Parliamentary Question: Usage of Consultants



DATE OF PUBLICATION: Friday, 19 February 2010


Dr C P Mulder (FF Plus) to ask the Minister of Home Affairs:†

(1) Whether her department has made use of consultants in the (a) 2004-05, (b) 2005-06, (c) 2006-07, (d) 2007-08, (e) 2008-09 financial years and (f) during the period
1 April 2009 up to the latest specified date for which information is available; if so, (i)(aa) how many and (bb) which consultants and consultancies were used in each of these financial years, (ii) what amounts were paid to each consultant or consultancy in each of these financial years and (iii) who are the directors of each of the consultancies that her department used in each of these financial years;
(2) whether any of the directors and shareholders of the consultancies have any links with the ruling party; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are these links;
whether any persons who are currently consultants or owners of consultancies were formerly in the employ of her department; if so, (a) who are they, (b) why did they leave the employ of her department, and (c) what is the total financial value that has been paid out to each one of these consultants?


(1)(2)(3) This Question’s required response, will take a long time, because the research
that is required to be undertaken, has to cover a period of, just, over six (6)
years. For this reason, the Honourable Member is, kindly, advised to source out
the required information from the previous Department’s Annual Reports of the
years under question.
