With reference to the Finance and Accounting Services Sector Education and Training Authority SETA (FASSET SETA) which currently offers and operates the TVET Work-Based Experience Project Internship Scheme and the complaints that are being received from companies participating in this scheme that the FASSET SETA has failed to pay over the monthly internship stipends for May and June 2018 to the companies participating in the scheme and that the SETA is failing to answer queries in this regard, (a) what problems are being experienced by the FASSET SETA in paying the monthly TVET Work-Based Experience Project Internship Scheme stipend to companies participating in this scheme, (b) what is the root cause of the specified problem and (c) what is being done to resolve the matter?

Reply:

a) The Finance and Accounting Services Sector Education and Training Authority (FASSET) processes payments within 30 days as required in terms of the National Treasury Regulation 8.2.3. Currently, there are no outstanding payments. FASSET uses the reimbursement model for the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Work-Based Experience Project whereby the employer pays a stipend to interns and thereafter submits an invoice together with the following supporting documents to FASSET:

  • Monthly report;
  • Learner payslip; and
  • Proof of payment.

In some cases, employers do not submit all the required documentation on time, which leads to payment delays because FASSET is unable to process an invoice without the accompanying supporting documentation.

b) Not applicable.

c) FASSET is currently reviewing the “reimbursement model” of paying employers who are part of the TVET Work-Based Experience Project as some employers experience cash flow problems when they are required to pay stipends to interns.

Reply:

a) The Inter-Ministerial Task Team identified 12 municipalities in the North West that were deemed to be under tremendous distressed to be prioritized for dedicated support. The approach of support at these 12 municipalities focuses on the 3 priority areas, namely:

(i) Governance – audit outcomes; unauthorised, irregular and fruitless and wasteful expenditure; internal control and oversight environment; filling of critical senior managers positions in compliance with regulations, implementation of forensic reports that were conducted also conducting investigations in terms of section 106 of the Municipal Systems Act; strengthen political and administrative interface; quality of political leadership and institutionalisation of the Code of Conduct for Councillors and Officials as provided for in schedule 1 and 2 of the Municipal Systems Act in order to address accountability and consequence management.

(ii) Service delivery – infrastructure planning, delivery and implementation management; priority action plans for Water Services Authority to address operational vulnerabilities including maintenance and refurbishment; resolve roles and responsibilities between district and local municipalities with respect to the water and sanitation function by reviewing the existing Service Level Agreements (SLA); accelerate spending on Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) to improve service delivery.

(iii) Financial management – budget management, cash control, debtor management, revenue enhancement, supply chain management and development of financial recovery plans.

(b) Subsequently, the Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs issued a directive in terms of section 100(1)(a) to the MEC for Local Government and Human Settlement to make corrective measures regarding the weakness and shortcomings of the Department’s failure to approve and implement the organizational structure for the past five year. Due to lack of adequate capacity, the Department had also failed to provide support to the 22 municipalities. This was affirmed by the recent Auditor-General’s reports, that showed that North West province is the third highest amongst provinces with the worst performing municipalities.

As part of implementation of the directive, the MEC for Local Government and Human Settlement, on 12 June 2018, issued a directive to all 22 municipalities in terms of section 139(1)(a) of the Constitution. Mayors were directed to implement and prioritize corrective measures and report to the MEC on monthly basis the following critical areas:

  1. Post Audit Action Plans.
  2. Appointment of senior managers.
  3. Acceleration of spending on infrastructure grants.
  4. Development of financial recovery plans,
  5. Review bloated municipal organizational structures.
  6. Implementation of Back to Basics Support Plans and
  7. Improve service delivery to communities to curb service delivery protest.

