Reply:

The Minister of Public Works

With respect to the Department of Public Works:

(a) Yes, the Department of Public Works paid out the remainder of an employee’s contract in the 2012/2013 financial year.

(i) (aa) The amount of R1 523 504.98, was paid out after tax was deducted.

(ii) The above-mentioned amount was paid to a former Director-General in the Department of Public Works.

(iii) The amount was paid as a result of the redetermination of the term of office of the employee.

In most of these cases Government has made a saving, because we settled for an average of six months, instead of the full duration of the employment contract and thus avoided incurring further costs. In other cases the settlements were based on the outcomes of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) arbitrations.

With respect to public entities:

(b) Apart from the Independent Development Trust (IDT) none of the four public entities reporting to the Department of Public Works paid out the remainder of any employee’s contract before the contractually stipulated date of termination of contract since the 2008/09 financial year up to 31 March 2015. The IDT paid out the following amounts based on the negotiated separation agreements or CCMA arbitration awards against the IDT for terminated contracts involving disciplinary cases:

Key performance areas, which received a result of “partial compliance” or “non-compliance” with MPAT standards, had to compile an action plan to ensure improvement and/or full adherence to MPAT standards. Compliance with these action plans was monitored through the normal DOD’s performance reporting processes.

For the period 1 April 2015 to date no expenditure was found to be fruitless and wasteful expenditure.

In respect of fruitless and wasteful expenditure, the outcome of a liability investigation being conducted to determine recoverability can result in the following:

  • Investigation still pending (no resolution);
  • Treasury Regulation 12.7.3 resolution (claim against official must be waived in those instances where state cover is not forfeited);
  • Liability cannot be determined; and
  • Liability determination to recover expenditure.

If the category of irregular expenditure is considered, it reflects the incurrence of expenditures by members countrywide mainly where procurement prescripts were not technically complied with. The Department did however receive the goods or services. In each such incident reported, a due process of investigation, determination of responsibility and consideration of disciplinary steps are considered. Preventative control measures such as procurement authority, segregation of duties, and registration/rotation of suppliers regarding quotations, exception reporting and certification, limit irregular and fruitless expenditures. The formal process of assessment as indicated is via the Supply Chain Management (BAC) mechanism.

It should be noted that 2014/15 figures are still being audited by the Auditor-General as part of the year-end audit process, and could change.

Whether her department is currently involved in a work exchange and/or employment agreement with the Republic of Cuba: if so, (a) What number of Cuban nationals (i) are currently employed and (ii) are due to be employed by her department, (b) What specific work roles are envisaged for the Cuban nationals, (c) what are the specific skills sets of each of the Cuban nationals (i) currently employed and (ii) due to be employed, (d) what are the details of the process followed to ensure that the same skill set was or is not available in the country and amongst South African citizens (e) what is the total cost of the (i) employment or (ii) prospective employment of such Cuban nationals?

Reply:

  1. No, there are no Cuban nationals currently employed by the Department of Science and Technology. However, there are scientific exchanges in specific research and development areas facilitated through the Bilateral Scientific and Technological Cooperation Agreement signed in 2001. Important collaborations in the past have focused on biotechnology and nanotechnology, with five related flagship projects implemented from 2005 to 2014, namely:
  • (a) Cholera vaccine development project, supported from 2005;
  • 1(b) Human monoclonal antibodies, supported from 2006;
  • (c)  Pre-clinical drug development, supported from 2006;
  • (d) the use of radio-labelled compounds in medical, biosciences and industrial research, with focus on radio-labelling cancer receptor targeting compounds, supported from 2007; and
  • (e)development of drug delivery systems, lateral flow-point-of-care diagnostic kits and biosensors based on nanoparticles, with focus on new therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals based on monoclonal antibodies, supported from 20072.
  •  

2.  For each of the above projects, there has been one principal researcher from each side, supported by teams of R&D staff in their organisations. The Cubans involved in the R&D projects are highly qualified scientists in their field of specialisation, most holding Phds in the respective science disciplines they conduct research on.

3.It should be stressed that the Cuban scientists were, however not employed in South Africa but remained based at their own institutions in Cuba.

