 (b) A two-year contract was awarded in the 2016/17 financial year.

  (c) The contract indicated in (b) above is for a period of two years and therefore continues into the 2017/18 financial year.

2. (a) The amount of the contract is R495 000.

Over and above student contracts, the NIHSS also has contracts with service providers that are procured through the supply chain management process. The contracts with service providers need to be legally binding to ensure that the NIHSS is covered in the event of any dispute, and also to ensure that the quality of goods and services are monitored.

MSMM was appointed to vet all NIHSS contracts. This contributes to the mandate of the NIHSS as it supports work done on scholarships as well as NIHSS’s operations.

(a) Who is the current (i) chairperson of the board and (ii) Chief Executive Officer of the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority, (b) on what date was each person appointed and (c) what are the relevant details of the procedures of each selection committee for each appointment?

Reply:

a) (i) The Chairperson is Mr Pumzile Kedama.

(ii) The Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is Ms Keitumetse Pebane.

(b) The Chairperson of the Board was appointed on 07 April 2017 and the Acting CEO was appointed on 15 November 2017.

(c) The Minister is empowered by the Skills Development Act, 97 of 1998
(as amended) to appoint the Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer of the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA). The appointments were undertaken as follows:

Chairperson appointment – The appointment was made in line with the provisions of the Skills Development Act, 97 of 1998. In terms of Section 11(1) (a), the Minister must appoint the Chairperson of the Accounting Authority of a SETA after consultation with the National Skills Authority (NSA). Furthermore, Section 11(1)(b) provides that the Minister must by notice in the Government Gazette, invite nominations for the position of the Chairperson of the Accounting Authority from interested parties in the relevant sector. In appointing the Chairperson, a Government Gazette was issued inviting nominations. All nominations were processed which resulted in the identification of a suitable potential candidate for the position. The Minister consulted with the NSA who concurred.

Acting CEO appointment - In terms of the regulations for the Conditions of Service and Appointment of the Chief Executive Officer for the SETAs published in Government Gazette No 34720 of 4 November 2011, the Minister is responsible to appoint the CEO of a SETA based on three names recommended by the Accounting Authority in accordance with the SETA Standard Constitution. There is no specific provision in the Act or Regulations that guides the appointment of the acting CEO for a temporary period. After noticing a trend in which SETAs have been appointing acting CEOs without consulting the Minister, the Department issued a circular regulating the appointment of acting CEOs. In terms of this circular, the Accounting Authority of a SETA is required to submit the names of three individuals to the Minister for consideration as the Acting CEO. The Accounting Authority submitted a recommendation with three names for the Minister’s consideration before the acting appointment was made.

Reply:

The Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA) has provided the following responses to the questions posed.

1. Mr Lesego Luyanda Alexander was awarded a bursary to study International Hospitality Management at the Ecole Hotelliere Lausanne in Switzerland from 31 March 2013 to March 2017.

 (a) The former Chief Executive Officer (Mr Mike Tsotetsi) approved the bursary.

 (b) The bursary was awarded for a study field / programme on the scarce and critical skills list.

2. (a) The bursary was subsequently withdrawn when CATHSSETA was placed under administration on 15 October 2015.

(b) The bursary was withdrawn as funding was not in line with the CATHSSETA funding framework and it was found to have been irregularly awarded.

3. (a) Yes.

(b) CATHSSETA has filed for a counter-application to pray for a Declaratory Order to the effect that it has complied with its obligations in terms of the agreement entered into with the bursary recipient. The latter has to repay the amounts that were overpaid for the third and fourth year of his studies. The matter was set down for hearing on 29 January 2018.

4. There were irregularities in the awarding of the bursary, as there were no policies regulating the process of awarding international bursaries. Furthermore, the amount awarded was not in line with the CATHSSETA bursary funding framework of R67 000.00 per learner. The relevant staff members were accordingly charged with misconduct.

5. Costs still needs to be confirmed and will be made available when finalised.

Reply:

1. (a) (i) The service provider was appointed to manage events including conferences, workshops, seminars, official meetings, etc. on behalf of the Department of Higher Education and Training.

(ii) Batsumi Travel (Pty) Ltd.

