Profile picture: Bucwa, Ms H

Bucwa, Ms H to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)What are the criteria followed in allocating staff housing at the University of Zululand; (2) Are staff members ranked in accordance with these criteria when accommodation is offered to staff in university-owned houses; (3) (a) Where is each staff house located and (b) what is the average monthly (i) rental and (ii) related costs recovered from staff occupying each staff house since 1 April 2017; (4) What (a) costs related to staff accommodation offered by the university are paid for by the staff member concerned and (b) costs are borne by the university; (5) What total amount did the university spend on staff housing (a) in the 2016-17 financial year and (b) since 1 April 2017?

Reply:

The University of Zululand has provided the following responses to the questions posed.

  1. The University of Zululand has an approved housing policy. Section 4.1 of the policy categorises housing units in 3 categories being:
  • Section 4.1.1 Executive Housing;
  • Section 4.1.2 On-campus staff housing; and
  • Section 4.1.3 Off-campus staff housing.

The Criteria on the allocation of staff housing is set out in section 5 of the policy. The university has set out 4 main purposes for housing units in section 5.1

  • Section 5.1.1 Housing for executives;
  • Section 5.1.2 Housing for permanent employees;
  • Section 5.1.3 Temporary housing for newly appointed staff; and
  • Section 5.1.4 Housing of staff on short term contracts

Category 5.1.1 deals with the allocation of staff housing for executives. The housing for other categories of employees (5.1.2, 5.1.3 and 5.1.4) is on approximate proportion of 50:25:25. This ratio can be modified from time to time based on the need.

For category 5.1.2 (permanent employees), preference is given to those on higher Peromnes (4-6). Employees under this category are given a 3-year lease which may be renewable after the end of the 3-year period.

For staff category 5.1.3 (temporary housing of newly appointed staff), units may be offered for a period of up to 6 months from their commencement date.

For category 5.1.4 (housing of staff on short term contracts), housing is offered for the duration of the contract up to a maximum of 24 months.

2. Yes, the catergories as outlined above are used when allocating staff accommodation.

3. (a) The University has staff accommodation both on and off-campus. The university submitted an incomplete list as shown in Table 1 below. This information will be submitted as soon as the university has provided updated information through the Department.

Profile picture: Bozzoli, Prof B

Bozzoli, Prof B to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

Whether her department has undertaken a survey of the quality of student accommodation at all (a) universities and (b) technical and vocational education and training colleges in the past three years; if not, (i) why not and (ii) is such an evaluation planned in future; if so, what were the relevant findings in each case?

Reply:

a) (i)-(ii) The Department has not undertaken a survey of the quality of student accommodation at all universities over the past three years, because a comprehensive review was done in 2010 at all university campuses. A Ministerial Committee undertook a review and issued a Report on the Ministerial Committee for the Review of the Provision of Student Housing at South African Universities, in September 2011. The report provided a comprehensive picture of the state of student accommodation at all universities as well as a projected shortfall of the number of beds at each university. Emanating from this review, the Policy on the Minimum Norms and Standards for Student Housing at Public Universities (hereafter referred to as Policy) was published in Government Gazette No. 39238 in September 2015. The Policy is still used to inform the development of new infrastructure and refurbishment of old infrastructure.

The Ministerial Review Report showed that the public university sector had sufficient spaces in university owned on-campus student accommodation for approximately 107 598 or 20% of the contact student population. The report estimated that 195 815 new beds were required to effectively house students who required accommodation. Between 2012/13 and 2014/15 the Department allocated R1.748 billion from infrastructure and efficiency funds towards the development of student housing.

The Ministerial Review Report recommended that universities should ideally be providing beds for 30% to 50% of contact students on campuses in urban areas where there is available and affordable off-campus accommodation, and 60% to 80% on rural campuses where there is less or inappropriate
off-campus accommodation. Over time, all student accommodation should meet the norms and standards for conducive living and learning spaces.

The Department is working on a long term plan to address the provision of student housing across the university sector that will enable the development of approximately 200 000 bed on-campus or close-to-campus student housing over the next ten years, depending on funding made available and the feasibility of new funding models to accelerate development.

The plan is already being implemented as described below:

  • Funding of R1.3 billion was allocated to 16 universities for student housing projects in 2015/16 and 2016/17.
  • A further R1.1 billion has been allocated towards student housing projects during 2017/18. The number of beds that will be provided through this funding has not as yet been determined.
  • The number of additional beds for 2020 onwards will only be known once the Minister approves the infrastructure and efficiency grant budget for the fifth funding cycle (2018/19 to 2020/21).

The Department is aware that many of the existing older student residences are not well maintained and require refurbishment. The Department has made funds available for backlog maintenance and universities are expected to make use of these funds, together with their own funds, for refurbishing residences that do not meet the minimum norms and standards as indicated in the Policy. In the case of private residences, universities undertake an accreditation process of the residences before students funded by NSFAS are placed in these residences.

b) (i)-(ii) The Department has undertaken a survey of the quality of student accommodation at all Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in the past three years.

Fifteen TVET colleges confirmed to have no student accommodation.
Thirty-five TVET colleges confirmed that 99 buildings were identified for student accommodation with an estimated 12 979 beds.

The reported conditions of the 99 buildings for student accommodation are summarised as follows:

  • 8 buildings are in a poor condition (not suitable for habitation);
  • 30 buildings are in a fair condition (functional but require maintenance/ refurbishment); and
  • 61 buildings are in a good condition (functional and in good working order).

