(b) The purpose of accommodation charges, whilst engendering the culture of total
cost of accommodation within user departments, is to collect enough revenue, at
minimum, to sustain the entity’s portfolio at a specific level.

The current rate charged for state owned accommodation is based on the original calculations as performed in 2005 when certain accommodation budgets were devolved to Client Departments. In calculating the baseline information, the Department considered the different facility types in its property portfolio. It was not possible to calculate this amount on a per-property basis owing to the magnitude of the portfolio and the specific information that was not available at that time. This was done for all facility types which resulted in different rates proposed per facility type. The average rate was calculated at R23.74 per square meter (m2).

Although the average rate per facility was R23.74m2, the Department of Public Works could only devolve the funds it had in its Maintenance and Property Rates budgets baseline. The distribution of funds per Client Department had to be scaled down to fit into this baseline and was reduced on a pro-rata basis. The average of R23.74m2 was therefore reduced to R4.74m2 at introduction and has escalated to an approximate amount of R16.00m².

The amount devolved (and subsequently charged back) was not enough to cover the self-sustainable target level. As part of the devolution framework, it was indicated that the Department would have to receive at least a 15% growth on this amount to reach the desired funding level by 2017. At that point, it would be possible to maintain properties at its current level. During the time lapse from 2006 to 2017, the portfolio would further deteriorate except where specific intervention took place. This is referred to as “backlog maintenance” which would be funded separately.

While it is possible to indicate how much each department is currently paying, it is not possible to aggregate the information down per facility or per Province as the amount is paid on National level.

The abovementioned devolution and charge-back methodology is being reviewed currently with a view to align with operatinalisation of the PMTE.

Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Public Works

Is he aware of any (a) transfers due but not paid over to provinces from his department and/or (b) money from his department transferred to provinces but not paid to municipalities for services, rates and taxes yet; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?

Reply:

a) All transfers have been made in line with the payment schedule as approved by National Treasury. The Department is only responsible for the EPWP Incentive Grant for Provinces.

b) The devolution of the property rates fund grant to provinces as the allocated funding for property rates was phased into the equitable share in 2013/14. This therefore means that the Department does not make transfers to provinces for property rates and service charges as it is part of their equitable share.

(a) Why has the biotrade permit number IEP 005 of Schibuna Aloe not been renewed yet despite all documentation being submitted at least five months ago and (b) by what date will the renewal of the specified permits be finalised so that the business can continue to export aloe juice and pay its 213 aloe tappers; (2) what (a) measures has the department put in place to ensure that existing biotrade permits are not reassigned to businesses or individuals that do not comply with all the necessary standards and (b) steps will she take to ensure that the unnecessarily long delays in renewal of permits are resolved more efficiently in the future?

Reply:

(a) Schibuna Aloe’s application was subjected to internal processes which involves the evaluation by the Bioprospecting Advisory Committee (BAC) comprised of internal and external stakeholders and ensuing consultations with the applicant. Upon receipt of the recommendations by the BAC, key fundamental gaps on fair and equitable sharing of benefits with communities were identified which needed further engagement with the applicant.

(b) The issuing of the permit will be finalised as soon as the applicant has satisfactorily addressed the fair and equitable sharing of benefits with communities. (Approval has been given, however, for the applicant to continue with the export of aloe juice in the interim, pending the completion of these processes)

2. (a) The Bioprospecting Access and Benefit Sharing (BABS) Amendment Regulations provide the criteria that must be taken into consideration before a biotrade permit can be issued and /or renewed.

(b) The department places high value on the role of bioprospecting and biotrade in facilitating fairness and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of biological resources. Recent interventions include but are not limited to institutional strengthening, regulatory amendments and enhancement of the assessment processes.

Reply:

The Ekurhuleni Metropolitan municipality through the Gauteng Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs provided the information:

(1) Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Council disaster management vehicles did not respond and arrive on the scene at about 11:30 pm.

