Strategy Overview

  • In line with the Government Medium Term Strategic Framework, the current SIU strategy is outlined in two key strategy documents:

    • Five year Strategic Plan: 2015 – 2019

    • Annual Performance Plan: 2014/2015.

  • The SIU has formulated its new Vision, Mission and Strategic Objectives as follows:

  • Vision: to provide timely professional forensic investigations into maladministration and malpractice in order to protect the public interest and reverse the scourge of corruption in our society.

  • Mission: to use our unique forensic investigation and legal skills in the valiant war on corruption, by conducting forensic investigations into State Institutions and seeking positive results through litigation, disciplinary hearings and criminal prosecutions and by lending necessary assistance to other corruption-busting agencies.

  • The Ultimate Strategic Outcomefor the SIU is to uncover corruption, malpractice and maladministration and to win the war against these practices.

  • In order to strive towards these outcomes, the SIU has two Strategic Objectives:

    • Quality forensic investigations, conducting civil and other litigation.

    • Developing and maintaining strategic partner relations.

SIU Programmes to achieve National Imperatives

  • As a result mainly of the amendments to the governing legislation, the Special Investigating Unit and Special Tribunals Act of 1996, the SIU has shifted its focus from principally compiling reports to achieving tangible and concrete outcomes. It is accordingly transforming itself into a results-driven entity. The desired results of this transformation are as follows:

    • The period of investigation to be drastically shortened.

    • Evidence of wrongdoing handed over to state institutions and the prosecuting authority.

    • Offering assistance in the resultant disciplinary enquiries and criminal prosecutions.

    • Where civil litigation is justified, approaching the civil courts for effective relief, mainly recoveries of undue payments.

    • Thereafter, submitting a report to the President.

  • This new approach ensures that maladministration is not only exposed but that the guilty are duly punished and not allowed to retain their ill-gotten gains. It is also in line with public sentiment, which is that beneficiaries of maladministration and corruption should not be allowed to retain benefits. It will also be a more effective deterrent to maladministration and corruption as it conveys the clear message: corruption does not pay.

Performance Targets over the MTEF

The SIU has revised its performance measures to align directly to its mandate as outlined in the SIU Act. These measures also reflect the new focus of achieving tangible and concrete outcomes, not just compiling reports. The SIU will be actively involved in creating a scenario where as a result of SIU investigations, suspects are arrested and convicted, implicated officials disciplined and monies unduly acquired recovered and returned to the public purse.

Narrative on Budget

Total Income

  • The 2014/15 budgeted income is 1.3% higher than the 2013/14 actual spending.

  • The increase is mainly driven by the project income as the SIU’s right to charge and recover for services rendered to state institutions is regularised by the SIU Act.

    Expenditure trends

  • Employee costs are budgeted to increase by 15%.

  • This is due to the increase in human resource capacity.

  • The number is projected to increase from 564 in 2013/14 to 668 in 2016/17.

  • The entity has a funded establishment of 668 positions of which 87 are vacant.

  • The main driver for the projected increase in other expenses over the medium term is the costs associated with the establishment of the Special Tribunals.

Organisational Capacity

  • The SIU will be reviewing its operating model to align it with the new vision in order to achieve efficiencies in its core business.

  • A process to set up the Special Tribunal will be put in motion.

    • The new approach will require flexibility in employee numbers enabling the SIU to grow and shrink based on demand of its services.

    • New Specialists will be sourced.
