Motau, Mr SC to ask the Minister in the Presidency

With reference to the high expenditure on consultants in the Presidency’s 2016-17 annual report, what steps has the Presidency taken to curb the use of consultants since 1 April 2017, particularly for work that could easily be performed by the Presidency’s employees?

Reply:

In instances where consultants have been used, the expenditure has been reduced by using negotiated rates. The remuneration rate at which consultants are appointed is below the standard rate. The Presidency also cuts the number of hours of work where possible as a further initiative. In areas with less capacity constraints transfer of skills is applied. Furthermore, the Department is reviewing the structure to identify collaborations with an objective of increasing efficiency. A Consultancy reduction strategy was implemented in 2015 to ensure constant monitoring of consultant costs.

What are the details of all steps taken by the National Planning Commission (a) in each of the past three financial years and (b) since 1 April 2017 to assist in the implementation of Cabinet’s approved national priorities relating to (i) job creation and (ii) small business development?

Reply:

The second NPC has established three work-streams focusing on measures to inter alia:

  • Ensure an expanded and fairer economy;
  • Enhance the quality of life; and
  • Promote active citizenry and to enhance state capacity and leadership.

Within the economy work-stream several task teams have been created to focus on various initiatives in order to transform and grow the economy, as well as address unemployment, poverty and inequality. Some of the priority areas within the economy work stream are as follows:

  • Infrastructure - The objective of the NPC work is to offer high level strategic guidance on priority actions required to address binding infrastructure constraints. Discussion documents are being developed on water and energy.
  • Exports competitiveness and dynamism - This NPC task team is finalising a discussion document to provide advice on South Africa’s export competiveness.
  • Stimulation of SMME sector - The NPC seeks to gain deeper insights into the context of and challenges faced by township and rural economies, then formulate new and/or refine existing strategies aimed at addressing these challenges identified as envisioned in the NDP.

On job creation and SMME development the NPC has conducted research on the limited success of entrepreneurial activity by locals in townships and rural areas. The research was undertaken as part of the NPC’s economy work-stream’s task of prioritising township and rural economies as vehicles for achieving nationwide objectives of transforming and growing the economy, as well as addressing youth unemployment.

The key findings of the research indicate the need to improve the survival of small businesses in South Africa and especially those in the townships and rural areas as of paramount importance to realise the NDP vision 2030. South Africa has a number of well-developed policy imperatives and strategies; the missing gap is the ability to translate existing policies and strategies into effective implementation for the growth and development of small businesses in South Africa. Enterprise development is affected by numerous factors both within (internal) i.e. at micro level of an enterprise (e.g. managerial competencies); and outside (external) to the enterprise.

The research outcomes, as a way forward, indicate that there is an urgent need of discussion with the following Departments: Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs; Rural Development and Land Affairs, Small Business Development and Trade and Industry to work together to unblock and then harvest what is essentially low hanging fruit in local economic development.

Maynier, Mr D to ask the Minister in the Presidency

Whether, with reference to his statement on the Mandate Paper for Budget 2018 on 7 September 2017, (a) the National Development Plan and/or (b) the Budget Prioritisation Frameworks have been adopted by other developmental states; if not, why not; if so, in each case, what (i) is the name of each country that adopted the specified frameworks and (ii) are the further relevant details in each case?

Reply:

Development planning, which can be defined as national level, medium (5-year) to long-term (ten to 50 years) planning is common in what has been referred to as development states, especially in the so-called East Asian Tigers. Latin-America also has extensive planning systems.

Long-term and medium-term plans are developed in some key development states as follows:

In addition to a range of other planning instruments, Singapore’s rapid acceleration was accompanied by a Strategic Economic Plan which “sets the strategies and programmes for Singapore to realise a vision - to attain the status and characteristics of a first league developed country within the next 30 to 40 years.”

In South Korea, the Economic Planning Board was established in 1961 to develop economic plans and oversee their implementation. Five-year plans were developed with regularity from 1962 onwards.

Other developing countries and aspirant developmental states are also well-known for development planning. In 2006 the World Bank commented that Malaysia, one of the countries against which South Africa benchmarked its planning institutions, “has a rich history in long-term planning, having drawn up and implemented long-term national policy frameworks since the early 1970s. Since then, the Government has put into practice a comprehensive planning system of short-, medium- and long-term development plans and strategies, each linked to one another, reinforcing the course of policy directions toward meeting the long-term goals.”