Section 49(1) of the Disaster Management Act, Act 57 of 2002 requires municipalities to immediatelyinitiate efforts to assess the severity and magnitude of a disaster. Assessments are conducted in line with disaster management plans developed in terms of section 43. As per legislative requirements and disaster management plans, City of Ekurhuleni Disaster & Emergency Management Services (DEMS) Department`s operational preparedness and response to incidents starts when the first early warning message is received.

In the case of the severe thunderstorm that occurred on 09 November 2016, the first warning message from the South African Weather Service (SAWS) was received at 14:15 followed by another one at 16:32. Immediately after the receipt of the first warning, the municipality`s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) were activated. These SOP include notifying stakeholders such as the senior disaster management officials, station manager and councilors on the DEMS database about the warning from SAWS and informing them of the activation of the Joint Operations Centre (JOC). Following the occurrence of the storm (which occurred at approximately 17:00), Disaster Management Officials and the Emergency Services Station Managers immediately began to assess the impact of storm all areas including Edenvale.

(2)(a) Ekurhuleni does not have a disaster management depot and is not legally obligated to have a depot.

(b) Legally the municipality is required to establish a disaster management centre in terms of section 43 of the Disaster Management Act, Act 57 of 2002. It must be noted that the offices in Bedfordview are the headquarters of the Disaster and Emergency Management Services (DEMS) department that includes the Disaster Management Division and the Disaster Management Centre.

(3)(a) The City`s disaster management response plans were followed during the flooding. As per legislative requirements and disaster management plans, City of Ekurhuleni Disaster & Emergency Management Services (DEMS) Department`s operational preparedness and response to incidents starts when the first early warning message is received disaster management department.

(i) For the Roads and Storm Water Department, the City of Ekurhuleni annually provides maintenance budgets per region as well as per depot. In the case of Edenvale Roads and Storm Water Depot, the regional amount allocated for 2016/17 for Stormwater maintenance was R1, 327,000.

Reply:

By way of background, the redetermination of boundaries by the Municipal Demarcation Board during 2013 and 2015 resulted in a decrease of 21 local municipalities from 278 to 257 municipalities (districts, locals and metros). These major determinations were either as a result of amalgamations or the splitting of municipalities and subsequent incorporation into neighbouring municipalities. As a result of the above, there were 26 municipalities whose boundaries were changed post the 3 August 2016 local government elections.

In preparing a response for the Honourable Member, the Departments of Cooperative Governance engaged the 26 affected municipalities through provincial departments responsible for local government.

It must be noted that even those municipalities that indicated that they had made purchases, did not supply all information as requested. The status of responses as provided to the Department is as follows:

Reply:

1. The difference is as a result of Mikondzo events which were held in the beginning of the financial year, before the companies were accredited. The response to Parliamentary Question 2018 indicated all the amounts paid to the accredited companies, from the date of their accreditation in June 2016 and also included one event which was held on 12 May 2017, which is in fact in the 2017/18 financial year.

The response to parliamentary question 2019 is not complete, and the amounts indicated are not accurate. I apologise for the inaccurate information submitted.

2. The Mikondzo events managed by the accredited companies were not separate to those indicated in the reply to question 2019. However, as indicated, the response to parliamentary question 2019 was not complete.

The amounts paid to the accredited companies were funded from the retained surplus within SASSA, and therefore did not reflect on the budget.

(1)With reference to her reply to question 2019 on 9 October 2017, in which she gives a breakdown of the number of Mikondzo events that were held in each province, as well as the associated costs, why were 20 events held in KwaZulu-Natal and only one or two events held in the remainder of the provinces, which total to only 11 events; (2) in view of the specified reply which states that the total cost of the specified events amounted to R10 098 290 976, although the budget was only R62 500 000, (a) why did her department overspend billions of Rands on the events and (b) in which budgeted line item were these billions reflected; (3) whether any virements were necessary to pay for the overspend; if so, (a)(i) from which budgeted line item and (ii) in which programmes were the specified virements made, (b) what percentage of the specified budgeted line item was used for the virements, (c) who authorised such virements and (d) were the large virements authorised by the Treasury; (4) with reference to her specified reply in which it is stated that the budget allocation of each event was R2 500 000, but according to the actual expenditure costs the average cost of each event was R325 million, from where did she obtain the specified figures?