Reply:

(1) (i) Yes, I have been advised that my predecessor was accompanied by a family member between 22 September 2013 and 26 February 2018. This was done in accordance with the Ministerial Handbook: Handbook for Members of the Executive and Presiding Officers. Section 3.1 and 3.2 of the Ministerial Handbook state that, “Members (of the Executive) and their spouses (or an adult family member accompanying the Member in official capacity) are entitled to first class travel for official purposes at the expense of the Department concerned. The costs for official journeys abroad by Members, and their spouses or adult family members accompanying them in official capacity, are for the account of the relevant Department”.

(aa) With respect to the request to provide names, the Honourable Member would recall that there is an established practise applicable to parliamentary questions contained in the document titled, “Guide to Parliamentary Questions in the National Assembly. The document referred to prohibits Members of Parliament, including the Executive, from divulging names of persons, bodies when asking or responding to parliamentary questions. It specifically states the following:

Questions are to be framed as concisely as possible. All unnecessary adjectives, references and quotations are omitted. Names of persons, bodies and, for example, newspapers are only used in questions if the facts surrounding the case have been proven. As the mere mention of such names could be construed as publicity for or against them, it should be clear that this practice is highly undesirable. If a question will be unintelligible without mentioning such names, the Departments concerned are notified of the name (-s) and this phrase is used: ".......a certain person (name furnished)”

(bb) The information requested by the Honourable Member is provide in the table below:

Whether the oil-drilling rig currently anchored in Mossel Bay is hired by PetroSA; if so, (a) for what purpose, (b) from which date to which date is the lease agreement, (c) what is the amount for the term of the lease agreement, (d) from which date to which date is the oil-drilling rig in operation, (e) who is the owner of the oil-drilling rig and (f) from which date to which date will it be anchored in Mossel Bay; (2) whether PetroSA has any obligations regarding support and maintenance of the oil-drilling rig; if so, (a) what are the relevant details of the support and maintenance thereof and (b) what is the monthly cost thereof; (3) whether he will make a statement on the matter? NW981E]

Reply:

The oil production facility that is anchored in Mossel Bay is owned and managed by PetroSA. The vessel is not an oil drilling rig but an oil production facility, called the Orca. The facility resembles an oil drilling rig because it was converted from an oil drilling rig to become an oil production facility. The monthly costs to maintain the ORCA in its current location is approximately R2 million.

In light of the fact that the Waste Management Bureau has been advertising jobs and tenders for 5 year durations, has her department’s mandate changed after informing the parliamentary committee in 2017 that its mandate during the transitional phase and before a new manager(s) is appointed for the industry is between three months and one year?

Reply:

No, the mandate of the department has not changed.

The mandate of the Waste Management Bureau is outlined in the National Environmental Management Waste Amendment Act, Act 26 of 2014 (NEMWAA). Part 7A, Section 34A of NEMWAA refers to the establishment of the Waste Management Bureau.

Section 34D relates to some of the objects of the Waste Management Bureau as listed below.

“34D. The objects of the Bureau are to—

(a) function as a specialist implementing agent within the Department in respect of matters delegated to the Bureau in terms of this Act;

(b) promote and facilitate minimisation, re-use, recycling and recovery of waste;

The presentation to the committee reflected on a transitional phase in the management of waste tyre operations. It was indicated that National Treasury gave an approval for the appointment of service providers that had been contracted through Recycling & Economic Development Initiative of SA (REDISA) without following an open tender for a maximum period of twelve (12) months.

Contracts were subsequently entered into for 3-12 months period. All contracts are coming to an end on 30 September 2018 and the Bureau is following an open competitive process to ensure continuity and improve the management of waste tyres in South Africa.

Waters, Mr M to ask the Minister of Home Affairs

(1) With regard to his reply to question 839 on 17 April 2018, where he states that the details of the complainant in the matter is currently unknown to the Commission, why did the Electoral Commission of South Africa not file a complaint in relation to the Public Protector’s report; (2) whether he has found that the Commission complied with section 34 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, Act 12 of 2004; if not, how was this conclusion reached; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The question was referred to the Electoral Commission which responded as follows:

1. A hitherto unknown complainant filed a complaint with the Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigations (DPCI). The Commission became aware that a complaint had been lodged whilst it was still considering the report of the Public Protector and when some of its officials were being interviewed as part of the DPCI investigation.

