Budget Programmes (continued)

  • Services
  • Provision for various services, including:
  • Losses incurred in State housing guarantee scheme;
  • Maintenance of war graves & national memorials;
  • Decorations for public functions such as State funerals and inaugurations;
  • Acquisition of vehicles for Departmental use;
  • Skills Development Act levies; and
  • Financial assistance to Parliamentary Villages Management Board
key focal areas
  • The Department’s budgetary allocation is inadequate to fund the Department’s critical programmes as would be demonstrated
  • This is demonstrated by the Over-expenditure trend which amounted to R34m in 2001/02 and increased to R227 million in the 2002/03 financial year, decreased to R30 million in 2003/4
  • Capacity to spend has been built and is no longer a concern
  • In order to curb of overspending, the department had to stop certain services e.g. maintenance
  • Much stricter measures were implemented in the financial year (2004/2005) to ensure that the department does not exceed the approved allocation.
cost of maintenance backlog
Cost of maintenance backlog
  • Maintenance backlog is estimated at R12,5b
  • NDPW has a budget of R949m to maintain 100 972 facilities around the country, translating to about R9400,00 per building per annum
  • We require funding levels at R2.5 Billion a year for maintenance
  • This leaves us with a funding deficit of R1.5 Billion for recurrent maintenance per annum
  • The implications of under-funding as they relate to the main cost Items are:
  • Leasing: We will not be able to meet the accommodation needs of our clients e.g. SAPS requires more accomodation for the new recruits
  • Rates on State Property and Municipal Services: Services have to be paid to prevent termination which could have catastrophic results to public facilities like hospitals etc. In addition, this sphere of Government’s service delivery efforts will be greatly compromised
  • Maintenance: May result to non compliance with Occupational Health and Safety Act as some buildings are already in dilapidated state.
  • As a co-coordinator, our responsibility is as follows:
    • Create a supportive and enabling environment for the implementation of EPWP
    • Coordinate activities of public bodies involved in the programme
    • Facilitate learning between the various stakeholders
    • Monitoring, evaluating and reporting on the EPWP
    • Assist with the identification of opportunities to implement EPWP projects
  • Co-ordination of the EPWP
  • Implementation of the Leadership way
  • Repair and maintenance of public buildings
  • Improving service delivery
  • Clarifying our role