(b) When a candidate finishes his/her trade test, the assessor gives immediate feedback in the workshop, including his/her overall results. However, the process is still subject to quality assurance conducted by a moderator. If successful, it then takes a month for a candidate to receive his/her certificate issued by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO). A trade test centre is required to forward the certificate to the candidate once the QCTO has issued.

3. (a) The total cost of trade tests and related services at INDLELA for the financial year 2017/18 as at 12 March 2018 was R80 474 000 made up of R9 306 000 for goods and services, R357 000 for machinery and equipment and the difference of R70 811 000 for remuneration of staff. The current allocation in terms of goods and services, machinery and equipment does not enable improvement of the facility and merely provides for service delivery.

The cost for a trade test to employed candidates varies between a minimum of R220 to a maximum of R500 depending on the trade and for unemployed candidates between R220 and R275 also depending on the trade for which the candidate applies.

b) Included in the trade test fees is the trade test application, registration, testing and certification costs. A trade test applicant only pays the fees if his or her application is successful in meeting the criteria for access to a trade test as regulated under Trade Test Regulations 11(3) or 11(5) or the Artisan Recognition of Prior Learning (ARPL) process.

4. (a) INDLELA works closely with the National Artisan Moderation Body (NAMB) which in the past three years has progressively eliminated unaccredited trade test centres and training providers from the system. The elimination is achieved through allocation of a serial number system which is given only to accredited trade test centres and training providers who meet the minimum accreditation standards. Without this serial number they cannot be registered on the system for trade testing. NAMB continuously performs quality assurance audits at these accredited trade test centres and training providers and those who fall below the minimum quality standard requirements face deregistration.

To improve the success chances of candidates, the Department has, in consultation with business and organised labour, developed and progressively started with the implementation of an ARPL intervention process founded on a tested model. The broader objective of the ARPL intervention is to assist in closing knowledge and skills gaps identified during and after the assessment process. To this effect, ARPL interventions for the welding, boiler making, mechanical fitting, diesel mechanic and motor mechanic trades was implemented nationally on 19 October 2017 and for hairdressing on
6 December 2017. Due to the short period since implementation and considering the process and duration from when an applicant entering the ARPL process to writing a trade test, it is still early to indicate the success rate.

INDLELA has also developed the National Artisan Development Strategy which re-establishes the dual system of apprenticeship training. The implementation date is envisaged to be in April 2019, subject to successful policy development processes.

b) Artisan statistics from INDLELA trade testing indicate a continuously improving pass rate percentage which in the previous 3 years (2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16) on average was 45% yet in 2016/17 financial year improved to 52%.

5. (a) INDLELA hostel has a bed and breakfast facility and can accommodate a total of 100 candidates in hostel rooms, of which 20 rooms are fitted with two single beds for female candidates; 20 rooms are fitted with two single beds for male candidates; and 20 rooms are fitted with a single bed for male candidates.

b) The cost for accommodation including bed and breakfast is R 130 per candidate per day. On average 60 candidates tested at INDLELA per session are utilising the accommodation facility leading to an average occupation rate of around 60% of the facilities.

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

(1)Whether she has found that the directive entitled Rules and Guidelines for the Administration and Management of the Department of Higher Education and Training Technical and Vocational Education and Training College Bursary Scheme for 2018 on 15 December 2017 was issued too late for institutions to properly plan and budget for the 2018 academic year; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) What (a) caused the delay in issuing the directive, (b) is the latest date by which such a directive should ideally be issued in the future and (c) steps will she take to ensure that such important directives will be distributed in time in the future?

Reply:

1. The policy directive entitled Rules and Guidelines for the Administration and Management of the Department of Higher Education and Training’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training College Bursary Scheme (hereafter referred to as the Bursary Rules and Guidelines) for 2018 was issued late in 2017 for TVET Colleges to plan and budget for the 2018 academic year with absolute accuracy ahead of the January 2018 intake of students. The Department revises and updates the Bursary Rules and Guidelines annually to ensure efficient administration of bursaries and to provide greater clarity to Colleges about bursary administration processes. This revision, however, is not a radical shift from year-to-year. Considered amendments are made based on feedback requested from Colleges in the course of the year to improve the administration of the College Bursary Scheme.

2. (a) Over and above the individual written College submissions which were received by the Department for the review of the Bursary Rules and Guidelines, the South African College Principals Organisation (SACPO) requested the Department to convene a consultative meeting of all relevant stakeholders to discuss certain matters that students often challenge in the application of the rules and guidelines. SACPO was of the view that colleges needed to discuss this collectively and then make inputs rather than individually.

The Departmental officials, College Principals, Chief Financial Officers (CFOs), Student Representative Councils (SRCs), South African Further Education and Training Students Association (SAFETSA), and the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) attended the consultative meeting referred to above, which was the first of its nature for this purpose. Following this extensive consultative process, the Department was requested to clearly delineate the RULES as separate from the GUIDELINES in the Bursary Rules and Guidelines policy document. As a result of these amendments, which required careful consideration and approval within the Department, the 2018 Bursary Rules and Guidelines document was released on 15 December 2017. Shortly after the release of the 2018 Bursary Rules and Guidelines, the Presidential announcement of fee-free higher education and training for students from poor and working class families followed, which had further implications for administration of the bursary scheme in TVET Colleges. The amendments to the 2018 Bursary Rules and Guidelines that resulted from the fee-free education announcement, were approved in February 2018.

b) In terms of the annual plans, the Department first has to solicit inputs from all relevant stakeholders for the review, and this process usually culminates in the release of the updated Bursary Rules and Guidelines before the end of September each year for the following academic year.

c) The Department does not foresee a situation similar to the one that occurred in 2017. The Department plans to initiate the review process in May 2018 to ensure that there is sufficient time to finalise this important policy directive by no later than 30 September 2018.

