FUNDING TRENDS OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS




Formulation of the problem
Formulation of the problem

  • Based on the above recreation and sport facilities are not adequately catered for though MIG

  • In order to meet the target of eradicating the R14 billion backlog by year 2013, there is a need to invest R2.3 billion per year over the next six year period.


Financial implications
FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

  • In order to meet our target a separate grant needs to be made available for sport and recreation facilities provision.

  • The grant would be allocated to the municipalities based on the identified needs.

  • An amount of R2.3bn per year is required is required in order to meet the 2013 target



Sport and recreation facilities surveys and audits
SPORT AND RECREATION FACILITIES SURVEYS AND AUDITS

  • 3000 sport and recreation facilities units identified through the audit in municipalities

  • Education Management Information System reveals that there are 56 000 sport and recreation facilities units in schools

    • This caters for 5-19 age cohort

    • Concentrated in advantaged areas (urban)

    • In disadvantaged areas exists low level 4 (scrape facilities)

  • R1.5bn to R2bn required to rehabilitate exist stock

  • R10bn over 5 years to provide new infrastructure to satisfy full level of service (level 2 and 3 indoor and outdoor facilities with adequate services such as ablutions and lighting)

    • To cater for inclusive 5-34 age cohort (including 20-34 cohort not neglecting the cohort above 34)

  • There is minimal need for level 1 facilities


Sport and recreation facilities surveys and audits1
SPORT AND RECREATION FACILITIES SURVEYS AND AUDITS

  • 117 of 231 municipalities vsurveyed

  • 58% of municipalities surveyed indicated a way to determine need but used a structure measure

  • 30% of municipalities surveyed have facilities open to any user, no booking, no control.

  • 36% do not charge for use

  • 55% have leases ranging in length from 3-99 years

    • New leases generally 9 years and 11 months

    • Leased facilities found to be better maintained than unleased


Sport and recreation facilities surveys and audits2
SPORT AND RECREATION FACILITIES SURVEYS AND AUDITS

  • An assessment of the BSRP projects (17 projects sample) revealed that:

    • 44% of facilities were poorly maintained

      • Lack of finance and human skilled human resources were primary reasons cited

      • Another reason was that in 50% of the cases the Implementing Agent was the District Municipality and there was no proper planning for O&M and handover to Local Municipalities


Sport and recreation facilities surveys and audits3
SPORT AND RECREATION FACILITIES SURVEYS AND AUDITS

  • 75% of the facilities were reported to be poorly utilized

    • Poor location of the facility in relation to the community and lack of sports promotion programmes were cited reason for non utilization

  • In line with the poor utilization 62% of facilities were reported to be poorly managed


Other data sources
OTHER DATA SOURCES

  • SRSA Internal Data Validation Survey

    • Data gathered from municipalities and sports federations on existing and required facilities

  • Department of Public Works Utilization and Contracts Unit

    • State Properties

  • Surveyor-General

    • Project Gijima State Land Audit to be completed in March 2008


Norms and standards
NORMS AND STANDARDS

  • Final draft has been presented for assessment by the unit

  • The norms and standards sets the minimum standards for provision and management of sport and recreation facilities

  • Sets minimum spatial planning requirement in line with national framework and best practices in town planning


Norms and standards1
NORMS AND STANDARDS

  • Develop design guide to help local authorities to provide quality sports and recreation facilities.

  • Formulate procedure for development and construction of sport and recreation facilities

    • This sets a step by step guide and requirements for the process of constructing a sport and recreation facility. (For example, needs assessment, feasibility study, a declaration which specifies the intended use of the facility, technical report outlining the way the facility is going to function, construction plan of the facility including topography of the area, architectural study and a comprehensive technical report on the construction materials and works with special focus on method of construction.

  • Develop sport and recreation facilities information management protocols and guidelines.

  • Develop facilities maintenance and operating guidelines and protocols (life cycle maintenance system)


Norms and standards2
NORMS AND STANDARDS

  • Develop appropriate estimated unit costs or indicative costs for each facility type taking into account the limitations due to such factors as geographic location of the project etc.

  • Develop guidelines for estimating:

    • Planning and feasibility costs

    • Capital project implementation costs

    • Operating and maintenance costs over at least ten (10) years post project completion

REGIONAL / DISTRICT SPORTS INSTITUTE MODEL


Implications of the model
IMPLICATIONS OF THE MODEL

  • Focus on rehabilitating and converting State Owned Properties not being used

  • Where none exists construct new Institutes

  • State funding institutions such as the National Lotteries Board Distribution Trust Funds to allocate funds based on national priorities

  • Establish a Public Private Partnership programme to supplement Government resources

  • Commence on a small scale (pilot form) to assess feasibility thereof

  • Whilst providing recreational facilities mass participation an athlete acceleration programme needs to be developed in conjunction with the key stakeholders

  • Sustainable ward based leagues need to be established taking into consideration existing competitions at local, provincial and national levels (Mayors Cups, Local Government Games etc)

  • A pool of qualified talent scouts needs to be established and deployed throughout the country identify talented athletes for inclusion in the Districts Sports Institutes Programmes


Short to medium term implementation strategy funds allocatd to srsa
SHORT TO MEDIUM TERM IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY (FUNDS ALLOCATD TO SRSA)

  • 81 projects currently under construction need to be completed at cost of R678 119 530.65

  • 30 projects on design and tender need to be implemented at a cost of R93 615 346.58

  • 47 projects planned and registered with DPLG need to be implemented at a cost of R133 370 973

  • Implementation of the new projects based on needs as identified by the municipalities and federations

    • Further community consultation before final approval

    • Primary focus on rural areas and ISRDP and URP

    • Integrate with other SRSA programmes

    • Focus on rehabilitation first. As new projects require longer planning period such to cater for statutory requirements such as EIA and DFA provisions




Municipal institutional arrangements and capacity
MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONAL ARRANGEMENTS AND CAPACITY TO SRSA)

  • Most municipalities do not have Dedicated Sport and Recreation Sections

    • Although even some smaller municipalities are beginning to have these units, there is a need to establish them in all the municipalities

    • This can be joint financial responsibility between National, Provincial and Local Government

    • Those that do have dedicated section need to properly align the functions of facility management and maintanance


Operating and maintenance of facilities
OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE OF FACILITIES TO SRSA)

  • New projects

    • No allocation for capital budget without a two year facility operating and maintenance plan and budget

  • Establishment of dedicated sport and recreation facilities units to take care of all the operating and maintenance requirements of the facility

  • Shift from caretaker based system to Facility Manager with a caretaker and programme management responsibilities

    • For example instead of a lifeguard train the life guard to offer learn to swim classed for children

  • To minimize maintenance costs explore use of other low maintenance technologies such as artificial turfs based on the cost benefit analysis which the unit has done


Conclusion
CONCLUSION TO SRSA)

  • It is clear that there is a need to build capacity at all level (National, Provincial and Local Government)

  • With cooperation and proper coordination of efforts by all stakeholders has a potential of improving on the provision and management of sport and recreation facilities

  • “Sport and recreation facilities remains a means to an end which is promotion of participation in sport and recreation, advancing and nurturing the identified talented South Africans”
