IMPROVEMENT OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE AUDIT
STEERING COMMITTEE
  • Main function of ASC is to promote communication
    and coordination between DCS and AG
  • Also serves as a forum to report on progress
    challenges in addressing audit queries
  • ASC comprises selected DCs, Directors and
    Auditor General
  • DCS reps selected on the basis of their
    appearance of their functions in Audit
    Qualifications
  • Meets monthly
  • MCC members do not serve in ASC. They serve in
    Audit Committee
  • Review meetings have confirmed that the ASC is
    effective in achieving its objective
  • Next task is to align work of ASC with other
    Compliance enforcement initiatives such as
    Compliance Improvement Plan and Risk Management

ACTION PLAN ON 2005/6 AUDIT QUALIFICATIONS AND
EMPHASIS OF MATTER
  • Action Plan is based on AG report, Portfolio
    Committee queries and reports of DCS
    Inspectorate, Internal Audit and Audit Committee
  • Approved by EMC and Audit Committee
  • Managed by DC Financial Management Accounting
    with managers who serve in Audit Steering
    Committee
  • Progress monitored through monthly reports by
    affected directorates
  • Objective is to reduce and eventually eliminate
    recurring qualifications while acting proactively
    to prevent new ones
  • Significant progress has already been made in
    addressing some of the qualification matters
    while others may take longer to resolve on the
    following interventions .

5
ACTION PLAN ON 2005/6 AUDIT MATTERS CONT
  • Significant progress has already been made in
    addressing the following interventions
  • Disclosure on APOPS
  • Medical Expenditure
  • Housing loan guarantees
  • BAS/PERSAL Interface
  • Policy development
  • Budget
  • Asset Management, Receivables, Pharmacies, Leave,
    Fleet Management and Payroll Control will take
    longer to resolve

6
CURRENT STATE OF EXPENDITURE AS ON 31 JANUARY 2007
  • The final overall expenditure of the Department
    as at 31 January 2007 was at 73.18 against an
    ideal of 83.33
  • The second phase of the Seven Day Establishment
    appointments made during September and October
    2006, have been captured on PERSAL, resulting in
    personnel expenditure improving.
  • The lower than ideal expenditure on Goods and
    Services is due to Property Management where only
    April to September has been billed to the amount
    of R149 million) and paid in February 2007.
  • The expenditure on Payments for Capital Assets is
    very low. Even though funds for the NGCC have
    been surrendered, there is a current backlog in
    billing for repairs and renovations. Facilities
    has taken up the matter with DPW. A preliminary
    indication has been given that at least R157
    million will not be spent in the 2006/07
    financial year. These funds will be rolled over
    to fund the Kimberley (NGCC) project as this
    projects funding was suspended during the MTEF
    for the 2007/08 financial year.

ADDRESSING VACANCY RATE
  • Staff compliment of the department has grown from
    33 000 in 2003 to 40100 by Dec 06
  • Full staff compliment of 7 day establishment will
    however be realised by 01 April 2008
  • The variance between the actual establishment and
    target of 7 day establishment contributes
    significantly to the vacancy rate
  • Attrition rate of the department (resignations,
    deaths medical boarding) averages 1500 per
    annum
  • Turn around time in filling advertised posts has
    been reduced from longer than six months since
    the appointment of recruitment agencies on 01
    April 2005. Department is working towards the
    ideal standard of three months
  • The strategy on recruitment and retention of
    scarce skills has been finalized
  • Occurrence of vacancies is closely monitored and
    addressed by Establishment Committee with
    relevant directorates at HRM and Finance
  • It is true that many professionals are employed
    under the CS Act rather than the PS Act
  • Department is considering the possibility of
    employing professionals under the PS Act and
    custodial and other staff under the CS Act. This
    exercise will involve a full analysis of the
    suite of benefits between the two options

VETTING OF OFFICIALS
  • The Department of Correctional Services
    prioritized critical areas for vetting purposes.
    The said categories include employees at senior
    management level, supply chain management, Human
    Resources and Classified Maximum Centres,
    nationally.
  • The Department has processed over 500 Security
    clearance forms (Z 204) to NIA for vetting. Of
    this number, about 290 cases have been concluded
    between the period 1999/ 01/ 01 and 2007/ 02/ 07.
  • NIA is proceeding with the remaining cases of the
    forms which have already been submitted.
  • The National Vetting Strategy approved by Cabinet
    in December 2006 approved a roll out of the SVIS
    to State Departments. This will alleviate the
    capacity challenges on the part of NIA.
  • The DCS has been identified for the first roll
    out. Once the roll out has been done, the DCS
    will be able to conduct its own vetting with the
    assistance from NIA. This initiative will enable
    the Department to expedite vetting in line with
    the Department s strategic plan.

    Prevalence Survey in 2006. Launched nationally in
