Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport

What are the reasons that she issued notices of intent to dismiss certain persons (names furnished) from their positions as board members of the Airports Company South Africa?

Reply:

Airports Company South Africa SOC Limited (ACSA)

The decision was made based on a Board Evaluation Report and Skills Matrix as commissioned by the Board with a view to identify skills gaps within the Board, and consequently to capacitate the Board to enable it to properly discharge its duties to the best interest of the organization. The said analysis wasmapped against the requirements of Board Composition from the Institute of Directors South Africa (IODSA) together with the requirements of the Company within its sphere of operation.

The retired directors either did not respond to the request to furnish their skills set or areas of development for the purposes of the skills analysis; or did not have the required skills and/or did not furnish all the requested information.

1. The migration from a manual based system to the state of the art interoperable electronic payment system has been in the making for the past 15 years. The objectives for this system includes benefits such as reduced instances of fraud/misuse of card based concessions, ease of use (top ups) and registration, efficient monitoring of transactions with the objective to increase levels of service and in terms of throughput the system enables the processing of three times the current traffic volumes at plazas. Due to the interoperability achieved in South Africa, a user only needs to register an account once, fit a single electronic tag in a vehicle, and maintain this single account. This will allow the user usage at all plazas in South Africa except the Chapmans Peak toll road. Making payment electronically is in accordance with best international practices, and significantly reduced delays to road users at toll plazas. It also reduces the need for expansions of existing toll plazas, due to increased efficiency and throughput of an electronic toll collection lane, vs a manual toll collection lane. The electronic payment system will ensure existing concession holders not only continue to enjoy the discounts but their transaction will be more efficient and secure.

(i) The SANRAL Act allows for electronic toll collection/payment.

(ii)  The operational decision to implement electronic (Tag) payment was taken by N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) to improve the throughput of traffic at its toll plazas, alleviate congestion and improve transaction security. The ultimate purpose of the measure is to promote increased mobility and convenience, as well as enhance the travel experience of all road users, including Concession holders.

Introducing the choice of migrating a concession account to the Tag payment method is one of the ways in which N3TC is introducing additional security to the transaction environment. Possible card usage fraud, including theft and cloning, are amongst the issues this solution is intended to address.

As a result of stakeholder engagement, the decision was taken to retain existing payment methods and introduce the Tag as just another payment method.

In accordance with the terms and conditions, information, including Frequently Asked Questions, has been circulated to affected parties informing them of the pending changes. Social media, direct emailers, SMSs and posters have been used for the dissemination of information during the course of the past 12 months.

iii) All administration to implement the change is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer. This automated payment system is linked nationwide to SANRAL’s Transaction Clearing House (TCH) which manages all Tag transactions on South Africa’s national toll routes, including the N3 Route.

(2) Should a concession account holder choose to migrate their account to the Tag payment method, all administration required to implement the change to a Tag payment method is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer.

N3TC will continue to administer concessions on the N3 Toll Route.

Yes, all administration to implement the change is facilitated by N3 Toll Concession at no additional cost to the customer.

This automated payment system is linked nationwide to SANRAL’s Transaction Clearing House (TCH) which manages all Tag transactions on South Africa’s national toll routes, including the N3 Route.

(3) Toll fees are payable in terms of the applicable tariff charged (including all discounts) at a specific toll plaza and cannot expunge another toll at a different toll plaza. In terms of the TCH, which is a central transaction clearing house, users have an account which they top-up via various channels. The monies in that account is used for payment of specific electronic toll transactions.

Concession holders’ toll fees collected via the Tag payment method are also automatically deducted from the vehicle owner’s registered TCH Account. The user has the benefit that the tag will work at all toll plazas in South Africa which accept the Tag payment method, provided the Tags are active, is in the vehicle and that the registered TCH Account shows a positive balance.

It is important to note that historic balances relating to transactions incurred on the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (“GFIP”), which have been transferred to the Violations Processing Centre (“VPC”), are handled independently of this registered TCH Account. Thus, none of the funds deposited into the registered TCH Account are used to clear any outstanding VPC debt. However, road users remain liable for transactions incurred on GFIP during the Grace Period (currently 30 days per the Government Gazette), and these will be deducted from the TCH Account.

The manner in which toll fees are collected via the existing traditional payment methods, remains unchanged. None of these toll fees are allocated to a Concession customer’s TCH Account unless the migration to a Tag payment option has been chosen.

(4) Traditional payment methods shall remain unchanged and concession holders will have the option to migrate to the new system.

It must be noted that the process to implement the electronic payment system commenced 18 months ago, for the past 12 months there has been ongoing engagement with concession holders and this has resulted in a substantial transition period.