2. Construction of the 10 new Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college campuses has an estimated completion period of 15 months per site from the date of site handover (barring unforeseen delays in construction relating to extension of time requests). At this stage, the Department cannot give an anticipated date for enrolments as 9 of the 10 new sites are currently engaged in the contract award phase and physical construction is yet to commence.

3. (a) Parallel to the construction of the sites is the process of securing operational budgets and start-up capital for the new campuses. At present, there is no funding in the base-line budget of the Department over the Medium Term Expenditure Framework. In addition to requesting funding from National Treasury, the Department will be conducting a funding campaign by inviting the relevant end-users such as Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and industry to play a role in the development and utilisation of the new TVET college campuses. It is critical that role-players buy-in for the resourcing and utilisation of the new sites as part of their mainstream skills delivery planning.

(b) The indicative operational and start-up capital amounts for all 10 campuses are set out in Table 2 below.

(1)What were the details of the decisions by the board of the National Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences that detemined (a) their remuneration and/or allowances, (b) claims for expenditure incurred and (c) any other specified benefits and support enjoyed by board members over the previous three financial years; (2) were any benefits and/or support given to members that were not covered by board decisions, such as office space and support with travel arrangements; if so, what was the (a) nature and (b) extent of the benefits?

Reply:

The National Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (NIHSS) has provided the following responses.

1. (a) The Board was appointed on 27 March 2014. At that stage, the NIHSS was a new organisation and did not have policies and procedures in place. The remuneration of the Board members was therefore aligned to the “2014 Remuneration of Board Members” circular, Category A, Sub-category A2, which indicates that a daily rate of R3 648 shall be paid to the Chairperson and R2 880 to ordinary members. These rates were lowered to R3 500 for the Chairperson and R2 500 for ordinary members.

(b) Claims for expenditure for board members are reimbursed provided it was incurred for the business purposes related to the NIHSS.

(c) There were no specific benefits that accrued to board members, other than
re-imbursement of travel/subsistence or expenditure incurred while carrying out the duties of the NIHSS.

2. Yes.

(a) Office space was provided for meetings held by board members on the NIHSS premises. This was for carrying out the duties of the NIHSS.

(b) This was limited to instances for carrying out the duties of the NIHSS.

Dlamini, Mr MM to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

Whether she has been informed of three cases of alleged sexual harassment laid against certain senior academic staff at the University of Zululand (details furnished); if not, what are the relevant details of the steps that she intends to take in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details of the steps that she has taken in this regard?

Reply:

The Minister is aware of one case of alleged sexual harassment laid against two senior academic staff at the University of Zululand. The Department or Ministry is not aware of the details of the two case numbers submitted by the member.

The Minister notes that in terms of South Africa’s criminal justice system it is important that in such cases the law takes its course. The Higher Education Act (No 101, of 1997) provides for specific intervention by the Minister if the public higher education institution has failed to comply with any law of the country.

(1)Whether returning students have to (a) apply and (b) submit proof of household income annually for renewed support from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS); if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, why; (2) By what percentage has the limit in household income to qualify for full support from the NSFAS been adjusted annually since its inception?

Reply:

  1. Returning students who applied for, and qualified for, funding through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) in the 2017 academic year do not need to reapply for NSFAS funding in 2018. Students are not required to provide proof of family income annually. Once they have been selected for funding they will be supported to complete their qualification provided they continue to meet the academic requirements, i.e. have passed 50% of their courses and are on track to complete in n+2 years.
  2. The increase in percentage of combined household income to qualify for full support from NSFAS has been adjusted by 186.8% from R122 000 per annum in 2017 to R350 000 in 2018. This is the first time that the threshold in household income has been adjusted since the inception of NSFAS.

(1)With reference to her reply to question 3572 on 2 January 2018, what (a) are the reasons for the high number and relatively high percentage of invoices that are unpaid for more than 120 days by AgriSeta, W&R Seta, Services, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme and the SA Qualification Authority, (b) steps have been taken since her reply to address the issues leading to the delays and (c) is the current age analysis of unpaid invoices for each of the specified entities; (2) Whether she will take any steps to ensure that all future invoices of the entities will be paid within 30 days; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

Public entities mentioned below have provided the following responses to the questions posed.

1. (a) Wholesale and Retail Sector Education Training Authority (W&RSETA) Service providers and stakeholders submit non-compliant invoices in terms of the contract deliverables. W&RSETA currently has a backlog on certificates, which is one of the deliverables to prove completion of training. This is impacting negatively on the processing of tranche payments (final payments) on projects as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is the only individual who can sign these certificates. An acting CEO was appointed in January 2018 and the certificate backlog is being addressed. In terms of the payment process, there must also be a monitoring and evaluation phase before the service provider can submit an invoice. A number of service providers simply submit invoices before the monitoring and evaluation phase is completed, thereby rendering the invoices non-compliant.

(b) An acting CEO was appointed in January 2018; this will assist in ensuring that the backlog on certification is addressed. Stakeholder sessions were conducted to further explain and capacitate stakeholders on the contracting, invoicing and payment processes of W&RSETA. There are quarterly progress reports to the Board and stakeholders through the Board meetings and stakeholder forums.