(b) Ms Lisa Sebogodi (Owner and Director)

(c) (i) One of the major events, which the Department participates annually, is the Mandela-Day Career Festival. Initially the Department was going to share the management responsibilities with other partakers and would thus not be mainly responsible for the procurement. This however changed with the nearing of the event. In order for the Department to be mainly responsible for the procurement, a bid process had to be followed to secure service providers to arrange and manage the event. Therefore, the urgent appointment of an events management company was of essence, which led to the shortened period for advertising.

(ii) The Department compiled a list of planned events, though it was not conclusive and all-inclusive.

2. Annexure A provides a list of all events to date that were arranged by the events management company with the number of participants and cost for hosting each event.

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

Whether the Central Johannesburg Technical and Vocational Education and Training College has sufficient equipment to teach practical skills in all fields; if not, what (a) are the details of all the equipment that is in shortage and (b) plans have been put in place to address all equipment shortages; (2) Whether her department is aware of any cases where the specified college awarded students marks for the practical component of a course where no actual practical teaching took place; if not, (3) Does she have any intention of investigating whether such practices take place at the specified college; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) Whether any equipment was lost due to theft at the specified college (a) in the (i) 2015, (ii) 2016 and (iii) 2017 academic years and (b) since 1 January 2018; if so, what (aa) are the relevant details, (bb) steps have been taken to apprehend the thieves and (cc) action has been taken to replace the stolen equipment?

Reply:

1. The Central Johannesburg TVET College offers a range of business, engineering and services-related programmes. The Principal of the College has indicated that not all workshops and laboratories used for the teaching of practical skills across the various fields are fully equipped with machines, tools and relevant equipment.

a) The kitchens for the Hospitality programmes need to be refurbished as this programme was relocated to the old Wits Hotel School from the Smit Street campus as the previous building was expropriated and demolished for the Gautrain project.

The ICT infrastructure needs recapitalisation and modernisation.

The key concern for the Engineering programmes is the procurement of Learning and Teaching Support Materials (LTSM).

The Fitting and Motor Mechanic workshops require replacement of tools and machinery due to it being missing or obsolete.

b) The College included the refurbishment of the kitchens in its 2018 Strategic Plan, pending the availability of funds.

The College is in the final stages of a tender process for the recapitalisation of its ICT infrastructure. This project, once completed early in 2018, will have addressed all ICT related issues across all campuses and programmes.

The College Council recently approved that campuses may procure LTSM to a maximum of R30 000 to expedite the provision of LTSM.

Since 2016, the College has procured some tools and equipment for the Motor Mechanic workshops. Earlier this year, the Ford Motor Company donated three new vehicles to the College for teaching and learning purposes. The College is also in discussions with ABB South Africa for similar donations to its Alexandra campus.

2. The College and Department are not aware of cases where students were awarded marks for the practical component of a course where no actual practical teaching took place.

3. If more detail is provided on the incident, the Principal and Department will investigate and take appropriate action.

4. According to the Principal, who assumed office on 01 April 2016, some staff members verbally alleged that some equipment was lost/misplaced/unaccounted. To date, no evidence has been provided by these staff members.

(a) (i) Detailed information regarding allegations of lost/stolen assets are not readily available for 2015 and 2016. The Department will investigate and revert back in due course.

(ii) The Principal’s report indicates that in 2016, a staff member made allegations against a Campus Manager at the Ellis Park Campus involving two missing sofas and a lawn mower. This was investigated and evidence was provided that the sofas were being re-upholstered. The service provider would not release the sofas as there was a misunderstanding regarding the quotation. Payment was effected and the sofas were returned to the College.

The service provider who repaired the lawnmower wanted payment before releasing the machine. Payment was effected and the lawnmower was returned to the College.

The above report was provided to the complainant but he was not satisfied with the explanation. The Principal has requested the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) specialists deployed at colleges to investigate this matter. The College is still awaiting this report.

With reference to the reply to question 2463 on 5 September 2017, what steps has (a) the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) and (b) her department taken to encourage students to pay off their debt owed to NSFAS?

