  • Progress by Cluster


  • Following the appointment of the national Executive by the President on 26 May 2014 (President’s Act No 135 and 136) various administrative and legal steps were taken to give effect to the new Executive portfolios.

  • The NMOS Steering Committee was established comprising the DG: Presidency and the chairperson, DGs of All affected departments and the DGs; DPSA, NT, GCIS and DPW.

  • NMOS governance structures were establish to provide for:

    • Support by centre of government departments to affected departments.

    • A National Project Team comprising subject experts to assist departments

    • Departmental Project Teams and work streams to do the technical work in respect of the transfer of functions, staff and resourses between departments

    • Various guides have been drafted and shared with departments.

    • The National Project Team and departments meet bi-weekly to guide progress.

NMOS Approach Endorsed by Steering Committee

  • The NMOS process is limited to giving effect to the Presidential proclamations regarding the establishment of new or amended Executive portfolios, the renaming and establishment of new departments, and the transfer of legislation between Ministers in terms of the Constitution.

  • Introducing new policies and strategies and concomitant resourcing needs fall outside the scope of the NMOS.

  • Designing organisational structures are limited to the realignment of organisational structures of departments and excludes restructuring.

  • The deadline for the submission of proposed organisational structures to the MPSA for a determination is 25 August 2014.

  • The NMOS process to be concluded by 30 August 2014. Departments that are lagging will be dealt with as part of residual matters.

  • Staff will transfer with existing conditions of service (COS) benefits and retain those conditions of service until reviewed or re-negotiated. reviewed or re-negotiated. COS must be addressed in the shortest possible time or before the end of this financial year

Legal Matters

  • Proclamation (No. 43 of 8 July 2014) was Gazetted to amend Schedule 1 of the PSA to establish new and renamed departments.

  • To facilitate the transfer of functions and resources within a financial year existing Departments were retained as holders of current Votes.

  • Whilst retaining the current Votes, new Votes were created for new and renamed departments in terms of the 2014 Appropriation Bill, 2014.

  • The National Assembly and the NCOP passed the Appropriation Bill, which was submitted to the President for signing.

  • The Votes created by the Appropriation Act, allows Treasury to transfer funding between departments as they finalise the transfer of functions and staff, in-year.

  • Practically, the GCIS becomes the new Department of Communications with its Vote and the current Department of Communications becomes the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services with its Vote.