(c) The current age analysis for unpaid invoices is provided below:

a) National Student Financial Aid Scheme - Accounts older than 120 days are the result of verification processes that need to be completed before invoices can be settled. Most accounts are settled within a period of less than 120 days. The verification process includes:

  • Confirmation of banking details;
  • Users need to confirm that goods received or services delivered are in good order; and
  • Invoice(s) need to be matched to approved purchase orders.

b) Accounts older than 120 days are being monitored on a weekly basis and followed up with users and suppliers to resolve issues that could delay payments.

a) Services SETA - To ensure accountability of public funds, Services SETA adopted a performance based payment model. If invoices are submitted without the following documents, they are declared non-compliant:

  • Approved budget;
  • Commencement letter; and
  • Supporting documents for claims.

b) Services SETA regularly follows up on non-compliant invoices, conducting capacitation workshops and has published the payment guidelines on its website. Despite these efforts, training providers continue to submit non-compliant invoices. The majority of these non-compliant invoices are submitted during the start-up phases of the projects, subsequent to new allocations and with some providers submitting documentation without actual training having being provided.

a) South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) - The outstanding balances for more than 30 to over 120 days relate to funds that were paid to clients that utilise the Foreign Qualifications Evaluations and Advisory Services. These refunds were processed for payment but were rejected by the bank and returned to SAQA due to invalid account details or closed banking accounts. These refunds remain on the age analysis until the client is traced and correct banking details are submitted to SAQA for effecting the payment.

b) Efforts are made to trace these clients on a regular basis using the contact details provided at the application stage. It becomes difficult when the client(s) have left the country or changed their contact details. SAQA has also assigned additional staff to deal with the tracing of these clients.

c) The current age analysis for unpaid invoices are provided below:

  • Outstanding supporting documents.
  • Accruals that were not ready to be paid due to outstanding supporting documents.
  • Invoices that were submitted to AgriSETA with old invoice dates. These invoices were recognised retrospectively.
  • Invoices that were delivered late by hotels to Travel With Flair and Club Travel for submission to AgriSETA.
  • Some of invoices were subsequently replaced with corrected invoices and old invoices were cancelled. These include invoices that were duplicated.

b) AgriSETA took a resolution to in-source invoice capturing and payments to ensure early detection and correction of discrepancies.

2. It is important to note that each Council / Board of a public entity in terms of the Public Finance Management Act, 1999 (Act No. 1 of 1999) is accountable for the operations of the entity.

The Department will issue a circular addressed to all public entities reporting to it to put measures in place to prevent the delay of payments for valid invoices by no later than 30 days. Public entities will also be requested to provide an age analysis of outstanding invoices together with their respective quarterly reports.

Has her department planned for the additional capacity required in order to manage the significantly increased budgets for the maintenance and/or upgrading of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges in the 2018-19 financial year; if not, (a) what needs to be done in order to ensure effective administration of these funds and (b) has she found that the funds allocated for maintenance of TVET colleges will be spent in this period; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

a) In terms of the new Infrastructure and Efficiency Grant, the Department is currently engaging National Treasury for a possible budget adjustment during the 2018/19 Adjusted Estimates of National Expenditure dedicated for infrastructure monitoring and expenditure evaluation purposes. The Department is also exploring the possibility of creating additional capacity at TVET college level utilising dedicated Clerks to report on the utilisation of the Infrastructure and Efficiency Grant to the Department.

b) The Department is currently collecting data from TVET colleges with regards to essential and bulk services to inform the allocation of the Infrastructure and Efficiency Grant to colleges based on the need identified for critical repairs and maintenance. This process is expected to be completed in June 2018. Taking into account that TVET colleges will be required to follow their supply chain management processes, there is the possibility that the full R1.3 billion will not be fully utilised by 31 March 2019. These funds will however be ring-fenced at TVET colleges and regulated by the Department through specific terms and conditions issued. Thus, any unspent allocations from the 2018/19 financial year will be rolled over to 2019/20, as it is critical that value for money is obtained and to prevent fruitless or unnecessary expenditure.

Whether she has found that the annual targets set by her department are (a) addressing all areas critical to her department and the entities reporting to her to achieve its mandate and (b) ambitious enough to ensure that the Higher Education and Training sector will perform in line with those of other countries with similar opportunities and challenges to those of South Africa; if not, what changes to her department’s set targets would she consider in order to measure performance in critical areas in the future?

Reply:

a) The targets do address areas that are critical to the Department’s mandate. The Department’s targets and that of its entities, were set taking into account the National Development Plan (NDP), White Paper for Post-School Education and Training and the 2014 - 2019 Medium-Term Strategic Framework (MTSF).

The targets in the Department’s Strategic and Annual Performance Plans aim to create an enabling environment for the realisation of a “skilled and capable workforce to support an inclusive growth path”. Critical to this are targeted interventions to steer the Post-School Education and Training (PSET) system, e.g. the development of steering mechanisms to ensure that the system operates based on sound legislative frameworks, improved capacity through infrastructural development, provision of teaching and learning support services, as well as the facilitation of a strong stakeholder network. The Department has been phasing in these interventions since the adoption of the 2014 MTSF.

The Annual Performance Plan reflects these as the direct outputs of the Department over and above the planned performance targets of educational institutions, i.e. universities, Technical and Vocational Education and Training colleges, Community Education and Training colleges and its entities.

b) Due consideration of international contexts were made during the development of the NDP and MTSF targets. The Department is confident that the higher education and training sector will over time perform in line with other countries facing similar opportunities and challenges to South Africa. The implementation of the MTSF and NDP targets within this sector is progressive in many fronts, e.g. with regard to the national aim of increasing enrolments in higher education, as envisaged by the NDP and the White Paper, the university system is already achieving 61% of the 2030 target of 1.6 million student headcount enrolment at public higher education institutions. The system is also responding positively to Government’s research development priorities set out in the NDP and MTSF targets. Artisan development is at 71% of the NDP target of 30 000 artisans per annum by 2030, to mention but a few.

