  • Financial Performance Information
  • Sound financial management which emphasises
    internal controls and assures stakeholders that
    assets are safeguarded and transactions executed
    according to generally accepted business
    practices and adopted policies
  • Resources strictly applied in accordance with
    budget allocations approved by the Board
  • Actual overhead expenditure was R 332.3 m
    representing a variance of 0.85 under-spending
    for the reporting period
  • R150m of IDTs funds approved for poverty
    eradication programmes (Mud Schools programme
    in particular). R 94m was spent and the rest will

    efficiencies, working capital improvement and
    managing capital expenditure

  • Undertook a comprehensive review of programme
  • Strict verification and ageing of all programme
    related transactions up to an including the
    2005/06 financial year.
  • Results tested against strict criteria to
    determine reasonable expectations to recover such
    costs from clients
  • Based on this evaluation, the Board approved an
    amount of R57.7m to be written off in order to
    appropriately restate the balance sheet item in
    respect of total programme expenditure of R 3
    billion over the period (2005-2009)
  • Does not represent wasted or lost resources as
    contracts were delivered to the satisfaction of
  • Exposure of this nature is unlikely to recur as,
    since 2008, payments for services are drawn down
    directly from dedicated client-contract bank

    of main fund. Income partially applied to fund

    Committee which contributed to revenue receipts

    costs from public sector (and few private sector)
  • Developed a Costing Model to identify cost
    drivers, have a sound basis for determining
    management fees and baselines for future
    financial planning

Financial Performance
Financial Overview (Page 25-29)
  • Long-Term Sustainability
  • IDT established with a R 2bn government grant in
  • Until 2005, investment income from the balance of
    this grant covered operational expenses
  • Growth in business and volatility in market
    impacting on interest rates has resulted in a
    growing margin between expenditure applied and
    revenue since 2006
  • Capital base is depleting challenging the
    financial sustainability of the IDT post the
    2011/12 financial year
  • IDTs long-term Strategic Vision is aligned to
    social policy agenda (MTSF) as the development
    agency of choice.
  • Thus IDT has recorded its future funding
    requirements with National Treasury

    within a changing environment
  • 2008/09 Scorecard represents a combinations of
    KPIs and targets completely in the control of the
    IDT and those which are integrated with and
    dependent on inputs and cooperation of client
  • Summary
  • Achieved 11 (73.4) of 15 KPI and targets, of
    which 10 (66.7) were exceeded
  • Underachieved 4 (26.6) all of which were not in
    IDTs control

    such as the social infrastructure and social
    development programmes, will be delivered on a
    full cost recovery basis.

CEOs Report (Page 35-45)
  • Social Infrastructure Delivery
  • 83 of Turnover Social infrastructure delivery,
    largely delivered in rural South Africa, e.g., EC
    39.6 KZN 22.8. Thus supported government
    with the reduction of infrastructure backlogs in
    historically marginalised areas.
  •  Concluded and handed over eight (8) schools
    (Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga and Kwazulu-Natal)
    which were constructed with IDT funds as part of
    the Eradication of Mud Schools and Undesirable
    Structures Programme. Other outcomes of this
    specific programme
  • 24 contractors engaged on the projects, 21 (88)
    were women contractors.
  • Constructed 116 classrooms providing learners
    with first-time access to decent facilities.
  • All schools were provided with computer
    laboratories furniture and solar power where
    there no electricity is available and pre-school
    facilities at the primary schools. Such
    facilities are not typically provided at state
    schools thus these rural learners have the access
    to the infrastructure for optimal learning and

  • The IDT did not fully meet its programme
    expenditure targets because we were not provided
    with the funds to do so. Notwithstanding this
    challenge the IDT achieved R1.313 billion (88)
    against a targeted R1.5 billion, which in real
    terms represents a 13 increase on the previous
    years achievement of R1.167bn. The development
    impact of this programme expenditure includes
  • R632.5m of programme expenditure was spent on
    local contractors and labour, which includes
    R450m on women contractors
  • 53 581 job opportunities created of which 71
    were women and,
  • 2 195 persons received technical training and a
    further 13 259 basic life skills.
  •  Thus the IDTs model of social infrastructure
    delivery, which is grounded in labour intensive
    methodologies and the empowerment of local labor
    and contractors, has meaningfully impacted the
    individuals who participated in the programme as
    well as their households.

CEOs Report (Page 35-45)
  • Empowerment of Women
  • Introduced a Contractor Development Programme
    with the objective to meaningfully contribute
    towards the advancement and empowerment of
    disadvantaged communities, and women in
    particular, by
  • providing opportunities to existing contractors,
    as well as emerging entrepreneurs in the building
    and construction industries
  • developing a pool of capable, highly skilled
    contractors, and women in particular, able to
    compete with the best in sector and to benefit
    from the substantial budget available for
    infrastructure development and,
  • Creating sustainable and self-sufficient
    contractors able to run profitable businesses.
  •  Target 45 women contractors but registered 59
  •  25 women contractors were up-scaled on grading
    system of the Construction Industry Development
    Board as a result of contract values of the work
    they were awarded by the IDT.

Annual Financial Statements Page 61-106
Auditor Generals Report (Page 65-68)
  • The IDT received its seventh consecutive
    unqualified audit report for the year ended 31
    March 2009.
  • In my opinion, the financial statements present
    fairly, in all material aspects, the financial
    position of the IDT as at 31 March 2009 and its
    statement of comprehensive income and its cash
    flows for the year then ended, in accordance with
    the Statement of Generally Accepted Accounting
    Practice and in a manner required by the PFMA.
    Without qualifying my opinion, I draw attention
    to the following matter
  • The impairment of programme recoverable was
    highlighted as an Emphasis of Matter due to its
  • Material amendments resulting from the audit were
    reflected as an Other Matter

Financial Overview
  • The financial statements fully compliant with SA
    GAAP (IFRS).
  • Expenditure base exceeds revenue generation
  • Revenue generating capacity volatile due to bonds
    in investment portfolio.
  • Deliberate thrust to increase cost recoveries on
    managed infrastructure programmes.

Concluding Remarks
  • Proudly and confidently present the 2008/09
    year-end results to the Portfolio Committee.
  • Aware of the fact that the Committee might not
    have had the chance to witness the IDT at work
    during its Oversight visits
  • As is evident from the map at the front of the
    report, the IDT has clear and definite footprint
    in all provinces. Hence, we would like to invite
    the Committee to
  • Visit the IDT projects during the current year,
  • Join us with the public presentation of the
    2008/09 Annual Report in Tzaneen on 26 October

Thank you Thembi Nwedamutswu Chief Executive