Reply:

1. The reply to Parliamentary Question 2019 indicated that there were 11 Mikondzo events held in KwaZulu-Natal. The areas identified for Mikondzo are informed by prevailing social ills, the level of poverty and challenges with access to social services amongst others. As a result, the provinces will not all host the same number of Mikondzo events.

2. Please note that there was an error in the attachment to Parliamentary Question 2019, for which I apologise. The actual amount spent on Mikondzo for the financial year, was approximately R100 million, and not R10 billion. The events in Limpopo and Mpumalanga indicated that an amount of R2,5 billion was spent on these events. This should have been R2,5 million, which was in line with the budgeted amount for each event. The funding was allocated from the retained surplus.

3. No virements were necessary, as the funding was allocated from the retained surplus.

4. As indicated under response to question 2, the details in the spreadsheet in the response to question 2019 was incorrect. The budgeted amount for each event was in fact R2,5 million.

Chance, Mr R to ask the Minister of Public Works

(1) With reference to the amended Construction Industry Development Regulations that was published for public comment in the Government Gazette No 38822 on 29 May 2015, what (a) is the current status of the proposed prompt payment regulations and (b) were the main points raised by the public through the consultation period; (2) by what date does he expect that the amended regulations will be enforced?

Reply:

1. (a) The draft Regulations on Prompt Payment and adjudication for the construction industry which were published for comment by the Minister of Public Works in Government Gazette 38822 of 29 May 2015 have been withdrawn. The Regulations were published in terms of Section 33 of the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Act, 2000 (Act no 38 of 2000). The much anticipated regulations were aimed at introducing automatic interest on late payment as well as statutory mechanisms to ensure progressive payment to contractors for work done.

In following due legal processes, the Minister submitted the draft Regulations to the Office of the Chief State Law Advisor to test its Constitutional validity and whether the draft Regulations were not ultra vires (meaning whether the Regulations did not go beyond the scope of the empowering provisions of the CIDB Act).

(b) The comments received highlighted the need for greater alignment of the adjudication provisions with the existing legislative framework for the administration of contracts, as well as the powers of the Minister in terms of the CIDB Act. Specifically, key comments received include (i) there are potential challenges that would arise if main contractors are expected to pay a sub-contractor within 30-days. Where verification of work is required, this may result in bad quality work being delivered, and as such, main contractors may be reluctant to sub-contract. This scenario may lead to price escalations

as a strategy to minimize the risk to main contractors. It would give a wrong impression to service providers that the payment is due to them irrespective of quality of work; (ii) payment of invoice within 30-days of submission will be impossible to implement by the public sector versus the current practice of within 30-days of issuing progress payment certificates after invoice have been verified; (iii) since the Regulations were proposing payment by main contractors to sub-contractors, it is argued that the conditions of contracts between the main and sub-contractors should take precedence.

2. The Minister received the legal opinion from the Office of the Chief State Law Advisor (the legal opinion) which emphasised that the Regulations were ultra vires and if challenged would not pass the Constitutional validity threshold. In essence, the legal opinion advised that the prompt payment and compulsory adjudication provisions of the draft regulations were substantive in nature and could not be categorised as any other matter for the better execution of the Act or in relation to any power granted or function or duty imposed by the Act (see section 33 (1) of the Act). The Chief State law advisor applied a restrictive approach for interpreting wide empowering provisions in respect of the making of the regulations and concluded that the draft regulations:

  • extended the scope or general operation of the enactment;
  • supported attempts to widen the purposes of the Act;
  • provided for substantive matters relating to the law of contract as opposed to administrative measures to implement the substantive matters provided in the Act; and
  • could not be categorised as authorising the provision of subsidiary means of carrying into effect what is enacted in the statute itself and covered what is incidental to the execution of its specific provisions.