Notwithstanding this, the Department is aware that more still needs to be done and not all the challenges of the PSET system can be resolved in the short-term. Government’s next MTSF will continue to inform the plans and the targets of the Department going forward.

(1)Whether the technical, vocational education and training (TVET) colleges might only offer programmes on level 5 and 6 in the longer term; (2) what is the Government’s policy position on the role of TVET colleges within the education and training spectrum in the longer term; (2) whether the role of TVET colleges is to change in the future; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the envisaged timelines?

Reply:

  1. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges will continue to offer programmes as long as they are responsive to labour market demands. For articulation purposes, colleges will offer programmes at level 5 and 6 in the main occupational and vocational programmes, and some mid-level occupational programmes. Currently some colleges are offering Higher Certificates at level 5 in partnership with Universities and Universities of Technology, which allows students to articulate from level 4 to level 5 programmes.
  2. Government expects that TVET colleges will become the cornerstone of the country’s skills development system as captured in the White Paper for Post-School Education and Training. TVET colleges are central to the provision of skills within the post-school education and training system. The main purpose of TVET colleges is to train young school leavers, with the required skills, knowledge and attitudes for employment or self-employment within the labour market, or to access higher learning.
  3. Fundamentally, the role of TVET colleges will not change. Its purpose has been, and will continue to be the supplier of mid-level skilled workers to the labour market. What needs to change is the responsiveness of colleges to such demands. In this regard, the Department is working towards transforming programme offerings in colleges, so that they become more responsive to the labour market. In some instances, the current curricula will have to be updated to make them more relevant. The latter process is ongoing in priority programme areas. Several occupational qualifications have also been developed which allows colleges to offer them on demand. The complete revision of college programmes and curricula is a medium to long-term process.

(1)(a)What amount of funding support does the National Student Financial Aid Scheme currently provide to a full-time student requiring accommodation at technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges, (b) what are the details of the process followed to determine this amount of funding support, (c) what is the detailed breakdown of the expense of what this amount of financial support is supposed to cover, (d) how many days of accommodation will a student have to budget for while undertaking full-time studies at a TVET college in each academic year and (e) how does the amount of financial support given to a student studying at a TVET college compare to that given to a student studying at a university; (2) Whether she has been informed of any instances where a TVET college (a) is not providing and/or (b) would rather not provide student accommodation due to substandard services; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are

Reply:

(1) (a) The maximum amount that may be awarded for accommodation to a full-time student for the 2018 academic year is R22 019 per annum.

(b) The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is responsible for making a determination on whether student applications are successful or unsuccessful in so far as their tuition fees are concerned. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges are responsible for making a determination on the applications for travel and accommodation allowances, subject to the availability of funds, after NSFAS has determined whether or not a student qualifies for financial aid.

In making a final determination on the award for the accommodation allowance, the College Financial Aid Committee is required to consider, inter alia, the actual accommodation costs and rental agreement in the case of private accommodation. In the light of this, the amount awarded for accommodation may vary from one student to another.

(c) The award for accommodation is inclusive of meals. In making a determination on the award for accommodation, the College Financial Aid Committee must consider including meals in instances where students do not receive meals from the landlord. Furthermore, colleges and landlords in the case of private accommodation must provide at least three meals a day.

(d) Taking into account the TVET college calendar for 2018, a student will require 279 days of accommodation whilst undertaking full-time studies at a TVET college. The 279 days takes into account, amongst others, the dates on which classes commence, lecturing days, examination days and the dates on which colleges close.

(e) There is a significant difference between the amounts of financial support given to a student studying at a TVET college to that of a student studying at a university. Firstly, each TVET college student enrolled in a Ministerially-funded programme is subsidised by the State at 80% of the total programme cost. Secondly, the difference of 20% of the total programme costs, which constitutes tuition fees, must be recovered from the student. However, in respect of qualifying students, NSFAS covers the 20% component of the total programme costs.

In addition to tuition fees, NSFAS covers transport or accommodation allowance (inclusive of meals) for qualifying students, subject to the availability of funds as per each individual institution's allocation. Finally, each TVET college student, regardless of being funded by NSFAS or not, receives textbooks and other essentials, such as protective gear for practical work.

(2) (a) There are instances where TVET colleges do not have student residential facilities or the college has limited capacity to accommodate all qualifying students in its residences.

(b) Colleges are required to support all students who qualify for accommodation. In this regard, colleges must consider conducive private accommodation in instances where there are limited spaces in college residences, or there are no college residences. Colleges have a responsibility to ensure that students are accommodated in facilities that do not provide a substandard service.

However, it must be noted that priority is given to college residences and as such, private accommodation may only be considered if college residences are already filled to capacity or in instances where the TVET college does not have student residential facilities.

(a) What was the (i) brief and (ii) findings of the forensic investigation that was ordered by her predecessor into allegations of fraud and corruption involving recipients of financial aid from the National Students Financial Aid Scheme in the 2015-16 financial year, (b) what measures were put in place in order to ensure that funding provided is used prudently and correctly in response to the (i) findings of the forensic audit and/or (ii) allegations, (c) who undertook the forensic investigation, (d) what were the costs of the investigation and (e) what approach was followed by the investigation to ensure that all kinds of reported abuse was covered?

Reply:

a) The Department of Higher Education and Training appointed Nexus Forensic Services on 23 September 2015 to conduct an investigation into allegations of fraud and corruption in the allocation of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) at ten identified public universities, and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges.

(i) Terms of Reference of the investigation:

To conduct a comprehensive audit for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 academic years to determine the extent of misrepresentation and fraud committed by students who qualified and have received financial aid, including parents and guardians, employees of universities; public TVET colleges, NSFAS and individuals who have manipulated financial aid processes to defraud NSFAS.