Reply:

a) The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has put in place the following collection processes during the 2015/16 financial year to increase recoveries:

  1. Appointment of External Debt Collectors (EDC) to contact debtors who are working in the public and private sector. NSFAS is also working with private companies and associations, e.g. Association for Savings and Investment South Africa (ASISA) and South African Insurance Association (SAIA) to allow for payroll deductions from their employees as well as certain government departments;
  2. NSFAS plans to do soft collections via the contact centre by calling and emailing debtors on a small to medium scale before the debtors are handed over to EDC for collections from the 2018/19 financial year onwards;
  3. NSFAS sends out quarterly statements to enable debtors to make payment arrangements via debit order directly to the Scheme;
  4. NSFAS has embarked on an extensive recoveries communication campaign to create awareness and encourage previous beneficiaries to pay, utilising different mediums of communication throughout the country, i.e. television, radio, print media as well as social media platforms;
  5. NSFAS receives assistance from the National Treasury to secure payroll deductions from government departments. It received secondments from Standard Bank and First National Bank. The First National Bank secondment assists NSFAS with implementation of the recoveries strategy. The Standard Bank secondment assists with all reporting requirements for recoveries, building a data warehouse, dashboard and reporting on the performance statistics of EDC; and
  6. The entity is also getting assistance from SARS on a quarterly basis.

b) The recoveries mandate remains the responsibility of NSFAS. The Department provides oversight and monitoring to ensure that NSFAS fulfils its obligations in this regard.

With reference to her reply to question 2463 on 5 September 2017 regarding the amount of debt owed to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) by drop-outs, (a) what is the total number of students who dropped out whose debt adds up to R4,002 billion, (b) of this number, how many dropped out due to (i) academic exclusion, (ii) financial exclusion and (iii) other reasons, (c) what proportion of the debt owed by drop-outs has been repayable for (i) less than three years and (ii) more than three years, (d) what amount of the drop-out debt has (i) prescribed and (ii) been written off and (e) whether each amount has been included in the total amount of debt owed to NSFAS by drop-outs?

Reply:

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

a) The total number of students who dropped out is 122 769.

b) NSFAS does not currently require universities to provide the reasons for students dropping out. NSFAS defines a dropout as a student who has not formally graduated from the university at which he/she was funded and is currently not studying. Debtors are classified as either “studying”, “graduate” or “dropout” in the loan management system with no breakdown in terms of the reasons for a debtor having dropped out.

Using the Higher Education Management Information System (HEMIS) and information submitted by the universities annually, NSFAS is able to determine whether a funded student has graduated from an undergraduate programme of study. NSFAS does not currently have a mechanism to identify if a student has transferred to another university for continued studies, however it will be developing this capability in the future.

c) NSFAS debt becomes due and payable one year after a debtor has exited the higher education system, is employed and earns more than R30 000 per annum. Debtors are required to inform NSFAS as soon as their status has changed, i.e. they have exited the higher education system, become employed and earning above the repayment threshold. In terms of section 24 of the NSFAS Act No. 56 of 1999, as amended, NSFAS conducts a loan book matching exercise with the South African Revenue Service on a quarterly basis to establish the employment status and contact information of debtors where such information is available.

The table below shows the number of debtors who have dropped out of the higher education system, and the number of years that their debt has been repayable.

d) None of the dropout debt was considered to have been prescribed as at 31 March 2017.

NSFAS only writes off debt in respect of individual debtors who are deceased or permanently disabled on receipt of death certificate and/or confirmation through the Department of Home Affairs in respect of deceased debtors and medical confirmation in respect of permanently disabled debtors. Data on write-offs in respect of debtors who have dropped out and are deceased or permanently disabled will require further analysis of the loan book.

e) Debt written off due to death or permanent disability are not included in the total amount of debt owed to NSFAS by dropouts.

2. (a) The Department is committed to improving the disbursement of bursary funds to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in 2018. TVET colleges have three academic cycles per academic year. NSFAS plans to disburse all funds to TVET colleges by 30 November 2018. It should be noted that the amount reflected under commitment is an indicative amount not to be exceeded. Some of the commitments will not be fully claimed as payments by NSFAS depends on actual students qualifying and being admitted to colleges. After all the claims have been finalised, the remainder of the amount will then be utilized for the colleges who had more than expected NSFAS qualifying students. The indicative allocation and any remaining funds will be rolled over to the new allocation for the next financial year.