(1)(a) What categories of tax are levied against the price of flight tickets only and (b) in each case, what is the (i) total annual income generated for (aa) her department and (bb) the Airports Company SA and (ii) tax income split between (aa) domestic and (bb) international air travel in South Africa; (2) how much will (a) domestic and (b) international air ticket prices be increased as a result of the proposed carbon dioxide tax?

Reply:

 

1. (a) Airports Company South Africa levies airport charges in the form of Passenger Service Charges (PSC) that are collected by airlines through air tickets.  The PSC is levied for the provision of passenger facilitation and infrastructure services at Airports Company South Africa’s airports.

(b) The PSC differ based on the route destination and can be split between the International PSC (R346 currently, to be reduced to R223 from 1 April 2017), the Regional PSC (R263 currently, to be reduced to R169 from 1 April 2017) and the Domestic PSC (R127 currently, to be reduced to R82 from 1 April 2017).

(i) Total annual income:

(aa)  Department of Transport – None;

(bb) Airports Company South Africa – R3.1 billion (2016 financial year).

(i) PSC Split (annual for 2016 financial year):

(aa)  Domestic:  R1.5 billion;

(bb) International:  R1.6 billion.

2. (a)  The amount of the proposed carbon tax will be determined by the National Treasury. Domestic airlines will determine how to filter the amount to the passengers. It is not possible to determine at this point how much a domestic air ticket price will be increased as a result of the proposed carbon tax.

(b) The proposed carbon tax will not apply to international aviationand therefore will not have a bearing on international air ticket prices.

Krumbock, Mr GR to ask the Minister of Transport

(1)Whether the new N3 route between Van Reenen Pass in KwaZulu-Natal and Warden in the Free State has been (a) decided upon and (b) duly authorised yet; if not, why not in each case; if so, what are the (a) details of the route that has been authorised, (b) budgeted costs for construction, (c) proposed funding sources for the construction, (d) details of any proposed (i) additional and/or (ii) increased tolls payable by motorists using the route and (e) details of the construction timelines, including all preparation work such as the supply-chain processes; (2) has a cost-benefit analysis been conducted for the proposed new route; if not (a) why not and (b) by what date will such an analysis be conducted; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. (a) At its meeting of 5 October 2016, the Political Heads of the PICC’s SIP 2 Committee endorsed the recommendation tabled for the selection of a preferred alternative for the improvement of the N3 Van Reenen Pass. It was also at this meeting where the Minister of Transport confirmed her decision to return to the drawing board the De Beers Pass project, in view of the serious concerns raised by various stakeholders in the Free State province. As such going forward the new project will be called the N3 Van Reenen Development.

(b) (a) (b) The Department is finalising an official instruction to SANRAL in this regard. SANRAL will be required to conduct a detailed investigation and costing of this preferred option along with its variations. The output of this process will be submitted to the Minister of Transport and the PICC for consideration.

(c) The existing concession contract was structured to make provision for the development of the De Beers Pass. This financial provision will now be made available to fund the new preferred option. In the event that the costing in (b)above exceeds this financial provision within the Concession contract, the Minister of Transport working in conjunction with the PICC, National Treasury and the Free State Province will determine the best funding model to cover the funding shortfall. This is imperative as neither the concession contract nor SANRAL will be able to carry the additional costs.

(d) (i)(ii) This process will be informed by the process stipulated in (b) above, and will be communicated in due course. It must be noted that the De Beers Pass was modelled not to result in additional toll tariffs.

(e) This is dependent on (b) above, which is envisaged to take a minimum of 12 months. It also depends on the environmental requirements of the preferred option, the resolution of any funding shortfall that may arise, securing the necessary licenses for water use and quarrying and the bidding process. Nonetheless, actual construction is not expected to start before 2020.

2. This will be covered in above. The timelines are as stipulated in (e) above.

(1)Have any vehicle testing stations been found not to have complied with legislative requirements in the (a) 2013-14, (b) 2014-15 and (c) 2015-16 financial years; if so, in each case, (i) which stations and (ii) on what date; (2) whether any of the specified vehicle testing stations have been closed; if not, what are the reasons in this regard; if so, on what date; (3) (a) what are the reasons for the inconsistent application of standards in each province and (b) what action is her department taking to address this issue?

Reply:

(1) Yes. The detail of question (1) is dealt with in Tables 1, 2 and 3 attached as Annexure A, B and C. For the sake of clarity, a TS 4 Recommendation refers to a warning issued to the vehicle testing station as a result of unresolved findings against the vehicle testing station. A TS5 recommendation refers to recommendation for suspension as a result of continuous unresolved findings.

(2) The detail of question (2) is dealt with in Tables 1, 2 and 3 attached as Annexure A, B and C:

(3) (a) In terms of the National Road Traffic Act, Act 93 of 1996, Motor vehicle registration, testing and licensing remains the responsibility of the applicable MEC in a province. With it comes the responsibility to provide services in this regard. In terms of the legislation the Inspectorate for Testing Stations must make recommendations to the MEC in terms of the compliance of vehicle testing stations in the province. It remains the prerogative of the MECs to make their own decisions with regard to the recommendations.