In Chile the Ministry of Housing and Urbanism, in terms of the General Law on Urbanism leads planning through the National Urban Development Policy which provides principles, objectives and actions for the social, economic and territorial development of the country. Medium-term regional (“provincial”) plans, both development strategies defining broad socio-economic objectives for regions and more spatially orientated urban development strategies, are developed in terms of the national policy.

The Mexican national government develops a National Development Plan that is submitted to Parliament and approved and which sets the strategic objectives for the country. This is accompanied by a “General Ecological Spatial Plan” and these set the framework for state spatial developmental and ecological plans which develop strategic programmes for social, economic, cultural and environmental development and principles for land-use.

Brazil has a range of long and medium-term planning and budgeting mechanisms which are defined in its Constitution. For example, related to financing the Constitution specifies a multi-year plan (the “Plano Pluriannal” or “PPA”), the budgetary directives (“LDO”) and the annual budget (“LDA).

Budget Prioritisation Frameworks

Aligning budgets to plans and strategic priorities is critical for implementation of Government policy and plans. Due to contextual and institutional differences the exact mechanisms in different countries to align budgets and national strategic priorities, or a Budget Prioritisation Framework, differ substantially. In various jurisdictions. There is continuing experimentation with mechanisms for prioritisation and alignment. For example, in a 2016 World Bank Public Expenditure Review of Mexico it is recommended that to improve medium-term fiscal management there is a need to improve the links between “pluri-annual fiscal and investment planning and budgeting, managing mandatory expenditures, etc.” and for better “planning and budget integration” also through “developing a vision for the medium-term policy and program prioritization (enhancing the focus of planning, revising evaluation systems, selection of programs, etc)”.

With regard to some of the development states mentioned above:

In South Korea extensive processes are undertaken before budgets are drafted by line-ministries and Medium-Term Expenditure Framework task forces. As was reported in 2013: “The annual budget and MTEF cycle begins in January with line ministries and the Budget Office adjusting the ceilings from those of the previous year as a starting point and setting important policy priorities.”

In Singapore as part of the budget reforms since 1989, “the Cabinet decides on the budget priorities and the total allocations to the various sectors and ministries”.

For Malaysia, the World Bank in 2013 commented that “[i]n addition to defining the targets for the outlined public sector development programs, the five-year plans define the size and budgetary allocation for each of the respective programs over the plan period, effectively integrating the policy prioritization process with the budget allocation process.”

With reference to South and Latin America the bridge between plan and budget is most thoroughly institutionalised in Brazil where the Constitution describes a trilogy of instruments namely a multi-year plan, budget directives and the annual budget and the relationship between them.

The Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation does not hold any investments. The current and non-current assets are mainly cash, prepayments, advances and debt. The Member should refer to the department’s audited 2016/17 annual financial statements as most of this information is contained therein.

Reply:

The Department of Planning Monitoring and Evaluation does not fund institutions of research and development.

However, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA), has from 2015 up to date collaborated with the University of Stellenbosch, University of the Witwatersrand, University of Cape Town, University of Kwazulu Natal, Population Association of Southern Africa (PASA), South African Statistical Association (SASA), and University of Pretoria.

The purpose of the collaboration has been capacity building in use of statistics, promote collaboration among academia to build research and analytical skills capacity, conduct basic and operational research in the fields of regional and urban spatial development analysis, planning, policy formulation, and management and building capacity within the public and private sectors in the same fields. A research centre has been created where each year we send no less than 12 senior officials to study and create an interface between statistics and planning, which is sorely needed. The total amount contributed is R12 million.

The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) has in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg established the Youth Development Institute of South Africa (YDSA). The function of which is to conduct youth development research, develop youth development programs and projects, manage and disseminate youth development knowledge, as well as lobbying and advocacy.

From 2014/2015 financial year up to 2016/2017 financial year the NYDA contributed R5.3 million.

The National Youth Development Agency issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) that was advertised on 16 January 2015 and closed on the 06 February 2015 for organisations to partner with the NYDA on all of its programmes. The concept came as a response to that request for proposals.

On the 13 February 2014 Zeila from Costilogix which is a South African company that offers entrepreneurship to the unemployed requested for a meeting with the office of the CEO. In this meeting the Directors of Costilogix, Bobby Mosidi and Frans Venter were going to meet with the office of the CEO, to see if they could partner with NYDA to support the youth. The office of the CEO referred the request to Senior Manager Rural Development to handle the request.