What (a) has been the adverse impact of Eskom’s loadshedding on the functioning of police stations and the ability of the SA Police Service (SAPS) to perform its duties and (b) strategies has the SAPS implemented to mitigate this impact?

Reply:

(a) Load shedding has an adverse effect on service delivery in the SAPS. It has an impact on all communication and network operations, including the registering of case dockets, circulation of firearms and vehicles. A number of stations cannot function at night because there are no lights, especially in the cells when there are detainees, which is a huge security risk.

(b) Not all 1140 fully fledged police stations have generators. Of the 1 140 police stations, 197 do not have generators. Of the 197 police stations, 184 police stations are non-devolved police stations, which is the responsibility of DPW and 13 are devolved, which is SAPS’ responsibility.

The National Department of Public Works has been requested to register projects for the provisioning of generators at the non-devolved police stations. Funding has been made available for this purpose for the 2015/ 2016 financial year.

All devolved police stations without generators will be provided with a generator by the end of the current financial year.

The SAPS also invests in renewable green energy and includes solar perimeter lighting in all renewal and new generator and electrical maintenance contracts.

Five (5) devolved police stations in the Eastern Cape are fully dependent on solar power; namely Afsondering, Katkop, Lukholweni, Mbizeni and Zamuxolo.

The SAPS is in the process of putting out a tender for the procurement of mobile backup generators to be distributed by the Provinces as and where the need arises.

(a) How many Film and Publication Board (FPB) classifiers have been trained through a formal qualification process and (b) at what institution have the specified Film and Publication Board classifiers qualified since 26 May 2014?

Reply:

  1. There is no formal qualification provided for classifiers. FPB provides informal classifier training in the form of workshops. These are conducted using the services of experts in the different fields- the appeals tribunal and experienced senior classifiers. Training is informal in the form of a workshop which deals in depth with the classification guidelines, applicable legislations including the Constitution. On a quarterly basis, there are refresher classifiers’ training workshops provided which are interactive and allow classifiers to provide operational feedback and challenges experienced in the application of the guidelines and legislation.
  2. No formal qualification is offered to classifiers.

(a) How many copies of My District Today published by the Government Communication and Information System are distributed (i) weekly and (ii) monthly, (b) through what medium is the publication distributed, (c) in what language is the publication published, (d) is each province equally represented in the publication and (e) how is the publication monitored to ensure that it successfully reaches communities?

Reply:

(a)    My District Today is a weekly online newsletter published every Friday. Currently My District Today is circulated to a database of roughly 10 000 stakeholders including Academia, Civil society Organisation: NGOs, FBOs, CBOs, Business, Government Sector: National departments, Provincial government and Municipalities, Community Development Workers, Street Committees, Commercial Media: SABC ALS, Community Media: small print, radio as well as community television; Community Policing Forums, Thusong Programme Coordinating Structures, Traditional Authorities, Special Groups: Organised Youth structures, Women’s groups and those structures of people with disabilities, Rate Payers Associations, Organised Labour, Constituency Offices and Ward Committees, amongst others.

The publication aims to profile the impact of government programmes by elevating community voices and coalface stories – the editorial bias is towards profiling success stories of government’s nine priorities especially in remote and far lying communities which often do not get public attention.

The publication further serves to elevate local stories to the national platforms such as the Vuk’uzenzele newspaper, the Public Sector Magazine, internal newsletters of government departments, etc.

(b)       My District Today is published on the GCIS website and cascaded via email to national, provincial and local stakeholders.

(c)       The publication is currently published in English.

(d)       Equal representation of all nine provinces is ensured through a rotational roster, wherein if five stories are covered in a week (one from each province) the next edition automatically covers the remaining four. Provinces are therefore equally represented in a month.

(e)     In terms of monitoring, a survey was conducted in August 2014 among recipients to evaluate interest, conceive inputs and further ideas on areas of improvement. The survey made a number of recommendations which are being implemented.

Because of its nature as an online publication it is primarily intended for stakeholders and community intermediaries as opposed to individual community members who receive communication via other channels. This dissemination is done by means of a data base maintained both nationally and provincially, through the Content and Knowledge Management Assistant Directors in GCIS Provincial Offices who verify email addresses.

Provision is made for occasional print versions of the product during the GCIS provincial outreaches where it is distributed to members of the public with other government information material.