The audit must include:

  • Applicants and family members/guardians who have knowingly provided false information on their applications for financial aid;
  • Applicants who have intentionally misrepresented their family income by purposefully providing false information on the certification of affidavits in terms of Section 9 of the Justice of Peace and Commissioners of Oaths Act 16 of 1963 and Regulations under the Act;
  • The validity of affidavits submitted and signed in terms of Sections 5, 6 and 7 of the Justice of Peace and Commissioners of Oaths Act 16 of 1963 and applicable Regulations;
  • The allegations of persons who impersonate Commissioners of Oath in order to certify falsified documentation to defraud NSFAS for personal gain;
  • Applicants who have purposefully altered documentation used in the validation of the financial aid application and approval process that resulted in the receipt of financial aid;
  • Service providers who collude with students to defraud the NSFAS;
  • Staff at financial aid offices at universities; TVET colleges and NSFAS who deliberately do not comply with NSFAS and donor guidelines on eligibility and academic criteria to defraud the NSFAS;
  • Nepotism and conflict of interests in the allocation of NSFAS financial aid at financial aid offices at public universities and TVET colleges; and
  • The identification of the shortcomings and weaknesses in the NSFAS loan and bursary system including the current NSFAS guidelines and rules applicable to universities and public TVET colleges, with clear recommendations to address fraud risks identified.

The investigation should be concluded within 12 months. The Department may decide to extend the investigation based on the extent of allegations of fraud and corruption at a particular institution.

(ii) The final report of the investigation was submitted to the Department on
15 March 2018.

b) (i)-(ii) The report is being analysed and measures based on the findings and recommendations will be considered.

c) Nexus Forensic Services (Pty) Ltd

d) R2 053 249.07

e) The investigation was undertaken in phases. Phase 1 consisted of the analysis of data and supporting documentation aimed at identifying fraud risks across the ten selected institutions. The Phase 1 report was presented to the Minister of Higher Education and Training on 10 March 2016. During Phase 1, Nexus Forensic Services (NFS) identified specific cases of students (identity numbers) and institutions who had been “red flagged” for further investigation in Phase 2.

Phase 2 of the investigation involved the original data analyses from Phase 1 being verified and/or compared with the student application information and the institutions’ final year reports. The NFS provided their report on Phase 2 to the Minister of Higher Education and Training on 14 March 2017. The Phase 2 report pointed to possible irregularities in the allocation of funds to some students.

The NFS identified different categories of potential irregularities, with a number of discrepancies within each category. They recommended that where there were a large percentage of alleged irregularities, samples of these categories should be further investigated in order to determine the veracity of the findings on the data. The Minister agreed that the investigation be extended, and that this would constitute the third and final phase of the investigation. The final report, once received, should provide details of the scale of irregularities and advice on mechanisms to ensure that these are dealt with systemically.

Whether all staff members working at the Central Johannesburg Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college were taken to the Indaba Hotel for a weekend in or around September 2017; if so, (a) what amount did the event cost the college and (b) what are the full details of the programme during the weekend; (2) whether the staffing bill of the TVET college is within the 63% upper limit for staff costs set by her department; if not, what are the (a) details and (b) reasons in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether any advertisements seeking new staff have been placed recently; if so, (4) are the specified advertisements for positions that are already filled; if so, on what grounds were the advertisements placed?

Reply:

1. Not all staff members were taken to the Indaba hotel for the workshop. The workshop was specifically for the lecturing staff. The academic workshop was held on 18 September 2017 and 154 academic staff members attended. The staff comes from eight different campuses offering more than 40 Report 191 (NATED) N1–N6 and National Certificate Vocational L2–L4 programmes. Six office-based educators working in the Centre for Academic Support facilitated the workshop.

a) The amount spent for the workshop was R95 109.00. The per capita costs, including conference facilities and refreshments, amounted to R595.43 per person.

b) The programme that outlines the aspects discussed during the workshop is attached. The Centre for Academic Support is based in the Office of the Deputy Principal: Academic and responsible for the planning, delivery and quality assurance of teaching, learning and assessment practices.

The purpose of this workshop was to share, communicate and deliberate on the newly developed Quality Assurance of Assessment Practices NCV L2 –L4 and NATED N1-N6 system. The College developed the system based on input received from educators and staff. A booklet was also printed as a reference guide and tools for educators and staff.

2. The staff cost percentage is 60.95% and within the 63% limit set by the Department.

3. The College advertised four Council posts. The recruitment process was stopped when the unions raised concerns regarding these posts, as they believed that the College already had individuals occupying these posts. Although not correct, Management decided that it was best to stop the process in the interest of clarifying this misunderstanding.

4. The advertisement was for the recruitment of new staff into four critical vacant posts.

No.

The College established a unit called Innovation Linkages and Development to align its strategic objectives to that of the Department. The College had redeployed a Senior Team Member to head up this unit, which is responsible for managing ±20 public-private partnership contracts / agreements with various partners. The Manager accepted a promotional post as a Deputy Principal at the Gauteng Community College, which has left a huge gap at the College threatening the collapse of this unit given the vital role it plays.

The College has eight satellite and a main campus with nett assets in excess of R300 million and only one Facilities Official. Additional capacity is required to assist with key strategic issues of planning, budgeting, and maintenance and repairs of the assets.

The College faces many challenges as outlined in the Auditor-General reports. The key issue being that the Human Resource Manager needs support as a number of interns are currently providing this support.

The College does not have a Marketing Senior Officer / Manager since the post was vacated in 2012 and this unit, consisting of four Marketing Officers, requires a Manager to provide strong leadership and strategic direction.

