Patricia de Lille says department’s failure to migrate to IT systems leads to corruption

Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille says the principle snag to her oversight job was the division's protection from utilizing data innovation frameworks, liking rather to work physically.

This, she said, empowered debasement to happen inside the division.

De Lille, acting chief general Imtiaz Fazel and Chief Financial Officer, Lesetja Toona, showed up before Parliament's standing council on open records (Scopa) to clarify the sporadic, unbeneficial and inefficient use inside the Property Management Trading Entity (PMTE).

The pastor alluded to the substance as having turned into a "banking account in overdraft", which had brought about questions around leases worth R4.5 billion.

Unsettled unpredictable use inside the element added up to R1.5b while vain and inefficient use stood s at simply over R132 million.

"We have a ton of excessive charges and underpayments in the office. We have now made quick work of what is causing the excessive charges… who is squeezing that button to overpay consistently.

"As far as the assignments for individuals who are squeezing the buttons - doing the consistent over use - I examined with the acting DG that the manner in which we will stop this is to eliminate the appointments from those individuals who should pay," De Lille said.

She advised the board of trustees that to date, the PMTE was not completely agreeable with the prescripts of National Treasury as six circumstances were advanced for the substance to exist, however just two circumstances were met. "76% of our financial plan is spent by PMTE - we are endeavoring to switch this up. I'll be giving the AG a report on 4 March to give a thought on how we have halted the decay of the PMTE - it is simply clear defilement.

"A ton of the leases throughout the years have been given over to the SIU. The SIU has had a decree beginning around 2010 and we are as yet alluding to a portion of these leases to assist with recuperating a portion of the monies for the division," De Lille said.