(b)In order to harmonize the implementation of legislation and standards, the Department has encouraged provincial participation in the Vehicle Technical Committee and Legislation Forums. Furthermore, legislation is going to be amended to ensure that the requirements are standardized.

Reply:

1. I am informed that the furthermore, as the investigations are still underway and in putting the interest of the company first, the Board decided not to put Mr Maseko on suspension, but imposed stringent conditions during this period at work

2. (a)The Board has adopted the findings and recommendations of the Report to conduct further investigations on some of the allegations with a view to institute disciplinary proceedings. Where recommended, the Board is in the process of reporting any criminal acitivity to the South African Police Service. In addition, certain implicated individuals have been placed on suspension pending the said further investigation.

(b) (i) and (ii): The timelines and deadlines for the period of suspension and finalisation of the further investigations is 3 February 2017.

3. (a) and (b): Yes, there are processes and mechanisms in place to ensure recommendations are executed. Furthermore investigations into the recommendations are underway; the process of reporting criminal activity to the South African Police Services is underway and suspension of certain individuals, where warranted, has been executed. The Board has further delegated to some of its members some of the actions to be taken to ensure the execution of the findings and recommendations, subject to due process, and as per applicable legal prescripts.

4. (a) and (b): All recommendations have been adopted by the board save for one part regarding the City Lodge contract of 2007 to discipline the then Tender Board and Executives. The reason being that due to the passage of time, most of the individuals mentioned are no longer in the employ of the company and further, that the reversal of that contract would not be in the interest of the Company, nor will it make commercial sense to do so.

South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL)

1(a) criteria were used to approve

(i) salaries

  • The Board uses comprehensive Market Surveys to determine the appropriate level for each pay grade, with a minimum and maximum per grade. The grade and adjustments includes consideration for inflation (including medical aid inflation), scarce skills, qualification and experience. Individual pay adjustments are based on performance or merit ratings.

(ii) bonuses

The current SANRAL Short Term Incentive (STI) policy, was introduced and approved by the SANRAL Board in 2012, after the pilot in 2011. This policy specifically abandoned the subjective discretionary bonus regime used since 1998. The policy takes the following principles into account:

a. The organisation as a whole has to perform above a specified minimum in terms of the Annual Performance Plan, in order to be eligible.

b. An individual has to score at least a 3 (5 point scale) merit rating to be eligible for a bonus

c. Four tiers of measurable performance was identified: Organisation, Region, Cluster and individual.

d. Each region and cluster has to perform above a specified level, per their identified measurable criteria, in order for that region or cluster to qualify for a score in that tier. The criteria is directly linked to the SANRAL strategic objectives.

e. Each grade participates in various weighting on the tiers depending on their opportunity to influence the tier.

This formula and all the supporting documentation or proof to determine the scores for each performance rating is reviewed in detail by Internal Audit before the payment is made. Once payment is made, this is checked against the calculated values for errors. The Auditor General then reviews during their normal annual audit the same process. On every tier, each performance criteria has to comply with the principles of “SMART” criteria, which leaves little room for subjectivity.

Individual performance contracts, which also includes performance criteria, signed annually between each individual and his/her line manager and submitted to HR for recordkeeping. This process is also audited by the AG in great detail. An individual will receive a merit rating, annually, which is then used as follows:

a. Adjust annual salary (also formula based), effective from 1 March each year.

b. Included in the formula to determine STI bonus, which is paid after the Annual Financial Statements and Performance information is signed off by the AG, normally in September.

(b) procedures exist to verify that the specified criteria were (i) used and (ii) followed in the (aa) 2013-14, (bb) 2014-15 and (cc) 2015-16 financial years;

The processes are audited internally and externally by the AG.

(1)Whether any income generated by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) was transferred to the National Revenue Fund via her department since 1 April 2007, in line with the National Treasury’s 2007 Practice Note; if not, in each case, why not; if so, what amount of income generated by the RTMC was transferred to the National Revenue Fund during the specified period; (2) whether any income from transaction fees paid by the RTMC to the National Revenue Fund were claimed back by (a) her department and/or (b) the RTMC since1 April 2007; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether any decision was taken at any stage to stop the transfer of income generated by the RTMC to the National Revenue Fund, contrary to the specified Practice Note, in order to assist the Electronic National Traffic Information System to become self-funded; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) why, (b) what are the relevant details and (c) what steps has the RTMC taken to rectify the situation; (4) howwill the budget allocation of the RTMC in the 2016-17 financial year be affected by the payment to Tasima as per the court order and the undertaking in her department’s 2015-16 annual report that the RTMC is to reimburse her department for having made this payment?