(b) The core challenge experienced by the TVET college sector, which leads to the low disbursement of funds, is that very few students are committed to signing the Schedule of Particulars (SoPs). The Department has agreed that NSFAS should consider an alternative option where registration data is used, signed off by the Accounting Officer (College Principal), to substitute the SoP requirement. This will lead to improved disbursement of funds to several institutions. NSFAS has over the last few weeks deployed officials to TVET colleges to expedite the disbursement process and as such, payments have been made weekly to institutions to ensure that they receive funds owed to them. Colleges have been trying to manage the funding of poor students in the interim through their own reserves or seeking advances on their subsidies from the Department. In some cases students had to find funding for themselves which is an untenable situation.

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

(1)What are the full details of the event or events that were managed by the events management company that was appointed in the 2016-17 financial year and for which the expenditure of R3.37 million was deemed irregular by the Auditor-General? (2) What are the names of the (a) owners and (b) directors of the specified company? (3) (a) What was the total cost of the event or events managed by the company and (b) what number of persons attended the event? (4) On what date (a) was the need for the tender identified, (b) was the tender advertised, (c) did the bids close, (d) did the bid evaluation and bid adjudication committees meet and (e) was the contract entered into? (5) What was the initial budget, contract amount and final amount paid to the company for its work?

Reply:

1. The expenditure that was deemed irregular was not in respect of a single event. The Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA) deemed the appointment of an events management service provider as irregular. The Department advertised the bid for the events management service provider for a shortened period of 14 days instead of the normal 21 days in terms of Treasury Regulation 16 A 6.3 that states, “the accounting officer or accounting authority must ensure that bids are advertised in at least the Government Tender Bulletin for a minimum period of 21 days before closure, except in urgent cases when bids may be advertised for such shorter period as the accounting officer/authority may determine.” According to the AGSA, the reasons provided for the shortened advertising period was not justified. Batsumi Travel (Pty) Ltd was appointed in June 2016 and was thereafter responsible for arranging events for the Department. The expenditure since their appointment amounted to R3.37 million. The irregular expenditure is under review and will be considered for condonement.

2. (a) Lisa Malebo Sebogodi

(b) Lisa Malebo Sebogodi

3. (a) The deemed irregular expenditure for events of the Department amounted to R3 369 841.94 from the appointment of Batsumi Travel (Pty) Ltd on 27 June 2016 until 31 March 2017.

(b) The events organised were attended by 4 487 persons.

4. (a) The need for the tender was identified on 18 November 2015.

(b) The tender was advertised on 20 May 2016.

(c) The tender closed on 3 June 2016.

(d) The Bid Evaluation Committee met on 7 June 2016 and Bid Adjudication Committee on 14 June 2016.

(e) The contract was signed on 27 June 2016.

5. The budget for the contract was estimated at R24 million for the 3-year period of the contract. The contract amount is R24 million, which includes a management fee of 8%. The final amount paid to the service provider can only be determined at the end of the contract.

  • The college has to confirm the status of three (3) employees who are not on the original list and to apply permanency criteria. Once this is done and if the three employees are eligible, they would be made permanent;
  • If any of the seven (7) foreigner employees have since received permanent residence status in South Africa and have valid South African identification they would be made permanent. Evidence to this effect will be required from the college before permanency can be confirmed;
  • The Department is in the process of developing a Collective Agreement that seeks to address the issue of staff who had not undergone recruitment and selection processes nationally and the status of the affected employees can only be finalised on the basis of the Collective Agreement;
  • The substitute employee’s contract will end once the permanent employee returns to work and this contract will not become permanent; and
  • The three (3) employees identified as being above the annual salary threshold cannot be made permanent as the approved criteria do not include them.

3. No documents have been mislaid.

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

(1)Whether she has found that the decrease in the number of students assisted by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) at public technical vocational education and training (TVET) colleges from 235 988 in 2016 to 225 950 in 2017 represents a trend that should be reversed; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what actions will she undertake to ensure that the number of students at public TVET colleges studying with NSFAS support is increased; and (2) What growth in the number of TVET college students studying with NSFAS support over the medium term does she deem to be in line with the growth in the number of students in need of financial support

Reply:

1. The Ministry is aware of the trend and is in full agreement that this trajectory must be reversed. The Department’s Medium Term Strategic Framework targets 200 000 students per annum and therefore the Department is within the target range. There are year-to-year variations in the numbers depending on the number of students applying and qualifying. The reduced numbers are attributed to the growing demand for increased allowances from those already funded due to the cost of accommodation and travel. Added to this, the majority of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges were not participating in the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) centralised student-centred model in 2016. In 2016, sixteen (16) Colleges participated in the NSFAS student-centred model and 34 Colleges used an old and outdated NSFAS administrative system to process student applications. The old NSFAS administrative system did not entail verification of students’ supporting documents submitted by various government departments and thus a high number of students were awarded bursaries.

