their spouses in their official journeys abroad at departmental expenses/costs. Yes, the Minister has been accompanied to a Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by her son and daughter (on separate occasions) as per the Ministerial Handbook.

Details of expenses incurred for such trips for the years in question form part of the departmental audited annual reports submitted to Parliament yearly.

All international trips for members of the executive are processed and approved by the State President.

Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Transport

How many kilometres of the national roads in each district municipality and province in the country have street lights?

Reply:

As most of the street lights on national roads within local authority areas are owned and maintained by the relevant local authority, SANRAL does not have the relevant details on its asset registers, and as such cannot report on these kilometres. However, for the street lights that are owned and maintained by SANRAL the information as requested is summarised in the tables below. These street lights are mostly located at SANRAL Toll Plaza’s, SANRAL Weighbridges, SANRAL Tunnels and SANRAL Interchanges and Freeway sections upgraded within the last 10 years.

Chief Albert Luthuli Local Municipality

Local Government

The partnership commenced in December 2017

The nature of the partnership is on road safety education, information sharing and law enforcement. The partnership is centered on the Border Towns Initiative that aims to assist towns/municipalities near the borders to take advantage of economic spin-off of cross-border movement of passengers and goods. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) covers road safety education, information sharing, cross-border ranking facilities and law enforcement. Road safety education mainly focuses on scholars who are prone to harsh road safety risks as they cross the N17 to and from school daily and often collide with transit traffic in the area. The area also experiences varying weather conditions, which further contribute to poor visibility. The objective is to increase awareness in the area.

The partnership costs to the C-BRTA are covered from the Agency’s operational budget to implement agreed upon initiatives covered in the partnership.

There are quarterly engagements with the Chief Albert Luthuli Local Municipality to track progress on the implementation plan of the MoU.

Power FM Radio station (MSG Group)

Once-off road safety dialogue hosted on the 25th May 2017

The dialogue was broadcasted live. The panel comprised of the Minister of Transport, CEO of RTIA, CEO of RTMC, Advocate Johan Jonck (Founder of Arrive Alive) a SANRAL Road Safety Engineer, and the programme was hosted by the Power FM DJ. In line with SANRAL’s Communications strategy and as part of the ongoing efforts to address road safety, the previous Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi, in partnership with SANRAL and Power FM participated in a road safety dialogue. This was to create awareness around road safety and road-user behaviour. This dialogue took place shortly after the horrific crash near Bronkhorstspruit where several pupils lost their lives. Through this initiative the department and SANRAL contributed to creating a much wider awareness about road safety and sought to appeal to the thousands of South Africans to heed the calls to change their behaviour on the roads to help reduce road fatalities. Listeners were provided an opportunity to call in and engage the panellists.

In the financial year 2017/2018, R399 000.00 was paid for the live radio dialogue.

Since its launch, Power 98.7 FM radio station was named the second most influential media platform in business in an analysis of the Agenda Setting Media (ASM), which was commissioned by Media Tenor SA.  The station also emerges as one of Google’s top 10 trending search lists of 2013 in the Zeitgeist rankings, as searched by South Africans.  These statistics proved Power FM to be a good media platform for SANRAL to create media partnerships and build media relationships as well as communicating salient road safety information to the public.

Road Accident Fund (RAF)

The FID referral to SAPS does not relate the matter back to the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, Act 12 of 2004, as amended, therefore the RAF keeps no records specific to referrals as contemplated in the question and is unable to respond to the remaining questions.

The RAF has various mechanisms in place to report criminal conduct and, or, misconduct. In addition to a Forensic Investigation Policy, the RAF has an Ethics Policy which provides for disclosures in terms of the Protected Disclosures Act, No. 26 of 2000. The FID is in charge of the Fraud Tip-off Line, through which criminal conduct and corruption can be confidentially reported. A duty is placed on employees, in several policies, to report suspicious activities to the FID, or anonymously through the Fraud Tip-off Line. FID statistics for the period 2012 to 2017 bears witness to the extent that fraud is experienced and managed by the organization and demonstrates the RAF’s commitment to combat fraud and corruption (refer to the table below):

11 June 2018 - NW1438

Profile picture: Mileham, Mr K

Mileham, Mr K to ask the Minister of Finance

Whether any investigations into the financial irregularities reported at the Venda Building Society Mutual Bank by the National Treasury have uncovered any payments made to individual lawyers or law firms as compensation and/or inducements for securing any municipal deposits for the bank; if so, (a) which lawyers and/or law firms have been identified and (b) what are the details of the (i) municipality, (ii) amount(s) deposited and (iii) amount(s) paid in compensation and/or inducements in each case?