Reply:

1. The matter relating to transferring of the income generated by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) to the revenue fund was laid to rest by the FFC resolution. We attached the FFC resolution for ease of reference.

2. The RTMC is a creature of statute and any monies generated and or income made by the corporation is regulated by the act that established the Corporation. It is therefore prudent to consider the resolution of the FFC as attached above.

3. The FFC resolution attached offer an explanation in relation to these matters.

4. The payment to Tasima post 2012 was per the various court orders against the department and no court order was ever made against the RTMC for the payment of theeNaTIS to the Tasima. Therefore there could be no legal ground or basis on which RTMC can be made to reimburse the monies paid.

Did (a) her department and/or (b) any entity reporting to her conduct feasibility studies on Vuwani Airport in Limpopo, which is not in operation and remains a white elephant; if not, (i) why not and (ii) who is responsible for the maintenance of the specified airport?

Reply:

(a) The National Department of Transport has not conducted feasibility studies on Vuwani Airport in Limpopo.

(b) The Limpopo Department of Transport has conducted a pre-feasibility study for the Vuwani/P.R. Mphephu Airport during 2010. The study was part of the Limpopo Airlift Strategy, with the purpose of providing direction and guidance for the development of aviation in the province. Five generic strategies were identified in determining the status of each of the airports considered at the time, as follows:

1. Grounded: Nothing should be done as there is no, or very little potential, now or in the future, for aviation development.

2. Delayed: The development of aviation will only take place in the long term and is awaiting other matters to be put in place.

3. Boarding: There is some market potential, which should be left to the market to action and develop.

4. Take-off: There is good market potential which would be picked up by the market with minimum intervention.

5. Catapulted Take-off: There is market potential, but the development of aviation will only take place with significant intervention from government.

The Vuwani/P.R Mphephu Airport fell within the third category. The Limpopo Department of Transport decided to wait a few years so that further analysis could be done on the Vuwani/P.R Mphephu Airport as well as the other public airports within the province. Such analysis will consider developments that are taking place at, amongst others, Lephalale, Musina and its SEZ status, and the Tubatse area.

The Limpopo Department of Transport is currently collaborating with the Department of Public Enterprises in determining if some of these airports can be re-commissioned and the extent of improvements that are required to enable re-commissioning.  The Limpopo Aviation Technical Stream has been established and various meetings have already been held. The Province is currently developing the Terms of References for the viability assessment, which should be conducted no later than the 2017/2018 financial year. This will provide an indication if P.R. Mphephu Airport will be viable and the costs associated with its re-commissioning, should the indication be positive. Other options will be explored depending on the outcome of the viability study.

(b) (i) N/A

     (ii) The airport is an asset of the Limpopo Department of Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure, although the buildings are utilised by the Limpopo Department of Transport. The Limpopo Department of Transport has not allocated any maintenance budget pending the outcome of the viability study.

Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport

What (a) are the full reasons for the recent erection of stop signs on the N12 between the R28 and R558 at Zuurbekom in the Westonaria Local Municipality in Gauteng, (b) traffic impact studies were undertaken (i) to ascertain the necessity for the stop signs and (ii) since the erection of the stop signs, (c) were the results of each of the impact studies in each case and (d) were the costs involved in erecting the stop signs?

Reply:

a) The N12 West route from Naturena in Johannesburg to the Northwest Province border at Fochville has been identified as the most fatal major route in Gauteng. The intersections in the Zuurberkom area have been identified as the most hazardous locations (HAZLOCs) on the N12. The factors that contribute to the dangers at these intersections include the following:

  • Excessive speed on the N12, especially since the recent rehabilitation of the road. Traffic speed monitoring has indicated that almost 40% of vehicles are travelling above the speed limit of 80km/h in this area;
  • High volumes of long trucks and other slow moving traffic crossing the N12, especially in the areas adjacent to the silos;
  • The area adjacent to the N12 in the Zuurberkom area that is developing, resulting in high volumes of pedestrians and cyclists crossing the N12’
  • Reckless and inconsiderate drivers behaviours;
  • High accident rates and fatalities in the Zuurberkom area, especially after the completion of the road rehabilitation (the number of fatalities had more than doubled from 2015 to 2016)

The installation of 4way stops at these intersections has been identified as the most appropriate measure to address these problem at these stage. In the longer term the installation of traffic signals at these intersections will be considered.

b) (i) Yes, traffic studies, investigations and inspections were undertaken by the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport and the Gauteng Department of Community Safety in consultation with the local law enforcement agencies as part of the West Rand Rims (road accident management system)

(ii) Yes, the situation is being monitored closely and regular inspections are being carried out.

c) The study confirmed the need for the 4-way stop and indicated the need for further measures such as overhead lighting, rumble strips and continuous traffic law enforcement in this area

d) No separate record of the costs for the instillation were kept as they were installed as part of the routine maintenance activities.

