STAFF MATTERS

  • BSA adopted a total of 20 policies which include the BSA Disciplinary Code and Grievance Procedure.

  • Job evaluation system which is aligned to the Equate System used in the public service has been implemented.

  • Job descriptions and key performance areas (KPA’s) have been developed and implemented

  • A three year human resources plan has been developed

  • For the period under review, BSA continued operating with the CFO position being vacant.

  • However, it must be noted that the organogram provided in this presentation is no longer a true reflection of BSA staffing (Continues).


STAFF MATTERS (Continuation)

Current staffing has changed as follows:

  • There has been a number of resignations; (a) Mr. Bongani Khumalo resigned as the CEO on 6 May 2009, (b) Mr. Thabo Nala resigned as Financial Officer on 30 April 2009, and (c) Mrs. Gugu Radebe also resigned as Admin Manager on 25 September 2009.

  • After B. Khumalo’s resignation the BSA Board appointed Mr. L Mtya as the Acting CEO.

  • He therefore filled the position left vacant by the resignation of Mr. T. Nala, by way of recruiting Talifhani Khubana as well as appointing him in the interim to take up admin duties left vacant by the later resignation of Mrs. Gugu Radebe.

  • (Continues)


Current staffing (Continuation)

  • The combination of these two positions under one office was aimed at cutting the costs of employing new staff during this difficult financial period, as well as taking advantage of the financial & admin skills he brought along with him.


STAFF: TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

  • For 2008/09 financial year there has been no training and development programme due to financial constrains.

  • However, in the current year (2009/10 Financial Year) BSA successfully revived relationship with the National Lottery Fund.

  • As from 2010 January staff members will be trained in order to improve their skills and enable them to successfully execute their duties.


Staffing Action Plan

  • Recruitment: BSA will not be embarking on recruiting new staff members. However, there is an agreement between BSA and SRSA that SRSA would second the CFO, but it has recently come to the light SRSA will second an independent Financial Management & Administration team to assist BSA as a turn around strategy.

  • We view this as a step by government towards laying down the foundation of injecting more funds into BSA.

  • BSA warmly welcomes this initiative.


RESIGNATIONS

Resignations

  • There has been a 40% of staff member resignations due to better offers from other companies with benefits that we do not have at BSA.

  • Such benefits include amongst others; medical aid, pension fund, bonus etc.

    Retention Action Plan

  • The MANCO meeting held on 7 July 2009 resolved that BSA salaries and perks will be in parity with other public entities' salary scales.


OPERATIONAL RESULTS 2008/09


OPERATIONAL RESULTS 2008/09

  • Successful annual Boxing Awards were held in Carnival City on February 2009

  • BSA managed to stage 107 tournaments in total, of which 30 were international (Statistics provided below).

  • Baby champs project’s fourth year was a success story.

  • Theta Skills development project is still on going.

  • There has been increased participation in international events by boxers and ring officials

  • Sixteen girls representing all racial groups in the country were adjudicated good enough to turn professional, and two of them (UnathiMyekeni & NoniTenge) won International Titles i.e. WBF Junior feather weight and Welterweight title respectively.


Statistics Of Boxing Tournaments From 1 April 2008 To 31 March 2009


Statistics Of Boxing Tournaments

Challenges

  • BSA did not have tournaments in Limpopo and Northern Cape Province.

  • A few were held in Western Cape and KZN province.

  • This was due the fact that there has been little or no funding from the provincial government to develop boxing.

    Tournaments Action Plan

  • As from January 2010 BSA will visit all the provinces especially the ones where there has been little or no boxing activity.

  • This is aimed at proposing for provincial government involvement that will result in activity in provinces.

  • The envisaged end result is the government involvement in the promotion of provincial titles and more opportunities for local boxers and officials.

  • Sponsors have been approached and positive responses have been received for the year 2010.


FEMALE BOXING

Challenges

  • We did not achieve the target set out for female tournaments. The main reason is that promoters have not really accepted or warmed up to the idea of female boxing.

  • That has resulted in BSA having to seek financial assistance from provincial governments and private donors to make female boxing a reality.

    Action Plan

  • Promoters will be requested to include one or two female bout(s) in their tournaments as a prerequisite for sanctioning.

  • The circular will be sent to the promoters on 16th November 2009.

  • The prerequisite will be effective as from January 2010.


OPERATIONS :TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

The SLA between BSA and Theta has resulted in the ongoing process BSA licensees are trained and accredited according to their respective disciplines.

We are now preparing for the first graduation before spreading the program nationwide.

As from January 2010 the National Lottery Fund will be utilised to conduct house training so as to develop licensees as follows:

  • Boxers – Technical knowledge, boxing skills and rules.

  • Trainers – Technical Knowledge, training programs and corner management

  • Managers – Boxer business management and guidance.

  • Promoters – Promotion management and tournament Compliances

  • Ring Officials – Ring management and Fight Rules and Regulations


FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION


FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION

  • The 2008/09 Annual Financial Statement was submitted on time to both Auditor General and National Treasury.

