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

(1)According to the database of the records of learners of the SA Qualifications Authority, what number of learners achieved full qualifications on Level 4 as a result of the learnership programme(s) in the (a) 2015, (b) 2016 and (c) 2017 academic years; (2) whether her department is content with the number of learners who are improving their qualifications through learnership contracts; if not, what (a) changes or initiatives will her department be initiating to improve the opportunities for learners to receive formal, work-place based training and (b) would be the targeted number of learners who will undergo training in future; if so, why?

Reply:

  1. The number of achievements against the qualifications at NQF Level 4 in learnerships is as follows:

Year

Number of Achievements

2015

5 648

2016

3 909

2017

2 573

2. Given the increasing number of young people who are not in employment, education or training, the Department has put measures in place to improve the quality and number of those undertaking workplace-based training.

a) The Department is embarking on various initiatives to improve the opportunities for learners to receive formal, workplace-based training, such as the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) Workplace-Based Learning Programme Agreement Regulations, which was published on 16 November 2018 and reviewing the current SETA landscape with a view to better position SETAs to appropriately respond to the needs of their respective sectors. This, amongst others, is intended to increase learner uptake in workplace-based training. The establishment of the Centres of Specialisation is another initiative to make a meaningful contribution in this regard.

b) In terms of the 2014 - 2019 Medium Term Strategic Framework, the Department has targeted 140 000 workplace-based learning opportunities annually by 31 March 2019.

Reply:

The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and universities monitor the Student Representative Council (SRC) budgets and expenses. Information regarding SRC funding has to be sourced from universities and colleges directly. The universities and TVET colleges listed in the tables below have provided the following responses based on the questions posed.

Universities

Name of University

(1)(a) Total budget allocated

(1)(b)-(c) Election expenses and monitoring

(2) (a)-(c) Exceeding of budget allocations

Cape Peninsula University of Technology

2013: R36 000.00

2014: R299 535.00

2015: R695 445.60

2016: R690 258.60

2017: R246 474.85

2018: R772 360.79

An external agency runs elections, and no funds are allocated for parties contesting the elections.

The Dean of Students is the most senior Executive who monitors the SRC election process and reports to the Executive Committee.

There is no record of the rules having been broken or of any action having been taken against any CPUT official relating to the running of the CPUT SRC elections.

University of Cape Town

The total budget allocated for SRC elections for the period 2009 to 2018 amounts to R946 940.00.

The amount each person/party and /or entity standing in an SRC election is permitted to spend on SRC election expenses is R800 per candidate for campaigning.

The specified expenses are monitored.

In the 2012 SRC elections, one of the parties campaigning in the elections received additional external funding towards its election campaign. The Electoral Committee for this transgression fined the party concerned.

Central University of Technology

R500 000.00 for Welkom Campus in the past decade and R2 200 000.00 for the Bloemfontein Campus

Election expenses are part of the SRC operational budget under the item of Elections set aside for operational costs of elections and payment of the service provider (IEC/PWC) which is set aside from the University auditing funds centralised to cover both Welkom and Bloemfontein electoral staff payments. They are used for marketing, printing of ballot papers, catering, transport between campuses, etc.

All specified expenses are monitored accordingly.

The only deviation is when the IEC is unable to assist due to its primary function of running national and local elections; the University will then use the services of PWC as an alternative.

Durban University of Technology

2009: R180 000.00

2010: R180 000.00

2011: R180 000.00

2012: R180 000.00

2013: R180 000.00

2014: R180 000.00

2015: R210 000.00

2016: R280 000.00

2017: R470 000.00

Each candidate is allocated R500 for personal campaigning; however, there is no regulation of how much more each candidate may raise to spend on one’s campaign.

The amount allocated to candidates is given to them to use at their discretion.

There have been occasions that budgeted amounts were exceeded.

In August 2016, a security situation occurred in the Midlands Campus – extra security measures had to be taken to defend the integrity of the elections resulting in additional costs. In 2017, a disruption during counting occurred at the Durban Campus, resulting in a new round of voting and counting.

This resulted in a security company being appointed and extra costs incurred.

University of Fort Hare

R650 000.00 for SRC elections per annum.