Mulaudzi, Adv TE to ask the Minister of Transport

In light of the unsuccessful implementation of the e-tolling of freeways in the Gauteng Province, what measures is she putting in place to ensure that the Government cancels e-tolling and seeks other means to fund the cost?

Reply:

There is no decision to cancel e-tolling which is part of the User Pay Policy.

It must be noted that the Department will continue implementing the current policy, the “User Pay” which is also a norm in the whole world and will proceed with exploring other infrastructure financing models that would alleviate pressure on the fiscus, but get good level of service of all categories of our road network.

It is not true that the e-tolling of the GFIP is unsuccessful in its implementation, we need to address the issue of civil disobedience and allow law enforcement agencies to play their part.

REPLY

AIRPORT COMPANY SOUTH AFRICA (ACSA)

Date

Description

Conclusion

20 May 2011

“I would like to report that there was a tender irregularity with the awarding of the Office automation tender to a Supplier. The current CEO, of Supplier, is a blood relative to one of your ACSA employees, Group Specialist - Procurement Services. In the tender document, this relationship was not declared as per terms and requirements stated. Secondly, this Supplier was given an opportunity to re-submit pricing whilst other vendors were not given that opportunity.”

No adverse findings and the investigation was closed and feedback sent to whistleblower.

20 October 2011

This memo relates to the approved investigations related to the note sent to one of the ACSA Debtors allegedly by an ACSA to change the ACSA Bank details into which the Debtor should pay the amounts due. The email was received on the 20th October 2011.

No ACSA employee was found to have been implicated and there was no loss of cash as the scam was unsuccessful.

Note: A company-wide investigation on the state of payments and possible irregularities was launched using Deloitte during 2012.

29 May 2011

This memo relates to the investigations undertaken as a response to the email received from Marelize Labuschagne on 29th April 2011. The author suspected that there might have been an “internal link” on the fraudulent payments to a Business Connection’s Standard Bank Account.

No ACSA employee was found to have been implicated and there was no loss of cash.

Note: A company-wide investigation on the state of payments and possible irregularities was launched using Deloitte during 2012.

21 November 2011

A payment effected by ACSA SSC on the 31st Oct to the account of Cura Risk management Software (Pty) Ltd to the value of R123, 594.92 was made to fraudulent bank details.

The bank details were submitted to ACSA SSC on 25th August 2010 – reflected as Absa Bank.

No loss of cash by ACSA.

The above was reported to SAPS ref: CAS 193/11/2011 on 17/11/2011 at OR Tambo.

Note: A company-wide investigation on the state of payments and possible irregularities was launched using Deloitte during 2012.

20 June 2011

An anonymous call was logged on the Tip-Offs Anonymous Hotline on the 20th of June 2011 whereby the following allegations were made regarding the maintenance of the Public Address system tender at O.R. Tambo International Airport (ORTIA).

Internal Audit could thus not find any conclusive evidence which would indicate that the process was not equitable and transparent.

01 August 2012

This investigation was referred to Internal Audit by the Group Executive: Commercial on 01 August 2012. This request came about after a tender (IDA/11/11) of the ORTIA Arts, Crafts and Curio Retail Stores was cancelled and notifications to this effect dated 20 March 2012 were sent to the two Bidders.

The bases used for the cancellation of the Tender were valid as per ACSA Procurement Policy; however, the process followed by ORTIA Procurement to cancel the Bid had general weaknesses and flaws that were observed.

Corrective active was recommended and implemented.

30 July 2012

This report relates to the investigation conducted after a tip-off was received by Internal Audit on the alleged unauthorised removal of some furniture from the premises by an employee.

The evidence available indicates that the employee removed the furniture from the ACSA premises without approval and did not intend to return them.

Disciplinary action was launched and recommendations implemented.

19 February 2013

A call was logged in relation to the following allegations:

 

  • Allegations of unethical behaviour and corruption by the Electrical Supervisor.
  • Intimidation and victimisation of employees by Electrical Management.
  • Sowing of division among employees by Electrical Supervisor (1st Electrician).
  • Favouritism or preferential treatment of staff by Electrical Department management.
  • Training and exposure to various aspects of works.

The following recommendations were put forward:

The King Shaka Electrical department team are experiencing challenges with regard to team dynamics, as is evident in the allegations regarding favouritism and preferential treatment.

This is compounded by the fact that there are aspects of policies and procedures which have not been adhered to particularly as it relates to overtime. In addition the conduct with regard to procurement related aspects also indicates non adherence to policies and procedures.

These non-adherences may be construed as subversion to the system of internal controls. Subversion of the system of internal controls could lead to irregular transactions being perpetuated and remaining undetected which will result in financial losses for ACSA. We recommend that King Shaka International Airport (KSIA) management act decisively and swiftly on matters and recommendations noted during this investigation and raised in this report. This will contribute towards the cultivation of a culture of compliance to the Policies and procedures throughout its business.

