Title: National Public Works Immovable Asset Register Programme (IAR) August 2012

National Public Works Immovable Asset Register
Programme (IAR) August 2012
Executive Summary
  • DPW embarked on the reconstruction of its IAR in
    November 11 and has completed an extensive
    exercise of
  • analysing the deeds database other relevant
    registers/ information sources to assist in
    determining which properties are National,
    Provincial or other custodians
  • defining a fair value model which will be applied
    to properties as the carrying value going forward
  • defining a new operating model to better manage
    the IAR and DPWs concurrent mandate going
  • This reconstruction exercise has identified a
    significant amount of work that is required to
    resolve a multitude of unresolved legacy issues
    which requires extensive interaction with DRDLR,
    Provinces, NT and other stakeholders
  • The approach adopted by the IAR programme will
    ensure that a baseline compliant IAR is produced
    covering all required assertions (completeness,
    accuracy, ownership etc)
  • The gaps identified indicate that a significant
    amount of work (including physical inspections)
    is required in order to comply with NT and audit
    requirements as current compliance level is in
    the region of 40-50.
  • DPW HO and Regional teams are in the process of
    completing data analysis and cleansing that arose
    from Deeds comparisons and are expected to
    complete this by (1) 30 Sep 12 and (2) 31 Dec 12
  • The cleansed data will form the basis of physical
    inspections from Oct 12 to Aug 13 to confirm
    information required to comply with requirements
  • The position with the Provinces and compliance
    with NT Sector Specific Guide will be regularised
    by March 2013 with relevant follow up work by Aug
  • Our target is to have a substantially complete
    and compliant IAR by March 2013 with required
    follow up of remaining gaps to be completed by
    Sep 13

Executive Summary - Key successes
  • There is a clear plan outlining what needs to
    done to produce a baseline compliant IAR
    incorporating all work previously done (where
  • Our time spent on extensive analysis, research
    and consultation with relevant stakeholders has
    confirmed the complexity and extent of work
    required which was addressed in prior projects
  • We have engaged extensively with stakeholders
    such as the AG, OAG, the Provinces to confirm our
    plan. We are again meeting with the AG during
    August 12 to confirm deliverables.
  • We have developed a custodian framework which
    will inform disclosure requirements and provide
    clarity going forward
  • We have developed a fair value model to value the
    IAR by Mar 2013 and a compliant capitalisation
    policy to ensure the IAR remains properly valued
    going forward

Executive Summary - Key challenges risks
  • We are still experiencing challenges in working
    with key stakeholders such as Deeds, CSG and
    other custodians to ensure that the right
    information and decisions are forthcoming to
    resolve state land issues and incorporation in
    correct IARs / financial statements
  • Mobilising sufficient resources in time given
    that significantly more work is required than
    originally anticipated due to
  • unresolved legacy issues (e.g. finalising
    devolution of provincial properties) and
  • exceptions arising from data analysis and deeds
  • There is still a material risk attached to the
    data available to inform fieldwork requirements
  • Mobilising (in time) the requirements of DPWs
    concurrent mandate
  • Implementing a revised operating model (in time)
    to continue maintaining the IAR
  • Incorporating work previously performed or
    performed by other State departments in line with
    our timelines, e.g.
  • Defence UAMPS
  • CSG state land audit

Background to DPWs Asset Register
  • Prior 1994, there was no comprehensive
    computer-based register of state-owned immovable
    assets. Information on assets was captured in a
    variety of disjointed inventories, most of which
    were manual paper-based systems.
  • In 1995 the Department of Public Works commenced
    with the compilation of a comprehensive
    computer-based inventory of immovable assets
    under the control of both national and provincial
    custodians. The project was undertaken with the
    assistance of private contractors and completed
    in 1999.
  • The information that was gathered included
    physical address of properties cadastral
    description and extent of land parcels
    utilisation and users of properties zoning and
    potential use of properties and photographs and
    footprint sketches of sites and improvements.
  • In order to address the gaps identified from the
    above-mentioned project, in 2005 DPW embarked on
    the Asset Register Enhancement Programme (AREP)
    and was completed on 31 March 2008, to enhance
    the asset register. The scope of the project
    focused only on 33 555 immovable assets and the
    following information was enhanced
  • Linking of land parcels with improvements
  • Measuring floor areas of buildings where such
    information was not previously captured
  • Establishing use and identity of occupants
  • Capturing servitude rights over selected state
    properties and
  • Capturing photographs, drawings and footprints of
    improvements for the selected properties.
  • Servcon and Intersite Solutions were further
    appointed in December 2007 to verify the
    essential information fields of DPWs and
    provincial Public Works asset registers and
    conduct condition assessments on State-owned
  • In 2009, DPW and the service providers resolved
    to put the project on hold in order to verify the
    authenticity of data to determine the amount
    payable to the service providers.
  • Asset register is a continuous exercise due to
    the incompleteness and inaccuracy of information