Approximately R300 000.00 is spent on the IEC that manages and conducts the SRC election. However, if the IEC is managing the SRC elections, the University pays approximately R60 000, which is mainly administrative costs. The University allocated R25 000 per organisation/individual (per Campus) for their campaigns for the SRC election in the 2017 and 2018 SRC elections.

The Student Governance and Development Unit administers the allocated amount, and as such is not allocated directly to the organisation/individuals contesting the SRC elections.

The University has not had instances where allocations have been exceeded or where the rules related to election expenditure have been broken.

University of Free State

2009: R169 165.00

2016: R200 000.00

2017: R784 200.00

2018: R950 000.00

The budget allocations cover the pre-election phase (would entail a tendering process by the Finance Department for Service Providers) and balloting phase (actual voting days).

UFS does not provide funds for any campaigning that falls outside of the formal campaigning schedule. The University does, however, intervene where there has been a violation of the electoral code of conduct.

The UFS Finance and Audit Departments audits and monitors the electoral budgets and associated expenditure of the SRC elections and other student governance structures. 

No budget was exceeded.

The budgeted funds are spent on marketing, printing of ballot papers and campaigning. Each contestant for SRC elections would receive R300.00 allowance for printing of campaigning material. For student organisations, the R300.00 allowance would be multiplied by the number of portfolios the organisation would be contesting.

The printing of material is monitored as printing happens on campus.

The University of Pretoria supports campaigning candidates for SRC elections insofar as printing an equal number of posters across all its campuses. The printing costs are part of the budget, and they are all uniform except the message from each candidate based on the portfolio they are campaigning. Electronic campaigns on the University platform are at no cost.

Dedicated staff in the Finance Department monitor expenses and all activities are audited and reported to the University’s Audit and Risk Committee of Council.

Expenses are strictly according to the budget, and this is not in control of the SRC.

The election budget is planned for within the University budget. Funds are not received from any external or political party regarding the SRC elections. Candidates utilise funds for campaign purposes (including posters).

One candidate on 10/08/2018 purchased 6 T-shirts, which were not declared. It came to the attention of the Independent Electoral Body (IEB) via the Administrator appointed to oversee the election process regarding compliance with all rules.

The case was deemed a minor infringement, only a determined number of votes were deducted from the candidate post voting.

Sefako Makgatho University

The University allocated R365 000.00 for 2018/ 2019 SRC election process. For the previous four years, the allocated budget was R250 000.00 for each election process.

In the 2018 elections process, the allocation per political structure was increased to R10 000. For the previous four years, the allocation was R6 000 per political structure.

The expenditure of the allocated amount is specifically designated for election promotional material of whatever nature determined by the specific political organisations.

These expenditures are processed through the University procurement system authorised by the University Governance Support Staff as well as the Director Student Affairs

The allocated elections budget has never been overspent over the past five years. This is due to the monitoring and control system that is in place.

Sol Plaatje University

2017: R85 000.00

2018: 100 000.00

Election expenses are for auditors, printing and stationery as well as refreshments.

2016: R3 862 226.00

2017: R0

Elections are not held every year, and expenses are thus of a project or cyclical nature. Sometimes expenses are processed in the subsequent year and may reflect as an overspent in that year.

Expenditure is monitored on a continuous basis.

Budget allocations have not been exceeded in total, or per election, nor have the rules related to election expenditure been broken.

Stellenbosch University

2017/2018: R72 988.22

2018/2019: R46 237.88

There are no records for the preceding eight years.

The amount that each person standing is permitted for marketing spend is decided by the election convenors, who are guided by the election rules, so that each candidate has a fair chance.

Year 2018/2019: R500 (total spend per candidate) x 14 candidates = R7 000

Year 2017/2018: R500 (total spend per candidate) x 14 candidates = R7 000

Student Governance monitors the total amount allocated and expended. Student Governance also plays an oversight role on what is spent during the elections. Furthermore, the University has financial controls systems, which promotes financial management.

No budget was exceeded, and no rules were broken in the 2018 and 2019 elections.

