Under expenditure in 2007/08

Department of Transport

  • The National Land Transport Information System and Arrive Alive project was not funded and the department identified and shifted savings within the department late during the 07-08 Financial Year.
  • The development of several policies was delayed due to sub standard bids received and delays in the payment to service providers who still have some work to complete.
  • The major areas and reasons for under expenditure in the Programme are detailed below:
  • 3.1 Economic Regulation (Road Transport) R1,3 million:
  • Funds have been allocated to this component for operational expenditure but no posts could be filled in time in this regard to perform the functions attached to this post - this was after the resignation of the project leader.
  • 3.2 Standards Regulation R3,4 million:
  • The Director attached to this component was only appointed during the second half of the financial year and he was only able to appoint the officials in the vacant posts during the second half of the financial year which had a negative influence on the operational expenditure (under expenditure). The appointees also had to be trained in service.

31

slide32
Under expenditure in 2007/08

Department of Transport

  • 3.3 Traffic Safety Systems R5,113 million:
  • This under expenditure relates to the non transfer of the eNaTIS project to the RTMC.
  • 3.4 Rail Transport Regulation R2,323 million:
  • Non appointment of any official in this component. One official in the then Rail Economic Regulation handled the establishment of the Rail Economic Regulator.
  • 3.5 Civil Aviation Security R1,625 million:
  • A service provider has been appointed at a late stage to develop a security system for the OR Tambo Airport. The appointment has only been finalised in the 2008/09 financial year.
  • 3.6 Maritime Safety and Bilateral Affairs R4,716 million:
  • Lack of capacity limited the development of the Maritime Safety Coordination Centre in its full context.

32

slide33
Under expenditure in 2007/08

Department of Transport

  • 3.7 Aviation and Maritime Investigations R3,483 million:
  • Funds have been allocated for the Commissioner of Civil Aviation which did not take place in the 2007/08 as clarity did not exist whether this function must be transferred from the SACAA to the Department. The FAA investigation and report and the published Civil Aviation Bill of 2008 give clear guidance in terms of the way forward with regard to this matter. It is envisaged that the Bill will be passed through the Parliamentary process during this Parliamentary session.
  • 4 & 5. The Programme did not have enough funds to procure the required number of bicycles (500,000), which delayed the tender process. Most of the under expenditure was earmarked to purchase 60,000 bicycles and a rollover of R30,98 million was applied for. The remaining funds were earmarked for the National Airports Development Plan (NADP) and a rollover of R7 million was applied for. The appointment of an appropriate service provider too eight months for the NADP.
  • The Programme also applied for other rollovers of R6,5 million for projects that were delayed and longer term projects, such as the National Transport Master Plan, development of the National Land Transport Bill, and the development of guidelines and standards for monitoring of Transport Planning.

33

slide34
Under expenditure in 2007/08

Department of Transport

  • Amounts budgeted to assist Provinces with the construction of the Sani Pass and overload control facilities could not be paid because the budgets were not included in the Division of Revenue Act, and because there was uncertainty about the appropriate method of payment and ownership of the assets.
  • The Treasury recommended that the Department should apply to roll over the funds and have the funds allocated to the Provinces via the Division of Revenue Act or Provincial Infrastructure Grant.
  • The Department, in collaboration with the Treasury’s PPP Unit, invited Requests for Proposals in September 2007, and planned to appoint service providers to develop the feasibility study for which R20 million was earmarked. The bids that were received were referred to the SARCC as the SARCC would be in a better position to manage the project. The Department applied to roll over the R20 million and to increase the transfers to the SARCC by that amount.
  • 8.1 All of the funds that were budgeted for the scrapping of taxis were paid to the Scrapping Administrator by 31 March 2008. R7,25 million could not be utilised by 31 March 2008, because the scrapping process was slowed down to accommodate the available budget.

34

slide35
Under expenditure in 2007/08

Department of Transport

  • 8.2 The Department withheld transfer payments to SANTACO amounting to R8,9 million, because SANTACO could not provide progress reports and financial statements as required in the contract.
  • 9. An amount of R14 million could not be spent on the RAF restructuring because Regulations had to be developed for the RAF Amendment Act before various provisions dealing with the liability of the RAF could come into operation. There were also delays due to the ill health of the Minister of Health, who has to be consulted on certain provisions.
  • 10. The Ports Regulator only became operational late in the financial year, because the CEO could only be appointed in March 2008. During the year, effective governance structures were developed, and premises were secured and equipped. The Department made payments on behalf of the Ports Regulator, but could not transfer the amount budgeted, because the entity only became operational in March 2008.