Whether the vacated building is still being utilized for any SAPO purposes?

Reply:

I have been informed by SAPO as follows:

1. (a) SAPO vacated its own building in Bloemfontein in 2010 which was utilised for Postbank Operations due to it no longer being conducive for banking operations.

(b) The entity cited employee’s concerns about their safety when entering or leaving the building and lack of safe parking inside and around the building as further reasons for the move.

(c) An internal assessment of the building’s suitability was conducted by Postbank Management. This was necessitated by the results of the Employee Satisfaction Survey which was conducted in 2006.

(d) The building is not being utilized by SAPO for any purpose currently.

(a) On which date did Eskom approach her department to conduct environmental impact assessments for Duynefontein as the preferred site to establish another nuclear power station as part of the Government’s new nuclear build programme, (b) what are the details of the grounds on which her department approved the specified site as the preferred site for a new nuclear power station and (c) why did her department approve the specified site as the preferred site for a new nuclear power station when the Government’s new nuclear build programme determinations and intergovernmental agreements relating to the programme have been declared unconstitutional and invalid by a court of law?

Reply:

Eskom lodged an application for environmental authorisation on 1 May 2007, for the proposed construction and operation of a Nuclear Power Station in South Africa. The independent consultant appointed by Eskom as an Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) identified five sites as alternatives for the proposed development during the Scoping Phase of the Environmental Impact Assessment, namely Brazil and Schulpfontein (Northern Cape); Duynefontein (Western Cape); Bantamsklip (Western Cape) and Thyspunt (Eastern Cape). The Brazil and Schulpfontein sites were considered unsuitable for the proposed development and were eliminated from further assessment during the Scoping Phase. Bantamsklip was eliminated from further consideration in the Environmental Impact Assessment stage as there were shortcomings relating to transportation risks, urban planning and the level of detail provided in the assessment report on the transmission of power from the operational station was found to be inadequate when compared to the other two sites. The Thyspunt and Duynefontein sites were the only two sites that progressed to the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) phase and were presented as viable sites for the proposed development. The Duynefontein site was eventually approved by the Department from the two sites that were presented as viable options. There were numerous specialist assessments undertaken by experts in their respective fields which culminated in extremely voluminous specialist assessment reports. Some of these reports were subjected to a peer review during the EIA process. In addition however, these reports were also subjected to an independent review process by a panel of experts outside of the Department - before the department made a final decision.

The Duynefontein site was selected given that there were generally less overall environmental impacts associated with this site relative to impacts associated with the development of a “greenfields” site, i.e. Thyspunt. The refinement of the Duynefontein footprint to a terrestrial area of approximately 265ha, immediately north of the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station and inland from the coast has materially reduced the footprint-related environmental impacts of the project. In addition, the Duynefontein site is adjacent to the existing Koeberg Nuclear Power Station, thereby allowing for a suite of logistical and operational synergies.

The Western Cape High Court judgement found the request made by government for proposals to be submitted for the procurement of 9.6 gigawatts of nuclear to be unlawful and uncostitutional. The ruling had no bearing the application for the Environmental Authorisation as it had nothing to do with procurement processes.The application for environmental authorsation was lodged in terms of the National Environmental Management Act, Act 108 of 1998 and the associated environmental impact assessment regulations. Therefore the selection of Dynefontein as a prefereed site through the Environmental Impact Assessment process does not violate the High Court ruling, as it is an unrelated process.

What is the (a) total amount that was paid out in bonuses to employees in her Department and (b) detailed breakdown of the bonus that was paid out to each employee in each salary level in the 2016/17 financial year; and (2) what is the (a) total estimated amount that will be paid out in bonuses to employees in her Department and (b) detailed breakdown of the bonus that will be paid out to each employee in each salary level in the 2017/18 financial year?

