4 Foreword In the State of the Nation Address (SONA) the President outlined the triple challenges currently facing South Africa namely, poverty, inequality and unemployment. As a department we are committed to this cause and we will make a positive contribution through the implementation of the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP). Enabling rural people to overcome poverty and inequality, continues to be the thrust of the CRDP, contributing directly to government s key priorities as articulated in the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF). The implementation of the CRDP in all nine provinces of the country is starting to bear results in terms of meeting basic human needs, infrastructure and enterprise development. In the coming financial year we would like to see the department fast tracking development in the rural economy, more so through infrastructure development in order for us to start developing rural industries, and provide access to larger markets and credit facilities thus taking advantage of the multiplier effects of government s large infrastructure programme. The net effect of these developments is envisaged to address unemployment and inequality in rural areas to a large extent. It is a fact that the most marginalised people in rural areas are women, the disabled and youth. As such, our programmes should ensure that these groups are the primary beneficiaries. In an effort to be a change agent in this regard, our department established the National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSEC) to provide skills to the rural youth so that they can have access to job opportunities. Government has greatly supported this programme and more financial resources have been allocated to the programme. The intake has been impressive; to date more than youth have participated in the programme. Our programmes will be implemented in a manner which gives effect to the promises of the Constitution to foster access of the previously disadvantaged to land, redress tenure insecurity, and do restitution for those previously dispossessed. To this end, we are working very hard in the policy and legislation area. We have conducted extensive public consultations with various stakeholders on the Green Paper on Land Reform and the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Bill through the National Working Groups, the National Reference Group, Policy Think Tanks and the public at large. The work undertaken on the Green Paper on Land Reform has progressed well, and it is envisaged that the Bills enabling the establishment of the institutions proposed in the Green Paper, will be presented to Parliament during The drafting the Green Paper on Rural Development should be finalised this year and thereafter submitted to Cabinet for approval. Over the past three years the department has embarked on planning and re-engineering processes to fast track the implementation of its programmes, concurrently re-aligning its organisational structure in order to improve its service delivery model. The Back Office which is the nerve-centre of the department has been strengthened. Our commitment to achieving our vision, through amongst others, Outcome 7, remains steadfast. We will improve our performance using the lessons learnt from the work we have already undertaken at various sites across the country. Action Plan 6, linked to the Animal and Veld Programme, will be implemented within the identified 22 poorest districts during 2012/13 financial year. 4 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

5 With the department s plans in place, coupled with the availability of the necessary resources, we should be able to achieve the objectives we have set for ourselves. Together we can do more! The Honourable GE Nkwinti (MP) Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform 5

6 Official Sign-off It is hereby certified that this Annual Performance Plan: Was developed by the management of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform under the guidance of Minister GE Nkwinti; Was prepared in line with the current Strategic Plan of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform; Accurately reflects the performance targets which the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform will endeavour to achieve given the resources made available in the budget for 2012/13. Irene Singo (Acting) Chief Financial Officer Mduduzi Shabane Director-General: Rural Development and Land Reform Ntsiki Mashiya Deputy Director-General: Corporate Support Services Approved by: The Honourable GE Nkwinti (MP) Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform 6 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

7 Accounting Officer s Overview In the beginning of the 2010/11 financial year, the department tabled its Strategic Plan for to Parliament. During the same financial year, and for the first time since its establishment in May 2009, the department also tabled its Annual Performance Plan (APP) for 2011/12. Both these plans outlined the new focus of the department in terms of its mandate. The APP focused specifically on annual targets for that financial year. Given that this was our first attempt at developing an APP, the Plan resulted in many indicators, some of which were not measurable. Both the Portfolio Committee on Rural Development and Land Reform and the Office of the Auditor-General have given us helpful feedback in this regard. Informed by the lessons of the previous financial year, we are happy to present a new APP for the 2012/13 financial year. The exercise of producing this APP has assisted us to seriously interrogate not only the APP for the previous year, but also the current Strategic Plan. We believe that, without any significant changes to both the strategic goals and the strategic objectives, what we present this financial year is a better product than the previous APP. The State of the Nation Address (SONA) delivered by His Excellency, the President of the Republic, President JG Zuma on the 9 th of February 2012, once again brought into sharp focus the centrality of a fair, equitable and sustainable land reform dispensation in South Africa. In the main, the address by the President highlighted the following three areas, namely, the inefficiency of the Willing Buyer-Willing Seller driven land reform programme, the slow pace in settling the outstanding restitution claims and the fact that June next year will be the centenary of the 1913 Land Act, which was the bedrock of the massive social re-engineering project of the successive Colonial and Apartheid regimes. It is the view of the department that the Green Paper on Land Reform that was published for public comment last year contains proposals that, if accepted, even if with improvements, will go a long way in addressing the challenges raised by the President in the SONA. We are also very happy that from the very beginning, the Minister insisted that the Green Paper formulation process must be open and consultative as far as possible. Since the conclusion of the consultative process, the department received over 300 written comments and more. Thirty organisations and National Government have participated. We hope that some of the proposals will be ready to be approved as policy by the Executive by the first quarter of the new financial year. Parallel to that, there will be an aggressive consultation process on the proposed legislation as contained in the legislative programme in this APP during the new financial year. This will allow the Minister to present the bills to Cabinet for approval. In the meantime, the department will focus on the implementation of the targets set out in the APP for the new financial year. We believe that with the continued guidance and leadership of the Minister and the Deputy Minister, the management and staff of the department have the commitment and capability to deliver on this new APP. We look forward to a robust engagement with our Portfolio Committee on Rural Development and Land Reform during the 2012/13 financial year.