These four Council posts have been re-tabled at the Council meeting of 7 December 2017 and Council resolved that the posts be re-advertised.

With regard to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and the ongoing protests taking place at the specified institution, (a) what is the total number of students who have been awarded funding by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) but have not yet received their funding for 2017 and (b) of these students, what is the total number that has not received the funding due to (i) not having had Loan Agreement Forms (LAF) generated by NSFAS, (ii) not having signed the LAF that has been generated by NSFAS and/or (iii) another administrative error; (2) did the student representative council transport students to the NSFAS offices to sign their LAFs in person due to an administrative error by NSFAS in the online process; if so, what steps has NSFAS taken to fix the problem; (3) (a) what number of students have not received NSFAS allowances for food since 30 August 2017 and (b) what measures will her department take to urgently address the administrative failures of NSFAS?

Reply:

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has provided the following responses to the questions posed.

1. (a) As at 15 December 2017, NSFAS reported that 7 713 students registered at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) had been awarded funding and 2 169 of these students had not received payments.

(b) (i) 52 Students’ LAFSOPs (Loan Agreement Forms and Schedule of Particulars) could not be generated by NSFAS due to course code mismatches between the data from the institution and NSFAS records on the system.

  (ii) 1 294 Students had not signed their LAFSOPs.

  (iii) 823 Students payments were being processed.

NSFAS is not aware of any student that has not received funding due to any other administration error.

2. NSFAS is not aware if the SRC arranged transport to NSFAS offices. NSFAS arranged for their Servicing Team to visit the institution to assist students with signing their LAFSOPs in August and October 2017. Both attempts were not successful as the students were protesting at that time, and campuses were closed. NSFAS then generated paper-based LAFSOPs, which the Financial Aid Office at CPUT collected and contacted students individually to sign these agreements. Those that were signed were returned to NSFAS for processing.

3. (a) 2 169 students as outlined above.

(b) The Department of Higher Education and Training met with the Executive Committee (EXCO) of Universities South Africa and NSFAS on
15 June 2017 to address the administration issues raised by students, SRC Presidents and Secretaries General to discuss the challenges experienced during the 2017 roll out of the new student centred model and NSFAS’ proposed 2018 implementation plan. A joint task team was established to address the 2017 challenges and plans for the 2018 application cycle. The task team has been meeting since 15 June 2017 and progress related to the 2017 and 2018 processes is being closely monitored. In addition, NSFAS has deployed servicing teams to institutions where additional on-site support has been required.

Profile picture: van der Westhuizen, Mr AP

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

(1)Whether her department has initiated or undertaken any investigations into the reported leaks of examination papers and memoranda during the November 2017 examinations at any technical and vocational education and training college; if so, (a) what corrective steps have been or will be taken to bring an end to the repeated leaks of examination papers and (b) which subjects were compromised by the leaks of examination papers during the November 2017 examinations; (2) Were all the cases reported to the (a) relevant quality assurance bodies and/or (b) SA Police Service; if so, what are the case numbers allocated to the charges; (3) Based on the spelling and other errors in the memoranda that were leaked, which steps in the examination process and/or sections within her department are currently under investigation as probable areas for the leaks; (4) Why was the decision taken to (a) go ahead with the original examination paper and (b) issue marks for Mathematics N3 in the November 2017 examination, despite her department being informed before the scheduled examination that both the paper and memorandum have been leaked to some candidates; (5) (a) How many (i) candidates and (ii) campuses were affected by the leaks and distribution of the paper and memorandum for the Mathematics N3 prior the set date for November 2017 examination and (b) what is the name of each person and/or body that decided to award marks to candidates of examination centres implicated in the leaks, but not to students who reported the leaks to the authorities?

Reply:

(1)

(a)

  1. The Department has initiated and undertaken an investigation into the reported leakage of examination papers in November 2017 in some Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges. Forensic investigators were appointed by the Department and they have already uncovered some evidence related to the leakage of question papers and further investigation is underway. Depending on the findings and recommendations of the forensic investigations, the necessary corrective actions will be taken, e.g. if officials have been implicated, criminal and/or misconduct charges will be laid; where there is a breach in controls, these will be improved; senior managers who allowed ineffective controls will face consequence management, etc.
 

(b)

The following 5 NATED Engineering question papers leaked during the November 2017 examination, i.e. Mathematics N2, Industrial Electronics N2, Mathematics N3, Engineering Science N3 and Mechanotechnology N3.

(2)

(a)

The Chief Directorate: National Examinations and Assessment shared its irregularity report with the quality assurance body, Umalusi.

 

(b)

All instances of question paper leakages were reported to the South African Police Service and the Directorate: Special Investigations.

The errors and spelling mistakes on the leaked memoranda implies that it was not the final version and possibly emanated from the section involved in the drafting stage of these examination papers.

(4)

(a)

The leakage was brought to the attention of the Department shortly after the paper had been written and not before as alleged. The standard operating procedure in these instances is to withdraw and replace the paper where possible.

 

(b)

Where a paper has been written, marks are released if the examiners and moderators report confirms that statistically there is no indication of the students having access to leaked papers.

(5)

(a)

(i)

Three (3) candidates.

   

(ii)

Three (3) campuses.

 

(b)

The audit of all scripts for the implicated centres were conducted during the marking process and auditors (chief markers and experienced markers) used the following criteria to evaluate the candidates’ responses:

  • Similar pattern of responses across scripts, where high marks were achieved in individual questions or across all questions, which suggests that candidates had prior knowledge and/or possession of the question paper.
  • Any other pattern that may suggest that candidates (individuals or groups) had prior knowledge and/or possession of the question paper.
  • Range of marks achieved across the candidates at a centre is unusually high when compared to the previous examination(s) cycle.

