(Therefore E.Cape, KZN and Limpopo gets the major share of such funds. sec 214 (f))

      • Programmes is flexible; responds to crises such as cholera outbreaks; sec 214 (j)
exposition for indirect grants dora 5 emphasis on fbw
Exposition for Indirect Grants – DoRA (5) Emphasis on FBW
  • Equitable share unconditional grant;
  • 2003/04 will have so -called soft conditions
    • Free Basic Water (FBW) only possible in poorer municipalities with equitable share
    • Some municipalities not using it for this purpose

(public hear about the money but do not enjoy FBW)

    • A portion of R 822 million in 2003/04 earmarked for FBW on conditions
    • DWAF monitors implementation of FBW
    • DWAF will feed back to DPLG and NT to enforce conditions
    • Municipalities have duty to meet purposes of sec 214 of Constitution

dwaf s framework on indirect grants to local government 1
DWAF’s Framework on Indirect Grants to Local Government (1)
  • Before indirect grants are made, local government must:
    • Undertake water service planning (e.g. WSDP) and budgeted for O&M
    • Be able to implement, operate and maintain the services.
    • Demonstrate acceptable expertise
    • Establish mechanisms for reporting
    • Establish service provision agreements with the DWAF.
dwaf s framework on indirect grants to local government 2
DWAF’s Framework on Indirect Grants to Local Government (2)
  • Contextual issues regarding Indirect Grants:
    • Projects are managed and monitored internally by DWAF
    • Build Operate, Train and Transfer (BoTT) was the preferred mechanism
    • Infrastructure transferred to local government
    • Local government operates and maintains project
    • Revenue used to operate, maintain and sustain services
indirect grant continuance
Indirect Grant Continuance
  • Grant should continue for strategic reasons:
    • The water backlog needs to be eradicated in 2008
      • Projects need to be sustainable
    • The sanitation backlog needs to be eradicated in 2010
      • Projects need to be sustainable
    • Existing bucket systems to be eradicated by 2005
    • Grant helps build Local Government’s capacity to deliver integrated services
    • multi-year programme approach requires a stable funding arrangement

Water Services Operating and Transfer Subsidy

(via augmentation to the Water Trading Account)

Covers DWAF’s costs as interim WSP (operation, maintenance and staff costs related to provision function and refurbishment). Whilst DWAF is the interim WSP the operating subsidy is treated as a GRANT IN KIND utilised by DWAF until the effective date of transfer.

Upon the effective date of transfer the operating subsidy is treated as a CONDITIONAL GRANT (direct transfer) which is paid to the WSA to cover the operation and maintenance costs, the staff costs of those staff that have been transferred and agreed transfer related costs.

DWAF is interim WSP

WSA or its appointed WSP operates the scheme