Reply:

(1) (a) Due to the financial constraints and agreed to budget cuts the Department opted to pay incentives to performing staff, instead of generalised bonuses, as outlined in Part VIII, Section F1 of the Public Service Regulations which reads as follows:

“If the Departmental budget and the medium-term expenditure framework provide adequate funds, a head of department may establish a financial incentive scheme for the employees or any category of those employees.”

Consequently, an amount of R14, 493,635.57 was paid out in performance incentives to employees on salaries level 2-12 for the financial year.

(2) (a) An estimated total amount of R15 751 095 will be paid out in performance incentives to employees in the Department for the 2017/2018 financial year.

(b) The breakdown of the performance incentives to be paid out to each employee in each salary level for the 2017/18 financial year will be determined as outlined in Part VIII section F1 of the service Regulations, as outlined above.

Profile picture: Hadebe, Mr TZ

Hadebe, Mr TZ to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs

(1)With regard to the sale of rhino horns by a certain person (name furnished) during the online auction sale held from 21-24 August 2017, what is the total number of (a) permits that were issued by her department, (b) rhino horns or part thereof that were sold; (2) were any rhino horns or part thereof sold to the international community members; if not, what measures will be implemented to ensure that rhino horns or part thereof never leave the borders of the country; if so, (a) why, (b) what are the names of the buyers and/or bidders?

Reply:

(1)

(a) 1 permit to sell 264 rhinoceros horns and 7 permits to buy rhinoceros horns

(b) No horns or parts thereof

(2)

(a) As indicated above, no horns or parts thereof were sold during the auction. The following measures are in place to prevent and detect illegal activities:

  • Environmental Management Inspectors (EMIs) monitor compliance to the buying permits as well as the possession permits that will be applicable to the horns. Through the permitting system we are able to track the movement of the horns and conduct inspections on a regular basis to monitor that these are horns have remained in the country;
  • We have improved the ability to track the movement of rhino horn through the implementation of a national database and systems relating to the marking of rhino horn and genetic profiling;
  • The Department’s Environmental Management Inspectorate (EMI) works in collaboration with other government agencies such as the South African Police Service and SARS Customs at international airports and at border posts in order to combat the illegal import and export of wildlife products. Having enforcement officials at these ports has assisted in the detection of illegal goods and identification of possible offenders and continue to do so;
  • The Department’s Environmental Management Inspectorate (EMI) has been raising awareness and training border officials on initiatives focused on the Illicit International cross border movement of endangered species. This enhances our efforts to build capacity to tackle the problem;
  • In 2017 we also commenced with awareness raising sessions for the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) officials protecting the South African border line to ensure that they are aware of the illegal practices related to smuggling of wildlife and that they are able to react should they encounter smugglers;
  • The Department works in close co-operation with enforcement officials from neighboring countries to ensure that they are aware of possible illegal trade and that they immediately inform the department in case of any seizures of illegally traded horn and supply us with the necessary information to enable enforcement agencies to investigate;
  • Accordingly, we have improved our detection capability at ports of entry and exit by increasing awareness, human capacity, technology and skills which is evident in the increased number of confiscations, arrests and convictions related to wildlife trafficking.
  • Regulations pertaining to certain restricted activities involving rhinoceros horn were developed under section 97 of the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act, 2004 (Act No. 10 of 2004) to ensure the strict regulation of the domestic trade in rhino horn. Under section 57(2) of the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act, 2004 (Act No.10 of 2004) specific activities will be prohibit, i.e. the shaving and powdering of rhinoceros horn of Ceratotherium simum, Diceros bicornis bicornis, Diceros bicornis minor and Diceros bicornis michaeli.

2) All CWP participants sign contracts as part of their initial enrolment in the programme. The process of enrolment, including the signing of contracts by participants, is facilitated by Implementing Agents (IAs) appointed to implement the programme on behalf of the department at each of the CWP sites.