After an investigation or auditing of scripts, it was found that that leakage was limited to three candidates across three campuses.

Bucwa, Ms H to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)With reference to her reply to question 3221 on 30 November 2017, on what basis was her department’s tender for the organising of events on 20 May 2016 deemed urgent, when it was indicated in the specified reply that the need for the service was identified some six months earlier; (2) what (a) are the details of the bidders that responded to the specified tender, (b) amount did each bidder tender for, (c) criteria were used to award the tender and (d) weighting was applied to each of the criterion for each bidder; (3) (a) what are the details of Batsumi Travel (Pty) Ltd’s experience in organising and managing events and (b) on what basis was the specified tender awarded to the specified company; (4) what are the full details in terms of dates, venues, purposes, sizes and final costs of each event organised by the company for her department to date

Reply:

1. The tender for organising of events was deemed urgent based on the following:

  • The Department of Higher Education and Training at the time had cancelled a bid to make provision in the revised terms of reference for emerging business to contend.
  • In the interim, the Department participated in a contract for events management services of the Department of Basic Education that was nearing its expiry date at the end of December 2015.
  • Thereto, numerous request for events and related services were received and due to the monetary threshold, deviation approval of either the accounting officer or National Treasury was necessary. This was undesirable as it would lead to an increase in administrative duties and delays in the procuring of services. The hosting of the then Mandela Day Career Festival was one such event, which required specialised labour and skills not available within the Department.

(1)(a) By what date will the National Senior Certificate for Adults be rolled out and (b) what (i) amount of funding has her department requested from the National Treasury for the rollout and (ii) is the detailed breakdown of the costs that will be covered by the funding; (2) Whether she has found that the entities involved in the quality assurance of the final assessments and issuing of the certificates for the specified qualification are ready for action once the qualification is rolled out; if not, what is the position in this regard; (3) Whether any steps have been taken to ensure that the specified qualification will be recognised for suitable employment and/or admission to further higher education and training institutions?

Reply:

1. (a) The date of the rollout of the National Senior Certificate for Adults (NASCA) has not been determined without a committed budget allocation for the rollout.

(b) (i) The Department has requested R3.48 billion for the rollout of the NASCA in 2018/19, R3.68 billion in 2019/20 and R3.87 billion in 2020/21 financial years; and

(ii) The approach adopted for budget estimates was based on programme funding targeting 100 000 students. Elements within the programme funding include personnel, goods and services, and capital expenditure.

2. The development of the NASCA has been done in collaboration with Umalusi as the Quality Council for general and further education and training. Umalusi has indicated that capacity to quality assure and issue certificates will be available once the rollout of the NASCA takes place.

3. The Department has developed the draft admission policy for candidates wanting access to Higher Education Institutions. University Registrars, Universities South Africa (USAf) and the Council on Higher Education (CHE) were consulted with regards to admission into university.

Consultation has also taken place with private providers and employer structures on the design of the qualification, curriculum development process and related regulations and policies. Further continuing work will need to be done with public and private employers regarding the recognition of the NASCA for employment purposes.

(ii) The reason for the variances is due to a combination of the following factors, which are not specific to any particular institution:

  • Returning NSFAS students are eligible for continuous funding and are automatically funded by NSFAS for the next academic year/semester, provided they pass their modules and meet the progression requirements of the course and institution. Some universities submitted the academic results late to NSFAS;
  • Requests from institutions to do “top up” allowances throughout the academic year. Tuition and allowance payments to institutions and students are initially made based on registration data that is sent by the university to NSFAS at the start of the academic year. However, during the year, universities submit tuition and allowance adjustments after NSFAS has received the original registration files, processed tuition and initial allowance payments. This situation was exacerbated by the increased volume of “top up” allowances processed in 2017;
  • Given that 2017 represented the first year that NSFAS systems were integrated with institutional student funding systems, there were challenges experienced with the transfer of registration information. These included instances where the course code information at universities did not match the NSFAS records and where allowance values and tuition values have not been transferred in the required format to NSFAS systems;
  • Challenges experienced with ensuring that students signed their Loan Agreement Forms/Statement of Particulars (LAFSOPs). This is partially attributed to the frequency with which students change their cell phone numbers. Efforts to ensure that NSFAS staff have been present and visible at campuses to assist in the signing of these LAFSOPs have been ongoing through the latter half of the year and has made a significant difference to the effectiveness of the LAFSOPs signing process. In addition, in some instances, NSFAS has made paper-based forms available to universities for signature and then reviewed and reconciled by NSFAS prior to payment. From 2018, students will be able to change their cell phone numbers online by accessing the MyNSFAS Portal; and
  • In some cases, due to unexpected NSFAS system time-outs, a full funding processing cycle was not completed resulting in incomplete student loans being created in the systems. As a consequence, lengthy manual checks and reconciliations needed to be performed to ensure that correct loan accounts were created and allowances subsequently disbursed.

(c) (i) NSFAS has communicated with students in the following ways in an effort to increase awareness of the importance of students’ signing their loan or bursary agreements:

  • Media releases;
  • Social media, for instance, Twitter and Facebook; and
  • Direct SMS’s and emails sent to students.

(ii) NSFAS is busy with the “close-off” of all 2017 funding and allowance processing to ensure that all eligible funded students receive any allowances that are still due to them. Additionally, there are a number of projects introduced, which have the objective of improving the funding and allowance disbursement process in 2018. All processes will be automated and data exception reporting will be implemented.

(iii) None.