In 2017 the NSFAS centralised student-centred system was rolled out to all TVET Colleges requiring all applications of TVET College students to be processed through the new student-centred model which involves rigorous verification of applications of students. This stringent verification of students’ applications may have attributed to the decreased number of NSFAS beneficiaries in 2017 since many students, especially those who do not qualify for travel and accommodation allowances, are reluctant to complete and sign the bursary documentation. However, it must be noted that NSFAS has not concluded processing applications for 2017 and as such the number of NSFAS beneficiaries is likely to increase.

2. For the last seven (7) years, bursary funding for TVET Colleges has only been increasing in line with the Consumer Price Index. Taking into account the accompanying annual increase in tuition fees, a substantial increase in the number of NSFAS beneficiaries is not feasible from the allocated funds. Therefore, the number of public TVET College students benefitting from NSFAS is likely to remain stable unless there is a substantial increase of bursary funding from the voted funds. Motivations in this regard have been made to the National Treasury to increase the NSFAS allocations to TVET colleges in terms of providing relief to all who qualify for NSFAS support but there is insufficient funding and the current accommodation and travel allowance is insufficient to cover the costs.

Reply:

One additional house is currently under construction for an amount of R700 000.00. The University has not indicated which executive staff member will occupy this house.

2. The average mid-level income rental in Mtunzini ranges between R10 000.00 to R20 000.00 per month. If the University had rented the 9 properties instead of purchasing the properties as an investment, the University would have spent approximately R10 500 000.00 on rentals for executives over a 5-year period, which is made up as follows:

With reference to her reply to question 2463 on 5 September 2017 regarding the amount of debt owed to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) by graduates, (a) what is the total number of graduates whose debt adds up to R6.148 billion, (b) what proportion of the debt owed by graduates has been repayable for (i) less than three years and (ii) more than three years, (c) what amount of debt owed by the graduates has been (i) prescribed and (ii) written off and (d) whether each amount has been included in the total amount owed to NSFAS by graduates?

Reply:

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has reported the following information:

(a) The total number of graduates is 166 724.

(b) Due to the way the NSFAS debt is structured, NSFAS does not have a complete and accurate record of when NSFAS debt becomes due and payable. NSFAS debt becomes due and payable when a debtor is employed and earning above R30 000 per month. Debtors are required and expected to contact NSFAS when this condition has been met. NSFAS therefore establishes when a debt becomes due and payable by using available South African Revenue Service records but this information is an approximation. The information below should therefore be interpreted in this light.

Less than 3 years

More than 3 years

Not due and payable

Grand Total

50 255

104 244

12 225

166 724

30%

63%

7%

 

(c) NSFAS only writes off debtors when they are deceased or disabled. For the reasons stated above, NSFAS is not able to determine when debt is prescribed. Prescription of debt is therefore determined on a case-by-case basis.

(d) NSFAS recognises all amounts advanced to students, including graduates, as debtors. A provision is raised in terms of Generally Recognised Accounting Practice standards for the amount that may not be recovered.

With reference to his reply to question 2463 on 5 September 2017, what is the total amount that students owe to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme according to each institution of higher education?

Reply:

1. In Question 2463 on 5 September 2017, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provided the following information in respect to current debt:

CATEGORY

AMOUNT OUTSTANDING

Graduates

R6,148 billion

Drop-outs

R4,002 billion

Total

R10,150 billion

In response to the follow-up Question 2870 on 15 September 2017, NSFAS further detailed the breakdown of the R 6, 48 billion, as follows:

  • The total number of graduates whose debt amounts to R6,148 billion is 166 724;
  • 30% of the debt has been repayable for less than 3 years, 63% has been repayable for more than 3 years, and 7% is not yet due and payable;
  • It was noted that NSFAS only writes off debtors when they are deceased or disenabled, and that due to the nature of the loan book, NSFAS is not able to determine when debt is prescribed. This is undertaken on a case-by-case basis.

