Overview of the mandate of the new Department

Civics mandate

The DHA is custodian, protector and verifier of the identity and status of citizens and permanent residents in South Africa. This includes issuing traveling documents that are recognized by other countries.

Immigration mandate

The DHA controls, regulates and facilitates immigration and the movement of persons through ports of entry. It also services foreign missions; enforces the Immigration Act; and determines the status of asylum seekers and refugees in accordance with international obligations.

  • Other mandates specific to Home Affairs:
  • Funding and oversight of the Electoral Commission, Government Printing Works and the Films and Publications Board
  • Administration of the Public Holidays Act (1994)
  • Funding of political parties through the IEC
slide4

The mandates of the DHA are derived from:

  • The Constitution
  • The right to citizenship and thus to secure identity and civic status.
  • The responsibility of the state and citizens to ensure the sovereignty, security and integrity of South Africa.
  • The need to honour international commitments as a responsible member of the community of nations and as part of ensuring peace and a better life for all.
  • Legislation
  • Civic Acts: Births and Deaths Registration Act, 1992 ; Identification Act, 1997; South African Citizenship Act, 1995; Civil Union Act, 2006; Marriage Act, 1961; Registration of Customary Marriages Act,1998
  • Immigration Acts: Immigration Act, 2002; Refugees Act, 1998
  • International instruments
  • Conventions and protocols, mainly relating to asylum seekers and refugees (Geneva Convention, UN, AU and SADC Protocols).
  • Bilateral and multilateral agreements, mainly relating to immigration matters.

Civics value chain / system

Civics is stable - a basic right for all citizens

But critical systems and data are under constant threat from fraud, errors, cyber attacks and identity theft.

National Population Register (NPR) / HANIS

NATIONAL IDENTITY SYSTEM

Secure status changes – issue ID, marriage, death and amendments

Must secure citizenship changes; and naturalisation

Biometric data (fingerprints and photos)

Secured by early registration of birth.

slide7

Unpacking the vision of a transformed Department

  • At the heart of transformation is building a cadre of officials that is patriotic, disciplined, security-conscious, professional and humane.
  • Modernisation of systems through digital technology and integration is a critical enabler of security, service delivery and transformation.
  • The primary objective of the DHA is to secure identity and immigration and deliver related services that support the achievement of national goals; including security goals and efficient service delivery to all citizens.
  • The DHA must have the capacity to secure critical systems and related services by managing risks in terms of legislation, staffing, systems, culture and organisation.
  • The Department needs to be fully integrated into the security cluster (JCPS); while continuing to develop its relationships with a wide range of state, civil society and international stakeholders and partners.

The DHA must operate as a security department that delivers critical services.

Human Resource Strategy

  • In a continued strive to further the implementation of the HR Strategy, to ensure that the service delivery of the Department is optimised, focus is placed on:
  • 1. Human Resources Development:
  • In an effort to build leadership capacity and capability, the Department launched and implemented the Leaders’ Forum in July 2010 with the purpose of ensuring a shared mind-set and synergy amongst DHA leadership. Leadership development through the Leaders’ Forum and the cascading of developmental initiatives which introduce and maintain best People Management practices will continue.
  • In support of a culture of effective people management towards optimising organizational performance and service delivery, a revised Overtime Policy, Integrated Exit Management Strategy and Integrated Retention Strategy were developed and approved for roll-out during the 2014/15 financial year.
  • The design of a number of talent enhancement initiatives which include Career Management, an Occupational Assessment Framework, aligning SMS and MMS competency assessment results to Personal Development Plans and actual training accessed, mentoring pools, talent spotting and experiential learning frameworks will receive attention in 2014/15. This aims at improving the Department’s capability to acquire, develop and retain competent human resources.

dha contribution to national development plan ndp
DHA Contribution to National Development Plan (NDP)
  • The mandate of the Department is in broad alignment with the NDP. The inclusion of all citizens in democracy and development is enabled by providing them with a status and an identity that gives them access to rights and services.
  • Improvements to the efficiency and security of systems of the DHA, as in the case of IDs, have assisted the poor and reduced corruption. There has also been a major drive by the DHA, especially in rural areas, to ensure early registration of birth and the inclusion of all citizens in the NPR.
  • The DHA is putting in place the policy, legislation, people and systems needed for the secure, efficient and strategic management of immigration.
  • One of the pillars of the NDP is the building of a capable state that can play a decisive role in development and in the reduction of poverty. The DHA has embarked on a large-scale modernization programme that will enable the state to deliver services more efficiently and securely. The same systems will produce reliable statistics for planning purposes.
  • Social cohesion and nation building is promoted through providing the same services to all citizens and residents by means of over 400 service points; and through involving the community in government, using structures such as stakeholder forums.
implications of the national development plan ndp for dha
Implications of the National Development Plan (NDP) for DHA

Facilitate faster and more inclusive economic growth (top priority)

  • There is a need for immigration and refugee policies, legislation and systems / processes which will address national priorities and maximise benefits and reduce risks to the country.
  • The DHA can ensure the secure, effective and efficient mass transit of people and goods across land, sea and air borders to contribute towards the security and development of South Africa.
  • Efficient and secure ports of entry reduce the cost of doing business, encourage trade and enable regional development. This will be one of the main goals of the Border Management Agency (BMA).
  •  The modernisation programme of the DHA provides for mdern, secure immigration systems to attract visitors and facilitate their secure entry and exit rapidly. The DHA will thus contribute to security, stability and reducing corruption.
  • Focus will also be placed on trade presentation and diplomatic presence in fast growing markets (Asia, Brazil and Africa); as well as the implementation of a focused regional integration strategy with an emphasis on reducing red tape.

modernisation objectives and benefits
MODERNISATION OBJECTIVES AND BENEFITS
  • To transform DHA into a paperless environment

This will ensure paperless processing and electronic capture of applications including e-forms, scanning of supporting documents and workflow.

  • To ensure uninterrupted service delivery

Automation of processes will need redundancy like disaster recovery systems (DRS) and dual network or data lines, off-line processing capability, back-up power to ensure business continuity in case of unforeseen disaster.

  • To guarantee system performance and security

Security is central to DHA services and thus sufficient processing power (PC’s and Servers), active directory (AD), anti-virus software, firewall are imperative.

  • To guarantee non-repudiation and integrity management

To ensure that the occurrence and integrity of transactions between DHA and citizens cannot be refuted by the citizen or DHA official, both in an on-line and off-line mode through the use of biometrics monitoring tool and audit trail as one of the functionalities.

  • Quality of services

To provide an improved quality of service and ensure total customer satisfaction through increased turned around time of DHA products that are of high quality standards and designed according to international best practices.