11 PART A: STRATEGIC OVERVIEW

12 1. Updated Situational Analysis Continuing from the Strategic Plan tabled to Parliament the fundamental focus of the department s initiatives in 2012/13 is to continue improving the lives of people living in rural areas. This is going to entail increasing the pace of service delivery, particularly in the 22 poorest districts of the country as identified in the July 2011 Cabinet Lekgotla. The Lekgotla resolved that there is a need to upscale rural development programmes, including investments in rural areas and revitalising smaller towns. In response to this resolution, the department has identified up-scaling rural development programmes aimed at expanding agricultural production by small-scale farmers, extending core infrastructure to rural areas, increasing jobs and skills and revitalising rural towns, (including university towns such as Alice). Through these initiatives the department will be further addressing the triple challenges facing South Africa as expressed by the President of South Africa in the State of the Nation Address (SONA), namely, inequality, poverty and unemployment. The political mandate of the department as spelt out in Outcome 7 remains the same, while the scope of offerings of the department increased slightly to include the revitalisation of rural towns. The department is the coordinator of Outcome 7 being the creation of vibrant, equitable and sustainable rural communities and food security for all. In pursuit of these, the department in 2011 integrated the outcomes-based approach with its internal programmes and processes. All five outputs of Outcome 7 now form part of the department s strategic goals and objectives. These five outputs are: Output 1: Sustainable agrarian reform with a thriving small and large farming sector; Output 2: Improved access to affordable and diverse food; Output 3: Improved rural services to support sustainable livelihoods; Output 4: Rural job creation linked to skills training and promoting economic livelihoods; and Output 5: An enabling institutional environment for sustainable and improved growth. There was a court ruling on 18 th June of 2010 by the Constitutional Court with reference to the Development Facilitation Act 67 of The Constitutional Court Judgment on the Constitutionality of the Development Facilitation Act, No. 67 of 1995 (In the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality V Gauteng Development Tribunal & Others) which enjoined the State to remedy the defect in that legislation by June The proposed Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Bill will also seek to address the defect raised by the Constitutional Court. In addition to other land administration mandates, rural development and land reform are two key priorities of the Government pursued by the department. The Land Reform Programme is now implemented in a manner which gives effect to the promises of the Constitution to foster access to land to the previously disadvantaged, address tenure insecurity, and restitution for those previously dispossessed, thus representing a break from the past, without significantly disrupting agricultural production and food security. The Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) aims to alleviate poverty and food insecurity by maximising the use and management of natural resources, as well as by creating viable and sustainable rural communities. 1.1 Performance Delivery Environment The eight strategic goals remain as they are in the Strategic Plan (presented in Annexure B). The strategic objectives, however, have been reviewed to ensure that they are pitched at outcome level as required by the National Treasury Framework on Strategic Plan and Annual Performance Plan. Inevitably a review of performance indicators was also conducted to ensure that they are aligned to the revised strategic objectives and every attempt was made to ensure that they are measurable to allow for accurate performance monitoring and reporting. The revised strategic objectives are presented in Annexure C. There was a change in political leadership, being the promotion of Deputy Minister Thembelani (Thulas) Nxesi and his replacement with Deputy Minister Lechesa Tsenoli in October Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

13 1.2 Organisational Environment The department has an approved establishment of posts. The number of filled posts grew from in 2008/09 to in 2011/12. Over the MTEF period, vacant positions are expected to decrease due to the filling of core vacancies in the department. The department also strives, through the practice of process-driven organisation design to match people and processes to the purpose, vision and strategy of the organisation. The ratio of support staff to line staff is currently at 1:2. Support staff will provide support services to line function staff, especially on district level where the services were not previously available. This will ensure that line function staff has access to services immediately as opposed to waiting for provincial level staff to assist in the process to finalise work.

