PRESENTATION OUTLINE


1 introduction

New Cabinet was announced on 25 May 2014 and introduced a number of changes to the previous configuration of the national Executive and departments in terms of sections 91(2) and 93(1) of the Constitution.

The Announcement had a direct impact on the structures in support of Ministers and Deputy Ministers: New departments were created, some with the transfer of functions between departments to give effect to government’s mandate for efficient delivery.

For the Department of Water Affairs, the functional content of departments will change to give effect to the new ministerial portfolio, mainly by transferring the sanitation function from the Department of Human Settlements (DHS), to form the Department of Water and Sanitation.

1. Introduction


2 presidential proclamation

The Presidential Proclamation no. 43 of 2014 (dated 8 July 2014) paves way for the establishment of various Departments in support of new ministerial portfolios. This includes the establishment of the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS).

The Department of Water and Sanitation thus incorporates the mandates of the Department of Water Affairs and the sanitation function transferred from the Department of Human Settlements (DHS).

The transfer of the sanitation function from DHS is facilitated through the National Macro Organisation of the State (NMOS) Programme, coordinated by the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA), National Treasury and led by the Presidency.
