    • DCS requested on 25 March 2009 for consultant project manager to manage R250 million project. DPW have to date refused to appoint a consultant to coordinate the project and ensure appropriate capacity.

    For new projects l.jpg

    • Building Project Advisory Procurement process Committee has been approved by the Commissioner.

    • Committee to arrange first sitting and prioritize national needs.

    • Prioritized projects to be included in the Building Programme and registered with DPW for implementation when funding is available on MTEF

    Maintenance projects process l.jpg

    • Planned Maintenance budget is allocated to NDPW.

    • Regions send their priorities to Facilities.

    • Head Office reflect priorities to NDPW.

    • Final prioritization and approval for project funding is with NDPW.

    • DCS Facilities monitors NDPW progress on maintenance projects.

    • DCS allocation of NDPW maintenance budget over 2 years have doubled to R630m

    • Challenges with maintenance experienced by Regions require intense coordination and monitoring by facilities.

    • Limited maintenance funds of NDPW are available to address the backlog maintenance.

    Maintenance projects process23 l.jpg

    • Abuse of excessive replacement of parts by consultants needs to be monitored

    • The doubling of the budget also requires additional posts to ensure monitoring of appropriate expenditure.

    • Eroding of capital budget by funding required for dilapidation of buildings which then fall in the capital budget funded category and not in the maintenance budget of DPW anymore.

    Immovable assets management l.jpg

    • Government-wide Immovable Asset Management Act (GIAMA) of 2007 has been promulgated

    • User Asset Management Plan (UAMP) informs Treasury of the infrastructural needs of the department

    • Immovable Asset Management System (IAMS) is the system required to manage all DCS assets as per GIAMA.

    • Dedicated capacity and appropriate skills is required for the annual UAMP to be prepared for submission to Treasury

    Leasing l.jpg

    • Regions instructs DPW to renew or conclude new lease contracts.

    • DPW negotiates with landlords and pays leases, on invoicing DCS pay DPW

    • Budget allows for office and residential leases

    • Split of lease budget to allow the management of the residential lease by HR separately.

    • DCS in process of auditing of leases and contractual records.

    Municipal services l.jpg

    • DPW pays the municipalities and claim back from DCS.

    • The current budget of R412m appears to be around R70 to 80m short of the expected increase costs for 2009/10 as Treasury’s increase of 9% is not market related to increase of municipal services anticipated.

    • Improved monitoring of consumption targets per area will be implemented to reduce municipal costs.

    • Additional funding need to be allocated to address expected over-expenditure and to accommodate electricity increases..

    Challenges l.jpg

    • Service Level Agreement to be finalised with NDPW, draft to made available to DCS for consideration.

    • DPW execution and service delivery to be improved. NDPW to prioritise cash flow and progress meetings to ensure attendance of Regional Managers

    • Long delivery periods for projects (service delivery standards) to be addressed and appropriate responsiveness on emergency projects.

    • Audit and delivery of emergency generators to be addressed

    • Site clearance delivery times have delayed delivery of projects

    • Sufficient funding for new and maintenance projects. Seamless replacement of maintenance projects with new projects. Should avoid long periods day to day maintenance must be used as deterioration of facilities accelerates during these periods, as inexperienced contractors are used to maintain complex installation.

    Challenges continue l.jpg
    CHALLENGES Continue

    • NDPW are still developing a new immovable asset management system as custodian. DCS needs have not been addressed and records of the function have not been supplied for detail assessment.

    • Appointment of consultant project managers to coordinate consultant teams to ensure delivery and detailed reports on major projects

    • Challenges are faced with short lease contracts being entered into by NDPW that results in landlords not wanting to extend lease

    • NDPW lack of control and incentive on value engineering to ensure value for money on projects. Savings can be extensive if appropriately skilled and experienced consultants are appointed for sophisticated installation for sophisticated installation
