3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Resources Constraints

  • Funding Model for C-BRTA

  • Agency has been self funding entity however only it can cover is operational expenditure not capital expenditure

    While self- funding key challenges

  • Tariffs has not increase annually to cover such costs since 2004

  • Penalties not consistent and also at discretional Magistrate Courts

  • Law enforcement function add financial strain on the Agency finances in ability to generate revenues that cover its costs.


3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Resources Constraints

  • Human Capital

  • Due to an absence of leadership, staff development, performance management and career development was not implemented, as a result the Agency lacks critical skills;

  • High turnover at senior management level to provide stability;

  • Lack of performance management systems including senior management;

  • Large number of outstanding industrial relations and labour law cases that increase the risk of contingency liabilities not being recognised.


3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Resources /Capacity Constraints

  • Resources and Tools

    The status on tools of work are basically obsolete as confirmed on our financial statements, the accounting policies useful lives was extended on assets as follows:

  • Computer equipment (9 years)

  • Furniture and fittings (12 years)

  • Office equipment (12 years).


3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Resources Constraints

  • Resources and Tools

  • Visibility of inspectors, i.e. uniform and branded vehicles;

  • No dedicated roadside checkpoints at border posts and on major corridors;

  • Lack of capacity on major corridors and border posts;

  • Inadequate facilities at terminals and ranks to cater for increased number of passengers;


3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Budget Implications


3. Implementation of Strategic Plan3.2 Budget Implications

The above revenue is based on tariffs increase of 2004.


4. FIFA 2010 Plans

  • DoT estimates close to 400 000 international visitors, 300 000 intercontinental and 100 000 African visitors;

  • African visitors to travel mostly by road;

  • Permits currently issued: 31 849 for passenger vehicles and more than 74 970 for freight vehicles across different cross-border routes.

  • In addition to the estimates, the above vehicles currently on the routes and corridors would also be on the roads during the 2010 Soccer period.

  • Increased traffic flows along major national, inter-provincial and inter-city arterial corridors.
