PUBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO 12-2012 OF 11 MAY 2012
Mr LS Ngonyama (COPE) to ask the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation:
Whether her department achieved its objectives in the (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10, (c) 2010-11 and (d) 2011-12 financial years; if not,
Whether any persons were held accountable for such failure in the specified financial years; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details?
The Department can indeed confirm that it has achieved all its objectives since 2008. The Annual Report for 2011-2012 is currently being finalised for auditing purposes by the Auditor-General. There is every reason to believe that we will once again achieve our predetermined objectives. We have in the past always briefed the relevant Portfolio Committee on the outcomes as stated in the various Annual Reports and no concerns have been raised in the past that the Department did not meet its predetermined objectives.
No persons were held accountable given the aforesaid.
