HR Statistics

Employment and vacancies

Reasons for staff leaving

Note: The resignations were primarily motivated by better opportunities elsewhere.

slide18

Summary on EE Status

  • The delays in the 2010 recruitments led to a lag in achieving the EE Plan targets
  • In 2012/13 Unit made 78 appointments, which improved the EE picture in the middle management and professionally qualified categories.
  • Challenges remain at the Senior Management level, where positions remain vacant and previous recruitments could not yield appointments, e.g. for Head: Stakeholder Management, Head of Finance, Projects Director.
  • We need to improve senior managerial representativity
    • Female senior managerial representativity is at 15%

Audit Outcomes

  • The emphasis of matter as a result of restating prior year errors, which were corrected in the current financial year.
  • Errors include: Employee costs; Rental paid; Intangible assets; Re-assessment of property, plant and equipment
  • Notwithstanding the reduction in the number of emphasis of matters structured risk interventions are in place to achieve no emphasis of matters in following financial years.
  • Progress on corrective action on 31 AG findings
    •  33% of findings addressed and confirmed by Internal Audit.
    • 24% of findings Work-in-Progress
    • Remainder of findings to be addressed before the end of the financial year

AG findings on Performance Information

  • In Audit 2011/12 the AG makes a finding that SIU should report on eight strategic objectives alternatively obtain express approval from Executive Authority for one strategic objective.
  • SIU applied in November 2012 for such express approval .
  • In the absence of such express approval the SIU advice to report on all eight strategic objectives
  • The implications of this is that SIU reports were not fully aligned to its the strategic plan.
  • However key performance indicators were in place to measure the strategic objectives and drivers
  • This gap resulted in a negative opinion on the performance information for Audit 2012/13.
  • The strategy objective (s) will be aligned to the October 2012 amendment of the SIU Act.