2. Having noted that a complaint had already been laid and that an investigation was already under way, the Commission regarded the reporting required under section 34 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act (POCCA), Act 12 of 2004 as no longer needing its further consideration as the investigation in terms of section 22 of the POCCA Act had already commenced.

Therefore, job numbers are reported in aggregate. Only the Renewable Energy Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) has commenced with construction and operation of IPP projects. Under the REIPPP Programme a total number of 112 projects have been procured and it is envisaged that these projects will create 114 266 job years over the construction and 20 year operations period. A job year is equivalent to a full time employment opportunity for one person for one year.

Mhlongo, Mr TW to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs

Whether any municipal water pipelines intersect with the Sasol gas lines (a) within the Nasrec precinct and/or (b) in any other location next to the FNB Stadium; if so, (i) what are the consequences of the intersection, (ii) does the intersection cause an unsafe environment and (iii) what will be done to remedy the problem?

Reply:

According to the information received from the City of Johannesburg, municipal water pipelines do intersect with the Sasol gas lines:

(a) Within the Nasrec precinct; and

(b) In other locations next to the FNB Stadium.

(i) The only possible consequence, because of intersecting municipal water pipelines and Sasol gas lines, would occur when maintenance and/or construction occurs where there is a possibility of damage to the other pipeline, which would require repairs. The City of Johannesburg has its own gas mains and is therefore knowledgeable about what needs to be done in the case of an accident.

(ii) Yes, the intersection can, to a minimal extent, cause an unsafe environment in the event of an accident. The City of Johannesburg has assured COGTA that it would know what to do in the case of an accident.

(iii) The two organizations will exchange as-built drawings indicating where their pipelines are.

Alberts, Adv A to ask the Minister of Finance

(1)How did the Public Investment Corporation and the Government Employees Pension Fund’s Board justify the passing of a resolution to borrow R50 billion to Eskom, given that all three rating agencies have graded Eskom to junk status; (2) what are the criteria for justifying such high risk funding; (3) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

(1) At the outset it should be stated that the amount that was borrowed to Eskom is not R50 billion. The PIC advanced a loan of R5 billion to Eskom because it was within the PIC’s client mandate. The existence of a guarantee by the South African Government on the bridging facility was an overriding factor in the wake of Eskom credit rating downgrades. See further detail under item 2 below.

(2) The investment was duly considered in terms of the Mandate of the Client as well as the PIC’s Investment Policy and Delegation of Authority, and is justifiable on the following grounds:

Character of the loan

The loan to Eskom was in the form of short-term bridging facility for one month. The pricing on the facility was relatively attractive at Jibar plus 75 basis points, translating to 7.65% for a period of one month. Over and above this, there was an undertaking from the government of South Africa to provide a guarantee on the loan facility. The borrower had provided satisfactory evidence that Eskom had secured financial commitments to meet all of the borrower’s funding requirements up to March 2019. It is important to note that Eskom paid the principal amount of R5 billion in full plus the interest amount on 28 February 2018.

Governance

In approving the loan facility, the PIC also took comfort from the fact that National Treasury, the Department of Public Enterprises and Eskom jointly developed a going-concern plan, seeking to address the challenges faced by Eskom. There was also confirmation that all required approvals had been obtained for Eskom to appoint a permanent Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.

(3) No. The PIC issued a joint statement with the Government Employees Pension Fund to announce the decision to advance the R5 billion loan to Eskom. The repayment of the loan was also widely covered by the media.

  • Investigators of SARS Fraud Investigations constantly monitor the progress of all criminal cases referred by the unit to the SAPS.