  • The Qualified Audit Report issued by the Auditor General of South Africa was based on operating expenditure amounting to R346 239.00 without supporting documentations, as well as the following emphasis of matters:

  • Going Concern

  • Fruitless and wasteful expenditure


BASIS OF AUDIT OPINION

  • Pro-forma invoices existed, while the payment requisitions that should accompany the invoices, were not there. (Qualified Opinion)

  • The entity’s liabilities exceed its total assets by 5 951 045.(Going Concern)

  • Fruitless & Wasteful expenditure is attributed to unfair dismissals and VAT & PAYE not paid on time.(Fruitless & Wasteful Expenditure)


AUDIT QUERIES

Non-compliance with applicable legislation

Public Finance Management Act

  • “Quarterly reports to the executive authority were not submitted within 30 days of the end of each quarter as required by Treasury Regulation 26.1.1.”

  • CORRECTIVE ACTION

  • In the current financial year (2009/10) the last two quarterly reports were submitted in time.

  • Our accounting books are up to date.

  • The next quarterly reports will also be submitted timely.


Non-compliance with applicable legislationPublic Finance Management Act

“ A framework of acceptable levels of materiality and significance, which must be agreed between the accounting authority and the executive authority, could not be provided as required by Treasury Regulation 28.3.1.”

CORRECTIVE ACTION

BSA is in the process of reviewing its policies, therefore the above matter will be addressed accordingly with the consultation of all stakeholders for advice.


Non-compliance with applicable legislation Governance Framework

  • “The governance principles that impact the auditor’s opinion on the financial statements are related to the responsibilities and practices exercised by the accounting authority and executive management and are reflected in the internal control deficiencies and key governance responsibilities addressed below:

    Internal control deficiencies

  • Section 51(1)(a)(i) of the PFMA states that the accounting authority must ensure that the public entity has and maintains effective, efficient and control.

  • Boxing South Africa did not conduct a risk assessment and a risk management strategy was not implemented which resulted in deficiencies in other key governance requirements as indicated in the table above.”


Non-compliance with applicable legislation Governance Framework

There root cause: Control Activity.

CORRECTIVE ACTION

  • After prior year audit the finance department has ensured that queries raised by AGSA are being addressed.

  • In order to enhance the mitigation of the aforesaid internal controls deficiencies BSA has engaged Mazars Internal Auditors to assist in performance of the internal controls and risk assessment.

  • The planned secondment by SRSA, of the Financial Management team which will inter alia assist with: (a) Corporate governance, and (b) Review of strategic plan, budget, business plan and other relevant documents, is welcomed as it will go a long way towards easing up BSA’s historic financial plight .

  • It must also be noted that BSA staff will utilise the funds from the National Lottery Fund to embark on a training programme in January 2010 which will enhance the quality of their work with regards to financial reporting.


Going Concern

Note 24 Going Concern

“In the current year the entity has incurred a net deficit of R4 327 497 (2008: R1 787 470) and the total liabilities exceed its total assets by

R5 951 045 (2008: R1 623 548). Boxing SA receives financial support in the form of a grant from Sports and Recreation South Africa. During the current year the entity’s operating expenses exceeded the grant received, which may indicate that the entity’s current business model is not sustainable on an ongoing basis. Additional funds will need to be secured in order for the entity to continue as a going concern.”

The last sentence in the AG’s going concern report attests to the fact that BSA needs more funds if it is to deliver on its mandate. In order to address this financial crisis more funds will have to be secured either from sponsorship or increased government grant.

It must, however, be noted that Sponsors are reluctant to assist BSA at this moment due to this accumulating deficit and media misconception.

It’s in the light of these aforesaid conditions that increased intervention by government is needed in order to sustain BSA.

(3) negotiate ownership over the assets that are being leased, and (4) determine other expenses that can be done away with.


MISCONCEPTIONS

Article dated October 2009 “ The Star article titled Boxing SA lifts executive’s salary 45% despite its insolvency”

“ Current board members received a combine R117 000 for their duties to Boxing SA. Former board chairman Dali Mpofu, who was paid R11 000 in 2008, received a further R6 700 in this past financial year, while current chairman Peter Ngatane was paid R21 000, up from the R10 000 he received in 2008.”

  • BSA Response

    The BSA board members are non paid private persons who do the job of boxing activities on a voluntary basis. They are neither paid by SRSA nor BSA, but are however, paid emoluments based on the meetings they attend and the hours thereof.

    There has been reports that while BSA has been in financial crisis board members went on to pay themselves emoluments amounting to R117 000.

    With an exception of Adv Dali Mpofu who is no longer a member of BSA, the amounts mentioned have not been paid to the board members accrue from the period of time they have been engaged and are still them. This is due to the financial crisis and will be paid to them when BSA recovers.

    BSA is set to consider the tax implications of this situation as the members may still be taxed according to law even though they have not yet received the money.


MISCONCEPTION

“.... chief executive Bongani Khumalo’s salary rose from R624 000 in 2008 to more than R1 ,million in the past financial year.”

  • BSA’ Response

    Mr Khumalo was appointed on January 2007, but only commenced his duties in June 2007 due to ill health. This means for the first six months of his contract he did not work. The quoted amount of over a million is therefore the sum total of his annual salary, backpay, leave pay as well as his medical expenses which were recovered form his monthly salary.


Closing Remarks.

With five months to go, BSA is in an all systems go state for 2009/10 Financial year audit, the current work force has a passion, determination and a drive to go where there is no path so that they leave the trail.

"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently." -Henry Ford.