Both these Questions referred to a subset of the active loans on NSFAS’ loan management system. Active loans are differentiated by those that are current debt
(due and repayable) and those which are not current (students are still studying or have not yet started earning an income higher than the threshold for repayment).

For the full set of active and current debt as at 10 October 2017, the current balance due to NSFAS amounting to R10, 039 billion per institution is below:

(1)With reference to the student who mistakenly received an allowance of R14 million from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), (a) which entity subcontracted a certain company (name furnished) to disburse NSFAS student grants for Walter Sisulu University and (b) whether the company was vetted to ensure the quality of their service; (2) Does the specified company disburse NSFAS grants for other higher education institutions; if so, which institutions; (3) What restrictions are placed on student grants in terms of which outlets and on what items the grants can be spent; (4) Has (a) his department or (b) NSFAS requested that a forensic investigation be undertaken to explain how the specified student was able to spend over R800 000 on non-student items which included the purchase of multiple iPhones; (5) What are the relevant details of the steps his department will take to ensure that such an error is not repeated?

Reply:

(1) (a) Since 2012, Walter Sisulu University has contracted directly with Intellimali (Pty) Ltd to manage the processing of allowances to students and the subsequent purchase of goods from approved service providers.

(b) The service providers are procured in line with university supply chain management processes. NSFAS does not have any contractual arrangement with Intellimali (Pty) Ltd.

(2) In addition to Walter Sisulu University, Intellimali is used by the following Universities, to disburse allowances to NSFAS funded students:

  • Central University of Technology;
  • Mangosuthu University of Technology;
  • University of the Western Cape;
  • University of Fort Hare; and
  • University of Stellenbosch.

(3) The process used by Walter Sisulu University is as follows:

  • Details of students with confirmed NSFAS funding are forwarded to Intellimali (Pty) Ltd that uses the Intellicard system.
  • A food allowances is then raised on the card. For NSFAS students, it is a monthly amount of R1 400 and for other bursary funded students it varies based on the bursary stipulations.
  • Students present their Intellicard to pre-approved vendors for the purchase of food. These pre-approved vendors, such as Spar, Checkers and Pick n Pay, would need to be registered on the Intellimali system.
  • No cash is given to NSFAS funded students by Walter Sisulu University or Intellimali.

(4) Following the media reports regarding the payment of R14 million, NSFAS resolved to approach the incident as follows:

  • Letter written to the University requesting an explanation;
  • Engaged with the University service provider, Intellimali, to obtain a detailed understanding of the incident; and
  • Arranged a meeting with both the University and Intellimali to gain further context to the incident and agree on a suitable approach to resolve the matter. This includes a forensic investigation being instituted by Intellimali

NSFAS undertakes to implement recommendations flowing from the report that must address internal control deficiencies and shortcomings in NSFAS’s operating model and service level agreements with universities.

(5) NSFAS has committed to take the following actions to mitigate the risk of such errors from re-occurring:

  • Perform continuous reviews on its payment system and processes.
  • Increase the frequency of reporting by institutions beyond the final reporting reconciliation process that is currently in place.
  • Implement recommendations flowing from the report that must address internal control deficiencies and shortcomings in NSFAS’s operating model and service level agreements with universities.
  • Fast track the implementation of the Student Centred Model with special focus on allowance disbursement solutions.
  • Work closely with institutions to address any existing system and process challenges.
  • Establish a payment task team to ensure processes are enhanced and smooth transition from third party solution providers to the NSFAS allowance disbursement system, sBux.

Reply:

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has provided the following responses:

a) Twenty-two universities currently have their NSFAS allowances disbursed by a private company. Five of these universities, namely the Durban University of Technology, Nelson Mandela University, Sol Plaatje University, University of South Africa and University of Venda make use of the NSFAS allowance disbursement system, sBux.

b) (i) The institutions do not pay any fees for the disbursement to the service providers. The service providers charge merchants a service fee, based on their respective contractual arrangements. For institutions using sBux, NSFAS does not pay the service provider any fees. The service provider, Celbux, charges registered merchants a service fee which is based on the value of the transactions.