Applicable assertions
Assertion Approach Comment
Completeness -Use of deeds download in conjunction with DRDLR extensive reconciliation of data with other state land custodians for all registered properties. -Deeds / Aktex is used as a basis and substantiated with other documents e.g. Original Title deeds SG diagrams -IAR fields checked against NT minimum requirements - Compliance with the Sector specific guide, position with provinces confirmed (List A/B) to determine who discloses what. Dependencies -CSG for provision of surveyed land -Deeds for the registration of unregistered land -Vesting process for National and Provincial properties but we are reconstructing a complete position by virtue of Deeds analysis recon -Provinces confirming properties supplied to the AG and Provincial Usage properties(List A/B)
Accuracy Reliability - Initial reference is made to the Aktex and substantiated by original title deeds and SG diagrams for accuracy. - Data cleansing performed and fieldwork to be performed Dependencies Availability of original title deeds/ docs Surveying of land
Ownership Rights Obligations -Ownership is confirmed as per Aktex / Title Deed -Surveying of state land to confirm ownership -Physical verification to prove property use confirm custodian Dependencies Surveying process scheduled to be completed by 31 March 2014
Existence - Physical verification to prove existence and have photos, GPS Coordinates SG diagrams as portfolio of evidence For 2012/13, 60-70 of properties will have been verified.
Valuation -FV model developed and in process of socialising To be applied 2012/13
Presentation Disclosure -Extensive interaction with provinces, DRDLR and other custodians Aim for 2012/13 is to have first proper consolidated view and to ensure right properties disclosed in right AFS
Completeness will be qualified until CSG
completes survey process , but IAR Programme aims
to provide a reconciled position of State land
by 2012/13

Key results of analysis conducted thus far
Analysis of Deeds properties
Total state land 182 345
Identified as provincial (111 937)
Identified as DRDLR (25 258)
Deemed National DPW 45 150
  • As a result of quantifying the above position,
    extensive engagement and confirmation with other
    custodians stakeholders is required before
    finality can be reached
  • We are still in the process of analysing and
    confirming above statistics
  • This is a complex process there are still
    significant challenges in identifying ownership
    given a multitude of naming conventions and given
    that the vesting process is still underway
  • National DPW has previously disclosed - 35 000
    properties in its annual reports
  • We have so far confirmed - 27 000 properties by
    reference to Aktex as being National DPWs
  • The remainder is currently being analysed and
    categorised and will be subject to relevant field
    work if required
  • Of the - 50 000 properties identified on our
    current IAR as potentially being provincial
    properties, we have confirmed that - 16 000 are
    indeed provincial properties that we are still
    required to disclose as they have not been vested
    by the provinces (NT sector specific guide
    requires DPW to disclose such)
  • The remainder is currently being analysed and
    forms part of the current engagement with the
    provinces to confirm disclosure requirements by
    National and Provincial DPWs

Position with provinces
  • It is clear from above that a significant amount
    of work is still required to clarify the position
    with provinces and to ensure accuracy and
    consistency of disclosure required in terms of
    current applicable frameworks
  • National DPW has allocated a specific team to
    resolve this by March 2013 in order to provide a
    consistent and reconciled national view of all
    state land
  • National DPW is engaging at MINMEC, HOD and GIAMA
    forums to address the above

Vesting process
  • Our focus to date has been on laying the
    foundations to address all assertions required to
    produce a baseline compliant IAR
  • We are aware that progress on vesting is
    significantly behind target at all levels of
    government (DPW 40,DRDLR 33, Provinces 16) in
    order to achieve the target date set at 2014 in
    terms of vesting master plan (agreement between
    DRDLR, DPW, Provinces)
  • We have completed the design of required
    interventions to address the vesting backlog in
    consultation with DRLDR and will implement
    revised process by Sep 12
  • Progress statistics and proposed intervention
    provided in Appendix
  • stats sourced from DRDLR

DPWs current vesting process is not properly
structured and not managed appropriately. There
is a lack of information given the current state
of the IAR and inadequate project management.
An enhanced vesting process has been designed
in consultation with DRDLR and will be
implemented in September 2012.
