Aim of the MSDS
Background
  • The Aim is two-fold
  • The MSDS aims to rejuvenate both the SANDF
    Regulars and Reserves from the bottom up, thereby
    enhancing the SANDFs operational readiness with
    more young and fit members
  • The MSDS simultaneously imparts functional and
    life skills that present members with a
    competitive edge in the open labour market,
    compared to school leavers who immediately enter
    the labour market after completing school
  • The MSDS forms Career Stage 1 of the SANDFs new
    three-stage service system and was introduced in
    Jan 03
  • The MSDS has received good publicity in the media
  • There is continuing interest from other State
    Depts (eg the Departments of Public Works and
    Correctional Services) and the private sector to
    employ former MSDS members
  • 17 093 young people have completed, or are busy
    completing, MSDS service

Costing Summary
Future Planning
  • Costs for FY2010/11 FY13/14 based on
    assumption that NT allocation of
  • RM760,8 will be maintained throughout
  • Option 2 will minimise the cost for the in-year
    adjustment process, although from
  • FY2010/11 onwards the costs for both options
    will be equal, once Reserves trg for
  • the first intake of 2008 starts

32
Implications of 10 000 Intakes
Future Planning
  • Expanded post establishment table (12 000 MSDS
    nett gain and 3 000 Regulars nett gain command
    and control and support staff)
  • 20 000 MSDS in system vs 15 000 required by
    Defence Update 2006
  • More Junior Leaders to be trained for sub-units
    from current MSDS intake
  • Strategic Busines Plans, Budgets and HR Support
    Plans to be amended
  • Shortened procurement process required (uniforms,
    ammo)
  • Urgent repair and preparation of facilities and
    PME
  • Command enforcement of support functions required
  • Expanded medical support required to match
    expanded trg footprint
  • ResF Units to be involved in recruiting from the
    start to ensure that the Reserves feeder cycle
    works (One Force Concept)
  • 30 June 2007 in-year Fin Supplement to be known
    (lead times)

33
Way Forward
Future Planning
  • Minister of Defence signed Cab Memo on 24 May 07
    and Cab Memo submitted to Presidency and relevant
    Cluster Co-Chairpersons
  • Clusters are to submit their comments to
    Presidency
  • Followed by presentation to Extended Cabinet
    meeting for ratification
  • Once approved by Cabinet, project will be
    incorporated into the Government Programme of
    Action

34
Conclusion
  • The MSDS has brought about significant
    improvement in the SANDFs rank-age profiles at
    lower rank levels leading to enhanced
    operational readiness
  • 17 093 young South Africans completed or are busy
    completing the programme
  • The MSDS presents new opportunities for the DOD
    to form partnerships with other Departments and
    the Private Sector for employment and
    learnerships of young South Africans
  • Expansion of MSDS intakes, with the required
    funding, (Project 24 of Govt Priorities) will
    extend sustainable development opportunities to
    many more young South Africans
  • The MSDS is an established feature of the RSAs
    Youth Development capability and will continue to
    be enhanced