(ii) NSFAS is not aware any cases of purposeful fraud with regard to universities contracting with their respective service providers. NSFAS has a fraud hotline in place for anonymous reporting of suspicious or potentially fraudulent incidents. Appropriate action is taken against students or merchants where any transgression have been identified. Additionally, students report matters to the South African Police Service who investigate the matters.

With reference to her reply to question 1592 on 22 June 2017, what is her department’s (a) understanding and (b) position on the decolonisation of South African institutions of higher education?

Reply:

1. Decolonisation means different things to different people, and is an issue that is being intensely engaged with across the university system, as students and staff grapple to make meaning and build a shared understanding of it.

From the perspective of the Department of Higher Education and Training, decolonisation is fundamentally related to rapid, and perhaps radical, transformation of the higher education sector. It is related to:

  • Building a university system that has a South African, African, Global South and Global identity.
  • Engaging critically with what is taught, learnt and researched in the university system to ensure that it reflects these multiple identities and diverse worldviews.
  • Building an institutional culture at universities that is reflective of and receptive to multiple identities.
  • Addressing inequalities in relation to who leads, manages, teaches and researches in the university system.
  • Building a university system that is locally responsive and globally relevant.

The Department’s key intervention to promote the transformation agenda at an institutional level is the University Capacity Development Programme, which was described in Question 1592 on 22 June 2017. This is a multi-faceted, multi-year, resourced programme, which has the overarching goal of “Transforming teaching, learning, researching and leading towards enhanced quality, success and equity in universities”.

Profile picture: Bergman, Mr D

(a) What is the overall shortage of beds for student accommodation at each (i) public university and (ii) Technical and Vocational Education and Training college, (b) how are these shortage figures determined and (c) what long-term plans has his department made to address the shortage?

Reply:

(a) (i) The Ministerial Report on the Review of Student Housing at South African Universities undertaken in 2010 showed that the public university sector had sufficient spaces in university owned on-campus 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 an ideal number of students who required accommodation.

Between 2012/13 and 2014/15, the Department allocated R1.748 billion in infrastructure and efficiency funds towards the development of student housing and approximately 7 400 new beds have been constructed (completed) bringing the current on-campus stock up to approximately 115 000 beds. Some funded projects are still due for completion. This figure does not include any university projects funded by other means, or private accommodation that may have been developed. However, it is known that substantial private housing has been developed, especially in urban areas. The updated stock of available accredited affordable student housing needs to be determined as part of the Student Housing Infrastructure Programme.

(ii) The Department conducted a survey on student accommodation at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in 2010 and is currently updating this information as part of a college infrastructure self-assessment.

The survey was to have been completed by 31 August 2017. At this date, 47 Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges had completed and submitted their information. Follow-ups are being made with the 3 remaining TVET colleges to complete and submit their information. Preliminary data indicates that there are approximately 15 489 bed spaces at TVET colleges.

(b) The Ministerial Review Report recommended that ideally universities should be providing beds for 50% of contact students on campuses in urban areas where there are available and affordable off-campus accommodation, and 80% on rural campuses where there is little / inappropriate off-campus accommodation.

These figures were used to calculate the estimated shortage of on-campus accommodation. However, it is recognised that the solution involves institution owned accommodation on-campuses as well as privately owned accommodation and ideally, over time, all student accommodation should meet the norms and standards required for conducive living and learning spaces.

(c) The Department is committed to addressing the student housing shortage through its comprehensive long-term plan, the Student Housing Infrastructure Programme (SHIP), planned over a 10 year period from 2016-2026.

The objectives of the programme are to provide safe, affordable housing for students so that they can study, graduate and provide the skills necessary for employment and economic development. Through this programme, the Department aims to address the backlog of student housing at universities and TVET colleges and to create sustainable living and learning environments. The goal of the 10 year programme is to provide 200 000 new beds at universities, and 100 000 new beds at TVET colleges, depending on the availability of funding not only for infrastructure projects, but also for operations and student financial aid. A challenge still remains that there are no earmarked allocations of voted funds for TVET College infrastructure ever since the Department was established in 2009.

(a) What are the figures in respect of the shortage of beds at the University of Venda student accommodation facilities, (b) what amount has been allocated to the university for the construction of student accommodation over the past 10 years, (c) what is the status of the two residence construction projects at a cost of R135 million which are not yet housing students and (d) what steps is his department taking to address the accommodation crisis at the university?