12 November 2014

PORT ELIZABETH AIRPORT: Caller alleges that an employee from the airport is accepting bribes from baggage wrapping company.

  • The Airport Manager matter, conciliation was unsuccessful on 7 July 2016 and now Arbitration is set down for later during the year;
  • The Airport Manager matter, conciliation was unsuccessful on 7 July 2016 and now Arbitration is set down for later during the year;
  • The Department Head: Operations’ matter has been concluded and termination has been finalised.

13 November 2014

CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:

  • The complainant reported alleged favouritism and bribery in securing posts for 15 security officers.
  • One officer submitted an application after the deadline and was appointed.
  • Another assaulted a female security officer, but was not disciplined.
  • The whole process was documented and was found to be compliant with ACSA recruitment policies and procedures. All requirements were evaluated objectively and there was no scope for subjective interpretation;
  • The officer did not submit his application late, but did it manually, before the closing date; and
  • The suspected officer was not appointed as his qualifications were found to be suspect. This led to his automatic disqualification from further consideration.

03 November 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: An employee complained of nepotism regarding the appointment of a person into a senior position in the Human Resources department.

The airport management team conducted an investigation and could not find any evidence to support the allegation. They confirmed that the whole process was documented and was found to be compliant with ACSA recruitment policies and procedures.

29 September 2014

KIMBERLEY AIRPORT: A caller alleged that a security officer is using an administrator PIN code for making telephone calls instead of the personal PIN code assigned to him.

No evidence could be found to confirm the allegation.

27 September 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A caller alleged that a passenger travelling on an African based flight to Johannesburg would detonate a test device that will bring down the aircraft. AVSEC was notified and they liaised with the State Security Agency, SAPS and SAA to assess and mitigate the threat.

The passenger was identified from the information supplied. He, and his luggage were screened and was cleared for flying.

No incident occurred and the investigation was closed.

16 September 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A caller alleged that a senior buyer at the airport is disqualifying bidders from the grass cutting tender for no apparent reason. Another employee from Surface Maintenance excused himself because he did not want to be part of a panel corrupting people.

Upon request from the OR TAMBO General Manager, the CEO approved that an investigation be conducted by SNG.

The investigation has been concluded and the report issued to EXCO and Audit and Risk Committee.

Disciplinary action was taken accordingly and recommendations were implemented.

12 September 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: M&E requested and received a quote via the SSC, for disposable ear protectors that appeared high in value.

Furthermore, the recommended supplier was not in the business of selling such goods.  M&E challenged the SSC about this and obtained their own quotation which was 7.5 times less than the quote.

It appeared that an employee in SSC could be conflicted as the name supplied on the SSC quote belonged to an employee that was actually a buyer for ACSA.

A director check with the CIPC/CIPRO indicated that the employee implicated was not a director or shareholder in the company referred to in the allegation. No further investigation is required in this matter.

28 August 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A passenger on an international flight ordered a cup of tea at the coffee shop while waiting to board. After having the tea he “woke” up and realized he had missed his flight and experienced further drowsiness. He alleged that the waiter had drugged him.

The OR Tambo International Airport Public Safety and Security management team investigated by reviewing the cameras against the report, and the incident went undetected. The team could not establish the reason for blackout.

Internal Audit has assessed and no further investigation is required in this matter.

22 August 2014

KIMBERLEY AIRPORT: A caller alleged that one of the supervisors claim overtime for time not worked.

The regional airport management suspended the employee while the investigation was being done. Regional airport management in conjunction with HR conducted an investigation and found no evidence to support the allegations. The suspension was lifted and the supervisor was re-instated in his position.

Internal Audit has assessed management review and no further investigation is required in this matter.

14 August 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: An employee working in the Property department at OR Tambo International airport collected rent monies from tenants and pocketed the cash instead of declaring it as income received.

Investigations revealed that an ACSA employee was collecting rent from cargo companies. The employee was suspended while management conducted an investigation to determine the extent of this fraud matter.

Internal HR interventions have been finalised and employee dismissed.

12 August 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A caller alleged that there are copies of an upcoming tender for the upgrade of CCTV cameras floating around. He was alleging that ACSA is already approaching certain vendors in order to give them an advantage over others.

Internal Audit consulted with SCM and was informed that the tender has not yet been finalised for issue. The RFP document was still in draft as SCM were finalising the technical specifications and evaluating criteria for the tender.

Hence there was no way that a copy of the document could be in circulation in the public domain.

04 August 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: The caller stated that a friend she met on a dating site sent her a parcel from the UK containing money and diamonds to the value of R1.2m. He requested various amounts of money, gradually increasing his demands in order to have the parcel released.

Internal Audit met with the caller and suggested that the matter be raised by her with the SAPS Commercial Crimes unit as well as SARS as they are better equipped to deal with her matter.