Reply:

Records of the NCACC as at 27/03/2017 show that the only entities registered under the Milkor Trade name are: Milkor (Pty) Ltd and Milkor Special Projects. For both these entities there are various permits that authorise them to manufacture and export their products and related services.

The entities currently registered under the NCAC Act, do not have Shareholders in terms of Mr Sehrat Bayoglu and Raci Yetis. However, the NCACC can confirm that a new application was lodged by Milkor to include these shareholders. This application is pending while due diligence is being conducted by organs of state with a vetting mandate as prescribed in the Act and its attendant Regulations.

In regard to confirmation of exports by Milkor, the confirmation being sought here is wide and somewhat tentative. However, it should be born in mind that transfers approved by the NCACC are effected strictly in accordance with sec 15 of the NCAC Act (Act 41 of 2002, as amended).

The Act also provides that if and when it is established that individuals belong to or are involved in nefarious activities in South Africa and/or elsewhere, the approval sought for their admission as new shareholders of Milkor shall not be granted by the NCACC under such circumstances.

In light of the poor economic growth and the continual annual loss of jobs in various sectors, what interventions have been implemented by (a) his department and (b) the National Planning Commission to facilitate the reaching of the set target of creating 11 million jobs by 2030?

Reply:

In 2013 the Cabinet resolved that the 2014-2019 (Medium Term Strategic Framework) MTSF should form the first five-year implementation phase of the National Development Plan (NDP) and mandated different organs of the state to begin aligning their plans to the NDP vision - 2030. The aim of the MTSF is to ensure policy coherence across government as well as the alignment between planning and budgeting processes. The MTSF outlines programmes and key interventions to growth, employment and investment, particularly in core productive sectors. The interventions under the MTSF complement other policies such as the New Growth Path and the National Industrial Policy Framework that already exist.

The current global and domestic economy remains weak. Economic growth essentially stagnated in 2016 and there might be a modest recovery in growth towards 2.0% by 2020. Unemployment rates are likely to remain high with lower growth. As part of the global economy, South Africa is not immune to the challenges facing other countries. A number of sectors earmarked for growth and employment are affected by these external factors. These include lower commodity prices and global steel oversupply. These developments necessitated government to evaluate all policies, strategies and programmes interventions with a commitment to stabilise some of the affected sectors. Global economic challenges have had major impact on the implementation of key government programmes and commitments during the period under review. Despite the weak economic environment, the commitments made by government under Outcome Four: Decent Employment through Inclusive Growth are being implemented and progress is being recorded in key sectors of the economy.

The Department of Planning Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) provides quarterly updates to the Executive on the progress made by the government in realising the objectives set out in the 2014-2019 MTSF. In addition, DPME quarterly reports, identify challenges and determine how best to address them in the remaining years of the 2014-2019 MTSF. The department also provide guidance on the implementation of government’s programme of action and identify critical lessons for an effective implementation of the NDP, 2030. This includes the 9-point plan that was announced by the President during the 2015 State of the Nation Address to fast track the implementation of the MTSF.

The intended outcomes of the initiatives include;

  • Promoting investment in the mining cluster in the newly established One-Stop-Shop facility that links to the Invest South Africa process, developing a common message across key stakeholders and unlocking impediments to the entry of independent black capital.
  • Increasing exploration through the provision of cutting edge geo-scientific information and special funding mechanisms.
  • Increasing participation of emerging miners in the mining value chain by creating alternative funding mechanism and creating mechanisms for collaboration with Majors.
  • The implementation of an industry wide decent work program with an initial focus on rights at work, the rejuvenation of Future Forums, policy alignment and social protection.
  • The implementation of a cluster reskilling and upskilling programme that is collaborative, transparent and enables mobility across the cluster.
  • The establishment of a multi-stakeholder crisis intervention task force (modelled on government intervention post the financial crisis) with the objective of saving marginal mines and jobs.

The Mining Phakisa Lab took five weeks, from 26 October 2015 to the 27 November 2015 in Limpopo (3 weeks at the Legends Resort) and at the Capital Hotel in Sandton (2 weeks).

Stakeholders from organised business, organised labour, civil society, some chapter 9 institutions, Congress of traditional Leaders and government departments attended the Mining Phakisa lab. The cost was R26 785 520.81 and the report will be made available after the Presidential Launch in December 2016.
