The department in consultation with State Information Technology Agency, Sita, facilitated the implementation of National e- Government Strategy and Roadmap. The National e-Services Portal was developed, e- service from selected government departments were uploaded on the National e-Services Portal, which is live and interactive. However, hon Chairperson, Sita has been placed under fire this past week due to constant down
time. This very House complain about how it is negatively affecting various departments.
The NFP commends the department for achieving 92% of their plan targets as outlined in its 2018-19 Annual Performance Plan.
A budget spending at 99% of its total budget allocation, the NFP notes that underspending is due to post that are not filled. The NFP also notes that SA Post Office expenditure exited the budget by R600 million mainly on car cost and security cost for the Sassa project. The department must re- evaluate its planning strategy to avoid this in the next financial term. The NFP comments Sentec for reliable network availability by exceeding its target. Sentec has ensured has ensured employ development by exceeding training interventions target of 85% training interventions by implementing 163% after training plan.
Sentec has also exceeded 6,5% of the actual net profit after tax, spend target on supplier enterprise and socioeconomic development by spending 11,4% as a strategy
to contribute to socioeconomic transformation and black economic empowerment. This is indeed a commendable job.
However, we are agreeing with the recommendations listed in the report that the department and its entities must develop an effective system for improving financial capacity compliance with legislation performance reporting. The NFP supports the BRRR report tabled here today.