04 July 2018 - NW1080

Profile picture: Dlamini, Mr MM

Dlamini, Mr MM to ask the Minister of Finance

(1)(a) On what date was a certain person (name furnished) appointed as a member of the Transitional Management Team (TMT) of the Financial Sector Conduct Authority and (b) what are the specific details of his involvement in the process; (2) was there an advert that was published calling for nominations of persons to the TMC; if not, (a) what processes and legal provisions were followed in the appointment of the specified person and (b) who made the recommendation to him to appoint the specified person; if so, on what date was the advert published; (3) (a) on what date was the specified person appointed as a consultant for the National Treasury and (b) what was the duration of the contract; (4) has the specified contract ever been renewed; if so, (a) how many times and when was it renewed, (b) what were the financial implications of renewing the contract and (c) what is the total amount that the National Treasury has paid to the specified person since the appointment as a consultant?

Reply:

1. (a) On 1 April 2018, when all members of the TMT were appointed. Note that all appointments are only for a limited period, specified in the Regulations as three months after a new Commissioner is appointed, which is expected to be within six months of the date of establishment of the Financial Sector Conduct Authority.

(b) The person was appointed in terms of section 3(1)(b)(iii) of the Regulations published in terms of Financial Sector Regulation Act No 9 of 2017, and Gazetted in Gazette No. 10814 on 29 March 2018. The role of the Minister is as outlined in the Regulations which is to nominate a suitable person.

2. (a) No. The TMT is merely a temporary arrangement pending the appointment of a full-time Commissioner and Deputy Commissioners of the FSCA. The process to appoint the full-time Commissioner and Deputy Commissioners includes an advert calling for applications. The advert was first published on the Treasury website and in selected print newspapers on 8 April 2018. The process for appointing the TMT is specified in Regulations published in terms of Financial Sector Regulation Act No 9 of 2017 and Gazetted in Gazette No. 10814 on 29 March 2018.

(b) The Minister generally seeks the advice of his officials, and in this case, approved the recommendation made by the Director-General of the National Treasury. The recommendation was made based on the person’s extensive involvement in the Twin Peaks reform process, including in developing a draft market conduct policy framework as per the discussion document published in 2014, and in the development of the Financial Sector Regulation Act over the time period 2013 to enactment in 2017.

(3) (a) and (b) Similar information was asked of the Minister of Finance by the EFF in Parliamentary Question NW 168, a comprehensive response was provided. The specified person was first appointed as a Specialist Consultant in Financial Sector Policy on 1 August 2011 for a contract period of 12 months with the option to extend the contract if required. The consultant had previously worked at NT as an employee within the financial sector policy chief directorate prior to this appointment. The contract primarily related to the repeal and replacement of the Securities Services Act and promulgation of new Financial Markets Act and revision of Regulation 28 of Pension Funds Act. Due to extended parliamentary process a two-month contract extension was approved with no additional fees being paid. This process followed all the supply chain rules for a single source technical assistance contracting process.

(4) (a) No, the first contract (as described above) was not renewed. The consultant was subsequently appointed through a new contract from 1 March 2013, over two periods of 24 months each, to establish a policy and legal framework for the new Twin Peaks model, focusing on the policy framework for the coming market conduct regulator, especially to treat financial customers more fairly. This contract was extended by a final 12-month period up to the 31 March 2018, augmented by additional services required, as the Twin Peaks legislation took longer than anticipated to be processed in Parliament. These additional services included but were not limited to the finalisation of a national financial inclusion education policy and monitoring the over-indebtedness project. This process followed all the supply chain rules for a single source technical assistance contracting process. The successive contracts were due to delays in processes, including parliamentary processes to approve the Financial Sector Regulation Bill.

(b) and (c) She has been paid in accordance with DPSA rates for this type of work and at the work level. It should be noted that this approach was significantly more cost efficient than hiring an external consultancy company to do the necessary research, and support the department during the parliamentary process to approve the bill.