Reply:

The National Treasury does not have criminal investigative powers over municipalities or individual persons, aside from the power to enforce or seek information in terms of the Municipal Finance Management Act, no 56 of 2003. The powers to investigate in this regard reside with specific financial regulators and the policing authorities. With regard to investigations related to VBS, the primary investigation by a financial regulator is one that is currently being conducted by the South African Reserve Bank. The policing authorities do not report to the National Treasury and we are not able to report on any progress with regard to any investigations they may be conducting.

The South African Reserve Bank has indicated to the National Treasury that its investigation is still in process, and they are not able to respond to the question at this stage. According to the South African Reserve Bank on 13 April 2018, the Deputy Governor of the South African Reserve Bank and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Prudential Authority (PA), Mr Kuben Naidoo, appointed Advocate T Motau SC as an investigator in terms of section 134 of the Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017 to conduct a forensic investigation into the affairs of VBS.

The primary objective of the investigation that will be conducted by Advocate T Motau SC is to establish whether:

1. any of the business of VBS was conducted with the intent to defraud depositors or other creditors of the bank, or for any other fraudulent purpose;

2. VBS’s business conduct involved questionable and/or reckless business practices or material non-disclosure, with or without the intent to defraud depositors and other creditors; and

3. there had been any irregular conduct by VBS’s shareholders, directors, executive management, staff, stakeholders and/or related parties.

Based on the findings of the forensic investigation, the National Treasury and other authorities will take appropriate follow-up action.

The investigation is at a sensitive stage and findings are being completed. Details of the findings will be made available to Parliament in due course.

11 June 2018 - NW1585

Profile picture: van der Westhuizen, Mr AP

van der Westhuizen, Mr AP to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)What (a) steps has her department taken to assist the Tshwane South Technical and Vocational Education and Training College in its efforts to address the challenges experienced over the past few years and improve the quality of management, teaching and learning at this institution and (b) has/have been identified as the cause(s) of the disruption and tensions experienced in the institution in the past; (2) what has she found still needs to be done to address the challenges experienced by the institution; (3) by what date is it expected for the actions and/or interventions to show the desired results; (4) whether she has found that there are staff members who have been caught in the middle of these tensions; if so, what will be done to protect their interests?

Reply:

(1) (a) To improve the quality of management, the Department has supported Tshwane South Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College in various ways through the Professional Development of Campus Managers Project and strengthening of management capacity at the sites of delivery. Two campus managers that were identified received training in Management and Leadership and a further four campus managers will undergo training in the 2018/19 financial year.

To improve teaching and learning, the Department assisted the college through the implementation of the Teaching and Learning Support Plans. The Department analysed the college’s readiness to provide quality teaching and learning focusing on seven critical areas, which amongst others, include classroom teaching and support, student assessment and in-house lecturer capacity development.

Concerning skills development, the Department has provided the college with skills levy funding for the 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 financial years. The college is required to submit training plans, and reports on training and development interventions carried out to improve the quality of management, teaching and learning.

The college reported that in 2016, 30 management staff, 105 lecturing staff and 71 support staff were trained in programmes relevant to their current job functions. In 2017, 54 management staff, 53 lecturing staff and 104 support staff were trained. So far, in 2018, 43 management staff, 46 lecturing staff and 54 support staff have been trained.

The Department has also developed a web-based Lecturer Support System wherein lecturers register as users and access training videos and other support material which they can download and use offline. To date, 259 lecturers and academic management staff at the college have registered as users on the LSS.

(b) Tensions and disruptions are experienced due to, amongst others, improper implementation of labour relations practices. Many of the tensions between management and staff, as well as between management and students, could be reduced through better management of labour relations, improved student governance, and improved students and staff work placement.

(2) Building good labour relations at a campus, i.e. training campus managers on the processes that are required to be put in place to avoid labour disputes. Building student centred campuses, i.e. training on the minimum standards required for effective campus teaching and learning; developing a campus learning culture and communication; planning for managing effective teaching and learning on a campus; implementing effective campus academic management; effective monitoring of teaching and learning by the campus manager; and feedback as a strategy to manage effective teaching and learning at a campus.

(3) It is expected for the actions and/or interventions to show the desired results progressively. The Department continues to monitor progress at the end of each trimester, semester and annually.

(4) The Department has not found any staff member to be in the middle of these tensions.