The modus operandi is very similar to the 419 scams that have been comprehensively covered on TV documentaries, newspapers and the radio.

28 July 2014

CORPORATE: Two senior employees from the Strategic Planning and Projects Division left the employ of ACSA and joined a company who submitted a bid and won part of the tender. It was alleged that the two employees could have influenced the submission.

The ACSA BEC did identify the two employees during the tender evaluation process and obtained a legal opinion on the restraint of trade and cool-off periods applicable to these employees. The legal opinion stated that since no restraint of trade or cool-off period agreements were signed with these individuals, ACSA could not prevent them from seeking employment after termination of their services or prevent them from forming part of a company that was bidding on tenders to provide goods and services to ACSA.

15 July 2014

KIMBERLEY AIRPORT: A caller alleged that airport staff was using a company vehicle for personal errands around town.

Management investigated the call and provided feedback. Management‘s review found no malice in the use of the company vehicle.

11 July 2014

CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT An anonymous report was delivered to the CEO alleging that a supplier delivered poor quality work on fencing.

Management investigated the process and found no evidence to support the allegation of poor quality workmanship.

22 April 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: An employee working in Maintenance and Engineering indicated that a police case has been opened against her that the employee was using her position to coerce a service provider to buy equipment for her business, at their cost, in order for her to process job orders for their company, otherwise they cannot earn an income from their contract with ACSA.

An investigation was conducted by SizweNtsalubaGobodo (SNG). The investigation is complete and the report issued to management, and Audit and Risk Committee. The allegations made by supplier could not be substantiated with evidence. The SAPS had declined to prosecute due to insufficient evidence to substantiate the claims made by the supplier.

The employee went through an internal disciplinary process. The whistleblowing policy was updated and approved by the ARC and the BOARD. The policy also includes a clause that deals specifically with calls made in bad faith.

15 April 2014

UPINGTON REGIONAL AIRPORT: A caller reported that an ACSA employee was abusing a company vehicle.

The regional airport management team investigated the matter and found that there was irregular use of the vehicle. An employee was transferred from Gauteng to Upington and had the use of the company vehicle while HR was arranging for their vehicle to be transported to Upington. There was a delay in the transporting arrangement and the employee used the vehicle after her vehicle was delivered to Upington. The airport employee and the HR team responsible for arranging the move were issued with warnings for this transgression.

16 September 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A caller alleged that a senior buyer at the airport is disqualifying bidders from the grass cutting tender for no apparent reason. Another employee from Surface Maintenance excused himself because he did not want to be part of a panel corrupting people.

Upon request from the OR TAMBO General Manager, the CEO approved an investigation to be conducted by SNG.

The employee went through a disciplinary process and was subsequently demoted.

25 July 2014

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: The landside manager reported that a parking employee did not declare all the monies that she collected from taxi operators. Furthermore there was possible evidence of other aspects including that of a missing receipt book and an illegal parking card.

An investigation was conducted by the Parking Management team. The employee was dismissed with immediate effect after a disciplinary process.

11 May 2015

PORT ELIZABETH: The Auditor General reported that an employee alleged improper conducted in the management of taxi operators and kiddies’ rides at the airport, i.e. operators were allowed to conduct business without payment to ACSA.

Internal Audit conducted an investigation and found that not all the taxi operators’ contracts were available for review, but that the operators made their monthly payments.

The kiddies’ ride had a contract that was not yet signed. No payments were received for the seven (7) months that these rides operated at the airport.

Although no fraudulent activity was identified, Internal Audit recommended that management look at disciplinary process relating to non-adherence to ACSA policies and procedures and weak administrative controls.

Recommendations were implemented.

01 June 2015

CORP: Two individuals have information relating to retailer lease fraud, i.e. turnover rentals are not declared honestly. They want to meet with senior management and want possible compensation for the information they possess.

The issue was discussed at an Anti-corruption Steering Committee and it was concurred that this is a Commercial issue since the individuals want to sell ACSA a product to monitor retailers’ activities. The matter was referred back to Commercial division.

8 June 2015

ORTIA: Caller alleged that a cell phone was stolen from his luggage at ORTIA in November 2014. Calls to the value of around $38 000 were made.

ORTIA security investigated and found that the calls were made overseas before the passenger landed in South Africa and again after the passenger departed. Hence it was concluded that the phone could not have been stolen in South Africa.

10 June 2015

CTIA: An anonymous caller alleged that a security officer had a fraudulent matric certificate.

HR confirmed and send documentary proof that the security officer had a valid matric certificate.

28 August 2015

The tow truck operator settled the costs of the repairs for fixing the damage to the vehicle.

14 Sep 2015

CORP: A call was logged via the CEO of possible irregular relationship between a Buyer within ACSA and a Supplier.

The disciplinary hearing was concluded and the employee was reinstated. .