14 2. Revisions to Legislative and Other Mandates While the key legislative mandate of the department remains the same, it is working on a number of policy initiatives over the medium term. One key policy instrument is the land reform green paper which is currently being finalised after public consultations. Once the green paper is approved, a number of legislative changes will be formulated and presented to Parliament. The table below reflects the department s legislation programme for 2012/13.

22 3.2 Relating Expenditure Trends to Strategic Outcome Oriented Goals The Annual Performance Plan (APP) reflects the commitment of the department to undertake activities effectively linked to outputs that will contribute to Outcome 7 and other departmental priorities. The focus of this plan is up-scaling the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP), which will include the 22 prioritised poorest districts. The implementation of the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme, land reform and the settlement of the restitution claims still remain the department s core focus over the medium term. This is supported by its spending patterns and plans over the Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) years. Expenditure increased by R453 million from R6.7 billion in 2008/09 to R7.1 billion in 2009/10. This growth recorded an annual average growth rate of 14.1 percent per annum and was mainly attributed to inflationary adjustments. Over the MTEF years, expenditure increases at an annual average of 6.6 percent per annum. Programme 4: Restitution and Programme 5: Land Reform are major contributors in this trend as they jointly account for a total of R22.1 billion over the medium term to ensure the finalisation of restitution claims, the acquisition of strategically located land and ensure the implementation of the Recapitalisation and Development Programme throughout the MTEF years. In 2011/12, Programme 3 recorded percent growth due to the additional funds amounting to R901 million received by the programme during the adjustment estimates for the development of rural livelihood and the implementation of Animal and Veld Management Programme (6 peg-agriculture programme). However, between 2011/12 and 2014/15 the programme s budget decreases by a total of R107 million. Infrastructure Spending Between 2008/09 and 2011/12 the department spent a total of R38.9 million on the following projects: Cape Town, Mowbray, Van Der Sterr building: upgrading and installation of back-up generator; the upgrading of amenities in the Cape Town Surveyor-General offices in Plein Street; the upgrading, repairs and renovations in Pietermaritzburg Deeds office and Surveyor-General s office; the refurbishments of boardrooms at the national office in Pretoria; the upgrading of power supply and reticulation at the national office in Pretoria: the upgrading of the network centre at national office; Cape Town deeds office construction: site clearance; and head office accommodation: maintenance and repairs. The department is expected to spend over R5 million in 2012/13 to finalise the upgrading and installation of the back-up generator in Cape Town, Mowbray building and the upgrading of the kitchen and toilets in Cape Town Surveyor-General offices in Plein Street. Departmental Receipts Departmental receipts increase from R48.8 million (2010/11) to R65.3 million (2013/14) at an average annual rate of 8.25 percent and no major fluctuations are expected over the medium term. This is due to the fact that most leased farms are under the Recapitalisation Programme and once they become re-established, farmers will be able to pay their rental. It is also anticipated that there will be a general increase in sale of goods and services produced by the Surveyor-General as a result of anticipated economic growth. In a bid to reduce the cost of doing business, the department embarked on a supply chain re-engineering project to enhance its procurement processes, thus reducing the lead time in delivering the goods and services required in the department. This will see the department venturing into bulk procurement of commonly procured goods and engaging suppliers timely in order to afford itself sufficient time to negotiate for discounts. 22 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

26 4. Programme 1: Administration Programme Purpose The purpose of the programme is to provide strategic and logistical support in the form of executive and corporate services, acquire vehicles for departmental use, oversee departmental capital works and make a nominal contribution to the Public Services Sector Education and Training Authority. Key Deliverables for 2012/13 In 2012/13 the programme will focus on governance and administration by ensuring that budget expenditure is in line with the plan and that the department maintains a low variance of expenditure against the budget. The implementation of audit management action plans will also be a key focus area relating to governance.