Tshwane University of Technology

2018: R620 000.00

Student Governance and Leadership Development (SGLD) Directorate operational budget covers other operational expenses related to elections amongst others; security, catering for all staff and volunteers, transport and voting venues on the day of the elections.

The SRC finance committee determines the allocation to student structures. That budget is for operations and programmes for the whole year including buying T-shirts and logistics for SRC elections because the budget is not sufficient and not the same from all structures the SGLD Directorate subsidies the structures participating in SRC elections with R1000 each for elections only. Officials in the SGLD monitors the day-to-day operations of these structures including their budget.

The SGDL directorate monitors how the structures manage their budgets. This is done to ensure that by the time SRC elections are conducted, no structures participating in elections have depleted their budgets.

Vaal University of Technology

2012/13: R55 000.00

2013/14: R80 000.00

2015/16: R100 000.00

2017/18: R125 000.00

These expenses are monitored on the basis that student structures have to bring their memorandum of request where all logistics are tabulated. All procurement will be done in accordance with what they have requested.

The University has never exceeded its budget as student structures apply and receive their functional rights at the beginning of the year, which therefore determines the support the Student Support Services Department has to give.

The allocated budget is strictly monitored, and Management must approve any deviation.

The budget was exceeded in 2016 and 2018. The University Management provided for safety and security during the elections, which had become increasingly confrontational.

Walter Sisulu University

Over the last ten years, WSU has allocated
R 11.5 million for SRC Elections.

The University does not have a specific budget set aside for contesting parties. Political Student Organisations contesting elections are funded through a grant allocated by the SRC. The Grant is an allocation for those Parties based on the number of seats such parties obtained in the SRC elections. Such budgets vary from campus-to-campus depending on the student enrolment figures in those campuses.

Expenses are monitored and processed through University procurement policies.

Basson, Mr LJ to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)(a) What is the (i) name and (ii) current safety status of each dam under the control of his department, (b) when last did the dam safety office of his department conduct safety inspections on each dam and (c) what was the outcome of the inspection in each case; (2) what mechanisms has his department put in place to deal with dams that pose safety risks?

Reply:

(1) Refer to Annexure A for the details on current safety status of each dam. In Part (1). Table 1 of the annexure explains the condition rating of the dam based on the most recent Dam Safety Evaluation (DSE) report by an Approved Professional Person (APP). Table 2 contains a list of category 2 and 3 dams which must be subjected to a five yearly DSE (category 1 dams are excluded). Condition rating system based on the outcome of a Dam Safety Evaluation (DSE) was implemented in 2016, which explains why only 72 dams on the list have a condition rating indicating their safety status as reviewed by the Dam Safety Office. Table 2 also indicates the dams that have been rehabilitated to improve their safety and will only be evaluated at least 5 years after construction completion as well as 41 dams that are currently been evaluated by APP’s.

(2) The outcomes of dam safety evaluations determine the type of intervention/mechanism required to address the safety risk. These interventions/mechanisms could either be maintenance related or capital intensive where dam rehabilitation is required. For maintenance related issues the Cluster or Operation Managers are usually tasked to address these as part of routine maintenance as prescribed in the operations and maintenance manuals. For capital intensive safety risks are addressed through Dam Safety Rehabilitation Programme (DSRP).

/Score

Analysis of condition from the Recommendations and Findings of a Dam Safety Evaluation Report by an APP

A

Dam in good condition and routine maintenance are acceptably up to date. An evaluation interval of longer than 5 years can be recommended (if the owner request it or for farmers/ smaller municipalities.)

B

Dam in reasonable condition but not complying to modern standards. Only routine maintenance and routine inspections recommended. An evaluation interval of longer than 5 years cannot be recommended.

C

Significant outstanding maintenance by the normal operation and maintenance staff recommended restoring dam to a functional state. Elementary monitoring systems like settlement beacons and flow monitoring included here.

D

Significant rehabilitation recommended to restore dam components to its original state for example repair major erosion or cavitation’s, repair slope protection, reinstate crest level, refurbish outlet works or gates. Work is considered significant rehabilitation if it is outside the capacity of the normal operation and maintenance staff and the appointment of a contractor is necessary and the work should be done under guidance of an APP. Drafting of an Operation and Maintenance Manual and or Emergency Preparedness Plan and install sophisticated monitoring instruments under guidance of an APP also included here.