Reply:

a) The challenge of student housing at the University of Venda (Univen) is linked to the increasing student numbers at the institution. Given its rural setting, in an ideal situation accessible and affordable student accommodation facilities, whether owned by the university or privately owned, would be available for 80% of the student population. 80% of the 2016 student headcount enrolment is 10 798 students. The 2016 university bed capacity is 2165 beds. This means that student housing for approximately 8 633 students is required in addition to the current university stock.

b) Over the past 10 years R168.494 million has been allocated by the Department to Univen for the construction of student accommodation. R35.5 million was allocated over the 2010/11 to 2011/12 funding cycle and R132.994 million over the 2012/13 to 2014/15 cycle.

c) Two residence construction projects, one intended to house 320 female students and the other 314 male students, at a cost of R135 million, are unfinished. The projects have been abandoned by the contractors. The reason reported for the abandonment by the contractor, who had won the tender for both student housing projects, is that the contractor had cash flow challenges and then realised that they had under-quoted for the work and would not be able to complete the projects within the amount approved by the university. The university has launched an investigation into the circumstances that led to the abandonment. The university has calculated the funds required to complete the projects and is currently raising additional funds to do this. It should be noted that there is a further student housing project currently underway at Univen funded by the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) that is progressing well. This will provide an additional 1800 beds for the 2018 academic year.

d) The need for student housing is a system wide challenge. The Department has supported Univen through its Infrastructure and Efficiency Grant as indicated in (b) above and will support them further in the next funding cycle (2018/19 to 2020/22), once it has solved the problem of the current projects and is in a position to manage a new set of projects. In addition the Department supported Univen to gain Ministerial approval to take on a loan of R300 million through DBSA for the additional R1800 beds mentioned in (c) above. The Department is currently undertaking feasibility studies at five universities and one Technical Vocational Education and Training college, supported by the Integrated Infrastructure Programme of South Africa (IIPSA), to identify effective funding models to accelerate student housing for the university sector.

Whether the Council on Higher Education (CHE) has put measures in place to ensure that all universities are using reputable external examiners for all courses; if not, (a) why not and (b) what steps will the CHE take in order to rectify this significant gap in quality control; if so, what are the relevant details of the measures in respect of each course at each university; (2) Whether the CHE approves of the practice of using bell curves in some instances to determine the distribution of marks in university courses, as an alternative to using external examiners; if not, why not; if so, why?

Reply:

The Council on Higher Education (CHE) has provided the following response:

1. (a) The CHE is not involved in the appointment of examiners at an institutional level. The Council expects all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), whether public or private, to have clear institutional assessment policies in place. These must be in line with their teaching and learning policies, which may be differentiated according to the programme and module outcomes. The use of external moderators for exit level outcomes at the programme level is standard of good practice. HEIs will differ on the number of external examiners and moderators used, and whether international academics are utilised or not.

(b) The CHE does not prescribe to institutions outside of the criteria it applies to review programmes for accreditation. During the CHE Quality Assurance processes, a check is made as to whether the institutions assessment processes are rigorous and appropriate. The CHE considers the evaluation in a holistic way rather than as a tick-box exercise. While the CHE expects all public and private institutions to have robust and rigorous assessment practices in place, it cannot confirm that this is always the practice. In the first cycle of institutional audits that ran from 2004 to 2011, institutions were required to show that they had policies and processes in place to address the 19 criteria specified in the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) Institutional Audits Manual 2007. This includes criterion 12, which states:

“The institution has effective procedures that facilitate the quality of the internal and external moderation of its assessment procedure and results, in order to ensure their reliability, as well as the integrity of the qualifications it awards.”

All universities that were in existence prior to 2015 were subjected to institutional audits. Where any of the criteria were not met, universities were required to devise and implement improvement plans, which were monitored by the HEQC. The three new universities have not yet undergone institutional audits as they are still developing their policies and processes.

2. The methods used by HEIs to determine the distribution of marks in a course lies outside the remit of an external quality assurance agency. The CHE cannot comment on the extent that HEIs in the country may be using bell curves to determine the distribution of marks in courses as an alternative to using external examiners. However, the CHE expects that all exit level assessment will have external examiners in place, as this is standard of good practice.
