Background4

Background...

  • South Africa...Roads…Vehicles...Transport...Crashes...Death & Injuries...Consequences!

  • 70 year funding regime driven by an “accessible” revenue stream

    • Moved from protecting a wrongdoer from being sued to supporting victims

  • Compensation is fault-based and fault must be proven or excluded

    • Rulings and Orders are not always consistent

    • Great deal of subjectivity

  • Micro-economy has been created and is sustained by the RAF

    • Lawyers, Advocates, Assessors, Experts etc

    • Contingency fees charged in excess of 25%

  • 50% of matters on the Court roll relate to road accidents

  • Claimants are often not the primary beneficiary

  • Operational Context


Background5

Background...

  • Social Context


Background6

Background...

  • The RAF carries an extensive legacy, partly true and partly perceived, which was built over many decades

    • Compensation scheme that has not had revenue and expenditure aligned

    • ‘Insolvent and bankrupt’ for 31 years as a result of a provision for claims incurred

    • A “lawyers” business

    • Intensely bureaucratic

    • Inefficient, uncaring and impersonal

    • Fraught with fraud

  • The Board and management committed in 2012 to create a new legacy, one of delivering services efficiently and effectively to victims of crashes who need the support

  • Early signs of change are visible...

  • Unfortunate legacy

  • Opinion

    • The financial statement present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Road Accident Fund as at 31 March 2013

  • Predetermined objectives

    • There were no material findings on the annual performance report concerning the usefulness and reliability of the information

  • Compliance with laws and regulations

    • I did not identify instances of material non-compliance with specific with specific matters in key applicable laws and regulations

  • Internal control

    • I did not identify any deficiencies in internal control which i consider sufficiently significant for inclusion in this report.
