  • Objectives of Asset Management
  • Units specific purpose is to ensure that
    immovable asset owned and/or utilised for
    delivering various government services yields
    functional, economic and social benefits to the
    State for improved service delivery

Key Performance Areas 2008 -2009
  • Provide efficient and effective Asset Management
  • Implementing GIAMA-contribution to poverty
    alleviation and job creation, improving service
    delivery, complying with corporate governance
  • Promoting BEE and contributing to the

  • Supporting Expanding Public Works Programme
  • Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative and
    (ASGISA) Joint Initiative for Priority Skills
    Acquisition (JIPSA)
  • Implementation plan for the Turnaround Strategy

National Infrastructure Maintenance Strategy
  • Cabinet has recognized the importance of
    infrastructure maintenance within government and
    the role that effective maintenance will play in
    support of ASGISA.
  • To this end cabinet has approved the National
    Infrastructure Maintenance Strategy (NIMS) and
    the Department of Public Works has been tasked
    with leading the implementation of the programme
    to deliver on the strategy.
  • Implementation of the strategy requires
    significant coordination within government, in
    order to ensure that all the organs of state plan
    effectively for and implement maintenance of
    their strategic infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure, in the form of public buildings,
    roads, water and sewerage systems, electricity
    and other services, supports quality of life and
    is the foundation of a healthy economy.
  • NIMS is going to be formally launched before June

Asset Management Plans and GIAMA Implementation
  • Are assessed in relation to their performance,
    suitability, condition and the effect of the
    condition on service delivery ability and
  • Assets are decommissioned in line with assessment
  • Asset management has completed the first set of
    User Immovable Asset Management Plans (UAMPs) and
    embarked on the second phase.
  • Guidelines for the Custodian Immovable Asset
    Management Plans (CAMPs) will be completed by 30
    July 2008 and the actual CAMP will be in place
    during the 2008/09 fiscal year.

Access for People with Disabilities (AMs APEX
Priority 1)
  • Government has an obligation to make its
    buildings and facilities accessible to all its
    citizens, including people with disabilities.
  • The following categories of people are affected,
    include but not limited to physically disabled
    (minor to quadriplegia), ambulatory problems
    (from temporary to problems due to age
    infirmity), blind and partially sighted, hearing
    impaired, speech impaired, intellectually
    challenged and minors and the aged.
  • Although an amount of R 63 million was to be
    prioritised from the maintenance budget, it has
    since been resolved that the operations branch
    make access for people with disabilities
    mandatory in all new buildings specifications.
  • The old buildings will have to be prioritised
    from respective client departments capital

Rehabilitation of Unutilised State Buildings
(AMs APEX Priority 2)
  • With a view of enhancing the value of State
    immovable assets and improving service delivery
    to clients, the department will embark on the
    rehabilitation of State-buildings primarily for
    use by government departments.
  • Priority will be given to properties that are
    strategically located to support the functions of
    the client departments.
  • Also, the properties that would stimulate
    economic development in all regions in the
    country will be given a priority.
  • An amount of R 233 million is required for
    2008/09, of which R 90 million from the Trading
    account augmentation has already been set aside.

Energy Efficiency Code
  • The Energy Code of conduct will, in essence,
    stand as a commitment between the Department of
    Public Works and its users to support specific
    objectives of the National Energy Efficiency
    Strategy as far as they relate to the buildings
    and facilities which are used by the DPW itself
    as well as those that are under its
  • Hence, in January 2008, the National Electricity
    Response Team comprising relevant national
    government departments, metropolitan
    municipalities and their agencies, Eskom and
    relevant regulatory bodies in order to align
    themselves with the goals set for improving
    energy efficiency and conserving power.
  • To this end, the department of Public Works has
    established short, medium and long term
    interventions to be implemented with a major
    element of this intervention as the commitment of
    the Government immovable assets users and DPW
    lessors to implement initiatives that improves
    energy efficiency.

Prioritisation of Capital and Maintenance
  • The department annually embarks on prioritisation
    of maintenance and capital budgets with a view to
    compile an annual implementation programme.
  • The department is currently developing policy and
    strategy for maintenance to facilitate
    development of maintenance planning for every
    fiscal year.
  • Summarised below is the short-term prioritization
  • Statutory compliance with respect to the
    following legislation OHSA, PFMA, PPPFA, other
    Land, Environmental and Safety Legislation
    Security measures e.g. prevention of escapes and
    safe-keeping of firearms.
  • MTEF Prioritisation has an added criteria viz.
    EPWP, Project consolidate, ASGISA, APEX

Border Control Operational Co-ordination
Committee (BCOCC)
  • The BCOCC portfolio aims to integrate,
    coordinate, plan and programme manage all
    physical infrastructure and ICT developments on
    land, air, sea and the rail ports of entry (the
    Border-line) on behalf of numerous departments
    (like SAPS, SARS, Home Affairs, Agriculture,
    Health and NIA).
  • DPW has been mandated to chair the BCOCC
    Infrastructure Committee.
  • Budget allocations for the 2008/2009 stand at
    R478 820 000. 2010 Infrastructure Projects (Ports
    of Entry) include Lebombo Port of Entry
    Redevelopment (RSA / Mozambique), Golela Port of
    Entry Redevelopment (RSA / Swaziland) and
    Skilpadshek Port of Entry Redevelopment (RSA /

Asset Register Enhancement
  • A more co-coordinated approach is implemented to
    accelerate improvement of the asset register.
  • The asset register enhancement project in
    2005/06, was put in place in order to improve
    data integrity of the departments asset
    register, service delivery and to facilitate
    asset and property management in the department.
  • Phases 1 and 2 entail the collection, research
    and verification of property information as well
    as the capturing of new and missing verified
  • Continuous identification of assets yet to be
    accounted for.
  • The interoperability of Information Systems (PMIS
    and WCS)

Condition Surveys
  • The unit has embarked on the Condition Audits of
    the State owned properties that would establish
    the status quo for each building and facility has
    to be as well as all those buildings that are
    found, (via the status quo reports) to be in need
    of upgrade.
  • Funds and manpower are being procured for
    investment to effect the required improvements.
  • The completion of this exercise is expected to be
    31 March 2009.

  • The department is also researching affordable
    system for property valuations that comply with
    accounting standards, in particular GAAP in a
    Trading account environment.
  • Valuation standards and methodology which
    encompasses three valuation templates, namely
    depreciated replacement cost, income
    capitalisation and comparative sales method, have
    been submitted for approval by the National
  • This unit is on track with the completion of all
    residential portfolio and 30 remaining assets.
  • For 2008/07, this is being done in-house as the
    budget allocation kicks off in the fiscal year
    2009/10 with R 30 million.

Client Value Proposition (CVP)
  • During 2007/08 DPW signed 90 of the MOUs with
    respective client departments
  • Once the signing of all SLAs is complete, the
    Department will develop Client Value Propositions
    (CVPs) for all clients.
  • CVPs will be constructed after finalisation of
    SLA where service delivery standards will be
    articulated and other products and services, that
    the department offers, will be clearly defined.
  • It has to be noted however, that the capacity
    within KAM will need to be enhanced in order to
    handle the sophisticated expectations of the CVP.