3) Potential participants have to meet three primary criteria before they can be enrolled in the programme: a) They have to be poor; b) They have to be unemployed or under-employed, i.e., employed on a part time basis and being available to work two days a week in the CWP; and c) They have to reside in a ward that has been prioritized by Council for CWP implementation (on the basis of poverty and unemployment levels).

The process of recruiting CWP participants involves a number of stakeholders: i) the IAs are responsible for recruiting participants who meet the criteria outlined above, ii) the Ward Councilors for the designated wards confirm (or otherwise) that the potential participant resides in their ward and indeed, meets the other two criteria and is not better off compared to other potential participants residing in the ward, ii) the Municipal representative on the multi-stakeholder Local Reference Committee (LRC) checks whether the potential participant is registered on the Municipality’s Indigent Register and iv) the LRC which decides on participant prioritization or selection criteria in instances where the number of qualifying potential participants exceeds the target participation rate for the particular site.

In deciding on prioritization or selection criteria, the LRC must adhere to the principles of transparency, fairness and non-discrimination, as outlined in the Recruitment Guidelines for Public Employment Programmes (PEPs) developed by the Department of Public Works’ Expanded Public Works Programme – the coordinating department for all PEPs, including the CWP.

4) (a) During the introductory visit to a new CWP municipality, a presentation

is made to the Municipal Council by the respective provincial CoGTA, IA and DCoG on the CWP - covering its objectives, the various role players, the municipality’s own role in the programme and the initial work opportunity target assigned to the Municipality by DCoG on the basis of the available budget. The Council of the CWP Municipality is then requested to determine the wards that are to be prioritized for roll out in the municipality. This is formalised through a council resolution which also states who the CWP champion in the municipality is going to be. In most instances, on the initial introductory visit, the Council only expresses an “in principle” endorsement of the CWP in their municipality and the desire for the CWP to be rolled out to all their wards. However, a full discussion on the matter is often deferred to a follow-up full sitting of Council where the CWP is further discussed, often without other external stakeholders. In that meeting, the CWP is formally endorsed and a municipal champion named through a council resolution. The outcome of the Council meeting is then communicated to DCoG in writing.

(b) Municipalities (Local and Metropolitan) to which the CWP is introduced are always advised to prioritize those wards where unemployment and poverty levels are highest and where socio-economic conditions are most depressed.

According to the information received from the Province of the Eastern Cape, the CWP in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality is being implemented in the 42 wards listed below:

4, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 35, 36, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58,59, 60.

No actions were required as the said company completed the work as required.

d) What actions was taken to recoup lost monies?

e) What efforts were made by her department to complete the unfinished project

This is a historical project which dates back to 2001. The owning entity is the Tyolomnqa Economic Development Trust. The project concept was developed in 2001 from discussions by the Tyolomnqa River Estuary Forum, with interests in the conservation and ecological management of the estuary.

The then Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEAT) agreed to provide funding of

R 750 000 from the Poverty Relief Grant for the development of a wilderness camp. The original business model was based on eight chalets (4-bed) and four campsites (8-persons per site). This funding was not sufficient to cover the full scope, only seven chalets, the campsite and a boma were completed in 2006. The project was never operational and over time the wilderness camp deteriorated.

The then Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism granted additional funding of R9.5 million in 2009 to resuscitate the project, refurbish the existing facilities and construct new ones, with the intention of operationalising the project. Performance Unlimited was contracted as the Project Implementer. Performance Unlimited commenced with the work in 2011 whilst awaiting zoning approval. In 2012 they submitted a request for additional funding of R6.3 million to cover the budget short fall.

In 2012 the new Department of Tourism reviewed the additional funding application, conducted a site visit to verify the need for additional funding and also met with the local municipality. The new Department of Tourism was not convinced of the long term sustainability of the project due to a number of reasons including governance and institutional arrangements for the project and the poor access road. The additional funding which was requested in 2012 was not granted and the Department did not continue with the project.
