1850

Mr MW Makhubela (COPE-Limpopo) to as the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans

Whether, with reference to Programme 3, Landward Defence of 2010, her department has analysed the reasons for the 100% increase in expenditure on computer services from 2007 to 2010; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

REPLY:

The question is based on table 21.6 in the 2010 ENE as attached in Appendix A. This table indicates the Outcome for 2006 to 2008 and the Plan/Vote for 2009 (In Year) as well as the MTEF 2010 to 2012. The 100% increase as indicated is from 2006 to 2010 (4 years – 49.4 to 99.6) and not 2007 to 2010 (3 years – 54.1 to 99.6).



If the actual increase between 2007 and 2010 is taken into account as attached in Appendix B the increase between 2007 and 2010 was 61.4%. However between 2007 and 2008 there was an above average increase of 51%. According to CMIS information this was due to the replacement of obsolete ICT equipment within the Landward Programme which then stabilised in the future years.