E

Upgrading recommended for example increase spillway capacity, increase freeboard, provide buttress / thicken dam to improve stability or install stress cables, install slope protection, install additional drainage or grouting or water seals to reduce leakage. A licence to alter and the services of an APP will be required.

F

Dam unsafe. Restrictions on operation recommended, for example water level may not exceed a specified level.

  • A circular was issued to all staff involved in organising the ITU Telecom World 2018 reminding them of the regulations on declaration, approval, acceptance and registration of gifts and hospitality.

Reply:

The Integrated School Health Programme (ISHP) is dealing with teen pregnancy by delivering age appropriate health education on sexual and reproductive health services for learners in and out of schools, and at every contact or session they make with young people, aged 10-24 years.

The package include:

  • Menstrual Health education

  • Provision of condoms (male & female) to ensure dual protection to the sexually active learners
  • Oral contraceptives,
  • Injectables (2 months and 3 months),

I have been informed by. zaDNA as follows:

(a) What is the current status of the legal case in the matter between .ZA Domain Name Authority and the ZA Central Registry?

The Arbitrator ruled in ZADNA’s favour on 7 August 2018. ZADNA has since applied for the award to be made an order of court, however ZACR is opposing the court order application. ZACR is also intending to review the arbitrator’s decision.

(b)- (d) What attempts at mediation of the issue have been held since the Deputy Minister withdrew her participation after 7 June, who conducted the specified mediation between the parties, on what date, what was the outcome of the mediation attempts, what did the attempts cost the .ZA Domain Name Authority and who is paying the costs?

The mediation process is still ongoing and is conducted on a “without prejudice” basis and, therefore, cannot be disclosed at this stage.

With reference to his reply to question 685 on 27 March 2018, what is the current status of the dispute between his department and the Department of Communications relating to the payment of Media Corner; (2) What is the current status of the disciplinary proceedings instituted against the employees who served as members of the Departmental Bid Evaluation Committee and the Departmental Bid Adjudictaion Committee; (3) Whether any criminal charges have been laid agains any employee or consultant involved in the Media Corner matter since 27 March 2018; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

I have been advised by the Department as follows:

1) Judgement was obtained against Media Corner on 20 September 2016. The High Court held that the decision of the Department, taken on 14 August 2012 and 22 October 2012 to award the tender to Media Corner, is reviewed and set aside, further ordering that the two remaining prayers, namely:

(i) to have the contract declared null and void ab initio; and

(ii) repayment of retainer fees, in the amount of R12 783 368.00 were not granted but postponed for further argument sine die

The matter resumed on 17 October 2017 for the remaining prayers to be heard. The High Court declared the agreement concluded between the Department and Media Corner invalid and null and void ab initio. The court further ordered that the Minister and SIU, deliver a declaration setting out the relief sought associated with the two remaining prayers, reformulated as may be advised, within 30 days of the order, where after the normal rules applicable relating to action proceedings will apply. On 18 October 2017, whilst the matter was in court, the State Attorney was informed that Media Corner was placed in voluntary liquidation.

Pursuant to the judgement, Media Corner was placed in liquidation. The department is currently assessing whether it will be able to recover the judgement amount through the liquidation procedures.

2. The disciplinary hearing relating to the DBEC members was finalised. The Department is awaiting the outcome from the chairperson.

The Director-General made a decision to withdraw legal representation dealing with the hearing of the DBAC members and requested the DPSA to provide an employee to continue with the hearing. This was in line with the recommendation of the Public Service Commission (PSC) and accepted by the Minister. The PSC report stated that the Department cannot use legal representation against employees without legal qualifications. The Department received the nomination from the DPSA and is in the process of appointing an employee within the Public Service to represent the employer at the disciplinary hearing. As soon as the employee is appointed the disciplinary hearing will be scheduled to continue.

3. No criminal charges have been laid against any of the employees who were implicated in the Media Corner matter as the hearings have not been finalised. The charges levelled by the Department does not relate to criminal action.