This growth is mainly attributable to the implementation of the department s new establishment structure which saw the creation of the Provincial Shared Services Centres in all provinces as, well as the creation of the Enterprise-wide Programme Management Office (EPMO), and the centralisation of the provision of security services in the programme, as well as the provision of office accommodation. 28 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

29 Programme 2: Geospatial and Cadastral Services Programme Purpose To provide cadastral surveys, geodetic and topographical surveys, land information, deeds registration and spatial planning services, as well as technical services in support of sustainable land development. Key Deliverables for 2012/13 In 2012/13 the programme will focus on completing the state land register and developing Spatial Development Plans for rural municipalities. In order to ensure the efficiency of the Deeds Registration system, the E-cadastre system is being developed. The cadastral skills training programme is to be piloted this financial year. This training programme is aimed at developing the scarce skills in the area of cadastral surveys management. Changes in Programme Structure No changes were made to the budget programme structure.

32 Performance and Expenditure Trends The programme s expenditure grew from R277.2 million to R555.9 million between 2008/09 and 2011/12, translating to annual average growth of 27 percent. This growth is attributable to the implementation of the department s new establishment structure, as well as the implementation of outstanding Occupation Specific Dispensation (OSD). Furthermore, the programme received additional funding amounting to R167.8 million during the 2011/12 adjustment estimates to fund the finalization of the State land audit and to assist the municipalities with the development of spatial development frameworks. Expenditure over the medium term decreases by 17.7 percent due to the non-support of the department s reprioritisation to fund new functions that emerged with the new structure. The programme s focus over the medium term will be on updating the registered parcels of land on the comprehensive land register. 32 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

33 Programme 3: Rural Development Programme Purpose The purpose of the programme is to initiate, facilitate, coordinate and catalyse the implementation of a comprehensive rural development programme that leads to sustainable and vibrant rural communities. Key Deliverables for 2012/13 The programme is directly linked to the realisation of Outcome 7. Focus in 2012/13 will be on improving the quality of life of people living in rural areas through deepening participation, improving skills, building enterprises and institutions, and providing access to socio-economic infrastructure. The department will continue to roll out the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme in all identified CRDP wards with a focus on 22 priority districts identified by government for poverty alleviation. Critical projects for the programme in this financial year include those that will provide access to water, sanitation, energy, roads, etc to rural households; as well as those that enable households to have access to food. Job creation continues to be a priority in all rural development initiatives with the National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSEC) programme being one of the main departmental initiatives to skill rural youth. Service delivery forums such as the Council of Stakeholders will be empowered to ensure that rural people take charge of their own development. Changes to the Budget Programme Structure In the past the functions of the NARYSEC were funded under sub-programme 3.2: Rural Development Provincial Office. A sub-programme 3.3 NARYSEC has been added to the programme.

This growth is due to the roll out of the NARYSEC Programme, capacitating of the programme s establishment structure as well as the implementation of projects such as the electrification of rural households, provision of clean water and sanitation, establishment and registration of cooperatives and rural enterprises, access to information and communication technology, etc. Over the medium term, the programme s expenditure growth rate decreases to an annual average growth rate of 1.2 percent. This is due to expenditure growth rate decreasing by 28.3 percent in 2012/13, due to the non-approval of the department s reprioritisation to fund the new functions that emerged with the new establishment structure. The Comprehensive Rural Development Programme still remains the core focus of the programme. However, in this MTEF process special attention will be given to the 22 prioritised districts for the roll-out and implementation of projects that are supporting the CRDP. 36 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

37 Programme 4: Restitution Programme Purpose To settle land restitution claims under the Restitution of Land Rights Act (1994) and provide settlement support to beneficiaries. Key Deliverables for 2012/13 In 2012/13 the focus of the restitution programme will be on settling and finalising claims on State land and financial compensation claims. The Restitution Programme also seeks to address the inequality and poverty as outlined in the SONA by restoring land rights. Changes to the Budget Programme Structure No changes have been made in the budget programme structure.

However, due to the programme still having over outstanding claims not finalised in 2009/10, the department extended the programme. This saw expenditure in 2010/11 increasing to R3.8 billion to clear the restitution commitments. Over the medium term, the department will spend a total of R11.7 billion, translating to an annual average growth rate of 18 percent, to finalise over 800 claims. 38 Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Annual Performance Plan 2012/13

39 Programme 5: Land Reform Programme Purpose To initiate sustainable land reform programmes in South Africa. Key Deliverables for 2012/13 In 2012/13 the programme will focus on providing access to agricultural land through the acquisition and allocation of strategically located land.