 

14 Dec 2015

BRAM FISCHER AIRPORT: A caller alleged that an ACSA employee used a company vehicle to carry stolen property from the airside.

It was established after the investigation that the vehicle in question removed materials that belonged to a contractor from the airside after having obtained written permission from the HOD: M&E to do so. No further action is required regarding this matter.

18 June 2015

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A firm of attorneys requested ACSA to admit liability to their client who got injured while travelling up an escalator due to its malfunctioning and trapping her in it. They are claiming financial loss and medical expenses.

The matter is now handled through the Insurance process.

15 Jan 2015

OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: A caller alleged that a female permit office staff member was recording payments for permits on a manual receipt book and was pocketing the cash received.

Permits are linked to receipts or a GL account. If what this person alleged happened, the reconciliation will not balance as the system will indicate the types and cost of permits and a hash total for the day’s events which would not match the cash received and banked. For the period referred to, no exceptions were recorded in the daily reconciliations.

(1)(a) Why did the SA National Roads Agency invite tenders for the demolition and reconstruction of the weighbridge at Senekal in the Free State, (b) which companies submitted bids for the specified project, (c) what amount did each company bid, (d)(i) which company was awarded the contract and (ii) why, (e) what are the time frames for the project, (f) what amounts have been paid to date, (g) why was the project stopped and (h) how will the project be completed; (2) how are overloaded vehicles weighed in the meantime?

Reply:

1. (a) The Free State Department of Transport and the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) have an overload control agreement which allows for the provision and upgrading of weigh bridges along the national routes in the Free State Province. The objective is to ensure that vehicle loads are within the legal limits; as to preserve the road infrastructure. The Senekal Traffic Control Centre was one of the traffic control centres which was identified for upgrading. The existing facility was limited in terms of size and capacity and was not sufficient to provide effective overload control. The demolishing and reconstruction proved to be more cost effective than changing the existing facility to the extent required. SANRAL went out to open tender for this upgrade, as required in terms of the Treasury Regulations.

(b),(c) The construction companies that submitted tenders and their tendered prices are listed in the table below:

(d)(i), (d)(ii) UKZN Plant Hire (ALT) was awarded the Contract as it scored the highest tender evaluation points.

(e) The project commenced on 23 March 2015. The completion date was scheduled to be the 27 June 2015.

(f) To date R11, 3 million has been paid to the Contractor.

(g) The Contractor failed to perform its duties under the contract and the Employer terminated the contract.

(h) SANRAL is in the process of retendering the outstanding work required to be completed.

What (a) are the full reasons why the SA National Roads Agency (SANRAL) approached the Constitutional Court regarding the tolling of the N1 and N2 highways in the Western Cape and (b) amount has SANRAL spent on legal expenses on the specified matter to date?

Reply:

(a) At the heart of the appeal is the question of condonation of an unreasonable delay on the part of the City of Cape Town, as an organ of state and its failure to provide an explanation for its unreasonable delay in reviewing the decisions taken concerning the N1/N2 Project (the Project). There is no question that the City knew that the decisions had been taken at the time that they were taken, that SANRAL was acting in furtherance of those decisions, and that the City stood by and did nothing even though it knew of this. It offered no explanation for why it did nothing. The Project was more than a decade in the making. Monies have already been spent in implementing and carrying out certain works concerning the Project. The City, being well aware of the Project, delayed unreasonably in bringing its application – almost a decade later. The City has never disputed that it became aware of the SANRAL decisions to declare the roads as toll roads when they were published in 2008. The peremptory 180-day period referred to in section 7 of the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act, (PAJA), (Act 3 of 2000) expired during March 2009

The N1 / N2 Winelands Project was conceived to improve the link between the Western Cape and the rest of the country, and substantial time, effort and investment had been put into its development. The Winelands Toll Road Project is a strategic infrastructure project that is necessary to sustain and develop the Western Cape economy and brings enormous economic development for the Western Cape Province. It was also earmarked to facilitate the movement of large volumes of export and import freight, business, tourism, recreational and commuter traffic which is vital to growing the South African economy.

(b) I must hastily point out to this honourable House and to the honourable member, Ms N I Tarabella Marchesi MP, that the Appeal as lodged by SANRAL is also against the costs order awarded and it would be negligent and misleading of me to mention a figure which the Appeal Court might overturn, my suggestion therefore is that we await the finalisation of the Appeal.

1. The nature of National Traffic Police (NTP) is to ensure that they are on the roads to execute law enforcement programmes in line with RTMC strategic deliverables. In the execution of their work NTP collaborates with provinces on different operations and programmes. As a result it is common cause that all NTP are expected to travel to all 9 provinces in line with deployment plan. This is done in consultation with the National Treasury guidelines and the RTMC Subsistence and Travel policy. Below please find the number of officers that were employed by RTMC for the years under question as well as the related accommodation costs.
